Tell it to My Heart Vol. 1
Collected by Julie Ault

 

Julie Ault is an artist, curator, writer, and editor, whose work emphasizes and celebrates the complex interrelationships between cultural production and politics. Ault cofounded the New York artists’ collaborative Group Material, which between 1979 and 1996 explored this relationship between art, activism and politics through socially themed exhibitions and publicly-sited projects. The collection of artworks Ault has assembled over the last 30 years speaks to her practice as one built on exchange, friendship and a critical notion of mutable histories.

Tell It To My Heart – Collected by Julie Ault is published by Hatje Cantz in collaboration with Artists Space, New York; Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Basel; and Culturgest, Lisbon, and accompanies a three-part exhibition staged around the artworks in Ault’s possession. The exhibition was initiated by Nikola Dietrich and Scott Cameron Weaver at Museum für Gegenwartskunst, and was presented in Basel, Lisbon and New York between 2013 and 2014. The first volume of the publication was published to coincide with the exhibitions, and centers on an index of works along with detailed commentary on these works from the diverse voices of the book’s editors – Julie Ault, Martin Beck, Nikola Dietrich, Heinz Peter Knes, Rasmus Røhling, Jason Simon, Scott Cameron Weaver, Danh Vo and Amy Zion. Over the course of her 35-plus years at the forefront of New York’s art culture, Ault has amassed a superb collection of contemporary art, most of it given to her by artist friends and admirers. Almost more of an interiors book in the style of “Apartamento” magazine, “Tell It to My Heart” takes us through Ault’s New York apartment, reproducing works by artists such as Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Roni Horn, Tim Rollins & K.O.S., Andres Serrano, Nancy Spero and Danh Vo among many others. Together, and in situ, the artworks disclose a highly personal experience of an art community, initially centered in New York during Ault’s formative years, but with a reach that has long since transcended regional classifications.

The “Tell It to My Heart” books take us through Ault’s collection in different contexts, reproducing works by artists such as Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Roni Horn, Tim Rollins & K.O.S., Andres Serrano, Nancy Spero and Danh Vo among many others. Together, and in situ, the artworks disclose a highly personal experience of an art community, initially centered in New York during Ault’s formative years, but with a reach that has long since transcended regional classifications.

Volume 2 follows a more reflective and distanced mode than its predecessor, including installation images of the exhibitions, and a series of essays from scholars and curators that respond to the overall character and process of Tell It To My Heart. The publication also includes a comprehensive checklist of artworks exhibited across the three venues, as well as those works included in the film programs accompanying each exhibition.

Tell It To My Heart – Collected by Julie Ault, Volume 2 is edited by Richard Birkett, Martin Beck and Julie Ault, and includes texts by curator Richard Birkett; art historian Patricia Falguières; writer Sarah Schulman; and archivist Marvin J. Taylor, with graphic design by Project Projects, New York.

This Will Have Been
Art, Love, and Politics in the 1980s

Helen Molesworth; With essays by Johanna Burton, William Horrigan, Elisabeth Lebovici, Kobena Mercer, Sarah Schulman, and Frazer Ward.

Art of the 1980s oscillated between radical and conservative, capricious and political, socially engaged and art historically aware. Published in association with the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, this fascinating book chronicles canonical as well as nearly forgotten works of the 1980s, arguing that what has often been dismissed as cynical or ironic should be viewed as a struggle on the part of artists to articulate their needs and desires in an increasingly commodified world. The major developments of the decade—the rise of the commercial art market, the politicization of the AIDS crisis, the increased visibility of women and gay artists and artists of color, and the ascension of new media—are illuminated in works by Sophie Calle, Nan Goldin, Jeff Koons, Lorna Simpson, Leigh Bowery, Jimmy De Sana, Carroll Dunham, Jimmie Durham, Alex Garry, Robert Gober, Nan Goldin, Mike Kelley, Paul McCarthy, Annette Messager, Cady Noland, Albert Oehlen, Richard Prince, Cindy Sherman, Julian Schnabel, Rosemarie Trockel, Jeff Wall, Charlie Ahearn, Gretchen Bender, Black Audio Film Collective, Jennifer Bolande, Gregg Bordowitz, Eugenio Dittborn, Gran Fury, Group Material, Guerrilla Girls, Hans Haacke, David Hammons, Jenny Holzer, Alfredo Jaar, Barbara Kruger, Louise Lawler, Donald Moffett, Lorraine O’Grady, Paper Tiger Television, Adrian Piper, Lari Pittman, Tim Rollins and K.O.S., Christy Rupp, Doris Salcedo, Juan Sánchez, Tseng Kwong Chi and Keith Haring, Carrie Mae Weems, Christopher Williams, Krzystof Wodiczko, Judith Barry, Ashley Bickerton, Deborah Bright, Marlene Dumas, Felix Gonzales-Torres, Peter Hujar, G. B. Jones, Isaac Julian, Rotimi Fani Kayode, Mary Kelly, Silvia Kolbowski, Louise Lawler, Sherrie Levine, Jack Leirner, Robert Mapplethorpe, Richard Prince, Marlon Riggs, David Robbins, Laurie Simmons, Haim Steinbach, David Wojnarowicz, Dotty Attie, Robert Colescott, General Idea, Robert Gober, Jack Goldstein, Pater Halley, Mary Heilmann, Candy Jernigan, Mike Kelley, Martin Kippenberger, Louise Lawler, Sherrie Levine, Christian Marclay, Allan McCollum, Peter Nagy, Raymond Pettibon, Stephen Prina, Martin Puryear, Gerhard Richter, David Salle, Doug + Mike Starn, Tony Tasset, James Welling, and Christopher Wool, among others. Essays by leading scholars provide unique perspectives on the decade’s competing factions and seemingly contradictory elements, from counterculture to the mainstream, radicalism to democracy and historical awareness, conservatism to feminist politics.

Complete with critical texts on each work, This Will Have Been brings into focus the full impact of the art, artists, and political and cultural ruptures of this paradigm-shifting decade. More than 200 full-color reproductions of works in a range of media, including drawing, painting, photography, and sculpture, illustrate this ambitious guide to a period of artistic transformation.
