Elliott Hundley: The Bacchae Catalogue

$35.00    Member Price: $31.50

Elliott Hundley conceives of his exhibitions as theatrical environments - dense narrative landscapes populated by actors. By interspersing monumental collages with carefully placed sculptural groupings, Hundley creates immersive environments that animate the classical texts that are his sources. These epic installations collapse historical and narrative time, placing equal emphasis on classical mythology, art history and the socio-political conditions of the present. Published for one of Hundley's most significant museum exhibitions to date, Agave of the Bacchae, this catalogue is the first sustained treatment of the artist's work. Building on Hundley's previous investigations of Euripides' tragedy The Bacchae, the catalogue examines the artist's effort to elaborate a critical relationship between classical literary sources and contemporary society.


Essays by Christopher Bedford, poet Anne Carson and art historian Richard Meyer.
