Descripción

A 1 3/8 inch thick book with pages un-numbered. Red cloth. No defects noted. Dust jacket has 1 1/2 inch tear at top and light wear to edges and corners. Andres Serrano is one of America's most mythologized contemporary artists. To many he's the man responsible for Piss Christ, and a national scandal over government funding of controversial art. For those who look beyond the headlines he's a highly accomplished and ever evolving photographic artist showing us the ordinary in extraordinary ways. With his post Piss Christ series Nomads he made studio portraits of New York's ethnic homeless and juxtaposed them with members of the Ku Klux Klan. In the Morgue series he dissected violent death and found the human thread on the coroner's slab, while A History of Sex explored the human mating urge in its infinite variety. He considers America his greatest achievement. Three years of work produced over one hundred 50 by 60 inch photographic portraits representing the cultural diversity of this immigrant county, as filtered through the critical lens of Serrano. There are celebrities: Arthur Miller, Snoop Dogg, Anna Nicole Smith, B.B. King, Vanessa del Rio, and ordinary citizens: a pimp, a boy scout, a Muslim housewife, a doctor, a Russian Orthodox bishop. America is intimate, honest and demanding response, like all Serrano's work. The second half of this big volume, Other Work, is a retrospective of Serrano's previous photographic series. Together these two impressive halves create the whole of Andres Serrano's artistic ocuvre. In 1959 US Senator Jesse Helms accused Andres Serrano of taunting the American people. America and Other Work is the perfect rebuttal. Contents: America, The Interprestation of Dreams, A History of Sex, The Morgue, Objects of Desire, Nomads, The Klan, The Church, Budapest, Istanbul, Bodily Fluids, Immersions, Early Works, and 9.11.01. Includes Biography and selected Bibliography. Very large heavy book (9 lbs.shipping weight) that will incur additional charges for Priiority Shipping to most locations. Size: 11 1/2" x 15".
