TOM BURR: ANTHOLOGY -- WRITINGS, 1991-2015. Ed. by Florence Derieux. FRAC {Fonds Regional d'Art Contemporarin} Champagne-Ardenne, Reims, 2015. Published in association with Sternberg Press, Berlin.

Publisher's description: Since the late 1980s, New York-based conceptual artist Tom Burr (b. 1963) has been using appropriation strategies in his photographic and sculptural works and writings. Thirty-seven texts -- works, poems, autobiographical texts and portraits -- have been compiled in this extensive anthology accompanying the artist's survey exhibition at the FRAC in France. Written over a period of 24 years and presented chronologically, it enables us to fully appreciate the conceptual and visual coherence and richness of Burr's writings. The artist's personal writings reveal the conceptual and aesthetic sources in his oeuvre. As did Robert Smithson's, Burr's art praxis extends into the field of writing, and vice versa. Art and language cannot be dissociated from each other -- at times, the text precedes and anticipates the work; at others, it emanates and results from it; in most instances, it is an integral part of it. Burr's work is collected by MOCA, LA; The Israel Museum; NY Public Library; and more, with past exhibitions at Hammer Museum, LA; Sculpture Center, NY; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, NY.
