Allan McCollum: Works since 1969Allan McCollum: Works since 1969

Published by DelMonico Books/Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami.
Edited with text by Alex Gartenfeld, Stephanie Seidel. Text by Alex Kitnick, Jennifer Jane Marshall.

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.

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Rhea Anastas. Text by Martha Buskirk, MaryJo Marks, Catherine Quéloz.

Since the late 1970s, Allan McCollum (born 1944) has addressed the anthropology of art: its distribution, acquisition, display and interpretation. From his first Surrogate Paintings (1978-82) to his Individual Works (1987-89) or recent Shapes Project(since 2005), through his famous series of Plaster Surrogates (begun in 1982), Perpetual Photos (since 1981) and Perfect Vehicles (since 1986), McCollum has revealed art's mechanisms as a status-generating economy. In the 1990s, his “art objects” were replaced by found objects belonging to a situated context and community, in an effort to explore local micro-politics and to develop projects with specific milieus. His use of multiples, of museums and display aesthetics as compositional elements, all stem from this displacement of context. Working with regional museums, heterogeneous audiences, and references going from paleontology to mineralogy, McCollum today has built a truly unique and intriguing body of work that receives its first comprehensive overview in this monograph.
