Published on the occasion of the Orange County Museum of Art's 2004 California Biennial, this catalogue celebrates the work of 27 of the most exciting emerging artists and artist collaboratives based in California. This exhibition--the largest and most ambitious Biennial in the museum's history--features artists working in a wide range of styles and media, representing the multi-national, multi-ethnic character of California's rich artistic environment. This beautifully illustrated and designed catalogue features an introductory essay by Elizabeth Armstrong, and essays on each of the artists by co-curators Armstrong and Irene Hofmann, and writers Kristin Chambers, Cary Levine, and Jane Simon. A critical resource for contemporary artists and curators, this book appeals to the national and international contemporary art audience. Artists include Libby Black, Karl Haendel, Ruben Ochoa, Mungo Thomson, and others.
