Edited by Julie Ault. Essays by Doug Ashford, Julie Ault, Sabrina Locks, Tim Rollins. Published by Four Corners Books From 1979 to 1996 the artists collaborative Group Material produced 45 projects that radically overhauled curatorial thought, setting art alongside documentary material and storebought objects, as well as presenting work in buses, subways, newspapers and on the streets. Group Material's original members came from backgrounds in feminism, Marxist theory, design and popular culture, and curated classic exhibits reflecting this eclecticism, such as Democracy, AIDS Timeline and The People's Choice a collection of everyday objects (wedding photos, dolls, even a cigarette-pack collage) gathered from people living on their block. Show and Tell is the first monograph on Group Material, and charts the group's activities, with essays by original members, plus original documents, photographs, drawings, correspondence and interviews.
