Np: The Artist, [1976-1984]. 2 5/8 x 6 1/8" sheet, offset lithograph. Signed in plate by the artist.
Beginning in 1969, Meireles began his Árvore do dinheiro series, which appropriated currencies in order to question their relationship between national identity, exchange value, inflation, materiality and representation, all called into sharp relief by reducing the value of these printed objects to zero. One of the most potent art projects of its time, and one which has increasing and not yet fully understood reproductions in our time as we hurtle towards a zero marginal cost society.
