Poster, Texte court sur la possibilite de creer une veritable economie de l'equivalence [Liam Gillick], 2005

This is a Poster. It was designed by M/M (Paris), Michael Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak and made for (as the client) Palais de Tokyo. It is dated 2005 and we acquired it in 2015. Its medium is screenprint on paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

In 2005, artist Liam Gillick was disappointed by the poster originally designed and displayed by Le Palais de Tokyo in Paris on the occasion of his exhibition Texte court sur la possibilité de créer une économie de l’équivalence (Short text on the possibility of creating an equivalence economy). Gillick personally commissioned M/M (Paris) to create a new poster for the exhibition, just two weeks before the opening. A series of twenty-five identical “freshly redesigned” posters were displayed for the duration of the exhibition at the entrance of the museum as a sign of protest.

This object was featured in our Object of the Day series in a post titled Exhibition Posters as Art.

It is credited Gift of M/M (Paris).

Its dimensions are

176 × 120 cm (5 ft. 9 5/16 in. × 47 1/4 in.)
