Corrected Slogans represents a vital discourse on conceptual practices in contemporary art and poetry. The book is the fourth and final installment of the multi-part project , which was conceived as Triple Canopy’s contribution to “Postscript: Writing after Conceptual Art,” an exhibition organized by the .
Each “act” of Corrected Slogans—dispersed as they are between Triple Canopy’s home in Brooklyn, the exhibition in Denver, the Web, and print—is integral to the same dynamic process; the project as a whole represents Triple Canopy’s ongoing attempt to define an expanded field of publication. Corrected Slogans features annotated transcripts of public conversations between some of the most innovative artists and poets working today. The symposium “Poems for America” asked how conceptual strategies of writing have transformed conventional notions of expression. “Automatic Reading,” a seminar-style roundtable, focused on reading as a creative practice, and the book as a material object and social signifier. Additionally, the book includes new essays, artworks, and poetry. More than merely documenting discussions, Corrected Slogans activates the book as a site of creative production, enacting an expanded notion of publishing as a mode of critical inquiry.
