NYC: Emily Harvey Gallery, 1988

21 x 15cm, 6pp announcement in the form of an artist’s small publication. The show consisted of Citizen Kafka (was the stage name of New York-based radio personality and folk musician Richard Shulberg) who on his 40th birthday had gathered almost “75% of (his) possessions” and taken them to Harvey’s gallery where he was to sell them off at prices depending on his perception of what the items were worth to him. The newsletter format of the announcement has an image of R. Crumb eating a record on the front, and mention of various concerts in co-ordination with the event – including a “Wretched Refuse Thanksgiving” with Tuli Kupferberg (of the Fuggs) and friends. An amusing format of publicity for one of the first events at Harvey’s gallery.
