With Everything but the Monkey Head: Theorizing Art’s Untheorizable Practices is a major ICI project centered on the burgeoning field of studio-based research in the visual arts. This project is a collaboration with nine diverse researchers who have participated in some sort of visual research at the ICI during the last 5 years; a set of specially selected interlocutors whose questions will help construct and strengthen the ideas central to each researcher’s project; and the curious spectators who have always enriched ICI projects with their thoughtful discussion and debate during public exchanges.
Each iteration of With Everything but the Monkey Head will be accompanied by a unique laboratory workbook created by the researcher over the course of their short residency. Part journal, workbook, recipe book, and itinerary, this chronicle will provide a snapshot of the project at each stage of its unfolding.
