Julie Ault, In Part. Writings, Galerie Daniel Buchholz, 2017

It's difficult to identify where an association of ideas or interests begins, and it is just as complicated to pinpoint ending. Chronology is not much help. A chronology can start or end anywhere. It can extend in either direction indefinitely, depending on the scope of its frame(s) of reference. Storyline. Lifeline. Timeline. History. All open to reformulation.

Reprinted in chronological sequence alongside a selection of full-length texts, this series of excerpts offers a timeline of Ault’s continuous artistic growth, longstanding political concerns and dynamic interpersonal affinities.

Beginning in the 1980s with texts written with her collaborators in Group Material, In Part highlights Ault’s shift from exhibition making in the mid-1990s to include publishing and writing. Ault’s dialogic practice extends to the present day through her sustained engagements and relationships with such artists as Corita Kent, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Nancy Spero, Martin Beck, David Wojnarowicz, Liberace and Martin Wong. Lucy R. Lippard contributes an introduction.

Julie Ault, Show & Tell: A Chronique of Group Material, Four Corners Books, 2010

This is the first monograph celebrating Group Material, the New York-based artists collaborative known for its socio-political art practice. Collated by former group members, the book charts the development, projects and contexts of the group’s activities, drawing heavily from the group's own archive and including original documents, photographs, drawings, correspondence, artefacts and texts. 45 projects from the group's lifetime (1979–1996) are represented through installation photography, original proposals, exhibition statements, press releases, and responses, while the emblematic exhibition project 'AIDS Timeline' is examined in detail, including in newly conducted interviews.

Julie Ault, Alternative Art New York, 1965–1985, University Of Minnesota Press, The Drawing Center, 2003

By the mid-1960s, New York's art establishment-its major museums and galleries-had ceased to reflect the city's diversity and had largely ignored the decade's social, political, and cultural ferment. In response, marginalized artists created an oppositional network of organizations, exhibit spaces, and cooperative galleries that both paralleled and challenged the status quo. This alternative art movement flourished for more than two decades, repositioning New York at the center of international contemporary art. Alternative Art New York brings together a diverse group of artists and critics to explore the origins and evolution of this diffuse and vibrant cultural scene from a variety of perspectives: political, philosophical, organizational, economic, and aesthetic.
Locating the movement within both the art world and its larger social and political context, these authors decipher the shifting configurations of cultural power in this period and the complex relationship between the mainstream and the marginal. With a unique, annotated chronology of the alternative art scene from 1965 to 1985, and illustrated with 150 images of key works, installations, and exhibits; reproductions of posters, communiqués, and other ephemera; and photographs of protests and meetings, this volume is an important work of contemporary art history and a valuable sourcebook that suggests the basis for the return of an artist-driven cultural economy.
