Published on the occasion of the 1997 exhibition Jeff Wall at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art. Fine in Fine dust jacket. From the publisher: "First and foremost, Canadian artist Jeff Wall is a storyteller. His large-scale cibachromes, often staged with actors on elaborate, cinematic sets, show intricate, densely layered scenarios investigating the entangled realities of life and culture at the end of the century. His works invite the viewer to examine them in detail, to discern surreal and melodramatic plots, to loose himself in the perplexing vortex of carefully constructed details. Wall draws on the narrative strategies of 19th-century painting, advertising's art of seduction, cinema's dramatic use of props and gestures to tell his own unique, sometimes mysterious stories. this comprehensive monograph [also] contains a new series of black and white photographs. They herald a new development in Wall's work, an ironic and unsettling play with the conventions of documentary photography." Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 112270

About this title


This text examines 20 years of work by Canadian artist, Jeff Wall, whose constructed photographs of suburban landscapes and dramatic mise-en-scene explore the topography of everyday relations. He combines the scale and composition of the old masters with technology, to create huge transparencies which are exhibited on lightboxes. The book not only surveys his entire career to date, but also celebrates Wall's writings. Wall is to be the subject of surveys at MOCA, Chicago; Whitechapel, London; and Jeu de Paume, paris in 1995/1996. The book is part of a series of studies of important artists of the late-20th century. Each title offers a comprehensive survey of the artist's work, providing analyses and multiple perspectives on contemporary art and its inspiration.
