The first major monograph on the rich and varied art of Matt Mullican. For more than three decades, Matt Mullican has created a complex body of work concerned with systems of knowledge, meaning, language, and signification. Mullican has always been concerned with the relationship between perception and reality, between the ability to see something and the ability to represent it. Mullican's oeuvre, which takes form as drawing, collage, video, sculpture, performance, and installation, confronts the nature of subjective understanding, rationality, and cognition - in essence proposing a "picture" of the world. This first major monograph on Mullican - being published following tremendous renewed interest in the artist's important work by a group of younger artists and curators - considers his work in-depth. Lynne Cooke, chief curator at the Reina Sofia in Madrid, and Hal Foster, art historian, address various aspects of Mullican's multidisciplinary practice. A roundtable discussion between Conceptual artist John Baldessari and critic and curator Hans Ulrich-Obrist completes this comprehensive survey with a discussion on the nature of creativity.
