Overview

Le Magasin, the National Contemporary Art Center of Grenoble, was an early and excellent model of the rehabilitation of an abandoned industrial site for contemporary art. It is now emerging from a secondary period of renovation, and this book celebrates its renewal, its history and its ongoing role in expanding the domain of curatorial experimentation. Among those projects presented here, many of which have never before been published, are works from globally renowned artists including Vito Acconci, John Baldessari, Bernd & Hilla Becher, Joseph Beuys, Alighiero Boetti, Barbara Kruger, Thomas Ruff and Sol Le Witt. Le Magasin 1986-2006 is not only an overview of a seminal institution and a wide-ranging reference book on contemporary art, but also a meditation on the evolution of the relationships between the institution and the artist.
