Project Series: Ian Wilson
April 6th, 2021

Fillip is pleased to participate in the live printing and launch of Project Series: Ian Wilson by Ben Kinmont.

Published by Antinomian Press, Project Series: Ian Wilson documents a never before released conversation between publisher Ben Kinmont and artist Ian Wilson recorded October 19, 1997. In the interview, Wilson talks about the origin of his Discussion pieces and the work of Robert Barry, Joseph Kosuth, and Lawrence Weiner, the exhibitions of Seth Siegelaub, and the writings of Lucy Lippard.

Project Series: Ian Wilson will be printed and assembled live, in real time, across several timezones by eight participating organizations. The printing event will be followed by a discussion between Kinmont and MoMA Drawings and Prints curator Christophe Cherix.

Previous publications in Project Series include those with Lee Lozano (1998), Chris D’Arcangelo (2005), and Seth Siegelaub (2016).

About the Authors

Ian Wilson (1940–2020) was a pioneer of conceptual art. He started his artistic career In new York in the early 1960s, and by the late 60s, he began to present spoken language as his artistic medium. Wilson’s work has been presented worldwide including seminal exhibitions of conceptual art such as 557,087 at the Seattle Art Museum Pavilion in Seattle, organized by Lucy Lippard in 1969; Information at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1970; and many others. Wilson’s major solo exhibition was organized by the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, together with MACBA in Barcelona and MAMCO in Geneva, in 2008. Tate Modern hosted the last public Discussion with the artist in May 2017. 

Ben Kinmont is an artist, publisher, and antiquarian bookseller living in Sebastopol, California. His work is concerned with the value structures surrounding an art practice and what happens when that practice is displaced into a non-art space. Since 1988 his work has been project-based with an interest in archiving and blurring the boundaries between artistic production, publishing, and curatorial practices. Exhibitions include those at Air de Paris, MAXXI (Rome), Whitney Biennial 2014, ICA (London), Kadist Art Foundation (Paris & San Francisco), the 25th International Biennial of Graphic Arts (Ljubljana), Documenta 11 (Kassel), the Pompidou, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, a traveling survey show of Kinmont’s work entitled “Prospectus” (Amsterdam, Paris, New York, and San Francisco), and others. He is the founder of the Antinomian Press, a publishing enterprise which supports project art and ephemera.
