We recently acquired this original exhibition poster for the New York Collection for Stockholm, presented at the Moderna Museet. The exhibition ran from October 27 to December 2, 1973 and was funded by the Swedish Ministry of Education. This promotional poster was designed by renowned artist Robert Rauschenberg (American, October 22, 1925 – May 12, 2008) and would have been made in a limited number prior to and during this exhibition.
Artists involved in the show included: Lee Bontecou, Robert Breer, John Chamberlain, Walter de Maria, Jim Dine, Mark de Suvero, Öyvind Fahlström, Dan Flavin, Red Grooms, Hans Haacke, Alex Hay, Don Judd, Ellsworth Kelly, Sol LeWitt, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Morris, Louise Nevelson, Claes Oldenburg, Nam June Paik, Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers, James Rosenquist, George Segal, Richard Serra, Keith Sonnier, Richard Stankiewicz, Frank Stella, Cy Twombly, Andy Warhol, Kenneth Noland and Robert Whitman.
At the time these individuals were considered (deservedly so) to be some of the most important artists of the New York art scene. In retrospect, this list now reads like the who’s who of American 20th century contemporary art!
