Macho Man, Tell It To My Heart: Collected by Julie Ault
NEW YORK • Artists Space • 24 November 2013 - 23 February 2014
|For thirty-five years American artist and Group Material cofounder Julie Ault (born 1957) has engaged in various forms of collaboration and sustained dialogue with fellow artists. The sharing of artworks has marked these discourses, emanating from the address of politics, aesthetics and the social function of art that has structured Ault’s work, and that of many of her contemporaries. The formulation of such a substantial collection constituted largely through gifting and exchange speaks to a circulation of ideas through means alternative to the predominant economy of art mediated by institutions and galleries. In its scope, and encompassing of works produced from varying artistic standpoints, the collection also emphasizes the connectedness of art objects to specific contexts, and as such their mediation between private and public discourse. |
