Robert Therrien

Publication Details

This catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition "Robert Therrien," on view at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery from July 3 to October 27, 2013. This exhibition catalogue celebrates the work of Robert Therrien, who, since the 1970s, has created iconic sculptures, mixed-media objects, and works on paper sourced from memory and the everyday. In the artist’s hands, humble images—a snowman, a chapel, a coffin, a keyhole, a stack of plates—are coaxed into surreal configurations through abstraction, repetition, color, and scale. This book features an essay by exhibition curator Heather Pesanti that examines exceptional highlights from all points in his career.
