Inside the Milberg Gallery: Ulises Carrión - 1975-1988 flyers

Ulises Carrión video-maker from the Netherlands presents two recent works "TV-Tonight-Video" and "Aristotle's Milkshake"
The following is the seventh in a series of inside looks at the current exhibition in Princeton University Library’s Ellen and Leonard Milberg Gallery in Firestone Library - “Ulises Carrión: Bookworks and Beyond.”

Curated by Sal Hamerman, Metadata Librarian for Special Collections at PUL, and Javier Rivero Ramos, a recent Ph.D graduate from the Department of Art & Archaeology, who is now Assistant Curator at Art Bridges Foundation in Arkansas, the exhibition explores Carrión’s pioneering reinvention of the book as a material and social platform, primarily featuring Princeton’s extensive holdings, drawn from the Marquand Library of Art and Archaeology and PUL’s Special Collections. PUL is steward to one of the most substantial collections of Carrión’s book and mail art in any American library. 

These flyers document over 50 exhibitions, readings, and performances that took place at Other Books and So, featuring influential artists such as Allan Kaprow, Dick Higgins, and Dorothy Iannone, Latin American experimentalists such as Mirtha Dermisache and Horacio Zabala, mail art group exhibitions, and works by lesser-known local artists. A second group of flyers documents Carrión’s own exhibitions, lectures, curatorial initiatives and video screenings throughout his lifetime.


The exhibition is open and free to the public during Milberg Gallery hours of operation, February 21 through June 13, 2024.
