This Is Not Here

Syracuse, NY: Everson Museum of Art, 1971. Original tabloid sized advertisement for a retrospective exhibition of Ono's work held at the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, New York from October 9 - 27, 1971. The exhibition contained new and old work by Ono, as well as contributions by Lennon as a "guest artist" and other friends of the couple.

The catalog features collages of newspaper clippings about Ono, compiled by Lennon and assistant Peter Bendry, as well as small comics and line drawings by Ono. The rear wrapper, which doubles as the exhibition poster, features a sequence where the couple's faces were morphed from one to the other, images that would later be used on the labels for "Happy Xmas (War is Over)" and "Some Time in New York City."

Twelve pages, 16.5 x 21.75 inches, folded. Fine condition. Blindstamp to the lower right corner of all but the last page reading "Lennon - Ono / Original Gallery Ad / Certified 1970 to 1974," along with the letters "HI" in holograph ink.
