Art & Project Bulletin 23. Keith Arnatt 1220400 - 0000000

Arnatt, Keith

Amsterdam. 1970
Between 1968 and 1989 Geert van Beijeren and Adriaan van Ravesteijn published 156 issues of the art & project bulletin. The bulletin was generally a single sheet folded in half and printed on both sides, and it was sent free to a mailing list of aproximately 400 to 500 individuals, including other artists, curators and gallerists (the total printing for each bulletin was about 800 copies, leaving a number of unmailed bulletins available at the gallery for the public during the time of the exhibition). This copy is folded but not mailed.
Since the bulletins often constituted the exhibition they were generally considered works of art in their own right.
Arnatt's conceptual contribution is intruiging: 'an exhibition of the duration of the exhibition by following means: a digital count-down system (time related to amsterdam time) will count down the duration of the exhibition in seconds ... exhibition time may be purchased at , per unit.'
[Ref. Lippard - Six Years: The dematerialization of the art object from 1966 to 1972, p.166].
