Specific Object Publication of the Year Award

Materializing Six Years: Lucy R. Lippard and the Emergence of Conceptual Art, which was recently judged best New York thematic exhibition by AICA-USA members, has received the Specific Object 2012 Publication of the Year Award for its catalogue.

Edited by Catherine Morris, Curator of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum, and independent scholar Vincent Bonin, Materializing Six Years reconsiders Lippard's methodologies for presenting and writing about artworks that were increasingly experimental in conception and materials.

Designed by Margarita Encomienda and published by MIT Press and the Brooklyn Museum, the book also includes a preface by Lippard and a chapter on Lippard’s activism by Julia Bryan-Wilson. 

Headquartered in New York, AICA-USA's membership comprises over 400 critics, curators, scholars, and art historians working throughout the United States.
