The first significant survey to explore the career of Matt Keegan, the New York– based artist known for his work across mediums and as co-founding editor of the acclaimed art journal North Drive Press, this monograph also expands on his recent solo exhibition in Norway (2015) for which the artist remade his sheetrock and steel sculptures from 2006–15 in cardboard. Essays and interviews by Tom McDonough, John Miller, Sara VanDerBeek and Anna Craycroft, Uri Aran, Leslie Hewitt and James Richards frame Keegan’s production and ongoing engagement. Full-color installation photos and repro- ductions of his work introduce and provide a layered overview of the artist’s multifac- eted practice. Rooted in Keegan’s strong interest in language as it relates to cognition, communication and exchange, his sculptures include familiar phrases and translate open-ended phrases into iconic signage to highlight its materiality. In collections of the Guggenheim, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and included in the New Museum’s pivotal inaugural triennial, The Generational: Younger than Jesus.
