Thursday, September 12–Friday, September 20, Artbook Bookstore Event Space presents AQUI, Word and Image: NYC Streets as Gallery Space 1984–1986 with a related talk during the NY Art Book Fair on Friday, September 20 from 5:30–6:30 PM.

AQUI: Postered in Artbook Bookstore Event Space

All ten issues of AQUI, featuring work by Barbara Kruger, Les Levine, Steve Gianakos, General Idea, Gilbert & George, Davi Det Hompson, Julie Bradrick and Cliff Baldwin, will be on display during regular Bookstore hours beginning Thursday, Sept 12, culminating in a discussion with AQUI publisher Cliff Baldwin on Friday, Sept 20 at 5:30PM during the New York Art Book Fair. Baldwin will discuss the fascinating history of AQUI, a mobile space for exhibitions, created as an alternative to the traditional art gallery.

Email booksmomaps1@artbook.com to request a price list. There will be a very limited number of full sets, and varying numbers of individual issues of AQUI for sale. Every issue comes in an original AQUI envelope.

During the 80s, the colorful, illustrative oversized posters of AQUI Magazine were lining the streets of New York City, sold at bookstores such as MoMA bookstore and Printed Matter, and displayed at art institutions around the world. From 1983-86, Cliff Baldwin, Julie Bradrick and Davi Det Hompson collaborated with silk-screener Norman Lassiter and published ten issues of AQUI in downtown Manhattan. AQUI provided the public with accessible quality art at the price of $10 a poster, an affordable alternative to the traditional art gallery. The tabloid-sized, folded posters unfolded into one of two sizes: 45 x 69” and 35 x 45,” and featured silk-screened original artwork by Barbara Kruger, Les Levine, Steve Gianakos, General Idea, Gilbert & George, Davi Det Hompson, Julie Bradrick and Cliff Baldwin. To this day, the posters are significant because of their experimental typographic explorations and genuine promotion of democratic art making.
