For many years this was the last time a dutch group of artists presented diutch art at the Sao Paulo Bienal exhibition. For several reasons the Bienal was boycotted and only in the late Eighties dutch art was presented once again at the Sao Paulo Bienal.
But the reason for this blog is not the presence of dutch art in SAo Paulo….no….. the reason is that this 1965 catalogue for the dutch pavillion was designed by Jurriaan Schrofer, who made this catalogue a very special one. The idea came from a leporello in which each fold contains a small catalogue. The artists present are for the official contribution: Co Westerik adnPeter Vos and for the special room: Melle, Carel Willink, Charles Roelofsz and Pyke Koch.
Schrofer managed to include all these artist in a very special way in this catalogue in which all the artists received their own small book. Cover design is special too in which the title spirals away….I really am a great fan of this catalogie which is now available at www.ftn-books.com.
