New York: Skarstedt Fine Art, 2005. 1st Edition. Quarto, publisher's green cloth, spine and upper board stamped in white, black endpapers, original illustrated dust jacket.
"Money talks. It starts rumors about careers and complicity and speaks of the tragedies and triumphs of our social lives. It makes art." Collection of collages by Barbara Kruger published on the occasion of a 2003 show at the Skarstedt Gallery in New York. Centered around the concept of money and power, Kruger uses her iconic collages to critique the American obsession with currencies of all kinds, be it business, property, charisma, sex, information, time or even divinity. Kruger is a leading name in the world of contemporary and conceptual art; her work is displayed internationally at locations such as the Institute of Contemporary art in London, Moderna Museet in Stockholm, and the Whitney Museum of Art in New York. Illustrated with 30 black-and-white plates; with an introduction by Museum of Contemporary Art director Lisa Phillips, and two essays written by Kruger. Fine in unclipped dust jacket. Item #3617
