Very Good. Text free of underlining, writing and highlighting. Light cover wear. This exhibition honors Gerald Elliotts spirit of series of installations hiehli ehtins the collection of the late Gerald S. Elliott. Elliotts 1994 bequest of 105 works, including 31 Naumans, was the largest single gift of art in the MCA'S history. Elliott was noted in the international art community for the enthusiasm and knowledge he brought to art collecting. While his first interest was abstract expressionism, he later came to focus on what were to become his great loves, minimal and conceptual art. He was particularly passionate about the work of Bruce Nauman. Elliott believed that Nauman's complexity and remorseless (often tragicomic) dramatization of human weakness made him one of the most important living artists. Elliotts Stones, which Elliott commissioned in 1989, encourages both contemplation of the immediate physical boundary of the body and placement of the seif in an imaginative and spiritual time. Nauman questions where we are and our understanding of why and how we exist and create. senerosity and celebrates his oassion for and commitment to the ever challenging activity of creative endeavor. Elliotts Stones continues in the museum's Permanent Collection Focus series, which will take on a greatly expanded presence in the museum's new building, to open in mid-1996. Kevin E.

Very Good. Text free of underlining, writing and highlighting. Very nice clean copy. Consider the existence of a world in which words, in the form of brightly colored neon signs, literally mirror themselves, where two words containing the same letters are paired together, and where a litany of terse phrases ending with the word "die" flash off and on. Consider not just the existence, but the possible meaning, of a place where language, like mercury or nitro-glycerine, is not only both an unstable and unpredictable material, but also a poisonous and explosive one. Consider the possibility of looking at words äs if they are things you have never seen, much less studied, before.

From the publisher: "One of the most influential artists of our time, Bruce Nauman (b1941), is known for his challenging and diverse practice. Working in a range of media, from holography to neon to video, the artist has investigated as varied an array of subject matter, from the nature of the art-making process to the nature of the human condition. Featuring a tightly focused selection of works, the catalogue looks at the artist's use of performance strategies as a conduit for heightened self-awareness for both artist and viewer."
