The Art & Project Bulletin, 1968-1989

THE DOCUMENTS OF THE FOUNDATION OF CONCEPTUAL ART:

From its inception, Art & Project, the Amsterdam gallery active between 1968 and 1989, supported an international group of artists associated with Conceptual Art, both through the organization of exhibitions and the mailing of an information bulletin. The Art & Project Bulletin enabled the gallery to further develop artistic networks at home and abroad by allowing artists to create 'exhibitions by mail' in a format not fixed to a place or time. Each bulletin was composed of four 29,5x21 cm pages with a consistent cover design. The inside of the bulletin, however, was open to each artists' interpretation. They became projects produced specifically for the medium according to the whims of their creator. The bulletins were not simply exhibition announcements or recompilations of previous works; instead they emerged as stand alone pieces of original art issued in a continuous numbered series for twenty one years. The publication was best described by the paragraph that accompanied the first issuance of Bulletin 1: Art & Project plans to bring you together with the ideas of artists, architects and technicians to discover an intelligent form for your living and working space. Art & Project invites you to participate in its exhibitions which will explore ways in which art, architecture and technology can combine with your own ideas.
