Description - Billboard by Laura Steward Heon

This work accompanies the exhibition of artists' billboards that opens the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art's inaugural season. It features descriptions and colour images of the historic and new billboards, as well as almost 300 short entries giving a broad survey of the medium. The book also contains three essays. In "Disturbances in the Field of Mammon: Toward a History of Artists' Billboards", Harriet Senie finds precursors for contemporary billboards in European art posters (Toulouse-Latrec), modern political posters (Rodchenko), and war billboards ("Uncle Sam Wants You").
