Charles LeDray: workworkworkworkwork
Foreword by Jill Medvedow, Text by James Lingwood, Jen Mergel and Adam D. Weinberg
About This Book
The most comprehensive review of a remarkable contemporary artist’s work in an extraordinary package designed by Sagmeister, Inc. Since the early 1990s, New York–based artist Charles LeDray has become known for his miniaturized sculptures of hand-stitched clothing, carved human bone, and thimble-sized ceramics. Their intimate scale and materials poignantly evoke allusions to childhood memory, gender and class stereotypes, and wonder in the everyday. This volume accompanies a mid-career survey exhibition organized by Jen Mergel for the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston.
