This book brings together the documentation of seven installations, produced by Corin Hewitt from 2007 up to the 2013, including preparatory sketches, process shots, exhibition documentation, and discrete photographic works. This visual mass helps understand Hewitt's practice as a continuum of interconnected actions and materializations, instances of generative discovery and contextual play.
The performative installations of Corin Hewitt (born 1971 in Burlington, VT, lives and works in Richmond, VA) use exhibition spaces as sites for production. Integrating process and display strategies, Hewitt offers viewers the simultaneous encounter of an artwork and the action that brought it to be. Solo exhibitions of his work have been held at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Atlanta Contemporary Art Center; and Western Bridge, Seattle. In 2011, he was awarded a Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship for Fine Art.
