"4,492,040 is a facsimile reprint of a series of catalogs Lucy R. Lippard produced during her curatorial career. Drawn from material originally published between 1969 and 1974, this work includes reprints of all four catalogs from Lippard’s “numbers shows,” a series of exhibitions named for the populations of the cities they were held in: 557,087 (Seattle), 955,000 (Vancouver), c.7,500 (Valencia, California), and 2,972,453 (Buenos Aires). As with the originals, 4,492,040 is made up of a collection of loose note cards, in this case oversized, printed double-side and containing statements, documentation, and conceptual works by each artist, to be rearranged at random. This edition supplemented by a new afterword by Lippard."--From the publisher. Edited by Jeff Khonsary. Co-presented with the Vancouver Art Gallery and the Seattle Art Museum. 358 cards in zip lock bag.
