As poetic as he is controversial, the renowned Argentinean Conceptualist Leon Ferrari (who was forced to live in exile in Brazil from 1976 to 1991, and who won a Golden Lion award at the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007) is known for his fierce criticism of power and religion--both as an artist and as a journalist. This first major retrospective monograph brings together a selection of heliographs, drawings and collages which fiercely criticize Argentinean dictatorship, conservative religion and American authority--among many other heavily loaded subjects. It also features a selection of recent works, produced between 2004 and 2008, which include his well-known polyurethane sculptures. Throughout, Ferrari's work shuns quiet, undisturbed or serene contemplation, instead loudly joining denouncement with beauty, bliss with anguish, joy with fury. With scholarly essays by distinguished experts, an in-depth interview and a selection of texts by Ferrari himself.
