Critical text on the legacy of 1970s feminist artists.
Martha Wilson Sourcebook is the first in a new publication series by ICI that offers a fresh perspective on social, political, and cultural issues impacting artists’ practices. Each compendium is comprised of articles, letters, newspaper cuttings, extracts from books, and images that an artist selects from their own archive and annotates with personal commentaries on the themes that arise. By using this subjective approach as a lens through which to rediscover pivotal debates in art and reconsider seminal texts, as well as to introduce little-known or out-of-print material, the Sourcebook series places emphasis on the histories and theories that have had a formative influence on an artist’s thought process.
David Wojnarowicz's photography, painting, performance, and writing aggressively challenge authority and hypocrisy. Brush Fires in the Social Landscape brings us the voice of an artist who spoke to and for a generation wrestling with issues of sexuality, identity, and the fragility of life.
