Overview

Internationally acclaimed Swiss artist John Armleder fuses genres and media; he borrows influences from modernist art, modern design, constructivism, art deco, minimalism, op art, music, and film. The resulting images, sculptures, and installations often involve the viewer's active participation; his art is as much experienced as it is viewed. This comprehensive book charts Armleder's career with an interview, an analytical retrospective text, and 150 images, which presents the artist's eclectic output from his early work to his current projects. Armleder's work is widely exhibited in international galleries and museums. He recently curated the exhibition "None of the Above" (winter 2004-05) at the Swiss Institute of Contemporary Art in New York. A solo exhibition of his work opened in May 2005 at the Cosmic Galerie in Paris.
