Jenny Holzer and Coleen FitzGibbon, Manifesto Show, Poster, 5 Bleecker St, 1979


Size: 9 x 9 inches

Artists Jenny Holzer and Coleen FitzGibbon (both members of the group COLAB) organized the “Manifesto Show” in FitzGibbon’s storefront studio, with contributions from nearly 100 artists and amateurs. As Holzer later remembered, “There were manifestos in the window; printed tirades on the right-hand side of the room; visual manifestos—things that looked more like art—on the left; a platform for shouting in the middle; and we blasted speeches from a loud-speaker outside.”
