Published to accompany the 2008 Deutsche Guggenheim survey curated by American artist Collier Schorr, Freeway Balconies unfolds more as an artist's book than a straightforward exhibition catalogue. Borrowing from Allen Ginsberg, the title refers to the meeting place of spectacle and voyeurism in American culture--expressed here through Schorr's idiosyncratic mix of 19 emerging and established artists, including Sharon Hayes, Bruce Nauman, Francesca Woodman, Rashawn Griffin and Richard Prince, among others. Her choices, arranged around selections of her own work, reveal her probing interest in slippages of identity and identification, cultural memory and forgetting and the ways in which artistic action and production engage these issues.

New in publisher's shrink wrap. From the publisher: "At the invitation of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, acclaimed American artist Collier Schorr (b1963), whose multimedia practice explores appropriated identities and performance, has created a group exhibition that is at once a self-portrait and a riveting display of some of the most vital trends in contemporary U.S.-based art. The exhibition's title, Freeway Balconies, borrowed from 1960s poet laureate Allen Ginsberg in a move that is both reverential and mischievous, refers to the meeting place of spectacle and voyeurism in American culture. For Freeway Balconies, Schorr gathers an idiosyncratic mix of nineteen emerging and established artists, juxtaposing their works in complementary to antagonistic relationships. Freeway Balconies shuttles between performance art and the cult of Hollywood, between the popular and the alternative. To accompany Freeway Balconies, Schorr has designed a catalogue that unfolds as an artist's book rather than a straightforward exhibition record. Like her recent vitrines that bring together documents, relics, photographs, books, and other pieces of reified information, the catalogue serves as a field guide to Schorr's unconventional thought process.".
