Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Krist Gruijthuijsen, Agustín Pérez Rubio. Text by Marci Kwon, Sofie Krogh Christensen, Agustín Pérez Rubio, David J. Getsy, Julie Ault, Heinz Peter Knes, Danh Vo.

Straddling East and West Coast postwar art cultures from the late 1960s until his death, Martin Wong (1946–99) painted narratives of queer existence, marginal communities and gentrification in a visual vocabulary that merged Chinese iconography, urban poetry, graffiti and sign language. Wong took a thrillingly irreverent stance on sexual and political topics that were rarely given recognition within the art discourses of the time.
The most substantial volume on the artist yet published, and the result of exhaustive research, Martin Wong: Malicious Mischief situates Wong’s exhilarating painterly explorations within his era and his complex cultural position, reproducing an abundance of paintings from across his career.
