John Currin: Men

Regular price Regular price $100

This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition John Currin: My Life as a Man at Dallas Contemporary. While Currin has been best known for his deliberately provocative portrayals of women, he has also depicted a range of masculine identities throughout his career. This volume is the first to focus exclusively on this aspect of his work.

It examines the evolution of his equally charged depictions of men, which range from little-known early works on paper and a series of kitschy paintings of bearded men to signature eccentric figures and more baroque genre scenes featuring male couples. The publication features new essays by exhibition curator Alison M. Gingeras, cultural critic Naomi Fry, and psychoanalyst Jamieson Webster.
