3 Days. Steven LEIBER, bookseller.

3 Days.

Numerous illus. Large folding poster (914 x 610 mm.), folded into eight panels (minor wear to the central fold). [San Francisco]: November 2010.

Leiber’s scarce penultimate catalogue (no. 51), a poster issued on the occasion of the 2010 New York Art Book Fair at MoMA PS1; WorldCat records no copies in the United States. “This poster mimics the event flyer for 9 Evenings: Theatre & Engineering, a series that took place October 13-23, 1966, at the 69th Regiment Armory in New York. The series was the inaugural program of the Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) organization and involved a collaboration between invited artists and engineers from Bell Laboratories. Also refers to artist Dave Muller’s exhibition/event series Three Day Weekend.”–Steven Leiber Catalogs.

The front side of this poster is covered with a grid composed of images of the artists whose works are described on the reverse. At this fair, Leiber offered books, artworks, and ephemera by or related to Beuys, Boltanski, Carrión, Christo, Darboven, Feldmann, Haacke, LeWitt, Lichtenstein, R. Prince, Rauschenberg, Warhol, etc. A total of 105 items are listed.
