THEASTER GATES. Carol Becker et al. Phaidon Press Limited, London, 2015. Contemporary Artists. 160 pp. with 170 ills. (146 col.). 29 x 25 cm. ISBN 9780714868806 In English.
Publisher's description: Theaster Gates (born Chicago, 1973, where he lives and works) has developed an expanded artistic practice that includes space development, object making, performance and critical engagement with many publics. Gates transforms spaces, institutions, traditions, and perceptions. His training as an urban planner and sculptor, and subsequent time spent studying clay, has given him keen awareness of the poetics of production and systems of organizing. Playing with these poetic and systematic interests, Gates has assembled gospel choirs, formed temporary unions, and used systems of mass production as a way of underscoring the need that industry has for the body.
