Overview

Describing Conceptual artist and musician Stephen Prina's work in 2004, the Harvard Gazette wrote, "Prina's artwork is full of unsuspected surprises, secret compartments that pop open to release compressed bundles of meaning or coiling strands of narrative." His work at the 2008 Whitney Biennial, for example, was conceived as "a traveling spectacle—a mini-Broadway-musical-on-the-road or circus," according to the artist. This concise retrospective volume presents work from 1979 to 2008, as well as installation views of Prina's recent one-person exhibition at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden in Germany.
Born 1954 in Galesburg, Illinois, Stephen Prina divides his time between Los Angeles and Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he is a professor at Harvard University. A member of the band Red Krayola and a solo performer, Prina is represented in New York by Friedrich Petzel Gallery.
