Title: Multi-media (Video - Installation - Performance)
Author: Kaye, Nick
Price: $63.99

"As much an art book as a scholarly work, "Multi-media" combines sophisticated, well-informed scholarship with artists' pages that transcend mere illustration to become a catalogue for a virtual exhibition. In terms of both subject and format, it's a worthy companion to Kaye's "Site-Specific Art"." - Phil Auslander, Georgia Institute of Technology.

"Multi-media" charts the development of multi-media video, installation and performance in a unique dialogue between theoretical analysis and specially commissioned documentations by some of the world's foremost artists.

Nick Kaye explores the interdisciplinary history and character of experimental practices shaped in exchanges between music, installation, theatre, performance art, conceptual art, sculpture and video.

The book sets out key themes and concerns in multi-media practice, addressing Time, Space, the resurgence of ephemerality, liveness and 'aura'. These chapters are interspersed with documentary artwork and essays by artists whose work continues to shape the field, including new articles from: Vito Acconci; the Builders Association; John Jesurun; Pipilotti Rist; and, Fiona Templeton.

"Multi-media" also reintroduces a major documentary essay by Paolo Rosa of Studio Azzurro in a new, fully illustrated form. This book combines sophisticated scholarly analysis and fascinating original work to present a refreshing and creative investigation of current multi-media arts practice.
