Product Description

A publication that both documents and departs from the 2009 exhibition of the same name. Guest curated by Sandra Skurvida Custom Car Commandos reflects the perceptions of the American industrial moment by interrelating the auto industry and the image industry. Kenneth Anger’s short film Kustom Kar Kommandos of 1965 provided an historical touchstone for the exhibition, invoking relationships between cars, power, dominance, and desire. The publication has two texts, the first by Jan Ake Granath with footnotes by Liam Gillick, and a curatorial essay by Sandra Skurvida, entitled “Image Drives.”
