On Friday I plan on feasting on the Experimental Women in Flux exhibition at the MOMA organized by Sleelagh Bevan with David Senior. To make things even better Jan Herman, who published Alison Knowles's Journal of the Identical Lunch (1971) and Philip Corner's performance of Knowles score (1973) under the Nova Broadcast imprint, is going to take me through the exhibition.
The score: "A tunafish sandwich on wheat toast with lettuce and butter, no mayo, and a glass of buttermilk or a cup of soup."
The venue: Riss Food on 8th Avenue between 22nd and 23rd Street.
Herman published the Corner book while he was in Vermont working for Dick Higgins's Something Else Press. Graham Mackintosh did the printing. All the connections and associations in alternative publishing in this copy of The Identical Lunch give the reader quite a bit to chew on and digest. Mouth-watering, filling and nutritious. Feed your head.
