Jimmie Durham – Revised and Expanded Edition: Contemporary Artists Series

Hardcover

Price: $69.95

Overview

An updated edition of the first – and still most authoritative – book on the legendary American iconoclast

Twenty years ago, Phaidon published what has become the definitive study of Arkansas-born Jimmie Durham’s career. This highly anticipated new edition brings this important book up to date, tracing his remarkable life from his experiences in the US, Mexico, and Europe – including his early involvement with the American Indian Movement – to his most recent output. It presents a full assessment of his sculptures, performances, wall-based collages, and ersatz ethnographic displays, that deliver ironic assaults on the colonizing procedures of Western culture.
