About this title

Synopsis:

Destined to become the authoritative text on Eliasson as well as a lasting resource on contemporary installation art.

In the work of Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson, the sun can rise inside a museum and rainbows can appear indoors. His immersive installations explore the intersection of nature and artifice, transforming ordinary spaces into sites of wonder and spectacle. From kaleidoscopes to waterfalls to mirrored passageways, the projects invite the viewer's active participation while posing provocative questions about the workings of human perception.

This catalogue is published in association with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and accompanies a major touring exhibition. More than two hundred color reproductions offer a rich visual survey of Eliasson's most significant works from 1990 to the present, while a series of original essays investigate the complex origins and implications of his practice, from the legacy of the Light and Space movement to the artist's recent forays into architectural design. 200+ color illustrations.

About the Author:

Edited by Madeleine Grynsztejn, Senior Curator of Painting and Sculpture at SFMOMA, the publication features contributions by Mieke Bal, Klaus Biesenbach and Roxana Marcoci, Daniel Birnbaum, Olafur Eliasson and Robert Irwin, Pamela M. Lee, and Henry Urbach.

Store Description

The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
