Boo-Hooray. Item #3962
Collecting half a century’s worth of materials that document the work of one of the most influential theatre troupes in American history, this assemblage publication is unique as the contents are original materials preserved by members of The Living Theatre. These posters, handbills, programs, and photographs were designed and produced by members of the theatre parallel to art movements of the time spanning the early 1950's through the 1990's.
The Living Theatre Archive In A Box is a numbered edition of 200 that contains dozens of posters, handbills, pamphlets, programs, and photographs contained within a stenciled box. Included is a photo zine of rare images, and second zine in silkscreened fold-out boards with a historical overview by long-time Living Theatre member Thomas Walker, a download card for Jonas Mekas Living Theatre film The Brig and the Living Theatre documentary Signal Through The Flames, a signed print by Jonas Mekas, a print from the summer 2015 Gavin Brown enterprise exhibition, A Living Collage, and a letter press print paying homage to The Living Theatre by Larry Clark.
