Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Introduction by Robert Storr.

To accompany the full-scale exhibtion catalogue for Elizabeth Murray's retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art in October 2005, the Museum is also producing a matching artist's book. Since Murray's works often operate in three dimensions, this book will contain two pop-ups, one derived from an existing painting, the other from a drawing created especially for the book. Both pop-ups are to be designed by the accomplished paper engineer Bruce Foster in collaboration with the artist. The book will also show a selection of the preperatory sketches and other drawings that Murray makes to ceate these works. Robert Storr, organizer of the Murray retrospective, will contribute an introduction.

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Essay by Robert Storr.

Elizabeth Murray has radically altered the structure of Modernist painting. Her shaped and constructed canvases, often topologically modeled in three dimensions or fitted together out of multiple jigsaw-like parts, treat figure and ground in unprecedented ways, giving the elastic shapes of classic Surrealism a space in their own image. The alternatively comfortable and cataclysmic world that her images depict would crack irrevocably if it followed Euclidean logic; instead; it constantly metamorphoses under stress. With a chaptered essay by Robert Storr, plate section, and in-depth interview, the book will explore Murray's relation to artists such as Joan Mir, Stuart Davis, Claes Oldenburg and Frank Stella, as well as to the mainstream and opened up options for rising generations. This book accompanies the most detailed examination of Murray's art yet mounted, showing its development from Pop-oriented reliefs in the 1960s to the extraordinary volumetric of her recent work.
