This publication highlights the work of prolific American sculptor and performance artist Terry Adkins (1953-2014), who synthesized a deep interest in history with an improvisational approach to art-making, producing an expansive body of work that often reflects on the legacies of unsung figures in American culture.Terry Adkins: Resounding traces the artist's development over his more than three-decade career with nearly 50 works across a variety of mediums including sound, sculpture, video and printmaking. The book includes rarely shown examples from Adkins's early work alongside some of his most celebrated pieces, bringing together selections from several acclaimed installations for the first time since their debuts. In addition, the catalog presents a range of items that the artist collected, including books, musical instruments and objects from various artistic traditions. This collection gives new insight into the breadth of Adkins' literary, musical and visual influences.
