Copublished with Gagosian, this is the first book devoted to the work of a major contemporary artist, with a focus on his painting.

Houston-based artist Rick Lowe is widely known for his pioneering contributions to the development of "social practice art," work that landed him a MacArthur fellowship in 2014. What few people realize is that he was originally trained as a landscape painter. In recent years, Lowe has increasingly turned back to painting, producing complex multi-panel and quasi-abstract images that are deeply rooted in thirty years of work creating "social sculptures," recalling the urban fabric of cities around the world that have formed the backdrop of many of his community-based art projects. This book, which brilliantly reproduces Lowe's paintings, is the first dedicated to the work of this important American artist, focusing on his painterly practice and its origins in his work in the public sphere.

Dieter Roelstraete is the curator at the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society.

Antwaun Sargent is a director and curator at Gagosian.
