This rare, first edition copy of Café du Reve by Marc Camille Chaimowicz was printed in 1985 and is hand-signed by the artist on the title page.
Illustrated with numerous colour and black and white plates on glossy paper wrapper, this artist's book on reverie continues the thme of Chaimowicz's first publication Dream: An Anectodote (1977). The book is structured like a journal that travels between the desert, the park and the hotel room using a collage of polaroids, postcards and texts in combination with the artist's characteristic motifs. Café du Reve is an important example of the Chaimowicz's pairing of text and image as well as his early experiments with book form. Marc Camille Chaimowicz: Your Place or Mine... is on view at the Jewish Museum March 16 to August 5, 2018. This first solo museum exhibition in the United States brings together the artist's cross-disciplinary work in painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, installation, furniture, lighting, ceramics, textiles, and wallpaper made over his nearly 50 year career
