The work of Vito Acconci (born 1940) is among the most influential of the last 30 years. His experiments with performance, audio and video, sculpture, and architecture from the late 1960s through the present have become points of reference for younger artists. The overriding concerns throughout his work have been self-analysis and interpersonal relationships, themes he has explored in many different ways. This monograph is the most complete publication available on Acconci who is one of the most rigorous and influential American artists to come out of the conceptualist movement. It includes both extensive visual documentation from throughout his career and a wide selection of his writings. With essays by Vito Acconci and Gloria Moure. Among the many public institutions that have hosted solo exhibitions of his work in the United States are the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Museum of Modern Art, New York.
