One of a series of classified ads published in Brazilian and other newspapers that advocate absurd or impossible situations, Air Art Proposal of Composition of Colored Clouds in the Sky of New York articulates Paulo Bruscky’s plan to tint the metropolitan sky. A pioneer of mail art working with ephemeral materials, performance, and text, Bruscky produced the work during his first trip to New York, which was supported by a Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowship. Air Art Proposal follows a related ad, published in the newspaper Diario de Pernambuco, which appeals for “a chemist, meteorologist, or anyone capable of coloring a cloud.”
