"Twice Untitled and Other Pictures," published in conjunction with Lawler's first major museum exhibition in the United States, organized by the Wexner Center for the Arts. With essays by art historian and political theorist Rosalyn Deutsche and curators Ann Goldstein and Helen Molesworth.
Edited by Marc Blondeau and Philippe Davet.
From an exhibition of Degas' materpieces to an Andy Warhol installation, this book invites you to discover Louise Lawler's unique vision of modern and contemporary art. Lawler is fascinated by what "happens" to the art object after it leaves the artist's studio - where it goes, how it's displayed, how it's valued, what it means. In a Lawler photograph taken in a private home, the furnishings and objects surrounding the art are given as much attention as the art; in a museum, the view out of a window next to the artwork; in an auction house, the label identifying the artwork. Her striking and provocative photographs show us how the environment that surrounds it affects our perception of art and how it in turn affects all aspects of that environment.
