955,000. Exhibition catalogue for an exhibition organised by Lucy Lippard, The Vancouver Art Gallery, 13 January – 8 February 1970, Vancouver 1970.
With its manila envelope marked only by a hastily written exhibition description, this exhibition catalogue has a very unassuming appearance. Inside the envelope are 138 unbound index cards representing one of the most important avant garde art exhibitions of its time, titled 955,000.
Despite its unbound, randomly ordered and aesthetically uniform (hand and typewritten text printed in black on index cards) characteristics, this catalogue is peculiar because each artist in the exhibition was not only asked to contribute their artwork but they were also encouraged to make/design their own index card(s) for the catalogue.
