Poster folded and sent by airmail to Rini Dippel (1931-2021), who worked at the Stedelijk Museum for two and a half decades, rising to the status of deputy director by the time she retired in 1993. As a curator there, she organized exhibitions devoted to many of today's most celebrated artists, including Richard Serra, Ellsworth Kelly, Bas Jan Ader, Tetsumi Kudo, Gilbert & George, and others.
In 1985, Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat joined forces to create a series of artworks, which became the focus of an exhibition in New York presented by Tony Shafrazi Gallery and Bruno Bischofberger. This exhibition poster showcases the two iconic artists wearing boxing gloves, captured in a portrait by Michael Halsband.
