Valencia, CA: California Institute of the Arts, 1973. 30 postcards housed in an unprinted manila clasp envelope.
The catalog for the fourth and last of the "numbers shows", which began in Valencia, California - population c. 7500 - and travelled to other locations. Like the previous installments in the series, the catalog consists entirely of randomly arranged postcards by artists, but for the first time in this catalog all of the artists are women.
The postcards include a title page, and a foreward by Lippard over three postcards, followed by 26 postcards by the artists, which includes Renee Nahum, Renate Altenrath, Nancy Wilson Kitchel, Poppy Johnson, Alice Aycock, Rita Myers, Christiane Möbus, Bernadette Mayer, Patricia Lasch, Suzanne Kuffler, Christine Kozlov, Nancy Holt, Doree Dunlap, Hanne Darboven, Jennifer Bartlett, Judith Stein, N.E. Thing Co., Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Ulrike Nolden, Jacki Apple, Laurie Anderson, Adrian Piper, Athena Tacha, and Eleanor Antin.
Postcards fine. Envelope is well-creased at margins, with Lucy Lippard's name written ink ink, along with the word exhibition, underlined, and the names of two other artists in a different hand - Lil Picard and George Brecht - crossed out. Item #25263
