Paul Chan : The 7 Lights

Paul Chan : The 7 Lights

Description

The American artist Paul Chan has gained international acclaim for his video work, drawings and installations that blend a novel drafting aesthetic with philosophical reflections on politics, religion, sex and life. This beautifully produced monograph, published on the occasion of Chan's highly anticipated one-person exhibition at New York's recently unveiled New Museum of Contemporary Art, presents the first significant overview of his work. Spanning from the late 1990s through today, it is named for Chan's most recent project, "The 7 Lights" (2005-07), a series of large-scale digital projections and drawings that "hallucinate" the Seven Days of Creation.
Paul Chan was born in Hong Kong in 1973 and raised in Nebraska. Currently based in New York, he is represented by Greene Naftali Gallery and has had solo museum exhibitions at The Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia; the Blanton Museum of Art, Austin; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; and the UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles.
