ARTISTS SPACE PRESENTS: MACHO MAN, TELL IT TO MY HEART: COLLECTED BY JULIE AULT
January 23 – February 20
This series is a companion film program to MACHO MAN, TELL IT TO MY HEART, an exhibition of works selected and extended from the collection of Julie Ault, on view at Artists Space from November 23, 2013 through February 23, 2014. As a founding member of the artists’ collaborative Group Material and as artist, curator, writer, and editor, Julie Ault’s dense practice and its roots in long-standing friendship with artists are reflected in the unique nature of her collection.
Curated by the artist Jason Simon, together with Julie Ault, this film program encompasses the practices and collaborations of several of the artists in the exhibition, while also serving as a partial index of the histories and affinities central to Ault’s work. Alongside the exhibition, it further amplifies the connectedness of art works to their specific contexts, and as such, their mediation between private and public discourse.
Screenings are held on Thursday evenings throughout the course of the exhibition, at Anthology Film Archives as well as at Artists Space: Books & Talks at 55 Walker Street. The programs listed below all take place at Anthology; a full calendar of screenings is available at www.artistsspace.org.
