Dematerialised: Jack Wendler Gallery, 1971 to 1974

Smith, Donald and Gleadowe, Teresa (2009) Dematerialised: Jack Wendler Gallery, 1971 to 1974. [Show/Exhibition]

Type of Research: Show/Exhibition
Creators: Smith, Donald and Gleadowe, Teresa

This Exhibition and related publication was the product of a collaboration between Donald Smith and Teresa Gleadowe, former Director of the MA Curating course at the Royal College of Art.

The show concerned the previously unpublished collection and archive of influential collector and owner of Art Monthly magazine, Jack Wendler, who opened a small gallery in London in 1971 showing “new art” introducing American and European artists to the UK. Artists in the show included: Marcel Broodthaers, Daniel Buren, Lawrence Weiner, David Askevold, Peter Downsbrough, Robert Barry, John Baldessari.

The show consisted of original artworks, letters and instructions from the artists, and publications. In presenting the work some material was set out as a reading/research facility. The show included a facsimile copy of Jack Wendler and Seth Seiglaub's influential ‘Xerox Book’, so that the audience could experience this important document, as well as view the original artefact in a vitrine. This accessibility through facsimile was used throughout the exhibition to promote a pedagogic notion of exhibition as teaching resource. The exhibition was part of an ongoing enquiry into alternative and sometimes short lived exhibiting spaces and their curators, gallerists, and collectors
