    Compiled 30 years after Group Material's inception Show and Tell is an incredibly insightful view into the collective's often times tumultuous existence practice and processThe book provides a chronicle of exhibitions personal correspondence and essays from GM's core artists Julie Ault Tim Rollins and Doug Ashford along with a streaming narrative of the collective's history up to its permanent hiatus and hundreds of photographs from their archive and exhibitions The book moves through nearly 20 years of activity at a pace that accurately reflects the internal and external pressures weighing on the group with its formative years unfolded gradually through scans of meeting agendas and minutes and its latter years presented as a relentless stream of exhibition after exhibition after exhibitionAlthough the book doesn't offer any larger framing essays by critics theorists or the like it does something else that is arguably important Show and Tell gives the reader a view of working collectively that is at times incredibly intimate and at other times necessarily distancedWhile texts such as Collectivism after Modernism The Art of Social Imagination after 1945 or even Conversation Pieces Community and Communication in Modern Art help to frame a theoretically based discussion around the idea of collaboration and socially engaged art practice Show and Tell gives the reader a frontline account of just thatThis is an excellent read for artists community organizers or educators interested in collaborative practice
