Simultaneous Soloists is a compilation emerging from British installation artist Anthony McCall’s (born 1946) Solid Light Works exhibition at Pioneer Works (2018), based on the accompanying performance series Four Simultaneous Soloists organized by composer David Grubbs. Referring to four soloist performers witnessed individually or as an ensemble alongside McCall’s sculptural volumes of light, the editors recount these events through a dialogue discussing a decade of working together in intersecting practices. Also included in the book are writings by art historians Branden W. Joseph and Swagato Chakravorty, reproductions from McCall’s archival materials and drawings paired with photo documentation of the exhibition, and interviews with the 16 participating musicians. As told to Grubbs, these interviews invite an expanded audience to consider the in-situ performances by Susan Alcorn, MV Carbon, Maria Chávez, Che Chen, Jules Gimbrone, Sarah Hennies, Eli Keszler, Okkyung Lee, Miya Masaoka, Christopher McIntyre, Tomeka Reid, Ben Vida, Yoshi Wada, Nate Wooley and C. Spencer Yeh.

British-born, New York–based artist Anthony McCall (born 1946) is known for his “solid-light” installations, which blur the line between sculpture and performance. This monograph offers an overview of his oeuvre.

A pioneer of light art and installation, British artist Anthony McCall (born 1946) explores the most basic properties of cinema—light and its projection. His earliest works of the 1970s were shot on film using an animation camera and shown using a 16mm film projector. Since 2004 they have been produced using digital animation, and shown using a digital projector. McCall's often epically scaled light projections are at once three-dimensional sculptures and ephemeral drawings in space; they have inspired an entire generation of artists working in film and installation. In this publication, which celebrates the artist's first exhibition in the Netherlands, McCall explains his cinematic sculptures in an interview, and his work is placed in both a historical and a contemporary context, supplemented by numerous installation shots, drawings and other documentation.

His "solid light" installations occupy a space between line-drawing, cinema and sculpture. 1970s Works on Paper surveys his drawings from the 1970s, and showcases key works such as "Landscape for Fire" and "Five-Minute Drawing."
