Elements and Unknowns

September 4–November 23, 2008

The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building

This exhibition considers a group of artist's books, published from the late 1960s to the present, that reveal a fascination with elemental, unexplored, and overlooked spaces. Drawn from the Library of The Museum of Modern Art, the works on view span two generations of art and thought concerned with natural phenomena, bringing the viewer face to face with a natural world still beyond human control. Featured artists include Doug Aitken, Vija Celmins, Tacita Dean, Hamish Fulton, Roni Horn, Richard Long, Bruce Nauman, Gerhard Richter, Ed Ruscha, and Tadanori Yokoo, among others.

Organized by May Castleberry, Editor, Library Council.

This exhibition is supported by the Library Council and the Trustee Committee on Museum Archives, Library and Research.
