Due date: October 2018. See also the companion volume (Worldwide 80694). Publisher's description: Famous for his performances 'The Death of James Lee Byars' and 'The Perfect Smile,' and for sculptural works that have been described as 'austere and rococo, understated and flamboyant,' James Lee Byars (1932-1997) was a legend in his lifetime and an enduringly influential artist since his death at the age of 65. His preferred materials were characterized by strong colors--black, red, gold, pink--and by a sensuous luxuriance, as in his use of folded Japanese paper or silk. This second volume of the two-volume catalogue accompanying the first major posthumous survey on Byars in the US constitutes the catalogue "proper" (the first volume being conceived as a sourcebook), and includes images of works well beyond the scope of the show. Through a selection of more than 125 sculptures, costumes, performable paper works, films, ink paintings, correspondence, ephemera, live performances and documents, the catalogue represents the full scope of the artist's work.
