Biographical/Historical Note

Jean Brown was born in Brooklyn, New York, 20 December 1911. Her father, Irving Levy, was a rare book dealer. During the Depression Brown worked in a library in Springfield, Massachusetts where she was trained in library cataloging.

Brown amassed a significant and rich body of materials by many of the most influential and challenging artists of the 20th century. The initial inspiration for the collection was provided by Dada painters and poets: an anthology, 1951, edited by Robert Motherwell. In the 1960s Brown and her husband, Leonard traveled to Europe frequently to acquire Dada and Surrealist art works, books, pamphlets and papers, many documented in Motherwell's anthology.

When Leonard died in 1971, Brown moved into the Shaker seed house in Tyringham, Massachusetts. From this point on her collection grew rapidly as Brown acquired materials from those movements, especially Fluxus, mail art and concrete poetry, which grew out of Dada and Surrealism. Many of these artists worked on the fringes of the established museum and gallery system and showed their work in alternative spaces or created alternative distribution systems.

Brown's primary goal was to assemble a study collection. She acquired comprehensively on the topics mentioned above. This included standing orders with some small presses to acquire all of their output. Her early appreciation of books lead naturally to an interest in artists' books. If an artist's work interested her she asked the artist to create a book for her archive. In the early 1970s, her son Jon sent notices about the archive to every art history graduate program. Scholars and graduate students with valid research interests were invited to use the collection.

Brown maintained close friendships with many of the artists whose work she collected, including George Maciunas, Dick Higgins, Ken Friedman, Peter Frank, Mirella Bentivoglio, and Rimma and Valery Gerlovin, to name a few. They visited frequently and created works for the archive in her upstairs workroom, a room designed by Maciunas. Brown became a part of the international mail art network. Every major mail artist sent her examples of their work. Eventually, she found it impossible to keep up with the quantity of mail she was receiving and by the mid-1980s had stopped answering their letters. Brown died May 1, 1994 in Tyringham.

Scope and Content of Collection

The Jean Brown papers (1916-1995, bulk 1958-1995) form a significant ensemble of original works and printed matter, and document Brown's intent to build a study collection of avant-garde materials. Dada and Surrealism provided the core inspiration for Brown's acquisitions, as well as for the later artists whose work she collected. In-depth holdings by artists participating in Fluxus, happenings, concrete, sound and visual poetry, new music, mail art, copy art, rubber stamp printing, and video and performance art underscore her range of interests. The collection's broad scope presents a comprehensive account of alternative movements, distribution networks and exhibition venues of the 1960s and 1970s.

A significant portion of the archive consists of approximately 500 objects created by Fluxus artists and other contemporaries. Another large component documents Brown's interaction with the international network of mail artists and those distributing their work via post. Considerable printed matter records the exhibition and performance activities of artists and the alternative artists' spaces which sponsored them. Also included are bibliographic notes written by Brown, audio cassettes, reel-to-reel tapes, and films. Publications received with the archive have been separated to the Getty Research Library.

Acquisition Information

Acquired from Jean Brown in 1988 with the exception of Series VIII. Additional correspondence and notes acquired from the family of Jean Brown in 2016.

Processing History

A number of people processed and cataloged parts of the Jean Brown papers from 1988-2002. Eric Vos, a researcher and consultant during periods of 1988, 1989 and 1990, processed and cataloged sections of the collection (see research file for his report and checklist). Jon Hendricks, consultant, visited in 1989 August and helped Vos identify Fluxus materials. Intern Albert DePetrillo organized a portion of the correspondence in 1990 February.

Some of the objects were damaged in the 1994 Northridge earthquake. This incident prompted a team of collection maintenance personnel - Rick Zwies, John Pearson, Jessica Holada - to measure and order boxes for each object and write conservation notes. Most of this work was done in 1995-1996, but continued until 1997. Bennington intern Mikel Wadewitz and Pearson photographed about 70% of the objects.

From April 1996 to May 1997, Lynda Bunting reorganized Vos's series arrangements, sorted and integrated unprocessed materials from ca. 25 boxes, and wrote the bulk of this finding aid. Much of the Dada and Surrealist ephemera had been separated from the archive in 1985-1986. Bunting collected these materials, along with some others that had been separated, and reintegrated them into the collection. In addition, she transferred to the library 181 sound recordings and ca. 950 books, serials, and prints. Over 320 book sales catalogs were deaccessioned. The art objects were reorganized into a rough alphabetical order, thus rendering Vos' numbering system obsolete.

In Summer 1996, Phil Curtis integrated and organized materials within Series II. and Series III. From September-December 1996, Kirsten Hammer organized most of Series III, Series IV., and Series V. Peter Frank was hired as a consultant for four days in February 1997 to make attributions on unidentified items.

