This comprehensive monograph explores the conceptual complexity and diversity of Claes Oldenburg’s early work to reveal this influential artist’s extraordinary inventiveness. Accompanying an exhibition of Oldenburg’s seminal early work, this publication examines the breadth of his artistic career from the late 1950s to 1970. It features works including the landmark installations The Street and The Store and their accompanying performances; the highly influential spectacular sculptures of everyday objects as well as drawings and preparatory collages for public projects from the 1960s.
