Charles Atlas

27 × 28 cm
304 pages

Developed in close collaboration with the artist, this vivid book captures the movement and pace of Charles Atlas’s celebrated and highly collaborative time-based art. Looking back at a career that has spanned four decades, this beautiful volume profiles over 75 projects by Charles Atlas – including works recently exhibited at Tate Modern and the 2012 Whitney Biennial. As one of the first artists to explore the possibilities of video as a genre of expression, and especially through his long-lasting collaboration with Merce Cunningham, Atlas has teamed with numerous dancers and artists to create projects that range from feature-length documentaries to shorter media works, transforming the way performance is viewed by its audiences and the art world. In this inventive publication, Atlas’s own commentary accompanies exquisite images that capture the structure and flow of his work in film, video, dance, and performance. The volume also includes interviews between Atlas and a number of writers and collaborators who have played a critical role in the development and reception of his oeuvre, as well as an array of fascinating ephemera from the artist’s personal archives.
