Please Come to the Show
David Senior, then bibliographer at the Museum of Modern Art Library in New York, selected a wide range of exhibition-related ephemera from the Library’s collection – invitations, flyers and posters from the 1960s to the present – presenting them here as an historically overlooked but integral aspect of exhibitions. Often the first point of contact between the audience and artist(s), such items form part of an essential lexicon for graphic designers, curators, art historians and anyone interested in the event-based nature of showing art. Filled with full-colour reproductions of numerous examples from the MoMA Library collection, the book also includes new essays by Gustavo Grandal Montero, Will Holder, Antony Hudek, Angie Keefer, Clive Phillpot, David Senior and Suzanne Stanton.
