Published to coincide with Jack Pierson’s recent tenth solo show with Regen Projects, the full-color book surveys thirty-five years of his artistic practice, including photographs, collages and his famous word sculptures. This monograph details works made in the 1980s to present day, definitively outlining his practice overall and the themes he often investigates: experiments with fantasy and self-imaging while toying with spectatorship in a way his contemporaries have never accomplished.
The publication features a new essay by Evan Moffitt that investigates queer cultural zeitgeists, a conversation between Pierson and critic Andy Campbell, and an essay by author Bruce Benderson. In this striking compilation detailing his practice, Pierson’s work is seen through the lens of camp, queer desire and its zeitgeists, and the limits of nostalgia.
