Item description for Mimmo Rotella: Selected Works by Germano Celant...

The art of Mimmo Rotella seems to be marked by a constant play of chance and intuition–”the mythical mental radar” to which the artist often alludes in his writings–and can be characterized by his attraction to the unusual, the unexplored and the unforeseen. Germano Celant traces Rotella's work, in all of its diversified phases and periods from 1946 to the present, including the initial geometrical and pre-décollages works, the decollages and the verso of torn street posters, the artypo and emulsified canvases, the blanks, and the overpaintings. Rotella has been the subject of numerous retrospectives throughout Europe and the United States, including Grand Central Station, New York in 1994; Cuartel del Conde Duque, Madrid also in 1994; Galerie Ernst Hilger, Wien in 1999; and Palazzo della Triennale, Milan in 2004. In 1964, Rotella represented Italy in the Venice Biennale.
Germano Celant is an art historian and Senior Curator for contemporary art at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum of New York. He is contributing editor to ArtForum and Interview. He is internationally acclaimed for his work on “Arte Povera.” His recent publications include Architecture & Arts 1900/2004 (Skira 2005) and Manzoni Catalogo delle Opere (Skira 2004).

What every art book should be  Sep 23, 2007
I pre-ordered this book months before the release date, not really knowing what to expect, but when it arrived I was blown away. As this site's description says, this book covers Rotella's work from 1946 to the present. The book is in chronological order, and there are hundreds of reproductions of his art, which are very detailed and often the size of a full page. The book also includes a good amount of text about the artist, information about some of the pieces, and more.

It does seem that there were quite a few pieces left out, most noticeably some of his works on Marilyn Monroe's film posters, but as far as I know, this is still the most comprehensive book ever put together on Rotella. It looks like a lot of hard work went into this book, and it paid off. One of my favorites.
