RubberMade: Sculpture by Chakaia Booker $18.00

96 pages, 24 color plates and numerous details, 10.5 x 7.8125 inches, ISBN: 978-1-891246-16-6, Library of Congress Control Number: 2007941131, published May 2008, Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art

This 96-page, hard-bound catalogue complements the Kemper Museum's exhibition RubberMade: Sculpture by Chakaia Booker, a survey of 24 works, created since 2000 by the American artist. (RubberMade is on view June–August 17, 2008.) Since the early 1990s, Chakaia Booker has worked almost exclusively with recycled tires. Through a physically demanding process of twisting, slicing, and weaving found rubber tires (primarily from bikes, cars, and farm equipment), she forms dynamic, whimsical sculptures that fuse ecological concerns with questions about racial and economic differences, globalization, and existing sociopolitical power structures.

The full-color catalogue features an essay by exhibition curator and Kemper Museum Curator Christopher Cook and an interview between the artist and Valerie Cassel Oliver, curator of the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston. The catalogue also includes a foreword by Kemper Museum Director Rachael Blackburn Cozad, artist biography, and exhibition checklist. $29.95
