Product Description

Robert Longo

This very rare vintage silkscreen poster is pencil signed and numbered from the edition of 300. It From the personal collection of artist Bill Radawec (1952-2011). This silkscreen poster was created as a fundraiser to promote the 10th Anniversary of The Kitchen (An Alternative Arts Space) in New York City. Many years later, Robert Longo was honored by The Kitchen for his contribution to the arts. Another edition of this work is in the permanent collection of the Getty Archives - part of The Kitchen archives. More on the Kitchen:
Founded in 1971 as an artist collective by pioneering video artists Steina and Woody Vasulka, The Kitchen was initially located in the unused kitchen of the former Mercer Arts Center in Greenwich Village, serving as a response to the dearth of venues for new media. The Kitchen became a staging ground for experimental cross-disciplinary endeavors that were outside of what most other arts venues could provide. Near-daily programming included groundbreaking musical performances by Tony Conrad, Brian Eno, Jon Gibson, and the New York Dolls; poetry readings; seminars on art and technology; weekly open video screenings; video art festivals featuring the work of Charlotte Moorman, Nam June Paik, and Stan Vanderbeek; and landmark exhibitions of visual artists such as the first solo show of Robert Mapplethorpe and the first presentation of Cindy Sherman's Untitled Film Stills. A highlight of the collection is a series of rare, stylistically diverse posters designed by significant artists such as Barbara Kruger, Sol LeWitt, Robert Longo, and Kiki Smith that were originally pasted up around town as The Kitchen's primary means of event advertising.
Unframed and in very good vintage condition.
