Summary note
"... this publication reflects on the artist's commissioned works that inaugurate the new Dia Chelsea, New York, which opened in April 2021. Her installation of kinetic light sculptures, Casters X-2 + Casters X3 (2021), and immersive film installation Ready Mix (2021) address the formation and depiction of landscapes and civic spaces, particularly those in the western United States. The publication's design, created in close consultation with the artist, is inspired by trade magazines Raven encountered during the production of these works. The inside cover, designed by the artist, features a collage of other forms of visual inspiration. Essays by Lucy R. Lippard, Alexis Lowry, and Raven contextualize the work and reflect on the fraught history and mythology of the Wild West. A conversation between the artist and the film's sound designer Deantoni Parks delves into their collaborative working process. Mónica de la Torre contributed a hybrid poetry-prose work in response to the commission." -- www.diaart.org (viewed December 16, 2021)
