Selected items include printed matter in a wide variety of formats, among them Western and accordion-fold codices, broadsides, and a wall-hung contemporary quipu. The artists represented include John Ashbery, Susan Bee, Charles Bernstein, Ted Berrigan, John Cage, Henrik Drescher, Emily McVarish, Carolee Schneemann, Buzz Spector, and Cecilia Vicuña.
