Rare Luis Gonzalez Palma collectible item. A signed copy of the exhibition monograph, "Poetic Paradox: Ten Years of Innovation In Latino Art". The first and only edition. Published in a very small and limited print run as a softcover original only. There is no ISBN. The book is now rare. It is very beautifully produced and scrupulously curated by MACLA: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Art and photography by various Latin-American contributors. Text by various specialist/contributors. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the landmark turn-of-the-century retrospective exhibition of the same name held in 2001 under the auspices of the Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americana (MACLA), which was made possible with funding from the Andy Warhol Foundation For The Visual Arts. The exhibition and this accompanying monograph celebrate the world-class achievement of Latin-American art in our time. Surely among its most celebrated artist/practitioners is Luis Gonzalez Palma, whose work is presented as a doublespread with brief commentary by him. "I am a postmodern Romantic" (Luis Gonzalez Palma). There are few equally eye-opening and enriching introductions to the vibrant, innovative, and exquisite works presented in this book. An absolute "must-have" title for Luis Gonzalez Palma and contemporary Latin-American art and photography collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on his Contribution (underneath the image) by Luis Gonzalez Palma. This title is a contemporary art and photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Exhibition Monograph available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. Some of the greatest living artist/photographers. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LUIS GONZALEZ PALMA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). $70.00
