Adrian Piper, A RetrospectiveBook - 1999
This retrospective catalogue focuses on a key aspect of Adrian Piper's work: the relationship between its aesthetic form and its political and emotional message. Over the past thirty years, Piper has melded the visual devices of photo-conceptualism with the body-oriented concerns of minimalist sculpture and performance. Ultimately, this book demonstrates that a groundbreaking connection exists between form and content in Piper's work -- a connection that allows her moving social commentary on racism and sexism to be more deeply felt by the viewer. Encompassing all of the areas of her artistic output from 1965 through 2000, this is the most comprehensive collection to date of Adrian Piper's work.
