One of the most continuously influential figures of the past half century, Joan Jonas (born 1936) was among the first artists to embrace the forms of video, performance and installation. From her beginnings as a sculptor, and her emergence in the New York art and performance scenes of the 1960s and 70s (including the seminal "Vertical Roll" video piece of 1972, in which the titular television malfunction enacted a memorably fractured female identity), up through her performance at the Performa 09 biennial and recent collaborations with composer Alvin Lucier and the avant-garde theater company The Wooster Group, her work has always been surprising, groundbreaking and necessary. This extensively illustrated volume, containing hundreds of full-color images, presents the definitive collection of Jonas' work. The first career-spanning monograph of the multimedia pioneer, it covers more than 40 years of performances, films, videos, installations, texts and video sculptures. In addition to documentation of the artist's crucial projects, In the Shadow a Shadowincludes individual essays by Douglas Crimp, Barbara Clausen and Johanna Burton, a major survey text by Joan Simon, and unpublished photographs and drawings from Jonas' archives. This intensively researched and authoritative book documents the range, breadth and depth of one of most prolifically original artists of the twentieth and twenty-first century.
