A Material Legacy: The Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Collection of Contemporary Art (Duke University Press) is the catalogue for the eponymous exhibition at the Princeton University Art Museum in 2016.
Comprised of more than 30 large-scale works in two- and three-dimensions and drawn entirely from the Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Collection, A Material Legacy is a multi-generational exhibition that illustrates the material impulse found in contemporary art-making practices. Nearly all of the works in the exhibition have been made in the previous decade, providing an almost real-time glimpse into the varied approaches and innovative techniques of art being made in the second decade of the 21st century. The exhibition reveals the various ways in which contemporary artists manifest a material tendency, from the politically-charged works of Ivan Navarro and Kara Walker, the formal complexity of Tony Cragg, and the ascetic repetition of Sol Lewitt, to the colorful exuberance of Katharina Grosse and Elliot Hundley, among many others.
