Manual, a journal about art and its making. Assemblage. The sixth issue. An assemblage is both an act and a result-the work of gathering and conjoining as well as the state of having been gathered and conjoined. This issue of Manual pieces together works made out of practical necessity and others that marry dazzling embellishments for optimal effect, examining how history (or one version of it) was (and is) pastiched from disparate sources, how fashionable textile samples were collected, and more (always more). An assembly of assemblages, an assortment of intended and unintended interrelationships, Manual issue six is the sum of its parts and the parts themselves, a dynamic gathering of artists and authors, objects and interpretations, mash-ups and remixes, lemons and lightbulbs, vibrantly inter-animating each other.
Softcover, 68 pages. Published 2016 by the RISD Museum. Manual 6 (Assemblage) contributors include Eric Anderson, Taylor Elyse Anderson, Bob Dilworth, Christina Hemauer, Roman Keller, Mariani Lefas-Tetenes, Simone Leigh, Leora Maltz-Leca, Ingrid A. Neuman, Tara Nummedal, Todd Oldham, and Britany Salsbury.
