Item description for Prime Mover: Five Exhibitions from the Pamela and Richard Kramlich Collection by Nicholas Serota Christopher Eamon...
An excellent private screening in clothbound book form: since the late 1980s, Pamela and Richard Kramlich have been buying widely in the field of time-based, or moving-image art, amassing contemporary and historical works by Marina Abramovic, Bruce Nauman, Matthew Barney, James Coleman and Eija-Liisa Ahtila. Their groundbreaking collection has evolved during an unprecedented surge in the use of film and video by artists, and Prime Mover is thus not only a record of their bold and influential choices, but a guide to the time-based art of the last half century. With in-depth entries on each work of art, over 300 installation shots, stills and frame enlargements, an index by artwork and artist, and a complete bibliography on the collection, this volume expands our understanding of both the art of the past and today's engagements with film and video.
