Book Description

First edition. Signed by the artist. Original printed cardboard with stapled cotton ties. Photographic artist's book documenting New York's Broadway. 249 images laid out horizontally, three images to a panel, on 83 individual panels, each attached end-to-end so that it becomes an uninterrupted continuum of street views tracing New York City’s most celebrated thoroughfare as it travels the length of Manhattan from its Southernmost point at The Battery all the way to the Spuyten Duyvil. With the Manhattan bus map inserted to the rear as called for. A very good copy of a delicate production with a little rubbing and spotting to the extremities. Folded out in full the contents extend to 99 feet (30 metres).
Dealer Notes
One of only 200 copies. Signed by Henderikse in pencil on the upper cover. Broadway's binding and format is quite evidently modeled on Ed Ruscha's 1971 book Dutch Details which he had published as a project related to Sonsbeek 71 at the Groninger Museum. This exhibition, which also included Henderickse's work, focused on site-specific work, non-traditional media such as artists' books, and other new forms to which the era's conceptually oriented art practices were giving rise.
