Baltz (Lewis) notebooks and ephemera

Scope and Content of Collection

The collection comprises ephemera and personal notebooks belonging to photographer Lewis Baltz (1945-2014) giving insight into his public exhibitions and daily life between 1987-2011. The material directly complements the Lewis Baltz archive (2013.M.31). The ephemera documents Baltz's solo and group exhibitions through invitations to exhibition openings, catalogues, printed articles, reviews, and notices by and about Baltz. The material relates to projects including Nevada, Rule Without Exception, and The Deaths in Newport Beach. Also present are several exhibition-related postcards sent by Baltz, two photographic portraits, and three photographs by Baltz originating from a press package. The notebooks present a detailed overview of Baltz's career-related activities and expenses between 1995-2004. In addition to information about his daily routines and private musings, the notebooks discuss various planned and realised projects such as exhibitions, art fairs, purchases, films, lectures, conferences, and book and magazine publications. The collection also provides insight to Baltz's international network of friends and colleagues in the art world including well-known figures in Canada, Europe, Japan, and the United States.


Arranged in two series:
Series I. Ephemera, 1987-2011;
Series II. Notebooks, 1995-2004.
