Evidence of the Avant Garde Ex-Library by Derek Sullivan
Online Book Launch
Saturday, 24 July @ 4:00 PM (ADT)
Umbrella Projects, in partnership with Art Metropole, is thrilled to announce the launch of Evidence of the Avant Garde Ex-Library by Derek Sullivan.
In this new artist book, Sullivan revisits Art Metropole’s 1984 Catalogue Evidence of the Avant Garde Since 1957, a seminal book and exhibition on distributed art practices (artworks that require wide circulation to fulfill their intent). Referencing a copy purchased from a library book sale, Sullivan produces hand-drawn facsimiles of the original pages with added interruptions of other distributed objects and artefacts, such as prisms of light, pollen, metro tickets, and pamphlets. In reproducing these moments, the drawings examine the poetics of circulating artworks and the content that they pick up along the way.
Saturday, 24 July — Online Book Launch @ 4:00 PM ADT
