Description

This abstract image was originally created in 1962 as a black and white poster for a performance by the Aileen Passloff Dance Company on January 20, 1962. It is listed as Number 21 in "Printed Stuff: Prints, Posters and Ephemera by Claes Oldenburg : A Catalogue Raisonné‚ 1958-1996" by Claes Oldenburg, Richard H. Axsom, David Platzker. New York / Madison, NY / WI : Hudson Hills Press / Madison Art Center, 1997, pp. 80.

Oldenberg later published a limited edition of 150 for publication in the portfolio "Conspiracy: The Artist as Witness", a portfolio created by thirteen printmakers to help fellow artist Pearl Hirshfield raise funds for the Chicago Seven, who were on trial for their anti-war actions at the 1968 Democratic National Convention. This impression is a proof, outside of the published edition, printed by Styria Studio in New York. Included in the portfolio were Alexander Calder, Larry Poons, Jack Beal, Romare Bearden, Leon Golub, Nanacy Spero, Robert Morris, Peter Saul, Raphael Sawyer, Frank Stella, Bridget Riley, and Sol Lewitt.
