PRODUCT: Anne Collier
SIZE: 10.25” high x 10.5” wide
New York–based artist Anne Collier (b. 1970) creates seemingly straightforward images of pop-cultural objects that address both the practice and history of photography while simultaneously critiquing clichés and uncovering hidden truths. This volume, part of the MCA Monograph series, accompanies the first major solo, US exhibition of Collier’s work. Michael Darling, James W. Alsdorf Chief Curator at the MCA, surveys Collier’s photographs of the past decade to analyze their artistic influences and thematic connections; Chrissie Iles, Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art, examines the artist’s position within photographic and cinematic history; and novelist Kate Zambreno delves into identity and self-portraiture, collection, and obsession.
Foreword by Madeleine Grynsztejn. Text by Michael Darling, Chrissie Iles, and Kate Zambreno. 112 pages, copublished by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago with ARTBOOK|D.A.P.
The exhibition Anne Collier is presented at the MCA Nov 22, 2014–Mar 8, 2015. Learn more.
