What is this thing?
Revolutions Per Minute: The Art Record was unique in its ability to transcend the physical confines of the art gallery, but in the age of internet, this is now taken for granted. Anyone can conduct a search on the internet and find images of almost any piece of artwork, no matter its physical location. Though this may lessen the poignancy of the Feldman exhibit's mobility, the piece remains relevant in many other ways, such as the themes it explores and the historical context it provides.
This particular copy of "Revolutions Per Minute: The Art Record" was purchased by Vanderbilt Fine Arts Gallery in 1982, just five days after the exhibit opened in New York. It is number 107 in a edition of 500 copies of a special edition of the record, which included the 21 audio tracks on two vinyl discs and the 21 lithographs, each signed by the artist which created it.
