Would like to know more about John Nixon

by Heimo Zobernig


On 7 November, the Pestorius Sweeney House in Brisbane hosted a John Nixon one-day memorial exhibition and panel discussion. To document the event, the Viennese artist Heimo Zobernig (Documenta 9, 10, 11) has created an A2 format four-colour (CMYK) offset printed poster.

The invitation to Heimo Zobernig, who is renowned for his typographic work, was aimed at highlighting John Nixon's internationalism. In 1978, John had his first solo exhibition in London with the important conceptual art dealer Barry Barker and over the years developed a wide network of international contacts. He also published several anthologies of pages by international artists, including Heimo Zobernig, who honours that association with his poster.

The Zobernig poster is inexpensive, with all profits going to the John Nixon Estate, and would make an ideal Xmas gift.
