This site is an index to selected artist journals of the 1960s and 1970s. Currently issues one thru nine of  Avalanche (New York: 1970-1976) are indexed. The table of contents of each issue of dé-coll/age (Cologne: 1962-1969) are included in the index as well. This journal will be fully indexed at a later date.

Search or browse by name of artist, performer, author, curator, gallery, exhibition title, or business to discover where your topic is mentioned in the journals. People are listed in ABC order by first letter of their last name, places and events by first letter of the place/exhibition name. Hold the mouse over the letter to see the listings. For best results, use the arrow keys on the keyboard to move up and down the screen.
