Seth Siegelaub, RIP

Curator, dealer and proponent of artists' publications, Seth Siegelaub died on Saturday in Basel, Switzerland at the age of 71.

Siegelaub is best known for championing the work of artists who would eventually go on to become the core members of what would come to be termed conceptual art: Carl Andre, Robert Barry, Douglas Huebler, Joseph Kosuth, Sol Lewitt, Robert Morris and Lawrence Weiner. He often presented their work in exhibitions that took the form of publications, such as the legendary Xerox Book (1968) and March 1969.
