Highlights a provocative selection of works from the collection of contemporary art assembled over the past decade by American television producer and writer Tom Patchett, documenting some 180 paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photographs and prints produced chiefly in the 1980's and 90s by Baldessari, Beuys, Gober, Kelley, Kippenberger, Levine, Maciunas, Oppenheim, Pettibon, Ruscha, Sherman, Tansey, Warhol and more than 30 other predominantly American artists. An interview with Patchett and four critical essays accompany fine illustrations and concise discussions of the featured works, many of which embody ironic, often darkly nuanced commentaries on conventional social and aesthetic values.
