Publisher’s Description:

Photographer Jason Fulford’s Mushroom Collection project began with a set of photographs of wild mushrooms found at a flea market. These anonymous photographs inspired Fulford to create his own collection of photographs, publications, sculptures and performances, culminating in a final exhibition at the Minneapolis Institute of Art and this accompanying catalogue. In the exhibition, the original found photographs are displayed alongside Fulford’s own photographs and videos. The show continues through the museum’s other galleries, where Fulford spread additional mushrooms to interact with works in the permanent collection. In a similar spirit, the catalogue invites readers to curate interventions with works from the MIA’s permanent collection by providing color reproductions of Fulford’s photographs--bound into the book on perforated stamp sheets--that can be affixed on the following pages according to the reader’s preference.
