French-fold card wraps, 20.2 by 27.9 cm, 76 pp., heavily illus. in full color. Very good with minor wear to the edges and extremities. Scarce exhibition guide for this well-known Michigan artist which “presents fifteen mixed-media wall pieces and a floor installation that reexamine some of the themes Guyton as grappled with for over thirty years the—the passage of time, adapting to change, the plight of the poor and disenfranchised, abuses of political power, race in America, and the paradoxes of organized religion. Some of his iconic images, in particular his whimsical clocks and his assemblages of shoes, are given new significance as they are deployed to interrogate the nature of time and the challenges facing humanity as it moves through time. Tyree Guyton is perhaps best known as the creator of the Heidelberg Project, a dynamic outdoor art installation covering two city blocks in the Paradise Valley neighborhood of Southeast Detroit […] Guyton’s new work builds on his well-known Heidelberg Project, which addresses important social and economic challenges that Detroit has faced over the last fifty years. The exhibit marks a key moment of transition for Guyton as he shifts his attention from the Heidelberg Project, to which he has devoted the last thirty years, to the studio.”
