January 5 – 31, 1969

Seth Siegelaub


January 5-31, 1969 was organized by Seth Siegelaub. This publication, rather than accompanying an exhibition, functioned as the exhibition’s primary manifestation, being the only physical object on display during the show’s run. In addition to presenting images of their work, each artist (apart from Robert Barry) also supplied a brief statement on the nature of their practice.

The participating artists were Robert Barry, Douglas Huebler, Joseph Kosuth, and Lawrence Weiner.

Seth Siegelaub (b. 1941 – 2013) was an American curator, art dealer, and author. Through his gallery, Seth Siegelaub Contemporary Art, and his later curatorial practice, Siegelaub introduced the art world to both a wide array of innovative conceptual artists as well as to radically new ways of exhibiting and distributing art. In 1971, Siegelaub (along with Robert Projansky) authored “The Artist’s Reserved Rights Transfer and Sale Agreement,” which was translated into German, French, and Italian. Following his early work in the arts, Siegelaub went on to work as a political researcher and a collector and bibliographer of textiles.
