Renaissance Society Jessica Stockholder: The Renaissance Society

Availability: In stock

Approaching architectural space and scale with the formal inventiveness and speed common to gestural abstract painting, Stockholder took the art world by storm in the late 80's. The first half of the catalog chronicles Stockholder's installations from 1983-1991 in 35 beautiful color plates. Accompanying the reproductions are short descriptions, authored by the artist, addressing the architectural and material choices of each installation. The second half of the catalogue contains John Miller's essay "Formalism and Its Other", which keenly places Stockholder's activity somewhere between the rigorous formalism of Clement Greenberg's critical writing and the liberating potential of Allan Kaprow's Happenings.
