Description

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.show more
