Format: Paperback
'Group Material' was a group of artists who banded together in 1979 to open a storefront on the Lower East Side of New York for the purpose of creating exhibitions showcasing art and artifacts focused on topical social issues. Produced with an eclectic esthetic, the themes of these exhibitions ranged from an 'AIDS Timeline' to collections of everyday objects under the banner of 'The People's Choice'. Now the history of this group effort is superbly presented and profusely illustrated in "Show & Tell: A Chronicle of Group Material" expertly compiled and deftly edited by artist and author Julie Ault detailing this remarkable and memorable group effort that lasted from 1979 to 1996. A unique history of an equally unique group of diverse artists, "Show & Tell: A Chronicle of Group Material" is informed, informative, and highly recommended for personal and academic library 20th Century American Art History reference collections and supplemental reading lists.

Well done overview of Group Material's work, with somewhat fragmentary 'dips' into sections of their working process. Very nicely designed and laid out in the book. Well worth having if this collective's work is of interest to you.
