YPUDU. ANAGRAMMISTE. 1981.

£150.00

NYC: A & M Artworks/Grommet Gallery, 1981

30 x 42cm, 4pp (printed on one side only). A de facto print multiple which is also an announcement for two exhibitions – the first being a solo show by Dupuy (who initially took the space from over George Maciunas after the latter was beaten by mob contractors and then turned it into an art studio alongside Olga Adorno). Later Dupuy leased part of the Soho Loft space at 537 Broadway to Emily Harvey who set up the Grommet Gallery, which in turn, eventually became the Emily Harvey Gallery.

The second event publicised here is a “T.B.K.T.T.C.Performance” with Charles Morrow, C. Santos, Jean Dupuy, J. Halberet, A. Schwerner, G. Velez, C. Tuynman, Emily Harvey, Olga Adorno and Christian Xatrec.

The two works reproduced here here are printed in  red and black and apparently (along with other material by Dupuy) were seemingly some of the first of Fluxus affiliated works exposed to Harvey. Later her gallery would be come synonymous with artists who were heavily influenced by Fluxus.

Dupuy was fascinated by anagrams and much of his early work would show columns of such sentences which would be re-arranged to create new combinations of words. His drawings would usually show how the letters should be rearranged to create the new formulations.

Scarce early publication to be associated with Harvey. Later she would coordinate several other exhibitions by the artist in her gallery. VG+.
