About this title


"Uncommon Sense" was an experimental program that employed unusual media (600 tons of crushed glass, a house frame, an MTA bus) and innovative spaces (the World Wide Web, a rodeo corral, T.V.'s Melrose Place) to develop relationships among artists, audiences, and institutions. This exhibition catalogue provides a valuable record of this groundbreaking collaboration and includes photographs by noted photographer Lyle Ashton Harris. Essays by Julie Lazar, Tom Finkelpearl, and Marita Sturken.

From Library Journal:

Designed to accompany the exhibition "Uncommon Sense," held earlier this year at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, this collection of essays does more than elucidate; it provokes. Six projects, many of them ongoing since the close of the show, question the nature of museums and the social boundaries they inadvertently create. Participants include Ann Carlson, Karen Finley, and the Cornerstone Theater Company. Successful as installations, these projects often operate through the direct interaction of people. They are fine examples of art as activism, but they also concern dialog, cooperation, and mutual learning, and they indeed bring people together beyond?but also within?museum walls. Similar in sentiment to Culture in Action: A Public Art Program of Sculpture Chicago (LJ 3/15/95), this book belongs in academic and public libraries with strong contemporary collections.?Susan M. Olcott, Columbus Coll. of Art & Design, Ohio
