GLOBALFAXFESTIVALAN INVITATION FOR A PRIVATE VIEWING A GATHERING OF THE TRIBES 285 EAST 3RD STREET, 2ND FLOOR 212.674.8262
I invite you to come and take part in the viewing of the GlobalFAXFestival video here at A Gathering of the Tribes. Located at 285 East 3 rd Street, 2nd Floor. Please call 212.674.8262 to make an appointment. The GlobalFAXFestival was an event conceptualized and created by David Hammons, an American artist. It was held at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia at the Crystal Palace in Madrid, Spain from June 1st through November 6th, in 2000. During the festival, faxes were sent from all over the world, including from Tribes Gallery, to a fax machine hanging suspended from the ceiling at the Crystal Palace. At the festival, the papers being faxed were falling to the floor like a ticker-tape parade. A full color brochure describes the location of the festival, as well as the concept behind it, engineered by David Hammons. This complete binder is very rare, as only 20 were produced. A CD is included with the binder packet, which contains music by Butch Morris. Conduction #113, Interflight. This is a Limited Edition Global Fax Festival Binder created by David Hammons. This Limited Edition Binder is limited to an edition of 20. The binder and packet contains a press packet, a poster and brochure describing the concept of the Global Fax Festival, and a selection of examples of the faxes sent during the festival, selected by David Hammons.
Thank you, A Gathering of the Tribes
