Steven Leiber, a San Francisco native, made his reputation as a collector specializing in ephemera—brochures, flyers, posters, and exhibition announcements—designed by artists in the 1960s and 1970s. He maintained a gallery in the basement of his grandmother’s house in the city’s Marina district, calling it Steven Leiber’s Basement. As Leiber sorted and organized ephemera relating to Fluxus art, Beat and Concrete poetry movements, and the 1960s counterculture, he invited art scholars, curators, artists, and ephemera aficionados to explore his inventory.
