FRAC Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur

A suite of my artist books from the late 1970′s and early 1980′s has found it’s way to this new contemporary art museum in southern France. The FRAC (Fonds Regional d’Art Contemporain) Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur building was designed by Kengo Kuma and opened on March 22, 2013. This city is located 100 km northeast of Marseilles. There is a large section of this museum dedicated to artist books, where my pieces are on permanent, public display. How my works traveled there, I have no idea. These books documented walks that I had performed and photographed in Washington DC and in Minnesota. Given that they document outdoor performances, it is appropriate to also consider them environmental art works.
