Striking Schneeman-designed poster for a pair of 1972 events at Holly Solomon's 98 Greene St. Loft, her important and influencial downtown alternative arts space. The first announces (what we presume must be) a musical event, a "Taylor Mead Piano Concert [!?] with Mad-Regals with Pat Ast and Wayne County." We've been unable to trace any further information about this event, though with Warhol Factory regulars Ast and Mead, along with County, we can only imagine it was fantastic. This is, additionally, the earliest advertised Wayne County performance we've seen. The lower half of the poster promotes a group reading of "nature poems" by Ted Berrigan, Michael Brownstein, Larry Fagin, Dick Gallup, Steve Katz, Maureen Owen, Ron Padgett, Peter Schjeldahl, Anne Waldman, and Lewis Warsh in conjunction with an exhibition of Schneeman's work. Uncommon.
