Ryan Gander: Culturefield
Ryan Gander’s work ranges across a dizzying spectrum of forms and ideas.
His meticulously researched projects—which have included such diverse conceptual gestures as an invented word, a chess set, a television script, and a children’s book—engage familiar historical narratives and cultural paradigms only to unravel their structures and assumptions, presenting elusive scenarios that abound with interpretive potential.
Published to coincide with the exhibition Ryan Gander: Make every show like it’s your last at Manchester Art Gallery, July 3–September 14, 2014, this substantial volume surveys his diverse oeuvre.
