~BRIAN BELOTT/MoMA/BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS !!
we recently found out that MoMA – the MUSEUM of MODERN ART – has purchased for its collection – the 2005 BRIAN BELOTT installation, ‘BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS and BOOKS’.
The installation, a collection of approx. 60 handpainted & collaged books of varying sizes, (some done in collaboration with artist/friends), arrayed on a large wooden table, was presented at CANADA, as part of a 3 PERSON SHOW – which opened on MARCH 11, 2005.
Here are few archival shots of the original exhibition . . . .
