The Paul J. Sachs Prints and Illustrated Books Galleries, second floor

In conjunction with the exhibition In & Out of Amsterdam: Travels in Conceptual Art, 1960–1976

From its inception, Art & Project, an Amsterdam gallery active between 1968 and 1989, supported an international group of artists associated with Conceptual art, both through the organization of exhibitions and the mailing of an information bulletin. The Art & Project Bulletin enabled the gallery to further develop artistic networks at home and abroad by allowing artists to create “exhibitions by mail” in a format not fixed to a place or time. This exhibition presents a selection from the Art & Project/Depot VBVR Gift, the collection that the founders of Art & Project recently gifted to the Museum. The bulletins—156 in total—form the basis of this show, interspersed with works in different mediums by artists such as Robert Barry, Alighiero e Boetti, Daniel Buren, William Leavitt, Sol LeWitt, and Lawrence Weiner.

Organized by Christophe Cherix, Curator, Prints and Illustrated Books.
