the Gilbert and Lila Silverman Fluxus Collection.

I`m reading about the Fluxus Archives at MOMA. Never thought about its size, but this makes sense. 400 boxes . Woah.


The Silverman Fluxus Collection includes an amazing quantity and diversity of Fluxus materials, collected over several decades by the Silvermans and their curator, Jon Hendricks. The
most current numbers tally almost 400 boxes of archival material; over 5,000 objects catalogued into the museum collection;
and over 1,500 printed volumes in the library. It was acquired by MoMA in 2009, with the understanding that the collection
be divided into three components, to be allocated among three departments: correspondence and other documentation to the
archives; artworks to the museum collection; and publications to the library.
