OP HELTER SKELTER: L.A. ART IN THE 1990S. Paul Schimmel et al. Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, 1992. 182 pp. with 151 ills. (77 col.). 30 x 23 cm. LC 91-44045 ISBN 0914357271 In English.
Showcasing provocative paintings, sculptural assemblages, installations and mixed-media pieces along with disquieting poems and stories, this catalogue surveys the work of 26 Los Angeles artists and writers (including Chris Burden, Llyn Foulkes, Mike Kelley and Charles Ray) linked by the pessimistic vision of contemporary American culture expressed in their images of anonymous aggression, psychological alienation, and social and ecological chaos. Two essays describe the apocalyptic character of the featured works in the context of the consumer-driven urban culture of Southern California while relating the cynicism of contemporary art to the traditions of Pop art and Minimalism.
