Louise Lawler: Receptions | Author: Roxana Marcoci

Published in conjunction with a major survey of the artist Louise Lawler, this catalogue charts the creative practice of one of the most influential artists working in the fields of picture-making and institutional critique. Since the 1970s, Lawler has expanded from a feminist position upon the legacy of institutional critique initiated by an earlier generation of Conceptual artists. Engaging a variety of art-world positions, including that of artist, curator, fact-checker, publicist and photo editor, Lawler has distinguished herself as one of the most creative artists of our age.

The rich selection of plates comprehensively records the artist's practice to date and underscores the radical inventiveness of Lawler's practice. The performative nature of Lawler's practice is mirrored in the design of the book's dust jacket; when turned inside out, it features a signature Lawler picture as an 'adjusted to fit' poster. The book is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in late-20th and early-21st-century art.
