Printed Matter presents the exhibition Group Work, together with the launch of a publication by the same name by the Chicago-based artists' collective Temporary Services.
Temporary Services presents their Aesthetic Analysis of Human Groupings, an installation consisting of words and symbols for human groupings, as well as hundreds of photos of social groupings appropriated from books and magazines, displayed throughout the exhibition space.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Group Work, the latest book in Printed Matter's Emerging Artist Publication Series will be launched. Based on a pamphlet published by Temporary Services in 2002 titled Group Work: A Compilation of Quotes About Collaboration from a Variety of Sources and Practices, this publication provides a multitude of perspectives on the theme of Group Work by practitioners of artistic group practice from 1960s to the present.
Gardending Superfund Sites is an art project that fosters discourse around the issues of nature preservation, industry, and activism. Information and workshops with students and community groups to create a call to action to high tech industries to take responsibility for their actions.
