The Members Library presents
Joseph Grigely 
The Gregory Battcock Archive, 2009–15

Gregory Battcock (1937–80, US) was a New York–based artist who gave up his practice as a painter to become an art critic. He wrote on Minimalism, Conceptual Art, video art, and performance, and generally championed artists pushing the boundaries and definitions of contemporary art. In 1992, Joseph Grigely was exploring the recently abandoned facilities of a storage company in the same building as his studio when he found Battcock’s archive of manuscripts, photographs, and correspondence strewn throughout the space. After making copies of some of the material, he donated a bulk of the collection to the Archives of American Art. Grigely has since researched and worked with the archive in various ways over the years.

A publication entitled Oceans of Love: The Uncontainable Gregory Battcock is the first book to present a selection of Gregory Battcock’s prefaces and essays (from MinimalismIdea ArtWhy Art?, and other books), as well as columns published in underground newspapers in the 1970s. 

The publication is co-published with Verlag Walther König, Printed Matter, New York and Kunstverein in Hamburg. The exhibition is co-produced with Kunstverein in Hamburg
