Product Description

Collecting documentation of Liam Gillick’s (born 1964) artworks, graphics, films and exhibitions since 2008, this substantial volume also features an extensive body of writings by the British-born, New York–based artist, who has also been a prolific theorist of contemporary art.

Rising to prominence with his inclusion in the 1996 exhibition Traffic, which introduced the concept of relational aesthetics, Gillick has since worked at the forefront of conceptual art by interrogating both the social forces of economics and technology and the attempts by artists to engage with these processes, notably through his visual commentary on American minimalism and its absorption by corporate architecture. With 530 color illustrations, the book is an ample survey of Gillick’s recent work, offering a fresh insight into his oeuvre.
