ART-LANGUAGE Vol. 1 Nr 1
Chipping Norton: Art & Language, February 1970
21.5 x 13.5cm, 32pp. Original card covers. First edition of this inaugural number of the important conceptual art journal with articles by Sol LeWitt, Dan Graham, Lawrence Weiner, David Bainbridge and Michael Baldwin. LeWitt’s Sentences on conceptual art. Graham’s Poem-Schema and Weiner’s Statements had all been previously published elsewhere but being in a single journal allowed their views to be compared – LeWitt’s 10th sentence is “Ideas alone can be works of art: they are in a chian of development that may eventually find other form. All ideas may not be made physical.” – compare that with Weiner’s more famous and more readily quoted dictum regarding the requirement that “1. an artist may construct a work 2. a work may be fabricated 3. a work need not be built. A reasonable assumption is that each being equal and consistant with the intent of an artist the decision as to condition rests within the needs of the receiver upon the occasion of receivership.” A VG + to near fine copy.
