Into the Light: The Projected Image in American Art, 1964-1977 (Whitney Museum of American Art Books)
The incorporation of large-scale moving images into art installations has a rich history, this text accompanies the exhibition exploring this theme. It reconstructs 19 classic works in film, video and slide installations from the mid-1960s through the mid-1970s. These projected installations created a new language of artmaking, centered around an exploration of physical and psychological space. The publication discusses each work in detail as well as examining the cinematic and art historical precedents that led to the development of this type of art expression. Along with new colour and duotone photographs of reconstructed installations by Michael Heizer, Dan Graham, Bruce Nauman, and Andy Warhol, this volume includes previously unpublished diagrams and other documentation from the period.
