Rules Series, 1993




Angela Bulloch's 1993 solo exhibition with Esther Schipper marked the beginning of one of her most important body of work: the Rules Series.


The Rules Series’ (1993–ongoing) is a conceptual work consisting of a collection of found rules that intentionally avoids the deadpan rigor of old-school Conceptual Art. Sources and behavioral topics for the rules collection so far include a stripper bar, a video game parlor, the General Standing Orders of the House of Commons, a Russian Modelling School, neighborhood tips in case of riots in Santa Monica, Data Protection Principles and back jeans pocket-handkerchief color codes.
