The Record as Artwork: list of works

The Record as Artwork from Futurism to Conceptual Art

This list is from the catalog to the exhibition curated by Germano Celant copyright 1977 The Fort Worth Art Museum.
In addition to critical texts in English and French, there are three lists in the book: the Discography, Record Producers and List of Works (this list).

The exhibition is listed as being at the following venues:
The Fort Worth Art Museum, Fort Worth, Texas: December 4, 1977 - January, 1978
Moore College of Art Gallery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: February 3 - March 8, 1978
Musee d'Art Contemporain, Montreal, Quebec, Canada: September 7 - October 22, 1978
Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, Illinois

As details are different from what is on the actual records in some cases, I am including the listing for each record as it appears in the book. Some records are listed more than once for different pieces, so I have included all relevant listings for each release. Entries are included in the order they appear in the book unless there are multiple listing for the same release, in which case all information is contained in the first appearance in the catalog.
I have kept all typographic and spelling errors from the book.
