Imagine driving down the Interstate or sitting in rush hour traffic and on the billboard 1,000 feet in front of you an op art image appears. Then images emerge with the words LOOK and FluXus. Next, you see twins on a beach, followed by an image of a shaggy blue dog smiling down on you. Billboard Art replaces boring ads and the expected for just a few moments, sometimes inserted between ads and at other times as a continuous stream of art. This book gives you a taste of the billboard art experience in your armchair, at your leisure, and at your command.
Contains: photography, visual poetry, copy art, Fluxus, Dada, contemporary art, conceptual art
