Poster announcing Bruce Conner's June 4, 1962 exhibition at the Ferus Gallery. Bruce CONNER.

Poster announcing Bruce Conner's June 4, 1962 exhibition at the Ferus Gallery.

LA: Ferus Gallery, 1962.

Item #SKB-16480

The poster is illustrated with a photo of Conner's important early "funk" assemblage "Portrait of Allen Ginsberg" a work that, like many from this period, utilized objects (in this case tin cans) shrouded in tan nylon stockings. This exhibition was an early one for Conner and his first at Ferus. The Ferus, owned by Walter Hopps and Irving Blum, was among the most important avant-garde galleries of the '50s and '60s, and ephemera from this venue is scarce. A few minute pin holes to top corners (only two of which are noticeable), short tear to bottom edge, creased where folded twice as issued, else near fine (13" x10"). A nice bright copy of a scarce early item.

Price: $850.00
