Bob Nickas (Ed.)
69/96 documents an exhibition of two parallel shows curated by Fredi Fischli and Niels Olsen of Studiolo and critic Bob Nickas in Switzerland (2014). 69 featured art works from 1969 selected by Nickas, while 96 featured works from 1996 chosen by Fischli and Olsen. The sense of the temporal overlay in the exhibition is captured in the publication in a third layer of images and information including a xerox catalog edited by Nickas in 1991 and documentation of the curators’ collaborative process. While engaging an intergenerational dialogue both personal and art historical, the three curators remind us that art history also reflects the texture of everyday life. Artists include Richard Artschwager, Larry Clark, Franz Gertsch, On Kawara, Bruce Nauman, Albert Oehlen, Meret Oppenheim, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Allen Ruppersberg, Ed Ruscha, Andy Warhol, Karlheinz Weinberger, Lawrence Weiner, La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela.
