Intermedia, Fluxus, and the Something Else Press: Selected Writings by Dick Higgins

In a remembrance in PAJ: A Journal of Performance and Art, Richard Kostelanetz described his fellow artist Dick Higgins as a prolific, unlimited source of creative production: “One principle clear to him from the beginning was that there should be no limits upon a creative person’s activities […] Richard C. Higgins was really at least three people in one big body.”

Christopher Howard's The Jean Freeman Gallery Does Not Exist

Between Summer 1970 and Spring 1971, advertisements appeared in Artforum, Art in America, Arts Magazine, ARTnews, and Avalanche touting exhibitions at the Jean Freeman Gallery in New York.

SLANT, published by MACK, alternates between police blotter excerpts from the Amherst Bulletin and black-and-white photographs taken by Schuman within a thirty-mile radius of the town.

Brick Press’s N.E. Thing Co.: Companies Act

A “reinterpreted facsimile” of a 1978 book project by the N.E. Thing Co., a corporation that served as the umbrella for the activities of the Vancouver-based artists Iain and Ingrid Baxter, is a fascinating hybrid that succeeds as an informational compendium, a reinterpreted facsimile, and an artistic project in its own right.
