Buckminster Fuller Editions at Barbara Krakow Gallery


Barbara Krakow's gallery on Newbury Street in Boston is the city's best-regarded (and most welcoming) gallery, showing a range of modern and contemporary art. Currently, the gallery has on hand an edition of prints of intentions of Buckminster Fuller from 1981. Each print is on two sheets, a photographic print paired with a clear polyfilm overlay, with handwritten sketches and notes developing the concept. The series includes several Dymaxion proposals, including vehicles, a few tension-integrity and truss structures, a geodesic globe, a non-capsizing rower, and a subsea island (third from bottom below). The friendly staff at the gallery are happy to bring them out or show you, or they are available for sale individually for the mid-four figures.
