Known for his immersive environmental spaces and his experiments with light, Doug Wheeler (born 1939) helped pioneer both the material and conceptual approach behind the Light and Space movement. This monograph, the first book dedicated to Wheeler, includes extensive archival imagery from early on in the artist’s career, along with plates from his recent shows and projects.
Structured around an essay by renowned Italian art historian Germano Celant, Doug Wheeler presents the first definitive history of the artist’s life and practice. The volume is interspersed with numerous excerpts from interviews conducted with Wheeler’s peers that situate him alongside the artists of his time, shedding light on his influence on the development of West Coast art. With its vibrant imagery and ambitious critical approach, Doug Wheeler is a crucial historical document on an artist whose significance only increases with time.
