'Forgetting the Art World' Book Launch
San Francisco, California 94110
Book launch for Lee's most recent publication, Forgetting the Art World on Saturday October 6th, 2012 at 3pm. In Forgetting the Art World, Pamela M. Lee inquires "how to confront the relation between globalization and contemporary art when we are both object of, and agent for, such processes." Forgetting the Art World includes essays on the work of art’s mattering and materialization in a globalized world, with close readings of works by Takahashi Murakami, Andreas Gursky, Thomas Hirschhorn, and others. Lee is Professor of Art History at Stanford University and the author of Object to Be Destroyed: The Work of Gordon Matta-Clark and Chronophobia: On Time in the Art of the 1960s, both published by the MIT Press.
