|Title:||George Rickey Archive|
|Artists names are listed alphabetically in each volume.|
George Rickey (1907-2002), a prominent sculptor, teacher, lecturer, and author has been well-known since the 1950s for his kinetic sculptures which explore the effects of light and movement.
The collection consists of 27 albums of material collected by Rickey in preparation for his 1967 book Constructivism: Origins and Evolution (NY: Braziller). The albums contain correspondence, clippings, photographs and exhibition catalogues for artists, most of whom are discussed in Rickey's book. Rickey's interest in contemporary kinetic and optical art is reflected in his book and in the Archive.
The contents of Volume XXVII consist only of slides and/or negatives, including works by artists not represented elsewhere in the collection.
The records are open for research and contain no restricted materials.
