Early works, regional projects and acclaimed series from Allan McCollum, whose work often blurs boundaries between unique artifacts and mass production

Since the late 1960s, the American artist Allan McCollum (born 1944) has created works that examine the art object’s relationship to uniqueness, context and value, as well as to the museum that collects, values and preserves it. Allan McCollum: Works since 1969, which accompanies a major survey of the artist's work, brings together new scholarship, documentary material and in-depth information on McCollum’s decades-long career, adding to the broader historical and theoretical interpretation of the artist’s important practice.

McCollum’s celebrated works can be interpreted in infinite ways and have significant impact on the understanding of the role of art and material culture in society. Throughout his career the artist has explored various economies and contexts that structure collections and presentations of objects. Interested in how material artifacts become charged with meaning, McCollum understands these objects as vehicles of self-assurance and self-representation within communities.

This book traces the artist’s career through numerous illustrations, supplementary material and texts, focusing on three key components—early work, “regional projects” and the artist’s most iconic series.

An important new survey on Allan McCollum

An important new survey on Allan McCollum

Featured spreads are from new release Allan McCollum: Works since 1969, published to accompany the first U.S. museum retrospective of the artist's work in fifty years, on view at ICA Miami earlier this year. Collecting early works, regional projects and the acclaimed series for which he is best known, it includes scholarship by Stephanie Seidel, Alex Kitnick, Jennifer Jane Marshall and ICA Miami Artistic Director Alex Gartenfeld, who writes, “The term ‘generic’ comes from the Latin-derived ‘genus,’ the classification of objects beyond species, and according to kind. And while as an adjective it can be used pejoratively, ‘generic’ might help us to understand Allan McCollum’s effort to group objects and to understand the nature of collections. The word might account for the extent to which McCollum’s iconic works are ingrained in the public consciousness. Indeed, the term ‘generic’ functions duly in McCollum’s work, expressing how his objects… are intended to stand in for any artwork. Viewed this way, McCollum’s work moved seamlessly, by the late 1980s, into objects outside the art world that accrue financial, symbolic or cultural value like art. McCollum’s work necessarily involves exploring how art functions in society, with the artist intuiting in the late 1960s that the gallery is a mere stage for artworks.” continue to blog
