Title: Kim Abeles : Encyclopedia Persona a-Z
Description: Santa Monica, Santa-Monica Museum of Art. 1993, Exhibition Catalog. Hard Cover. Fine. Text: English. 110 p.; ill.; 19 x 25,5 cm; 500g. Kim Abeles was born in Richmond Heights, Missouri in 1952. " My work from the past two decades results from the urban experience, chronicling historical and contemporary issues housed in sculpture and installation. Data gathering, library research, and experimentation with unconventional materials are predominant methods of investigation in my artworks' development. I typically approach social issues through "portraits" of individuals transformed into broader themes; or, I create sculptural contraptions to collect visual or auditory data over an extended period of time. In both cases, the collected "facts" become elements from which I create artworks, and the process itself is materialized. The urban environment, feminism, aging, HIV/AIDS, and labor are some of the specific issues I have engaged through my work. In all cases, materials and form are inspired connections to my intellectual pursuits. I am a concept-seeker and an object-maker. The work emerges from my hands as both feminine and masculine, seeking objective and subjective realities, and spoken in a visual language of the poetic spirit. " - Kim Abeles: Encyclopedia Persona, A Fifteen-Year Survey was initiated and sponsored by the Fellows of Contemporary Art in 1993, as a mid-career survey curated by Karen Moss and organized by the Santa Monica Museum of Art. Following its United States venues, the exhibition began its tour of South America funded by the United States Information Agency (U.S.I.A.), opening at the National Museum of Fine Arts in Santiago, Chile and culminating in 1997 at the Centro Cultural Consolidado, Caracas. Edition: 2000. Perfect copy. (ISBN: 0911291229)
