Letter from an artist about economics

[Hollis Frampton]

Letters of Note
published this
from a film-maker to the Museum
of Modern Art
about a proposed exhibition of his work, which
they wanted him to participate in “…for love and honor and no money is included at all…”.

It’s not an easiliy excerpted letter, but here’s the last

I hope we can come to some agreement, and soon. I hope so out of
love for my embattled art, and because I honor all those who
pursue it. But if we cannot, then I must say, regretfully, however
much I want it to take place, that there can be no retrospective
showing of my work at the Museum of Modern Art.
