Museum of Failure - Ellen Harvey
Taking its title from the ongoing project featured in the 2008 Whitney Biennial, Gregory R. Miller & Co.’s Ellen Harvey: Museum of Failure is the first retrospective publication on the artist's work, looking at each of the major projects she's undertaken in the last 16 years. Harvey's practice incorporates painting, photography, video, installation, and public participation to examine our expectations about art and cultural production, their proper contexts and what constitutes appropriate engagement, all with a disarming charm. The book includes a major new text on the artist by curator Henriette Huldisch and a wide-ranging conversation between the artist and Adam Budak, curator of the National Museum, Prague. Fully illustrated with color images of nearly every work Harvey has produced, and beautifully designed by the award-winning studio Project Projects, Ellen Harvey: The Museum of Failure documents the development of this highly original artist.
