STEPHANIE BARRON is Senior Curator and Head of the Department of Modern Art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
"If there's a more beautiful museum exhibition catalog than LACMA's Ken Price Sculpture: A Retrospective, I haven't seen it. Exquisitely designed by Lorraine Wild and featuring knockout new photographs by Fredrik Nilson of every work in the show, the book sets a standard of excellence that matches Price's extraordinary art." - The Los Angeles Times "Thanks in part to the much-touted photographs by Ken Price's work by Fredrik Nilsen, Ken Price Sculpture: A Retrospective was the most beautiful exhibition catalogue of the year." - Tyler Green, Modern Art Notes "[A] masterpiece, one of the best artist monographs in years, guided by LACMA senior curator of modern art Stephanie Barron's fierce professionalism and exceptional scholarship. It not only celebrates Price's art (the color reproductions in the book are electric), but the text makes a lucid, irrefutable argument for Price's inclusion in the canon of great American artists." - American Craft Council "Does this book deserve praise from every direction? It does. .Not just another look-book for collectors, this extensive collection of photographs includes exhibition shots, glimpses into Price's studio and stunning landscapes of Taos, New Mexico, the site of Price's larger workshop." - The Art Book Review "In Ken Price Sculpture his colorful, modestly scaled, exceptionally photogenic ceramic sculptures appear in reverse chronological order .Price's fans will particularly appreciate the numerous photographs of his works in different states of completion in this book." - The New York Times" " If there's any justice in the world, [this catalogue] will win awards for its arresting style." --Art in America
