Hirschhorn forms his sculptures from the detritus of urban life, ranging from scraps of wood, tape, and plastic, to aluminum foil. The results are seemingly casual, chaotic, obsessive, and excessive environments reformed by the artists unique sense of materials, wry wit, and profound commitment to issues of social justice. Presenting his most recent piece, World Airport, as well as an entirely new installation, this book features essays by Okwui Enwezor, James Rondeau, and Hamza Walker that explore the conception and construction of these works and situate them in the artists oeuvre and beyond.

The Art Institute of Chicago and The Renaissance Society of Chicago are cooperating in presenting this catalogue and museum exhibition, Hirschhorns first in the United States.
