About

Original exhibition poster for Ruckus Manhattan by Red Grooms and the Ruckus Construction Company, 1975. Presented by Creative Time, Inc. Lithograph with offset lithographic photo elements, sheet measures 23 x 29 inches; 24 x 30 inches framed. Design by M. Samuels. Produced by Polychrome Lithography Co., Inc, NYC. Condition is outstanding with no damage or conservation. No creasing, staining, toning or fading. A rare poster from an early show produced by Creative Time Inc. while only in their 2nd season. A lovely document of NYC art history. Ruckus Manhattan was a multimedia, three-dimensional representation of Manhattan on display on the ground level of 88 Pine Street. The out-of-scale model, constructed of papier-mâché, wood, plastic, fiberglass, and vinyl, was designed to conform to Manhattan’s psychic dimensions, rather than its physical ones, and included such landmarks as the Apollo Theatre, the Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park, the Chrysler Building, the Stock Exchange floor, Trinity Church, and the World Trade Center. Finding inspiration in sources as diverse as cubism and newspaper comics, Red and Mimi Gross Grooms’s city-within-a-city provoked serious thought about everyday life in Manhattan.
