COLLAGE IN AMERICA: December 18th thru [sic] January 4th, 1958 [Exhibition Poster]
Zabriskie Gallery [1957], New York - 14" x 9.75" approx. posted printed recto only green on white. Folded twice, in quarters - likely as issued. A couple of clean tears at folds. Very good. Poster for the ground-breaking exhibition COLLAGE IN AMERICA, which included early work from Ray Johnson, Robert Rauschenberg, Allen Kaprow, and Jasper Johns -- only his third exhibition overall and predating his 1958 Castelli solo debut. COLLAGE featured what (according to Virginia Zabriski) ".may have been the first time Johns ever showed one of his flag pieces. I remember the price was $300 and nobody bought it, including me" (ZABRISKIE: Fifty Years p. 15). A prescient exhibition Zabriskie herself frequently mentioned as her favorite and one that helped distill many of the most important artistic developments of the coming 1960s: from Happenings and performance art (Kaprow & Beck) to mail art (Johnson) and pop (Johns & Rauschenberg). Other artists included in the show include: Arthur Dove, Alfred Leslie, Franz Kline, Vincent Longo, Lee Krasner, and Robert Motherwell, among many others. A striking promotional poster for a influential event. [See reproduction in ZABRISKIE: Fifty Years p. 87]. [Attributes: First Edition]
