Artist’s Photographs, Vision 5, 1981
Featuring Photographs by Ed Ruscha, John Cage, and Sol Lewitt
This is a surprisingly difficult to find edition of Vision 5, “Artist’s Photographs”, published by the Crown Point Press, California, in 1981. Edited by Tom Marioni of the Museum of Conceptual Art, this is a beautiful boxed edition of the works of 56 photographers that were exhibited at the Crown Point Gallery in Oakland, California. Exhibited were large and small photographs, color and black and white. These have been reproduced to fit the 8” x 10” black and white format of this edition and are presented unbound in a box. Included in the box is an introduction sheet with information about the project. The edition was limited to 1000 copies.
Photographers included in the edition are:
Marina Abramovic, Vito Acconci, John Baldessari, Robert Adrian, Terry Allen, William Anastasi, Gabor Attalai, ri, Robert Barry, Lanin Baxter, Larry Bell, Daine Blell, Christian Boltanski, Chris Burden, John Cage, Ernst Caramelle, Giuseppe Chiari, Christo, Herbert Distel, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Joel Fisher, Terry Fox, Howard Fried, Hamish Fulton, Hans Haacke, John Hilliard, Joan Jonas, Juergen Klauke, Paul Kos, Jannis Dounellis, Richard Kriesche, Barry Le Va, Sol Lewitt, Gerhard Johann Lischka, Richard Long, Robert Mahon, Tom Marioni, Masashi Matsumoto, David Medalla, Antonio Muntadas, Maurizio Nanucci, Mike Parr, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Micha Rochal, Gena Donskoy, Victor Skersis, Dorothea Rochburne, Ullrike Rosenbach, Ed Ruscha, Etalo Scanga, Alan Scarritt, Yasu Suzuka, Rasa Todosijevic, Richard Tuttle, Wolf Vostell, Lawrence Wiener, Doug Wheeler, and William T.

The box and contents are in FINE condition with the only notable flaw being a slight gap where the box closes at the top edge.
Photographs of the box cover as well as examples of some of the contents appear in the photo section of the listing.
