Price: €9 (Out of stock)

Published on the occasion of the exhibition John Knight – Some Works, 7 April – 20 May 1990 at Witte de With, Rotterdam. Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Knight’s Moves: Situating the Art/Object Anne Rorimer, John Knight: Designating the Site

Since 1969, American artist John Knight (1945) has concentrated on the relationship between architecture, design and art. He bases his work on the interplay between the material object and its contextual conditions, and comments on the meaning of cultural object and cultural space by employing strategies that invert the conventions of production and reception.
