Famed artist Robert Therrien has won worldwide acclaim over the last three decades for his imposing sculptures and room installations. But he has also built up a rich oeuvre of drawings, prints, photography and paintings, and now this exhibition catalogue from the Kunstmuseum Basel showcases the full and fascinating range of his work.

Represented in the permanent collections of world-renowned museums, including the Tate Modern and Centre Georges Pompidou, the works of Robert Therrien are enigmatically complex and elude classification. Robert Therrien now reveals the compelling power of Therrien’s art, demonstrating how he draws upon everyday objects such as dishware and furniture, architectural elements, and other unique inspirations to create his art. An in-depth essay by Christian Müller considers how the subtlety and humor of Thierren’s works emerge from their spare simplicity and the precision of the objects’ physical arrangement and appearance.

Richly illustrated and unprecedented in its comprehensive breadth, Robert Therrien: Work on Paper will be a welcome addition to the shelves of collectors and historians of contemporary art.
