David Zack & Canada Art Writers Society: CV Nut Art Show at Ecart

The catalog from David Zack’s first solo exhibition (and one of very few solo exhibitions for Zack), which took place at John Armleder’s important Ecart gallery and performance space in Geneva in May/June of 1974. The catalog is a work of correspondence art (issued over a year later in December of 1975) with photocopied drawings, including mailing addresses plus writings by Zack and others, Ray Johnson among them. Zack was a prolific and central, if underappreciated, figure in mail art, and had connections to, and at various times lived in, Portland, San Francisco, New York, Regina, Canada and Tepoztlán, Mexico. He was the co-creator or instigator behind various projects and movements, including Nut Art, Neoism and the “open pop star” identity Monty Cantsin. He disappeared in 1995 and is rumored to have died in San Antonio, Texas after having spent five years in prison in Mexico for “defrauding the US Government”. Numbered edition, 127 of 450. Item #17.

Condition: Interior contents in Very Good condition; significant wear, rubbing, chips and soiling to the printed envelope, including a large 11" diagonal tear across one corner.
