Exhibition monograph. One of the most brilliant overviews of the artist/photographer's oeuvre, it marks the very first full-fledged retrospective exhibition of Wolfgang Tillmans' body of work in the United States. The first and only edition. A brilliant production by Wolfgang Tillmans: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial hard boards with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Wolfgang Tillmans. Essays by all six of the leading scholarly experts on the art of Wolfgang Tillmans. Extensive Biography and Bibliography appended at the end. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Canada to the very highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the landmark exhibition held at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago from May 20 through August 13, 2006. The show travelled on to other major venues in the United States. Presents some of the finest and most representative images by the German-born, London-based artist/photographer in a handsome hardcover-edition format. "The underbelly of the world and the pursuit of impossible truth: Wolfgang Tillmans takes his exploration of the visible world to a new level. Widely regarded as one of the most influential artists of his generation, his work, while appearing to capture the immediacy of the moment and the character of the subject, also examines the dynamics of photographic representation. From the outset, he ignored the traditional separation between art exhibited in a gallery and images conveyed through other forms of publication, giving equal weight to both" (Benedikt Taschen). Together with Taschen's own volume on Tillmans, "Truth Study Center", this is an indispensable, "must-have" guide to Wolfgang Tillmans's world, the world of the incurable voyeur. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in blue marker on the title page by Wolfgang Tillmans. He did exactly one signing in the United States, after seemingly interminable negotiations, and no other signed copies from anywhere have turned up. This title has had very limited distribution and is highly collectible as Tillmans very rarely signs. This is the only signed copy available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Turner Prize in 2000, the most prestigious contemporary art award. Wolfgang Tillmans' "Concorde" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the most brilliant living artist/photographers. A flawless copy.
