These files cover sculpture commissions, the filming and distribution of the 1981 documentary film Alexander Liberman: A Lifetime Burning, gifts of artwork to various institutions, business relationships with various galleries and museums, Liberman's personal art collection, and various events and appearances. Most folders contain a wide variety of materials, including correspondence notes, forms, reports, printed matter, design drawings, photographic materials, and audiovisual media.
This series is arranged alphabetically by subject, project name, or entity name. Project and exhibition related correspondence is also found in Series 2, 5, and 7. The bulk of the photographs of artwork are arranged in Series 11.
