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 ?
