Poster, Scenario, Merce Cunningham, Comme des Garçons, 1997

This is a Poster. It is dated 1997 and we acquired it in 1998. Its medium is offset lithograph on paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

Designer Tsuguya Inoue (Japanese, born 1942) intended these two posters (1997-175-1/2) to be displayed as a set, creating a stereopticon effect. Therefore, we recommend accepting both Merce Cunningham, Scenario, Comme des Garcons and Comme des Garcons, Scenario, Merce Cunningham for the collection.

It is credited Gift of Comme des Garçons.

Its dimensions are

102.6 × 72.5 cm (40 3/8 × 28 9/16 in.)

It is inscribed

Printed in red, center: Merce Cunningham scenario; in red, lower right: BAM Opera House / Brooklyn Academy of Music, Brooklyn NY / 14-19 October 1997 / Palais Garnier / Opéra National de Paris / 6-17 January 1998 / Cal Performances / Zellerbach Hall, University of California at Berkeley / 3-4 April 1998 / Barbican Theatre / Barbican Centre, London / 6-10 October 1998 / COMME des GARÇONS
