The Compound Yellow Manual of Prompts, Provocations, Permissions & Parameters for Everyday Practices

ByJorge LuceroLaura Shaeffer

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
On the occasion of being invited to participate in the Hyde Park Art Center's "Artists Run Chicago 2.0", the experimental art space Compound Yellow produced its first book. "The Compound Yellow Manual of Prompts, Provocations, Permissions and Parameters for Everyday Practices" is an edited book that brings together 60 of Compound Yellow's hundreds of affiliates for the first time ever. The book--edited by Jorge Lucero (aka ConceptualArt Andteaching) and Laura Shaeffer--is simultaneously a work of scholarship and a work of art, it is curated and emergent, it is about one kind of practice and about hundreds. The book, not unlike Compound Yellow itself, functions as hub (a place where ideas come in and out of). Some of the contributions are made for contemplation and some of them for activation; all of them are meant for generativity. Contributors to this compendium include: Alberto Aguilar, Anon Anym, Atlan Arceo-Witzl, Katrin Asbury, Robert Beshara, Bless & the Overgraduators, Jessica Charlesworth & Tim Parsons, Alexander DeGraaf, Tiny Domingos, Rachel Epp Buller, Tony Foley, Conrad Freiburg, Matthew Girson, Shawn C.
