Item #30180 The Perfect Thought (Invitation). James Lee Byars.
The Perfect Thought (Invitation).

The Perfect Thought (Invitation).

Houston: Contemporary Arts Museum, 1990. Another conceptual invitation from James Lee Byars, with vernissage details for this Houston exhibition (The Perfect Thought, Sep. 8 – Oct. 28) printed directly to the front of the envelope, in embossed gold lettering, along with list of sponsors. The superfluous interior of the envelope is empty, save for a coiled golden thread. The exhibition originated at The University Art Museum, Berkeley (Apr. 18 – Jun. 24), for which a similar invitation was produced, albeit with the golden thread enclosed in a white envelope with black lettering. At both openings, Byars scheduled a precisely-timed action; here in Houston: "exactly at 9 PM." Envelope (5.5 x 8 inches) post-marked and addressed to Galerie Paul Sties in Kronberg. Minor creasing to envelope, else near fine.
