🐪 ASSEMBLING volume one (1970) with the notable inclusion of #EdRuscha 's Chocolate, a two-page piece consisting of a cover page followed by a unique smear of chocolate by the artist. ASSEMBLING was an unedited compilation of works submitted largely by anti-establishment artists and writers. Contributers were invited to submit 1000 copies of up to four pages of anything they wanted to include, printed at their own expense, with submissions collated alphabetically. Other artists who participated in the first issue included #VitoAcconci#HannahWeiner#BernadetteMayer and #DanGraham .

We arrived in a stretch, but even though he had designed the entire place-the gorillas at the door didn't recognise him, so it took a while to get in. There were plenty of room-size installations by Jean- Michel Basquiat, Francesco Clemente, Keith Haring, Vito Acconci and Kenny Scharf ( I think now mostly destroyed when NYU acquired the property). Apparently, its all part of history ....This upcoming exhibition is interesting, but how could they not include Eric Goode or Steve Mass ( design by proxy )? " The value of nightlife in solidifying boundary-pushing art movements has long been established, but the focus has usually been placed on the music and styles that defined socials scenes. This exhibition will emphasize the role of design—furniture, lighting, graphics—in defining the spatial context as a Gesamtkunstwerk. Examples range from 1960s Italian clubs created by members of Radical Design to Studio 54, the Palladium in New York designed by Arata Isozaki, and more recent concepts by the OMA architecture studio for the Ministry of Sound in London.

Project vet (veteran, not veterinarian), Al Roland's tribute to the late, great Vito Acconci.
Al- "One word: "Seedbed." As an adult, I've become increasingly fascinated with performative work that confronts the viewer and forces him or her to reconsider artistic potential/production. It all started with Vito Acconci's "Seedbed," which I came across in an art history textbook as a teenager, performed at Sonnabend Gallery in January of 1972. Thank you, Vito, for your brilliant mind!"
Thank you @al.roland for your brilliant drawing ⚡️🙌🏼⚡️#vitoacconci#facesofdeath2017
