Daniel Spoerri ( 1971 poster)

Just leaving the path of Crouwel /Sandberg designed posters for this Daniel Spoerri designed extraordinary poster for his 1971 exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum. In the early Seventies the Stedelijk Museum commissioned some of the exhibiting artist to design their own publicity posters . Tinguely was one of them and so was Daniel Spoerri, who made one of the very best Seventies posters ever. Just for your self…..

The DYLABY correspondence

Yesterday, i dedicated my blog to the Tinguely exhibition in the Stedelijk Museum and promised to blog on the correspondence for the DYLABY ( Dynamisch Labyrinth) exhibition. Possibly the most important exhibition in the Stedelijk Museum in the 60’s.

I blogged on the DYLABY catalogue some months ago…available at www.ftn-books.com,

but this extremely large and complex exhibition required thorough preparation. In the current Tinguely exhibition there is a showcase in which the letters from the invited artists are presented and because i have a great admiration for Tinguely and Sandberg , i had to photograph the correspondence for my own archives. Because the light above and the glass in between make it hard to make a good quality photograph, there is a shadow cast on the paper, but still text and names can be read and i think it is nice for all interested to read about the invitations and preparations for the DYLABY exhibition. Let me know what you think about them!
