ART BY TELEPHONE. 1969. ORIGINAL VINTAGE COVER.

£600.00

Chicago: Museum of Contemporary Art, 1969
Standard 12inch LP record in original (NOT a later repoduction) gatefold sleeve which was released on the occasion of the title exhibition which was abandoned because of “technical difficulties”. The record contains the phone calls of participating artists Siah Armajani, Richard Artschwager, John Baldessari, Iain Baxter, Mel Bochner, George Brecht, Jack Burnham, James Lee Byars, Robert Cumming, Francoise Dallegret, Jan Dibbets, John Giorno, Robert Grosvenor, Hans Haacke, Richard Hamilton, Dick Higgins, Davi Det Hompson, Robert Huot, Alain Jacquet, Edward Kienholz, Joseph Kosuth, Les Levine, Sol LeWitt, Robert Morris, Bruce Nauman, Claes Oldenburg, Dennis Oppenheim, Richard Serra, Robert Smithson, Guenther Uecker, Stan Van Der Beek, Bernar Venet, Frank Lincoln Viner, Wolf Vostell, William Wegman, and William T. Wiley giving instructions to the MCA staff on how to execute their various pieces for this exhibition.

While it is possible to find some copies of the LP the gatefold sleeve is incredibly rare to find and any copies for sale are either sans sleeve or are a later facsimile reprint of it. This is the original and while there is some wear on all edges and one slit on the spine and some wear at top and bottom it is an incredible find.

The record is in VG+ condition. Clearly rare.
