Book - 2014
Rate this:
Known for her early repetitions of the work of her contemporaries including Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, James Rosenquist and Andy Warhol, Elaine Sturtevant (1924-2014) turned the visual logic of Pop art back on itself, using Duchamp's model of the readymade to probe uncomfortably at the workings of art history in real time. Yet the aspect of her work that allowed her to be described as the one artist who can't be copied--her chameleon-like embrace of other artists' art--is also what has allowed her to be largely overlooked in the history of postwar American art. Featuring previously unpublished drawings and sketches from the artists archive, the book includes an essay by the exhibition curator that provides a comprehensive overview of the artist's practice while situating it more concretely within American culture.
