Postcard documenting Buren's infamous 50 Bus Benches site specific work in Los Angeles, the spaces on the back of the benches where advertisements are usually offered were rented for the occasion. The location of each work was announced by an anonymous postcard which was mailed out, which was also reproduced in newspapers. This card, sent to fellow artist Athena Tacha, features Daniel Buren's name rubberstamp at recto. Rare, especially as an association copy.

Very good with some creasing and light smudging from postmarks. Item #28106
