Published by Ikon Gallery to coincide with Ryan Gander’s 2006 exhibition, Heralded as the New Black, at the South London Gallery.
The solo exhibition by acclaimed artist Ryan Gander comprised a new body of work made during a ‘year off’ from exhibiting and included a number of works made exclusively for the South London Gallery (SLG) space. Organised in partnership with Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, the exhibition consisted of entirely new installations, interventions, films and by-products which derive meaning from their location and context. The exhibition was a diverse and playful investigation into facets of the making, presentation, history and documentation of art and design.
This catalogue was the first to articulate a critical in-depth examination of his practice.
