John Dunbar : Indica Gallery collection : 1966 Weiss auf weiss (white on white) exhibition Poster

Poster from the collection of John Dunbar, who famously ran & curated  the “Swinging London” Indica Art Gallery  in Mason’s Yard, London   from 1966-1967. I guess I’m obliged to mention the gallery & bookshop was originally 1965/6 set up Dunbar, Barry Miles & Peter Asher -with involvement/ backing  from Paul McCartney, Jane Asher, Marriane Faithfull ….and was where John met Yoko……

While John’s Indica collection now  resides in the Tate Gallery archives, this is amongst his comes from his remaining archives from that period.

The exhibition was held by Swiss curator Harald Szeemann who specialised in Pop, Fluxus and Kinetic artwork during the 1960s- (very much like Indica). Although American pop-art painter is the main artist listed,  David Medalla was amongst the ’11 pop-artists’, who also had (the last?) exhibition at Indica in May ’67 before it closed.

Condition : Previously rolled. Condition can hopefully be determined by zooming into the photo- no significant rips or tears. Large Approx 1.5m x 1m : please email for exact measurements.

As can probably be seen the poster was extremely hard to photograph (even with professional assistance!). It is silk  screened in silver ink and crudely put (dang- the 5 years art history)  is a wonderful -minimal  spaceage spiral, which changes  with the light and as you walk past. I love it and if had more wall  space….

John & I couldn’t determine a price -so please email  if interested ?
