I LOVE rubber stamps! Is a "publiventa" a marketplace of some sort? Did Mr. Held mention if he had visited this Kiosco? At the Inter Dada festival in San Francisco, 1984, there were a few people who had booths FILLED with rubber stamps for sale. These indeed were Kiosks worth a visit. Thanks for sharing Rafael!
It is very mysterious to me. I do not really know where that Kiosk is and if John Held Jr. has been there. Maybe Buenos Aires ... is it possible that Phillip Jeffries sent this through a John Held Jr. tulpa? Thanks for your comment, amigo!
C3 is not yet a member of the Blue Rose Task Force, so he might not understand the significance of Buenos Aires, Phillip Jeffries and tulpas.
I visited Vigo &Marx in La Plata, Argentina, in 1991. Graciela Marx and I had some rubber stamps made up and at the shop, the owner gave me some scraps. Just came across them. Glad to see you put them to good use!
Thanks much for the input, Mr. Held! I, in fact, was acquainted with an Argentine Graciela in San Francisco during the mid 1980's. I believe I can hear Schwitters or Duchamp whistling somewhere nearby...
...and one more interesting fact: Graciela was a Marxist. I'm not making this up either.
I'm very glad you like it. Thank you very much for sending me beautiful art always!
It would be great if you wrote a little article about Vigo or your visit to Argentina for EC!
Nice work Rafael!
Bonjour! Merci beaucoup, Frank!
