What does painting mean today? Works by New York-based artist Rudolf Stingel present a persistent, radical reflection on fundamental questions with respect to painting. His use of unconventional materials such as carpet, painted aluminum or Styrofoam continually disturb the viewer's notions of art as painting and sculpture merge together. This volume documents Rudolf Stingel's extensive solo exhibition that took place in 2007 at Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. The show spanned the last twenty years of the artist's career‚Ä'from his works with names, patterns and scratches created with the active participation of visitors to the museum, to his footprint images and the Styrofoam objects and Photo-Realist self-portraits.
