First Official Invitation for a Discussion

Exhibition postcard: Ian Wilson: Oral Communication (13-16 November 1970).

Printed on both sides. postcard, mailed. Düsseldorf: Konrad Fischer, 1970.

Postcard invitation to Wilson’s first Discussions organized by a gallery.

“The first gallery to organise discussions with Ian Wilson was Konrad Fischer in Düsseldorf. The artist recalls that Fischer’s plan was to take Ian Wilson to various exhibition openings, not expecting anyone to come to the gallery in Düsseldorf. The announcement card indicates the different locations Fischer would be visiting with Wilson and is the first official invitation to have been made for an Ian Wilson discussion. In keeping with the way that Wilson presented his work in New York City in 1968, Fischer did not specify a meeting place in Cologne and Krefeld, but continued the informal nature of Wilson’s work in random settings in the German art world.”–Ian Wilson: The Discussions (2008) p. 38.

A fine copy, mailed to artist Gerhard von Graevenitz (1934-83).
