Product Description

Print the Legend: The Myth of the West

Print the Legend has its origins in Patricia Bickers’s longstanding fascination with westerns.  An art historian, lecturer, writer and the editor of Art Monthly since 1992, Bickers here uses her passion for westerns as a lens through which to look at a diverse group of artworks, ranging from sculpture and photography to installation and – of course – film.

This book discusses the works in the context of the western as the key component of the myth of the American West, a myth as potent and as politically and culturally relevant now, argues Bickers, as it has ever been. Includes work by Adam Chodzko, Nathan Coley, Douglas Gordon, Peter Granser, Martin Kippenberger, Isaac Julien, Cornelia Parker, Simon Patterson, Mike Nelson, Salla Tykka and Gillian Wearing.
