Edited by Christophe Cherix. Essays by Saul Ostrow and Willoughby Sharp.
Barry Le Va is back. After more than ten 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.

Edited by Ingrid Schaffner. Essays by Rhea Anastas, Pamela Lee, Ingrid Schaffner and Paul Virilio. Foreword by Claudia Gould.
This is the first major American presentation of Barry Le Va's art in over 15 years, and one that brings together not only the artist's well-known, large-scale sculptures and drawings, but also his works in other media for which he is less known--text, photography, sound and books. Le Va's approach has been ubiquitous to Postmodern practice in art and architecture, and this fully illustrated book, featuring 300 images and four scholarly essays, his illustrated exhibition history and a bibliography, is the definitive survey of his work's development and implicit themes of violence. It accompanies the exhibition Accumulated Vision at the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania.
