About This Item

Ephemera from the exhibition Russian Samizdat Art held in Los Angeles in 1984. It was curated by Russian conceptualist artists Rimma and Valery Gelovin. The Gerlovins emigrated to the US in 1979.
The show started in New York in 1982 and presented in many cities in the USA and Canada. For each place Gerlovins created new environment with the works. At the entrance to this exhibition were two border guards made from syringes. They are symbolized the atmosphere in which the artists worked in the Soviet Union. Exhibition included about 100 handmade books and artworks by Russian artists since the 1960s.
OCLC locates only one copy of this ephemera, in MOMA.
