finding aid for the Michael Corris papers of the Art & Language New York group, 1965-2002
Series IV. Art & Language, 1977-2002 6.7 linear feet (3 boxes and 7 flatfiles)
This series is comprised of work by Art & Language following the dissolution of the New York section in 1977. The ideological differences and fissures between the New York and the United Kingdom groups, which had so well defined the New York group, were put to rest for the most part by the remaining members in order to create new projects during this period. The series includes illustrations for the journal Art-Language as well as documentation for the exhibition The Artist Out of Work: Art & Language, 1972-1981, and the exhibition Art & Language in Practice, 1998.
