New York–based artist Anne Collier (b. 1970) creates seemingly straightforward images of pop-cultural objects that address both the practice and history of photography while simultaneously critiquing clichés and uncovering hidden truths. This volume, part of the MCA Monograph series, accompanies the first major solo, US exhibition of Collier’s work. Michael Darling, James W. Alsdorf Chief Curator at the MCA, surveys Collier’s photographs of the past decade to analyze their artistic influences and thematic connections; Chrissie Iles, Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art, examines the artist’s position within photographic and cinematic history; and novelist Kate Zambreno delves into identity and self-portraiture, collection, and obsession.
