OP ABOUT PLACE: RECENT ART OF THE AMERICAS. Madeleine Grynsztejn and Dave Hickey. Art Institute of Chicago, 1995. 76th American Exhibition. 136 pp. with 94 ills. (53 col.). 31 x 24 cm. ISBN 086559144X In English.
Exploring highly diverse concepts of "place" in contemporary art through a presentation of recent paintings, installations, sculptures, photographs and performance pieces by Vija Celmins, Eugenio Dittborn, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Ann Hamilton, Guillermo Kuitca, Brice Marden, Barbara Steinman, Jeff Wall and eight other noted artists from North and South America, this catalogue includes a theoretical discussion of the temporal and geographical dimensions of place, a lengthy essay examining in detail the personal, social, political and aesthetic concerns of the featured artists, and good reproductions of works that range from wheeled cubicles designed as highly condensed living units and sculptures composed of luggage tags or airline utensils to paintings of a spider's web and the night sky and an installation of catacomb-like niches displaying shoes once worn by Colombian women who have been "disappeared."
