Candida Alvarez / HERE. A Visual Reader (Signed)
Signed by the artist
CANDIDA ALVAREZ: HERE was the artist's first major institutional exhibition, taking place at the Chicago Cultural Center and reflecting forty years of her painting. Embracing and further contextualizing her work, CANDIDA ALVAREZ: HERE: A VISUAL READER features full-color reproductions of individual artworks and views of the exhibition as well as images from her Fall/Winter menswear collaboration with Rei Kawakubo for Comme des Graçons. Edited by Fulla Abdul-Jabbar and Caroline Picard, this book presents a selection of articles from 1983 to the present; conversations between Alvarez and Dawoud Bey, Kay Rosen, Daniel Schulman, and Rebecca Walker; and newly commissioned texts including a prose response by Elizabeth Alexander as well as essays by the exhibition's curator, Terry R. Myers, and art historians Kellie Jones and Daniel R. Quiles. CANDIDA ALVAREZ: HERE: A VISUAL READER thus captures Alvarez's work in print to sparking further conversations about her legacy.
