Vito Acconci, who taught at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, did two exhibitions at the Mezzanine gallery space. A year after his Accessibilities show, Acconci created a flyer for his second show in 1971 that contained a description of what will happen in the event of his death during a flight from New York to Halifax, of which he was afraid.
Typical for Acconci’s exhibition invitations, also the flyer for his 1970 performance Room Situation at Gain Ground contained a simple, typewritten description of what will happen during the performance.
Below are descriptions and notes by Vito Acconci published along his exhibition at John Gibson in New York in 1971, addressing subjects and notions around performance that he was concerned with at the time, including Accessibility, Action, Strategy and Interaction.
