The first monograph dedicated to the artist, this book includes an essay
by Michael Newman as well as Price's own critical take on his practice,
given in the form of a videotaped conference that structures the
presentation of his works.
Through paintings, sculpture, video, and media work, Seth Price (*1973
East Jerusalem, lives and works in New York) underlines the production
strategies, dissemination modes, and valuation patterns of art. His
work, which he rather calls a “redistribution” of (often)
pirated materials, disrupts the operations of commodity culture. Among
his formats and tactics one should mention the recycling of iconic
illustrations, reduplication (from digital to vacuum-formed techniques),
the reenactment of projects, and the collaborative actions with
(formed in 2003 with Bettina Funcke
, Wade Guyton
and Joseph Logan) or other artists.
