Announcement poster for Paul Thek’s 'Pyramid, A Work in Progress' exhibition at the Moderna Museet, Stockholm 6 November 1971 - 9 January 1972.
[Stockholm]: Moderna Museet, 1971.
Original poster (400 × 580 mm / 15.75 × 22.83 in.) on pale blue stock, with Thek’s drawings printed in offset to recto with an image silk-screened in pink to verso, folded vertically, presumably as issued; light toning to recto fold and edges. An excellent copy.
In 1968 Thek made a series of works for an exhibition at Galerie M.E. Thelen, Essen. During transportation to the gallery from Rome, where he was based at the time, all of the works were seriously damaged. Thek opted to repair them in the gallery during the run of the exhibition, finishing the final piece a week before the exhibition was due to close. This 'Work in Progress' prompted Edy de Wilde and Pontus Hulten, directors of the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and the Moderna Museet, Stockholm to invite him to conceive exhibitions. 'The Procession/The Artist’s Coop' opened at the Stedelijk Museum in 1969. Two years later Thek mounted 'Pyramid, A Work in Progress' at the Moderna Museet.
