Wade Guyton is best known for his large-scale canvas paintings made with a conventional inkjet printer, which feature iconic subjects such as flames, the letters X and U, and the New York Times website. On the occasion of this major retrospective exhibition, Museum Ludwig has published a comprehensive catalogue of the artist's solo exhibitions, including images of all works accompanied by short texts and floor plans.

Yil­maz Dziewior, Di­rec­tor of the Mu­se­um Lud­wig: “The aim of this ret­ro­spec­tive is to give a sense of the com­plex­i­ty of Wade Guy­ton’s oeu­vre, show­ing the artist to be far more than just an ex­cep­tio­n­al pain­ter. His prac­tice is dee­p­ly root­ed in a con­cep­tu­al ap­proach. For all the clas­si­cal­i­ty of his works, with their broad net­work of ref­er­ences to pre­cur­sors in the his­to­ry of art, Guy­ton al­ways sur­pris­es with new and un­ex­pect­ed changes of di­rec­tion.”

Foreword by Yilmaz Dziewor (curator), essays by Johanna Burton, Michelle Kuo, Kerstin Stakemeier, and a conversation between the artist and Yilmaz Dziewor.
