eBay Up for bid is an extraordinary opportunity to purchase a very rare SIGNED copy of the JOHN GIORNO multiple entitled CHINESE FORTUNE GAME from the legendary 1968 subscription based art journal S.M.S. (Shit Must Stop). Please see below for more information about these six very collectible S.M.S. portfolios. The John Giorno contribution comes from the #6 portfolio, and consists of a Chinese restaurant themed card game. It is housed in a black portfolio case with slotted trays to hold three different sets of silkscreened, day-glo color game cards. The 30 different cards are accompanied by an instruction booklet in the form of a Chinese restaurant menu. The overall dimensions of the portfolio case measure 6" x 10". The portfolio case, 30 cards, and instruction booklet are all in excellent vintage condition. There is a light ball point pen mark to the front cover of the booklet as shown. Giorno has signed the bottom right corner of the instruction booklet in black marker (last page) as issued. The signature is guaranteed to be authentic and from the deluxe edition.   PLEASE NOTE: This particular copy comes from the very rare signed edition of the SMS Project, and is priced accordingly. There were only 100 copies for this deluxe edition (plus a few extra that were set aside for the publishers). Almost all of the 73 artists solely signed their contributions for the deluxe portfolio, while a few others chose to sign, number and/or date. Reportedly, there were also a very small handful of artists who did not sign at all (due to philosophical reasons or their recent death...Duchamp for instance). Please see my other auctions for a few more of these very rare signed SMS pieces, as well as my remaining inventory of unsigned works from the edition of 2000. This item will be packed flat and shipped via USPS priority mail. I am happy to combine shipping for multiple purchases.   "Founded in New York City by artist, collector and dealer William Copley, S.M.S. was an art collection in a box, filled with small-scale, often whimsical, artworks available by subscription. Delivering art through the post offered Copley, and his collaborator Dmitri Petrov, a way to circumvent the art market and make contemporary art accessible to nearly anyone. Inspired by Copley’s mentor and friend Marcel Duchamp’s Boîte-en-valise, S.M.S. was conceived as an inter-media and intergenerational publication that would present artworks by prominent and unknown artists side by side. The magazine gathered an impressive range including the Surrealist luminaries Man Ray and Meret Oppenheim, Pop artists Richard Hamilton and Roy Lichtenstein, composers Lamont Young and Terry Riley, and an up-and-coming generation of conceptual and post-studio artists such as Joseph Kosuth and Bruce Nauman. Regardless of stature, each was paid $100 for their contribution. This egalitarian spirit extended to the communal atmosphere of Copley’s upper west side Letter Edged in Black Press loft which functioned as an unofficial hangout for many of the participants. The six issues of S.M.S. are composed of “original reproductions”—luxurious, exacting replicas of each artist’s work in an edition of approximately 2,000. The magazine spared no expense, seeking out, and even inventing, varied and obscure production methods including Lil Picard’s labor intensive Burned Bow Tie—each of which needed to be individually singed. The enormous edition size—and the affordable price of $125 per subscription—enabled a much broader swath of the public to collect the internationally recognized artists contained in the portfolios. Ultimately short-lived, S.M.S. portfolios were mailed bi-monthly between February and December of 1968 directly to subscribers, with each portfolio containing approximately a dozen works of art."
