Lucy Steeds (Ed.) - Documents of Contemporary Art Series

This anthology provides a multivocal critique of the exhibition of contemporary art, bringing together the writings of artists, curators, and theorists. Collectively these diverse perspectives are united by the notion that although the focus for modernist discussion was individual works of art, it is the exhibition that is the prime cultural carrier of contemporaneity. The texts encompass exhibition design and form; exhibitions that are object-based, live, or discursive; projects that no longer rely on a physical space to be visited in person; artists’ responses to being curated and their reflections on the potential of acting curatorially. Set against the rise of the curator as an influential force in the contemporary art world, this volume underlines the crucial role of artists in questioning and shaping the phenomenon of the exhibition.

Artists surveyed include:
Rasheed Araeen, Art & Language, AA Bronson, Daniel Buren, Graciela Carnevale, Andrea Fraser, Piero Gilardi, Group Material, Richard Hamilton, Huang Rui, Laboratoire Agit-Art, Louise Lawler, Glenn Ligon, Konrad Lueg, Matsuzawa Yutaka, Palle Nielsen, OHO (Marko Pogagnik), Hélio Oiticica, Philippe Parreno, Victor Pasmore, Raqs Media Collective, Gerhard Richter, Ruangrupa, Situationist International, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Andy Warhol, Katsuhiro Yamaguchi

Reinventing The Wheel: The Readymade Century

Publication to accompany the exhibition “Reinventing The Wheel: The Readymade Century”, 3 October – 14 December 2013, Monash University Museum of Art, Victoria, Australia.

Arguably the most influential development in art of the twentieth century, the use of the readymade was set in motion 100 years ago with Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel. Giving birth to an entire artistic language, Duchamp’s conversion of an unadorned, everyday object into a figure of high art completely inverted how people considered artistic practice. Suddenly, art was capable of being everywhere and in everything. It was a revolutionary moment in modern art, and the ripples from this epochal shift still resonate today.

Reinventing the Wheel: the Readymade Century pays tribute to this seminal work and traces the subsequent elaboration of neo-dada practices, with a particular focus upon everyday and vernacular contexts; the mysterious and libidinous potential of sculptural objects; institutional critique and nominal modes of artistic value; pop, minimalism and industrial manufacture. These discursive contexts will also provide a foundation to explore more recent tendencies related to unmonumental and social sculpture, post-fordism and other concerns, particularly among contemporary Australian artists.

Bringing together works by over 50 artists – from Duchamp and Man Ray to Andy Warhol and Martin Creed, along with some of Australia’s leading practitioners – this is a one-of-a-kind salute to an idea that continues to define the very nature of contemporary art.

The Universal Addressability of Dumb Things
Mark Leckey Curates


Turner Prize-winning artist Mark Leckey presents the latest in Hayward Touring’s celebrated series of artist-curated exhibitions. “The Universal Addressibility of Dumb Things” will explore the theme of transformative technology, a kind of techno-animism, where the inanimate comes to life, and no distinction is drawn between things mental and things material, the sacred and the profane. Contemporary works of art, mechanical objects, historical material from science and archaeological museums, factory prototypes and imagery from internet sites will coexist in the pages of this book, creating ‘a colossal body across time and space’. The artist also intends this to be a book in which the greatest thinkers and writers in this field are brought together – as well as his own introductory text, fiction, cultural criticism and the history of technology will be brought together in three unique, authoritative new texts.
