Since the early 2000s, New York-based Kelley Walker (born 1969) has developed a body of work that uses the potency of advertising strategies to interrogate the ways a single image can migrate into several cultural contexts and how everything and everyone is subject to reinvention. Often using such technologies as 3-D modeling and laser cutting, Walker works in photography, painting, printmaking, collage and sculpture, to draw attention to popular culture's perpetual consumption. This comprehensive monograph features Walker's various bodies of works to date (the Black Star Press, Brick Paintings, Recycling Signs and Schema series, among others) alongside his most recent pieces. Edited and introduced by Jeffrey Uslip, it brings together new essays by MoMA curator Christophe Cherix, Le Consortium's Co-Director Anne Pontégnie and University of Southern California's Professor Suzanne Hudson.
