Information : 50th Anniversary edition
The facsimile edition of the original catalogue for the landmark Information exhibition exploring the early history of conceptual art
In the summer of 1970, MoMA mounted the now legendary exhibition, Information, which is one of the first surveys of conceptual art. Conceived by MoMA's celebrated curator Kynaston McShine as an 'international report' on contemporary trends, the show and attendant catalogue together assembled the work of more than 150 artists from 15 countries to explore the parameters and possibilities of the emerging art practices of the era.
The catalogue includes a list of recommended reading, a chance-based index by critic Lucy Lippard, and individual artist contributions in the form of photographic documentation, textual description, drawings and diagrams.
