Item description for All Hawaii Entrees: Lunar Reggae by Kurt Vonnegut, Cory Doctorow, Liam Gillick, Grant Morrison, Caoimhin Mac Giolla Leith, Hans Prujit, Doug Aitken & Sarah Lucas...
This crowd of artists, as exuberant as this collection's title, were recruited for a mini-survey of contemporary art based on the diversity of their approaches and practices, which the editors saw as representative. Their work in a variety of media from film and video to painting and installation is informed by everyday life, and addresses issues such as ecology, technology, popular culture and globalization. The pieces gathered here include a mix of key moments in conceptual art and newly commissioned works, sourced from the artists' studios and from international collections. Contributors include Liam Gillick, Carsten Holler, Douglas Gordon, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Jorge Pardo, Sarah Morris, Cerith Wyn Evans, Sarah Lucas, Anri Sala, Doug Aitken, Jim Lambie, Paola Pivi, Carles Congost and Eva Rothschild, and their work appears alongside pieces from the estates of Alighiero e Boetti and Bas Jan Ader. With texts from Liam Gillick and Kurt Vonnegut, among others.

Kurt Vonnegut's black humor, satiric voice, and incomparable imagination first captured America's attention in The Sirens of Titan in 1959 and established him as "a true artist" (The New York Times) with Cat's Cradlein 1963. He was, as Graham Greene declared, "one of the best living American writers." Mr. Vonnegut passed away in April 2007.
