Exposition personnelle dans revue

Use of a bulletin as an exhibition space and as a means to publicize the rejection by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum of "Peinture/Sculpture" [Painting/Sculpture] which was supposed to be displayed in the group exhibition "Guggenheim International Exhibition 1971", in February, 1971 and was pulled from the show at the request of several artists.

Juxtaposition of twelve photographs serving to document and illustrate the suspended painting as installed several hours before the exhibition opening before being taken down. Photo documentary of the installation as well as proof of the work in question, as the public had subsequently been deprived of viewing the piece. Use of this bulletin for the non-use, inversely, of the Bulletin 24, in June 1970, which, blank, was an informational bulletin on a work made invisible.
