In Praise of Julie Ault

Julie Ault has had a rich career as an artist, writer, and curator, and has made tremendous contributions to cultural life in New York City and beyond. On the occasion of its 2016 benefit, which honored Ault, Triple Canopy invited a number of writers, artists, and friends respond to the following prompt, inspired by Ault’s work: “The Internet has made the tracing of relationships between disparate cultural materials into a seemingly everyday maneuver. Which strategies might now be effective in rewriting dominant historical narratives, whether despite or because of the proliferation of new technologies?” The booklet published by Triple Canopy includes responses by thirty-five contributors, who draw on their collaborations or affinities with Ault. The pamphlet features cover art by Wolfgang Tillmans and a biography by Alejandro Cesarco.
