Fifteen people present their favorite book [After Kosuth]
Matthew Higgs
New York : Glenn Horowitz Bookseller, 2009.
[32] p. : il. b/n ; 21 x 14,8 cm.

This artist’s book was made to document an installation that was one part of an exhibition of art by artist and curator Matthew Higgs. The installation was a re-staging of a little known work made by Joseph Kosuth in 1966. In Kosuth’s original version, books chosen by Carl Andre, Robert Morris, Sol Lewitt, Robert Smithson, and others were presented as a work of art in the Lannis Gallery, NY. By re-staging this pioneering piece of information art (this time using books chosen by Wade Guyton, Adam McEwen, Elizabeth Peyton, Richard Prince, Rob Pruitt, Kelley Walker, Gavin Brown, Clarissa Dalrymple, Jonathan Horowitz, Pati Hertling, Nick Mauss, Ken Okiishi, T.J. Wilcox, Anne Collier, and Joseph Logan), Higgs is both calling attention to an overlooked piece of art history, and signalling toward the conceptual underpinnings of his own work.
