Sean Landers: 1990–1995, Improbable History




Published by JRP|Ringier, Zürich, 2011 with the support of the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis and the support of the Ringier Collection, Zürich. 

This comprehensive monograph was published on the occasion of the exhibition Sean Landers: 1990–1994, Improbable History at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, from January 22 to April 11, 2010, curated by Laura Fried and Paul Ha. Edited by Cynthia Daignault, Paul Ha, and Michelle Reyes Landers. Texts by Michael Bilsborough, Cynthia Daignault, Paul Ha, Matthew Higgs, Dominic Molon, João Ribas, and Andrea K. Scott.

The publication focuses on the formative years between 1990 and 1995 in which Landers articulates his persona through media as various as paintings, diaristic calendar drawings, and performative videos, providing the reader with an unflinching excavation of the artist’s consciousness. In his relentless articulation of emotion at its most base and its most noble, Landers foregrounds the personality of the artist as an object worthy of study.
