The Pollution Show
Oakland, Oakland Museum, . Exhibition catalog for a show by 70 artists, dedicated to the theme that we as a species had reached the point where we were able to imperil our own survival. All types of pollution (air, land, water; toxins, chemicals, pesticides) were considered for the show, but as the introductory statement from the Sierra Club states: "Whole new areas of pollution problems are being discovered constantly....what happens on a large scale when we change, even slightly, the quality of the world's atmosphere...the 'greenhouse effect' would cause inundation of the world's coastlines and massive, probably catastrophic, changes in the world's ecology..." This is a loose leaf catalog, with approximately two dozen 8-5/8" x 8-5/8" cards laid into a pictorial folder, most depicting individual works from the show. Other than a "withdrawn" stamp from a museum library on the title card, the contents are fine, in a rubbed, near fine folder. Nine copies located in OCLC. [#034994] $250
