CADENCES: ICON AND ABSTRACTION IN CONTEXT. Gary Sangster et al. New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, 1991. 112 pp. with 39 ills. (9 col.). 23 x 16 cm. LC 90-50873 ISBN 091555772X In English.
Accompanying an exhibition of diverse abstract works (chiefly three-dimensional objects and installations) by nine emerging artists including Charles Ray, Eva Schlegel and Terry Adkins, this catalogue explores contemporary abstractions as expressions of specific social and historical ideas rather than as purely formal constructions. Includes an introductory essay examining cultural references in the works of the featured artists, a theoretical discussion of the modes of meaning in abstraction, and an analysis of the political dimensions of utopian works of the 1920s by Lissitzky, Mondrian and Strzeminski.
