Some excellent “found” typography by Elaine SturtevantPostcard invitation for The Store, New York, 1967
Sturtevant directly appropriated Claes Oldenburg’s poster design for the announcement card for her re-creation of Oldenburg’s 1961 The Store installation in April 1967. Sturtevant’s Store was installed in a space she rented at 623 East Ninth Street, in the East Village. She had first gained notoriety for her 1965 solo show at Bianchini Gallery, New York, where she had re-created Pop works by Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenburg, and Jim Dine, among others. From the MoMA Library.
