Doug Ashford’s principle visual practice from 1982 to 1996 was the multi-form practice of Group Material. His work has been recently compiled in the book "Show and Tell: A Chronicle of Group Material" (Four Corners Books, 2010). Since 1996 he has continued to produce paintings, essays and collaborative projects that engage sociality with artistic form. His most recent public effort ended in the project "Who Cares" (Creative Time, 2006), a book built from a series of conversations between Ashford and other cultural practitioners on public expression, ethics and beauty.
Doug Ashford will direct a two-week course from 17 to 29 August 2015.
