About this Item

Neuware - One of the most innovative and influential artists of our time, Richard Prince can be variously described as a painter, photographer, sculptor and collector. His work makes use of an eclectic range of approaches to explore his fascination with Americana, pop culture, art, literature and language. This volume, published to accompany his 2008 exhibition at London's Serpentine Gallery, is envisioned as a continuation of Prince's major 2007 retrospective at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York--albeit in a smaller and more personal setting. Prince leads the book off with an essay that was first published in 'Art in America' in 1988. Entitled 'Bringing It All Back Home,' this text serves as the introduction for what is essentially an autonomous artist's book filled with photographs of his works and installations. An end section on different paper features additional texts and a list of exhibitions. 598 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9780847836499

About this title

Synopsis:

A look into Richard Prince’s private library and his influences, published on the occasion of an exhibition of the artist’s work at the Bibliotheque nationale de France, Paris.  Artist Richard Prince is renowned for appropriating icons that capture the American cultural zeitgeist, such as Marlboro cowboys, femme-fatale nurses, and muscle cars. Prince is also a bibliophile, collecting rare volumes published from 1949 to 1984 which include Naked Lunch, Jack Kerouac’s rolled manuscript for Big Sur, and editions of Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita in several languages. An exhibition at the Bibliotheque nationale de France, Paris, presents rare books selected by the artist from its collection alongside Prince’s artwork.
Richard Prince: American Prayer is an accompanying volume that offers a rare glimpse into Prince’s intellectual explorations, revealing the source material for many of his well-known series through the pairing of literary excerpts and complementary illustrations of artwork.
