Barry Le Va

ÔÑBarry Le Va is back. After more than 10 years without a major exhibition in the United States, a mini-blockbuster of a retrospective at the University of Pennsylvania’s Institute for Contemporary Art in early 2005 rescattered Le Va’s felt, reimbedded his cleavers in a wall, and rebroke his sheets of plate glass–to extraordinary critical acclaim. Now, to complement that exhibition and for insight into a mind that has remained consistently true to a renegade vision for some 35 years, we have a collection of writings, studies, notes, drawings, sketches, and more from a cult artist who has influenced a younger generation that includes Jason Rhoades, Cady Noland, Karen Kilimnik, and Rirkrit Tiravanija. The book brings together for the first time in one place three major early interviews, and adds a new one with Christophe Cherix.
