Richard Jackson


UNEX­PECTED UNEX­PLAINED UNAC­CEPTED - Galerie Georges-Philippe & Nathalie Vallois

More than any other artist of his day Richard Jackson has focused his atten­tion on the radical expan­sion of painting. For the first time the Schirn is assem­bling five of his 12 exten­sive instal­la­tions. In his Rooms, comic-like figures, animals or objects become actors involved in a unique process: Air compres­sors and pumps cause rich colors to flow through tubes and funnels, through ears, mouths and other body orifices and spread them across the floor, walls, furnish­ings and figures. The publi­ca­tion takes up Jackson’s painterly process and guides the reader through the rooms with their ever-changing perspec­tives and bright colors. Essays by author Chris Kidd, art histo­rian Chris­tian Janecke and curator Matthias Ulrich place the works by the Cali­fornian artist in context and high­light impor­tant links with art, poli­tics and history.

TIP Thanks to the detailed texts on the indi­vidual rooms and instal­la­tions as well as the compre­hen­sive photo­graphic docu­men­ta­tion, readers can enjoy discov­ering ever new details and connec­tions to the history of art and current events.
