Mel Bochner : Photographs and Not Photographs

description

Exhibition catalogue published in conjunction with show held in 2010. Edited by Jeffrey Fraenkel. Text by Mel Bochner and Jeffrey Weiss. "Mel Bochner (born 1940) coined some of Postminimalist and Conceptual art's most characteristic strategies--the gallery as subject, language as material, the photo documentation of works as the work itself, the appropriation of ephemeral materials by other artists--and directed those strategies towards a radical excavation of all that had been rendered peripheral to art's content. In the mid- to late 1960s, Bochner became deeply involved with photography, producing a groundbreaking group of photographs that hover tantalizingly between painting and photography. 'Mel Bochner: Photographs and Not Photographs' presents reproductions of these early works, as well as the artist's classic 1970 essay 'Misunderstandings (A Theory of Photography)' and a selection of wall drawings and paintiings. Bochner has collaborated closely on the design of this beautifully produced volume, the cover of which is made of sturdy plexiglas." -- publisher's statement.
