RODNEY GRAHAM: A Little Thought / Exhibition at Art Gallery of Ontario ( AGO ); Vancouver Art Gallery ( VAG ); Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles ( MOCA )


-----------hardcover, about 10 x 12 inches, a near Fine copy in a Near Fine dustjacket, looks new, 208 pages, colour and b&w images throughout, ---"One of Canada's most humorous conceptual artists--as witty as he is smart--Rodney Graham gets his first North American museum retrospective and accompanying catalogue. Rodney Graham: A Little Thought tracks the career of a brilliant, idiosyncratic artist whose work spans a range of media including photography, film, book works, installation and pop music. In this volume, amply illustrated with many never-before-seen images from early in his career as well as new photography of his most recent works, scholarly essays provide a broad context for viewing: Cornelia Butler looks at Graham's relationship to landscape and Canadian identity, Lynne Cooke examines the construction of the artist's persona in works such as City Self/ Country Self (2001), and Shep Steiner discusses the joke as a conceptual strategy for Graham. Diedrich Diederichsen considers the artist's oeuvre within the context of musical structure, and Sara Krajewski describes how Graham's video works unfold. Finally, Grant Arnold offers an in-depth illustrated chronology, tracing the range of activities that have occupied Graham since his early days on the Vancouver scene"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
