Brescia: Galleria Massimo Minini, 2016
30 x 21cm, 1pp announcement leaflet reproducing a drawing by Monk that references Sol Lewitt, Boetti and Weiner all at once. The over all design looks like several Boetti announcement leaflets but the drawing is a Lewitt cube and the idea of a wall drawing being covered and uncovered reminds one of early Lawrence Weiner conceptual art sculptures/structures. This example fo the leaflet is signed by Monk at the bottom in pencil. Folded for mailing else VG+.
