An eclectic contemporary master of figuration examined through multiple lenses in this career-spanning catalogue

Kai Althoff is one of the most consummate--and unpredictable--artists of his generation. A painter and a draftsman, he has experimented since the mid-1990s with combinations of unconventional mediums and exhibition formats to create all-encompassing environments that might include finely detailed drawings, collage, woven textiles, knitted fabric, soft sculpture, paintings, writing, video, fragrance and song.

Published in conjunction with a major exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, this publication presents Althoff’s work in all mediums made over a 25-year career. Created in close collaboration with the artist, the book features lavish color reproductions of Althoff’s most significant works. Contributions by scholars, art professionals and friends of the artist offer multiple perspectives on Althoff’s iconographically rich work.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Artforum

Michelle Kuo

Kai Althoff is decadent, in the fin-de-siècle sense of the world. Creating a world of interiors all its own.

The New York Times

Ken Johnson

An exceptionally skillful draftsman with an idiosyncratic, storytelling imagination.

Time Out

Howard Halle

The work isn't so much an art of memory as it is about the way memory functions, both personally and collectively: why we remember, what we remember and what we keep stuffed in a trunk of avoidance.
