A critical examination of the work of one of the most significant and original sculptors and installation artists living today
Jamaican-born Nari Ward is best known for his large-scale sculptures and installations, many of which are created from unexpected materials collected around his urban neighborhood. His incisive works frequently comment on issues surrounding race, poverty, consumerism, and diasporic identity in American culture.
This book accompanies a major retrospective at the New Museum, highlighting his work from the early 1990s - including Amazing Grace (1993).
This book is the latest in Phaidon's collaborative publishing with the New Museum, following titles on Thomas Bayrle, Sarah Lucas, Raymond Pettibon, Pipilotti Rist, and Anri Sala.
