Roberta Tenconi (Ed.)
Pirelli Hangarbicocca & Skira, 2020
Stemming from Matt Mullican’s (born 1951) acclaimed retrospective held at Hangar Bicocca, Milan, in summer 2018, this publication follows Rubbings Catalogue 1984–2016 (2016). It is dedicated to his photographic practice and its relation to his larger oeuvre, and comprises a selection of around 1,700 images and photographs made by the artist between 1971 and 2018, chronologically classified by medium. Essays by Anne Rorimer and Tina Rivers, as well as conversations with Matt Mullican and James Welling, offer an overview of his relationship to image-making and photography and case studies about his use of digital photography, his innovative practice of the 1970s, and the biographical aspects of this extensive corpus. A portfolio realized by the artist, based on his Milan exhibition, allows for an in-depth reading of his unique universe.
