Published by Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
Foreword by Madeleine Grynsztejn. Text by Naomi Beckwith, Marie de Brugerolle. Interview by Ian White.

This catalogue accompanies the first large-scale solo U.S. exhibition of the work of BrusselsĖbased artist Jimmy Robert (born 1975). One of Europeís most dynamic younger artists, Robert works in a range of media, including photography, sculptural objects, film, video and collaborative performances. What unites these different threads is a concern for the body and a guiding interest in the poetic potential of ephemeral materials such as paper and tape. Creating form through gesture, Robert draws inspiration from such artists as Yvonne Rainer and Yoko Ono. His exploration of folding bodies, crumpling paper and filmed repetitive gestures has come to define him as an artist of touching: the act of tearing tape from skin, a hand stroking hair, fingers rubbing a text. Jimmy Robert includes multiple paper stocks and sizes, is spiral-bound and features the artistís newest work.
