Allen Ruppersberg, Placemats and Poems (2008)

Allen Ruppersberg followed in the tradition of the travelling bard by performing and selling poems at reduced prices during the time of the fair. Setting up an ad-hoc stall inside the Koenig bookstore, Ruppersberg brought some of the anti-commercialism of the beat era to the slick marketplace of the art fair.

Allen Ruppersberg (b.1944) is an American artist based in New York and Santa Monica.
