Sower of Discord
Features written contributions by
Raymond Pettibon, Dave Eggers, Spike Jonze, and Bradley Bailey
Created in full collaboration with the artist, Marcel Dzama: Sower of Discord (Abrams; $65.00) is the first comprehensive survey of Dzama’s work. More than five hundred color images trace his artistic evolution from the mid-1990s, when he first attracted critical attention while an art student in Winnipeg, to the present. Written contributions include a foreword by the contemporary artist Raymond Pettibon; three original short stories inspired by Dzama’s work by Dave Eggers; an interview with the artist by the filmmaker Spike Jonze; and an essay by the art historian Bradley Bailey. These diverse writings provide a foundation for understanding Dzama’s work within the personal and cultural context in which he makes it.
