The ICA in Philadelphia has launched a new exciting initiative with Primary Information called EXCURSUS IV: Primary Information. 

Leading up to ICA’s 50th anniversary in fall 2013, Primary Information has been invited to delve into our archive and to reflect on its contemporary potential. Through an engagement with ICA’s own critical history of publishing, Primary Information’s Excursus will unfold over the coming weeks with a series of events in the installation and interventions on the Excursus website, including providing access to a selection of out-of-print ICA exhibition catalogues. 

The first post features the catalogue for Video Art, exhibited at the ICA on January 17-February 28, 1975. The exhibition featured work by Vito Acconci, Ant Farm, Eleanor Antin, John Baldessari, Robert Morris, Bill Viola, Bruce Nauman, and many others. The catalogue features essays by David Antin, Lizzie Borden, Jack Burnham, and John McHale.
