Double Trouble: The Patchett Collection (Softcover)
This substantial double volume catalog was published by the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego and the Auditorio de Galicia, Spain. High and low, sweet and sour, this witty but challenging collection embraces the contradictions, paradoxes and double entendres of contemporary art and culture. Since 1991 Tom Patchett has amassed a massive and iconoclastic collection. Some of the artists highlighted include Joseph Beuys, Chris Burden, Nicole Eisenman, the Fluxus Collective, Marcel Duchamp, Llyn Foulkes, Mike Kelley, Martin Kippenberger, Rachel Lachowicz, Paul McCarthy, Manuel Ocampo, Burt Payne 3, Raymond Pettibon, Charles Ray, Man Ray, Kiki Smith, Fred Tomaselli, and Christopher Wool. Double Trouble features more than 350 color reproductions with essays by curator Elizabeth Armstrong, Ralph Rugoff, Karal Ann Marling and others.
