        Collection of 112 Tony Shafrazi Gallery Exhibition Announcements, Posters, and Other Ephemera

      New York: Tony Shafrazi Gallery 1979-2002 - Collection of 112 Tony Shafrazi exhibition announcements, posters, and other ephemera, some circulated. The collection tracks Shafrazi's New York City gallerist career; notable artists shown included Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Donald Baechler, Kenny Scharf, Ronnie Cutrone, Michael Heizer, Ed Ruscha, Enzo Cucchi, Patrick Demarchelier, David LaChapelle, and many others. The collection begins with his inaugural New York City show with Oliver Mosset in 1979, shown in Shafrazi's apartment at 88 Lexington Avenue, and goes on to contain such important shows as Shafrazi's first exhibition of work by Keith Haring in a 1981 group show, his first exhibition of Jean-Michel Basquiat in a 1983 group show, as well as Basquiat's final solo show as a living artist, held in 1987. In addition to the gallery invitations, the collection contains five posters, and four 1981 artist biographies for Keith Haring, Donald Baechler, Jonathan Lasker, and Ronnie Cutrone. Throughout, the invitations themselves are graphically compelling; one can see in their evolution into increasingly deluxe printed objects, the growth of the contemporary art market. An important ephemeral collection tracing the galleries trajectory of one of art's most colorful characters. A few items showing light creases, but majority near fine to fine, some items circulated.

      1979 - OLMERT, Ehud. Typed letter signed. Jerusalem: November 1, 1979. Original typed letter, two leaves of stationary, each 8 by 12 inches (A4 size), staple bound, typewritten on rectos only. $2200.Original two-page letter typewritten in Hebrew and boldly signed by Knesset member Ehud Olmert, regarding Israeli abortion law. Written and signed in Hebrew.This angry two-page letter, typed on official Knesset stationery and boldly signed by Ehud Olmert, reads, in translation: "The Knesset, Member of Knesset Ehud Olmert. Jerusalem, 11 Heshvan 5740. November 1, 1979. [To] Member of Knesset Avraham Sharir, Chair, Likud Faction. The Knesset. Dear Member of Knesset Sharir, Pursuant to my letter to you dated October 30, 1979, I would like to call your attention to the following facts: A. As a Member of Knesset on behalf of the Likud faction in the Eighth Knesset, I was among the initiators of the bill permitting abortions. I was one of those who signed the bill, which eventually became law, and which included, inter alia, the clause permitting abortions in a context of social distress. B. I am not ignoring the coalition agreement which was signed between Agudat Yisrael and the Likud, and which concerns, inter alia, that law. In principle, I subscribe to the position that holds that agreements should be honored. However, in the past, in similar circumstances, the faction was always capable of taking into account the special situation of a single Member of Knesset, in the context of subjects that concern principles and conscience. C. (1) Under the present special circumstances, the consideration which is presented as most important is the fear that failure to pass the law will lead to the dissolution of the coalition agreement with Agudat Israel, and may even bring down the Government. (2) In the same context, I have been told that the Democratic faction, which includes seven Members of Knesset, including Deputy Prime Minister Yigael Yadin and Minister of Justice Shmuel Tamir, because it is not part of the aforementioned coalition agreement, will be able to vote against the aforesaid law. (3) It accordingly transpires that the vote by the Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Justice may directly contribute to the fall of the Government and the dissolution of the coalition. D. With all due respect, I cannot understand how it is possible to demand that a Member of Knesset vote against his own position and principles, and at the same time, to enable senior members of Government, including the Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Justice, to vote against the law, and perhaps even to bring down the Government. E. Do you really believe that my responsibility for the fate of the Government should be greater than the responsibility of senior Ministers who are members of that Government? F. With all due respect, I am not prepared to accept the position which holds that senior members of Government can be at peace with their conscience while voting against the Government, whereas I must force my own conscience so as to enable these members to hold the rope of the Government at both ends. Very truly yours, [Signed] Ehud Olmert." In addition, someone has written, in Hebrew, "Olmert" at the top of the first page in pencil, and "filing" in pen on the same page.Ehud Olmert is the 12th prime minister of Israel, having assumed the position following Ariel Sharon’s stroke in January, 2006. In his distinguished career as an Israeli politician, Olmert has been a Knesset member (beginning in 1973), Deputy Prime Minister, Finance Minister, Minister of Industry, Trade and Labor, and Mayor of Jerusalem. This letter concerns pressure Olmert was under to vote against his conscience in order to support his political party in the Knesset. The issue in question was the legalization of abortion, which Olmert supported, but which the conservative, religious political party Agudat Yisrael was against. As Agudat Yisrael and Olmert’s party (Likud) had formed a governi [Attributes: Signed Copy]
