Pippa Garner: Act Like You Know Me

$ 50.00

The first comprehensive monograph and critical survey of American artist Pippa Garner, ACT LIKE YOU KNOW ME, surveys fifty years of her radical and trans-disciplinary art practice, from the late 1960's to the early 2010's, through ca. 400 photographs, illustrations, ephemera, and original writings.

Encompassing Garner's most iconic works, from the Backward Car to the Half-Suit, alongside never-before-seen photographs and ephemera, ACT LIKE YOU KNOW ME serves to introduce a highly-influential, under-recognized artist whose uncompromising approach to life and practice has allowed her to interact with the worlds of illustration, editorial, television, and art without ever becoming beholden to them.

Born in the suburbs of Chicago in 1942, the artist formerly know as Philip Garner has satirized American-style consumerism for decades, reifying the joys of everyday life and personal liberation along her way.

With her prankish sense of humor and conceptual dedication to experimental engineering, she has altered materials of mass production - from Fordism through the pharmacopornographic - subverting commercial binaries to reveal the transitory nature of material life and her own transpersonal identity.
