do it: the compendium

Written by Sam Bontempo

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of Hans Ulrich Obrist’s on-going exhibition, do it: the compendium is the first comprehensive publication of the evolution of an idea that questions new innovations in curatorial practice and artistic production. Not only does the compendium continually trace the infinite conversation that is do it through essays conceptualizing the exhibition and documentation of its progress, but it also gives readers an opportunity to take their own journey by carrying out the instructions written by over 300 artists.

Included are projects by renowned artists such as Yoko Ono’s Wish Tree, Lucy R. Lippard’s inspiring action in changing the world, and Ai Weiwei’s instructions on to block a surveillance camera. For only $35 you can own an eclectic array of artwork and history compiled in do it: the compendium.
