Published on the occasion of Rebecca Morris’s traveling survey exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Rebecca Morris: 2001–2022 is the first major monograph devoted to the Los Angeles-based artist’s expansive painting practice.
Through essays by both longtime collaborators and new voices, this densely illustrated volume delves into the historiography of Morris’s use of color and the art historical contexts of her work, and traces the artist’s own photo documentation of her studios over a 21-year period. Today, Morris remains steadfast to an ethos of constant evolution and a rigorous commitment to experimentation in painting. As she wrote in a widely circulated manifesto from 2005: “Abstraction never left, motherfuckers.”
Edited with text by Jamillah James, a forward by Anne Ellegood, and text by Anthony Elms, Alex Jen, Camila McHugh, and Hamza Walker. Designed by Lorraine Wild and Amy Fortunato of Green Dragon Office.
