Receipt of Delivery: Limbo

August 31, 2012  |  By

Receipt of Delivery is a weekly series featuring Bay Area exhibition mailers selected from the SFMOMA Research Library’s collection of artists’ ephemera.

This Labor Day weekend post highlights Limbo, an artist-run project by Artspace (founded 1986) that transformed a restaurant on the corner of 9th Street and Folsom in San Francisco. Click here for several videos from the mid-1990s of different artists in the kitchen and their guest Wednesday night menus.

    What year did this take place? Looking at SFMOMA’s address, thinking it must be from pre-1995.

  2. Margaret Tedesco Says:

    You are correct on yiur hunch Megan. ArtSpace had some of the best events/programming/artist book publishing in the early to mid-90s.

    “your” it’s 2am…sleepwalking reply to your query.

  4. Megan Z Says:

    Thanks Margaret!
