A critical examination of Mike Kelley and John Miller, influential American artists whose strategies and subversive humor are built on a foundation of formal rigor and adherence to the principles of art history. Author Roy Arden deftly juxtaposes Kelley's popular culture-based installations, against the often coarse sculptural work of Miller. Text and images offer insight into these artists, and the startling ways they have interpreted the American psyche. Exhibition catalog, includes 1 b&w and 19 color reproductions.
