More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In 1917, Marcel Duchamp transformed a urinal into a work of art simply by moving it from a men's room to an art gallery. Here, Lawler uses her own work to investigate how placement changes our understanding of art. Documenting the context of various artworks or constructing "arrangements" of others' art, Lawler operates within a conceptual framework rooted within Postmodernism. Whether taken at exhibitions, in collectors' homes, or in museum storage, her photographs offer new perspectives on the works of masters from Edgar Degas to Jackson Pollock and Cindy Sherman. Lawler, an insider to New York City's Eighties art scene, was included in the Whitney Biennial 2000 testimony to her continued importance. This first monograph compiles work from the past 20 years and was edited under her guidance. In addition to large color reproductions, the book offers a short introductory essay by Johannes Meinhardt and an interview with the artist by Douglas Crimp. Recommended for all libraries with collections in contemporary art. D'Arcy Curwen, Bryn Mawr Coll., PA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
