Contribution by Dave Hickey and David H. Weinberg, Edited by Louise Neri and Josiah McElheny
The first major monograph on MacArthur "Genius Grant" recipient Josiah McElheny. McElheny is a unique figure among artists of his generation: his primary medium is glass. Over the last 15 years he has created an extraordinary body of work exploring the relationship between art, history, and narrative. Known for his room-size installations of glass sculptures, the artist’s work is as rich visually as it is conceptually. With contributions by some of the most important writers and scholars today(including curator and writer Louise Neri, art critic Dave Hickey, curator Helen Molesworth, and cosmologist David Weinberg) this is the most comprehensive consideration of the artist’s work to date.
