OLGA ADORNO. 1982. VERY EARLY EMILY HARVEY PUBLICATION & HARVEY’S FIRST EXHIBITION IN GROMMET GALLERY.

£125.00

NYC: Grommet Gallery, 1982

30 x 21cm, 16pp exhibition catalogue for a drawing and performance show by Adorno. Designed by the artist and reproduced in her own facsimile hand with many illustrations and b/w photographs of performances and works. This was one of the very first manifestations of Emily Harvey’s career as a gallerist – prior to this she had been working as a corporate art consultant- the Grommet Gallery later became the Emily Harvey Gallery and was based, like the latter, in 537 Broadway. It is claimed the early shows at Grommet were curated by Jean Dupuy and Christian Xatrec and it was not until the Emily Harvey Gallery was set up officially that she curated her own space.

Staples are rusted here but else VG+. Scarce publication.