In 2000-2002 Annette Leddy and Julio Vera provided object-level descriptions for the art objects in series VI.

In 2016, one box of additional correspondence and notes received from the family of Jean Brown was cataloged by Kit Messick and intellectually integrated into the collection as Series VIII. In December 2018, three boxes of unprocessed material, maily prints and posters, were processed and intellectually integrated into Series I by Pietro Rigolo (boxes 319*, 320*, 321).

Container List

Series I. Artists' files, 1916-1995, bulk 1958-1985 ca. 96 linear ft. 92 boxes, 1 roll, and 43 flat file folders
Files contain of a vast array of media, including manuscripts and typescripts, chapbooks, performance instructions and scores, posters, drawings, prints, exhibition and performance announcementsm, mail art, copy art, rubber stamp printing, and some correspondence and clippings, filed alphabetically by artist. The genesis of the archive can be found within the relatively small, but seminal collection of manuscripts, announcements, letters and clippings of the Dada and Surrealist artists Robert Desnos, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Richard Huelsenbeck, Man Ray, Kurt Schwitters, and Tristan Tzara (see also Series III for more Dada and Surrealist printed matter).
Materials by Fluxus and mail artists comprise the bulk of this series. Of primary import are manuscripts, performance instructions, scores, correspondence, drawings and announcements by Fluxus artists, including George Brecht, Robert Filliou, Milan Knízák, Alison Knowles, Nam June Paik, Tomas Schmit, Carolee Schneemann, Daniel Spoerri, Ben Vautier, Wolf Vostell, and Robert Watts. Generally, Brown purchased from the artists themselves, and in some instances acquired an artist's personal archive. Thus, this series contains large holdings of documents generated by or sent to Sas Colby, Albert Fine, Ken Friedman, John Furnival, Rimma Gerlovina and Valeriy Gerlovin, Dick Higgins (see also Special Collections accession no. 870613), George Maciunas, Charlotte Moorman, Opal Nations, Benjamin Patterson, Bern Porter (see also Special Collections accession no. 900270), Fred Truck, and Emmett Williams. Most of the correspondence is amongst these artists and their friends and colleagues with a preponderance located in the files of Furnival, Maciunas and Williams. Letters from Brown are interspersed.
Also notable are the large concentrations of mail art, rubber stamp printing and copy art by Anna Banana, Guglielmo Achille Cavellini, COUM transmissions, Amelia Etlinger, John Held, E.F. Higgins III, Davi Det Hompson, Stu Horn, Ray Johnson, Mohammed Archive, Carlo Pittore, Steve Random, Al Souza, and many others. Concrete, visual and sound poetry is substantially represented through manuscripts, typescripts, chapbooks and prints by John M. Bennett, Augusto de Campos, Thomas A. Clark, Bob Cobbing, Coracle Press, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Dom Sylvester Houédard, Jackson Mac Low, Tom Phillips, and Herman de Vries. Scores and performance announcements highlight the new music works of John Cage and Philip Corner.

Series III. Topical ephemera, 1917-1989, bulk 1965-1989 ca. 17 linear ft. 12 boxes and 5 flat folders

Items typically document group activities occurring in venues different from those in Series II. The small presses section, the bulk of this series, is comprised of catalogs and publicity from publishers, distributors and bookstores dealing in artists' books, poetry and art multiples. Notations by Brown record her acquisitions. Most topics are arranged chronologically, except for the semiotics and small presses sections which are filed alphabetically.

Quarter inch plywood board partially stained with green and red ink over which is printed this message in black ink: "Calling, a Happening by Allan Kaprow performed in and out of New York in the summer of 1965, is one of the landmarks of the form, and its scenario typifies the poetic ritual style he has developed. This present graphic representation, however, began as an improvisation, when Kaprow, playing with a set of rubber stamp letters, stamped out each word of the scenario on a separate index card. I continued the game by assembling the cards on the copyboard of a graphic arts camera and shooting them and by adding an element of color play. The resulting object is not, however, a final one in any sense. While the original scenario may be read by starting from bottom to top, right hand column to left hand, on the sliver, blue, red, yellow and, finally, brown sheets, there are other stories which the reader is invited to tell, other games for him to play. - Dick Higgins, New York City, September 26, 1967. - 25 signed and numbered copies have been produced of which this is number 1." Over this are a sheet of white Plexiglas (50.5 x 59.5 x .5 cm.) and five sheets of clear plastic (51 x 59.5 cm. each). The clear sheets are printed over with words arranged in loose grid columns and rows, each in different colored inks (red, turquoise, silver, yellow, brownish red), which, when read in different directions group into loose "narratives," and which are complicated further by overlaying the sheets.
