2009 Edition of 250 custom gold-plated pins, Contract (3 X A4 white frames) In response to a invitation for an exhibition dedicated to collectors where no financial exchange was possible, a contract was created (a modified version of Seth Siegelaubs' 1971 contract "The artist's reserved rights transfer and sale agreement"), wherein all financial exchange agreements were replaced with those pertaining to pure belief in the current and future works of the artist.
