finding aid for the Michael Corris papers of the Art & Language New York group, 1965-2002
Series II. Materials relating to political and cultural organizations, 1968-1979 3.8 linear feet (1 box, 1 flatfile)
This series was originally titled by Michael Corris as "Materials relating to the participation of members of Art & Language New York in Artists Meeting for Cultural Change, Anti-Imperialist Cultural Union, and other political/cultural organizations." It documents Art & Language New York's association with the Artists Meeting for Cultural Change (AMCC) and the Anti-Imperialist Cultural Union (AICU). AMCC provided Art & Language New York with a different platform and with new colleagues, such as Lawrence Weiner and Lucy Lippard, to explore political cultural and artistic themes in order to provide consciousness-raising in the art community. The groups' collaboration produced important projects such as Boycott this Museum. Similarly the AICU, headed by Amiri Baraka, provided the opportunity for new collaborations and discussions of art politics and culture.
