Original poster produced on the occasion of Jim Dine’s 1971 exhibition at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden. This vintage poster reproduces the artist’s lithograph The Red Bandana: a classic bandana sketched in black with a beautifully reticulated wash of red, accompanied by lively sprays of ink. The rounded typeface is pure retro delight.

Jim Dine’s careful depiction of everyday objects imbues them with life: tools, hearts, robes, and hearts serve as frameworks for formal experimentation and as vessels for meaning. Here, the artist delights in minimalism: a scarf as Color Field painting, Rothko’s Americana. Below the sketch, Dine’s breezy cursive reads “the red bandana”.

Text reads: Jim Dine, Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, 8 Oktober-21 November 1971, Geoeffnet Dienstag-Sonntag10-18H, Mittwoch 10-21H.


The Artist

Jim Dine

Jim Dine is an American pop artist who was born in Ohio in 1935 and was known for his painting, drawing, sculpting and printmaking. He is considered to be a part of the Neo-Dada movement, a style that opposed the emotional expressions of Abstract Impressionism and instead, denies aesthetics by using mundane subjects and focusing on performance. Dine was first recognised by the art industry when he displayed ‘Happenings’ a type of performance art in collaboration with the musician John Cage. In 1959, it was exhibited over six days in an environment or installation in New York City’s Reuben Gallery, where features of light, sound, projects and viewer participation all played a part in the display.
