With contributions from Jeffrey Deitch, CaiGuo-Qiang, Philipp Kaiser, Shen Kuiyi, Lesley Ma, and Rebecca Morse.
This catalog was published in conjunction with the exhibition "Cai Guo Qiang Ladder in the Sky", April - September 2012 at the Geffen Contemporary.
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.
