CLAMP is pleased to present “Sculpture of the 20th Century,” an exhibition of collages by artist Aaron Krach to coincide with the release of his newest monograph of the same name and its launch at Printed Matter’s 2022 NY Art Book Fair.
Krach’s series of 28 collages, entitled “Twentieth Century Men,” is constructed from two books: a catalogue from MoMa called Sculpture of the 20th Century (1952) and a book of male erotic photographs, The Look of Men, (1980) by Victor Arimondi.
Krach says: “I loved both books for their still-potent visual pleasure. Yet I felt guilty for enjoying them. Modernism did not equal progress, at least not for most people. And the history of gay men—and the world—forever changed during the 1980s.”
The 88-page book, produced in an edition of 100, will be available for purchase from the artist’s booth at the NY Art Book Fair as well as at CLAMP ($45 + shipping).
