Accessibility of the Art Object and VAP

Includes general correspondence from this time and material relating to these two projects. The Accessibility of the Art Object, inspired by the idea that art should be fuelled by a sense of hazard and accident sought to make art accessible in terms of price and to all. The project included postcards (DUNUC ARTS 4382) and artwork sent to members of the public, badges, and products sold at a Christmas stall. Material includes a 1978 manifesto, a 1978 diary / journal of Horobin and slides of his work. VAP (Visual Arts Promotions) was a collaboration with Edinburgh artists (part of the Edinburgh Group). The material includes notes on the Edinburgh Group meetings, slides of VAP exhibitions and material relating to Horobin's Live performance in the Henderson Gallery.
