A HANDBOOK FOR RICHARD LONG
This year 21 September Richard Long will be a professional artist for forty years.
On 21 September 1968 he had his very first exhibition at Konrad Fischer in Düsseldorf, Germany.
To celebrate this historical day I would like to present Richard Long a book as done with his 60th birthday in 2005.
The book will be a 'handbook': a book full of hands, congretulating the artist.
You can send in a sheet of A4 paper (h 21 cm x w 29,7 cm) with your hand(s) on it.
You can colour it, make a collage of it, make a writing in the shape of your hand, everything is possible, but it has to be flat so the page can fit in the book.
On the left you need to have a side-line of 2 cm (see example).
Please write the title of the handwork, your name and hometown on the back of your contribution.
All hands will be published end of September in 'The Richard Long Newsletter'.
You can send in 'your hand(s)' until 31 May.
Please send in your contribution to:
6542 JK Nijmegen, the Netherlands.
Good luck and much pleasure making your contribution to the handbook.
