rebelled against the establishment, is too little appreciated in the United States. The only
show of his I ever saw was at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago a couple of decades
ago. But I’ve admired him for many years, ever since knowing some of his associates, the poet
Emmett Williams, for instance, and others who were part of the Fluxus group in the ’60s.
Now, at last, he has a posthumous
retrospective — he died in 1998 — at New York’s Museum of Modern
Art, entitled “Roth Time,” with installations as well at P.S. 1
Contemporary Art Center. Have a look at the very cool online exhibition.
Some other Roth stuff to look at: 58 works of his
the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art at The University of Oklahoma,
Box” at the MCA in Chicago. Oh, here’s a postcard
series, “Six Piccadillies” and
what they cost.
