KLÜVER, Billy

Giant Size $1.57 [Cover] / On Record: 11 Artists 1963 [Title Page]

NY: Experiments in Art and Technology, 1981. 45pp. Printed wraps in plastic comb binding, 5-1/2 x 4-1/2 in. Light abrasion to rear cover; mild edgewear; scattered foxing to first page. Very good.

A collection of transcribed interviews conducted by electrical engineer Billy Klüver with eleven artists - Jim Dine, George Brecht, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, John Wesley, Robert Watts, Tom Wesselmann, Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg, Jim Rosenquist, and Robert Rauschenberg - and originally issued as an LP in 1963 with cover art (here reproduced) by Andy Warhol. The record was issued to coincide with the Popular Image Exhibition at the Washington Gallery of Modern Art, April 18-June 2, 1963, in which all eleven artists featured. This book version was published by Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.), a non-profit facilitating collaborations between artists and engineers, which Klüver co-founded in 1966 with fellow engineer Fred Waldhauer and artists Robert Rauschenberg and Robert Whitman. A cassette tape of the interviews, referenced by Klüver in his introduction, was produced simultaneously with the book, although according to one anecdotal source in much smaller numbers. A scarce title both in the trade and institutionally; OCLC reports just three library holdings.
