Cai Guo-Qiang: Ladder to the Sky

$60.00    Member Price: $54.00

With contributions from Jeffrey Deitch, CaiGuo-Qiang, Philipp Kaiser, Shen Kuiyi, Lesley Ma, and Rebecca Morse.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition Cai Guo Qiang: Ladder in the Sky, Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, April  September 2012.

Produced in close collaboration with the artist, this volume documents new projects commissioned for The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, alongside Cai Guo-Qiang’s own survey of his artistic journey and the personal cosmology that informs his work. It features a rich sampling of Cai’s wonderfully diverse oeuvre, including explosion events, gunpowder drawings, and installations. Informative essays and a conversation with the artist explore Cai’s influences, from traditional Chinese scrolls and his father’s miniature paintings to Asian philosophy and memories of his grandmother. Including never-before-published new works and unprecedented contributions by the artist himself, this book promises to be an important reference on Cai’s art for years to come.
