Exhibition catalogue published in conjunction with show held at The Menil Collection, September 16, 2011 - January 8, 2012. Edited by Josef Helfenstien; With contributions by Clare Elliott and Josef Helfenstein. "American artist Walter De Maria is associated with Minimal, conceptual, installation, and land art. He is best known for 'The Lightning Field,' 1977, a long-term installation in western New Mexico made up of four hundred pointed stainless steel poles arranged in a grid over an area measuring one mile by one kilometer. Despite the role he has played in contemporary art over the past fifty years, few books have been dedicated to the artist. Featuring new paintings and sculptures and never before published texts, this volume explores in detail the works in the artist's first major museum exhibition in the United States: 'Walter De Maria: Trilogies' at the Menil Collection." -- publisher's statement.
