Simon and Tom Bloor’s edition for Modern Art Oxford was produced to accompany their 2010 exhibition Hit & Miss, a commission for The Yard space in which the artists explored postwar British landscape design and structural developments through a maze-like structure made of painted wooden ‘hit and miss’ fencing, a common feature in postwar British building. The fencing also acted as a support for the reworked posters selected by the Bloor’s from Modern Art Oxford’s archive as part of the 50/50 project.
The Bloors versions of the posters accurately reproduced the designs in highly detailed ink, pencil and gouache drawings with one exception, they have replaced the original artists names with their own, irreverently inserting themselves into the exhibition history of Modern Art Oxford.
The posters reworked by the Bloors include; Stephen Willats: Visual Automatics and Visual Transmitters (1968); Enzo Ragazzini: photographer (1969); Objects & Documents: bought by Richard Smith for the Arts Council Collection (1973); Art & Language: 1966-1975 (1975); Philip Glass Ensemble (1975); Andre, Flavin, Judd, LeWitt: Sculpture, prints and drawings (1976); Donald Judd: Drawings 1956-76 (1976); Art in Action: a workshop demonstration by Pupils and Students of Oxfordshire Schools and Colleges (1977); Darcy Lange: Work Studies in Schools (1977); Dan Graham (1978); Hans Haacke: Works 1970-78 (1978); Joseph Kosuth: Text / Context (1978); Wells Coates: Architect and Designer 1895-1958 (1979); Sol LeWitt: Drawings 1958-1992 (1993).
The reworked Dan Graham poster has been produced in a limited edition of 50 prints, exclusive to Modern Art Oxford. All our editions come with a certificate of authenticity.
