These works come from four of his collage series, including Chimera, Je est un autre, as well as the previously unpublished Prisons of Invention and Piranesian Maps of Berlin. Additionally, there are photographs of Ziggurat, an outdoor sculpture with a design based on a collage from Chimera. The full-color plates are supplemented with essays by critic and curator Aaron Betsky, scholar of art history and archaeology Anna Arabindan-Kesson, Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s curator James Glisson, and Marshall Brown that outline the conceptual foundations of Brown’s intriguing exploration of an intersection of architecture and art.
James Glisson is an art historian and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s curator of contemporary art. Marshall Brown is an architect and artist. He runs his own design practice Marshall Brown Projects and is associate professor of architecture at Princeton University. He represented the United States at the 2016 international architectu...
