A comprehensive study of one of the most versatile artists and acute observers of our time, who fuses art and fashion American artist Sterling Ruby works in a large variety of media, including sculpture, ceramics, painting, and video art. Ruby is influenced by a wide range of sources, including marginalized societies, maximum-security prisons, modernist architecture, artefacts and antiquities, graffiti, waste and consumption, and urban gangs.

Reviews

The first book to collect the multifaceted work of the LA-based artist... Reflects on the work of an iconic living artist and examines how the Raf Simons collaborator confronts contemporary society through ceramics, collages, videos and paintings. -Amuse-i-d.vice.com Authoritative and extensively illustrated. -Artnet On the Contemporary Artists Series The boldest, best executed, and most far-reaching publishing project devoted to contemporary art. These books will revolutionize the way contemporary art is presented and written about. -Artforum The combination of intelligent analysis, personal insight, useful facts and plentiful pictures is a superb format invaluable for specialists but also interesting for casual readers, it makes these books a must for the library of anyone who cares about contemporary art. -Time Out A unique series of informative monographs on individual artists. -The Sunday Times Gives the reader the impression of a personal encounter with the artists. Apart from the writing which is lucid and illuminating, it is undoubtedly the wealth of lavish illustrations which makes looking at these books a satisfying entertainment. -The Art Book
