Collage, original b/w mounted photos, original drawings and handwritten texts on white paper sheets, forming a long narrow horizontal strip, 22x300 cm (8 1/4x118 inches). Signed and dated August 1973.
Provenance: Private collection. This piece was given in 1973 by Acconci as his participation in a fund raising auction sale for the French daily newspaper Liberation. Bought at this occasion, it has remained the buyer's property till today.
Reproduction: detail (approx. 1/5th of the original piece length), reduced.
Information given by Vito Acconci, through his assistant, regarding this piece:
1. The piece is a collage of different unrelated sketches and photos.
2. It was not a story board for any film Vito did.
3. Throughout the years Vito has donated his work to numerous people and organisations for fundraising. Some pieces were documentations of previous pieces, with photos and text relating to a certain piece. Others, like this piece, were more like something that would come from a sketch book; random works that did not relate to a specific piece of Vito's.
4. Basically, the work is an original work of art by Vito Acconci, but it is nothing that has a history; nothing you will read about in any books on Vito. We do not have any record of the piece.

City of words, 2010
29.7 x 42 cm
Edition of 50, dated 2010, numbered and signed on the back.
City of Words merges Acconci's interest in language and conceptual poetry reflected in his earliest works of the 1960s and '70s with his more recent investigations of archi¬tecture and urban planning under Acconci Studio. The «city» depicted is a rendering of a labyrinthine environment constructed from the text of Acconci's own writings, giving language a concrete form.
