First published in 1966, and since translated into 16 languages, this remarkable book has become an essential document of architectural literature. A “gentle manifesto for a nonstraightforward architecture,” Venturi’s Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture expresses in the most compelling and original terms the postmodern rebellion against the purism of modernism. Three hundred and fifty architectural photographs serve as historical comparisons and illuminate the author’s ideas on creating and experiencing architecture.

Orienting himself firmly in the media-present, New York artist Jonathan Horowitz replays the recent past in the incarnations of our times. This reprisal occurs particularly in video works such as “Maxell,” in which the name of the now obsolete videotape company is worn down to a VHS blur, and “The Soul of Tammi Terrell,” in which 1960s footage of the eponymous pop star singing “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” is juxtaposed with Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon’s rendition of the song in the 1998 film Stepmom. Horowitz himself makes no overt political critique, but always ensures that the work’s underlying edge is laid plainly before the viewer. Queer and ecological themes also abound, as does sly humor and a Warholian detachment. This is the first thorough survey of Horowitz’s work.
