Christopher Wool: Roma Termini

Regular price Regular price $40

This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Christopher Wool at Gagosian, Rome. The loose-leaf portfolio features works that continue Wool’s ongoing formal investigation of abstract painting’s interruption by mechanically reproducible fragments and gestures, including recent paintings made out of the digitally altered images of past works and a photographic series titled Roma.

In the style of earlier photo series such as East Broadway Breakdown, Away Without Leave, and Incident on 9th St., Roma offers a hard-boiled tour of classical grime, locating incidental mishaps and nocturnal banalities in the streets of Rome as if it were the scene of innumerable crimes. The bilingual (English/Italian) publication includes a whimsical essay by Tommaso Pincio on Wool and other “painter-scribes” who have passed through this eternal city.
