This is prepublication variant of artist's book / exhibition catalogue published by JRP Ringier and Kunsthalle Zürich in conjunction with show held at Kunsthalle, Zürich, April 8 - May 28, 2006. Texts by Beatrix Ruf, John Kelsey, Bettina Funcke, Johanna Burton, Jay Sanders, Josh Smith, and Fia Backström. "This publication marks a show that occurred in 2006 in Zurich. Until the real color catalog is printed by the Kunsthalle Zurich, this high quality black and white reproduction will suffice. Curated by Beatrix Ruf at Kunstalle Zurich, this exhibition showcased the work of Wade Guyton, Seth Price, Josh Smith, and Kelley Walker. The show took place in the summer of 2006 and the people who saw it mostly remember it." -- publisher's statement.
