American Narrative Story Art. 1967-1977 D

This catalogue accompanies a precedent-setting exhibition of 43 artists’ work – including Laurie Andersen, John Baldessari, Robert Cumming, Vernon Fisher, Duane Michals, and William Wiley – who have been leading a new 1970s interest in including explicit narrative structures in their work.

Includes essays by Mark Freidus, Paul Schimmel and Alan Sondheim; documentation on the artists’ careers; and a floppy audio record with sound work by Terry Allen, Laurie Anderson, Eleanor Antin, Ed McGowin, and Dennis Oppenheim.D
