Poster for Floor Show

New York: Castellane Gallery, 1965. 21 1/8 x 16 1/2 poster, offset printed. Folded three times for mailing, addressed in Kusama's hand to the recipient and postmarked on Halloween of 1965, with Kusama's address rubberstamped.

The original poster mailer for the exhibition, illustrated with a full bleed photograph of a detail from Infinity Mirror Room - Phalli's Field. The Castellane installation, which featured a multitude of phallic stuffed fabric tubers she had sewn from 1964, here extended with the use of mirrors, which not allowed the artist to expand the field of the massive amount of labor that had gone into sewing the constructions, but also include the viewer into the tableaux. A landmark work and the first of her mirror tableax, six of which were reprised for her Hirshhorn exhibition.

Area of significant toning to one panel of verso, old stapled enclosure holes from mailing, but a very good example of a very rare poster. Item #25539

Price: $1,500.00
