Art & Language: Emergency Conditionals
Emergency Conditionals was first presented at the conference ‘Philosophy and Conceptual Art’ at Kings College London in June 2004 and subsequently published in Philosophy and Conceptual Art (Oxford University Press, 2007). The silkscreened folder, stamped by Art & Language and numbered in an edition of 250, contains two collections of texts. The first is a grommeted cardstock text by Art & Language (Mel Ramsden, Michael Baldwin, and Charles Harrison). The second collects a forward by Stephanie Cristello, Director of Programming at EXPO CHICAGO, that traces the exhibition at the Philippe Méaille Collection—Château de Montsoreau in France; an essay by Jill Silverman van Coenegrachts on the history and legacy of the collective in Chicago; and an essay by Matthew Jesse Jackson, entitled "If You Were Art & Language, You'd be A Fucking Decent Contemporary Artist," originally published by MACBA in Barcelona.
