Description

“Learn to Read Art” was an exhibition of 287 published works by artists from the postwar period to the present. Artists included many Fluxus and conceptual artists such as Rodney Graham, Hamish Fulton, Robert Fones, Duchamp and Genevieve Cadieux. This exhibition pamphlet marks Art Metropole and Printed Matter’s show at the Basel Art Fair in 1991. The Playmate bunny/skull image on each page was created by Richard Prince. Cover artwork by Richard Prince and Lawrence Weiner.

“An Exhibition of Artists’ Books and Multiples from the Permanent Collection of Art Metropole. LEARN TO READ ART is an exhibition of 287 published works by artists from the postwar period to the present. Although the contemporary artist’s book emerged early in the twentieth century, it was not until the sixties that it came into its own as a medium ideally suited to the needs of Fluxus and Conceptual artists of the period thus our exhibition picks up this thread of history in the postwar years and follows it into that period of intense evolution which was the sixties and early seventies.” – AA Bronson, from introduction.
