More About This Book

Overview

"Plop: Recent projects of the Public Art Fund features projects by forty-six internationally acclaimed artists whose temporary installations were made possible by the Public Art Fund, one of the most innovative presenters of contemporary art in America. Through an in-depth account of each of these memorable projects, it examines the ways in which artists as diverse as Rachel Whiteread and Takashi Murakami, Christian Boltanski and Pipilotti Rist, and Andrea Zittel and Vik Muniz have created a dynamic experience of contemporary art. From Paul Pfeiffer's Orpheus Descending, a video work documenting the brief life-cycle of a flock of chickens, shown in the World Trade Center and World Financial Center, to Josiah McElheny's The Metal Party, an elaborate reconstruction of an event held at the Bauhaus in 1929, these projects address a multitude of issues related to urban living, site-specificity, and the impact of public art on both casual passersby and local communities." For artists, creating work outside the museum or gallery's white box is both a challenging and a rewarding experience, an opportunity to use the public realm for an evolution of their studio practice. This book sheds new light on a key aspect of contemporary art, while also creating a lasting pictorial record of installations on view for perhaps only a few weeks or months. Plop documents the vitality of a changing city and the evolution of what it means for art to be "public," providing a key reference work for everyone interested in public art and the international contemporary art scene.

    IS IT ART? YES, IT IS.

    If someone told you that there was an exhibition of plop art at your local museum, would you rush over to see it? Probably not. But, you should because plop art is some of the most exciting, innovative art to be found. The name 'plop art,' which is sometimes used in a pejorative manner, refers to public art that is not considered to have any relation to its surroundings. In other words, it's 'plopped' there. What a wonderful surprise that can be! Have you seen Jeff Koon's huge puppy made of flowering plants in Rockefeller Center? You can't help but smile. For a quarter of a century buildings, plazas, parks, and streets in New York City have been the recipients of amazing art installations, all thanks to the Public Art Fund, an organization that enthusiastically supports contemporary art. 'Plop: Recent Projects of the Public Art Fund' presents projects by 45 internationally acclaimed artists whose works now decorate New York City. Among the artists included are Vito Acconci, Louise Bourgeois, Martin Creed, Dan Graham, Kim Sooja, Jeff Koons, Mariko Mori, Takashi Murakami, Paul Pfeiffer, Brian Tolle, and many more. A discussion of the pros and cons involved in making contemporary art for the public is also found in this 256 page volume boasting 500 illustrations.
