The first publication covering the practice of the artist, examining a large body of his work over the course of his career.
Abbas Akhavan’s practice ranges from site-specific ephemeral installations to drawing, video and performance. The domestic sphere, as a forked space between hospitality and hostility, has been an on-going area of research in Abbas’ work. More recent works have shifted focus, wandering onto spaces just outside the home – the garden, the backyard, and other domesticated landscapes. The 160-page book will aim to reflect the conceptual aesthetics of Abbas’ practice and will include essays by Dr. Omar Kholeif (Manilow Senior Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago), Marina Roy (Artist, Associate Professor Art History, Visual Art, and Theory, University of British Columbia) and others.
