Dario Escobar: The Life of the object covers two
decades of this singular artist’s work, while highlighting
profound insights into the nature of found
objects, commodity culture, and contemporary
art’s increasing identification with the myths
and realities of globalization. Edited by Christian
Viveros-Fauné, the book includes an introduction
by Viveros-Fauné and insightful essays by R.C.
Baker, Laura A.L. Wellen, and Octavio Zaya. The
volume also includes plates especially created by
the artist that illustrates some of Escobar’s more
important recent sculptures and installations.
