A lavishly illustrated, 384-page catalogue, William N. Copley, published by Fondazione Prada in association with the Menil Collection, accompanies the exhibition, “William N. Copley: The World According to CPLY." The exhibition is currently open at the Menil Collection through July 24, and then travels to the Fondazione Prada in Milan which opens October 18.
Edited by Germano Celant, the catalogue includes an exhaustive chronology of the artist’s life and career as well as essays by Gwen L. Allen, Celant, Paul B. Franklin, Alison M. Gingeras, Jonathan Griffin, and exhibition co-curator Toby Kamps. The texts explore Copley’s life not only as an artist but also as a dealer, collector, writer, journalist, and publisher. The book includes nearly 600 full-color illustrations and will be distributed worldwide.
