This is a first edition paperback of Ralph Rugoff's Scene of the Crime Catalog for the 1997 Exhibit at the Armand and Hammer Museum (ISBN 13: 97802626809980), published by The MIT Press. This show surveyed thirty-five years of West Coast art, investigating aesthetic practices that address the art object as a kind of evidence and suggest that a significant segment of contemporary art demands a forensic reading. Included are works by Ed Ruscha, Bruce Nauman, Barry Le Va, Vija Celmins, Paul McCarthy, James Luna, Anthony Hernandez, and Sharon Lockhart. Essays are by Ralph Rugoff, Anthony Vidler and Peter Wollen. This book measures 9.5" by 6.75" and contains 167 pages with 107 black & white and color photographs. This Scene of the Crime Catalog for the 1997 Exhibit at the Armand and Hammer Museum is in good condition. Both covers have some shelf wear. However, the pages are clean and the spine is intact.
