About this Item

Neuware - The first major monograph on the rich and varied art of Matt Mullican. For more than three decades, Matt Mullican has created a complex body of work concerned with systems of knowledge, meaning, language, and signification. Mullican has always been concerned with the relationship between perception and reality, between the ability to see something and the ability to represent it. Mullican's oeuvre, which takes form as drawing, collage, video, sculpture, performance, and installation, confronts the nature of subjective understanding, rationality, and cognition - in essence proposing a 'picture' of the world. This first major monograph on Mullican - being published following tremendous renewed interest in the artist's important work by a group of younger artists and curators - considers his work in-depth. Lynne Cooke, chief curator at the Reina Sofia in Madrid, and Hal Foster, art historian, address various aspects of Mullican's multidisciplinary practice. A roundtable discussion between Conceptual artist John Baldessari and critic and curator Hans Ulrich-Obrist completes this comprehensive survey with a discussion on the nature of creativity. 271 pp. Englisch.

About this title

Synopsis:

The first major monograph on the rich and varied art of Matt Mullican.
 
Over the last four decades, Matt Mullican has created a complex body of work concerned with systems of knowledge, meaning, language, and signification. His work takes form as drawing, collage, video, sculpture, performance, and installation, but Mullican is perhaps best known for his performances: these take place under hypnosis, allowing the artist to treat his own psyche as yet another medium. The drawings Mullican makes in this state--as an alter ego he refers to as "that person" --recall Surrealist experiments with automatic writing. In recent years, interest has surged in Mullican's work as younger artists and curators have rediscovered him.

This first major monograph on the artist, a group of renowned art world figures considers the expanse of Mullican's art--from the "bulletin boards" that combine notes, sketches, and archival photographs to the graphic language used to illustrate his idiosyncratic cosmology. Curator Lynne Cooke and art historian Hal Foster address various aspects of Mullican's multidisciplinary practice, while a roundtable conversation between Mullican, Conceptual artist John Baldessari, and curator Ulrich Wilmes completes this comprehensive survey. The in-depth discussion investigates Mullican's early days as a student--when Baldessari was his professor--and the development of his signature works.
