Very Good. Like New Editorial Reviews From Library Journal Published to accompany a mi d-career retrospective traveling from New York to Los Angeles to Chicago in the com ing months, this is the first comprehensive look at the 45-year-ol d Ray, a quietly influential figure in the art world for over a decade. Whi le Ray, w ho early on moved from performance to sculpture as his primary me ans of exp ression, has produced a limited output, we can now stand back an d appreciat e his body of work as a whole. The mostly explanatory text comp lements the simple eloquence of the pieces themselves, but curator Schimmel does find a trail of Freudian abnormalites and psychological concerns thro ughout the c onceptual artist's productions. This oversized book (11" x 14" ) does a good job of capturing the play with scale that is central to many later works; early performances (such as "Plank Piece, " during which Ray d raped himself over a board against a wall) are well documented in photograp hs within the essays. Recommended for all libraries that collect works on c ontempoary art ists. ?
