Demetrius Oliver: Canicular explores Oliver's career and his extraordinary installation at The Print Center, which was on view from January - March, 2014. The innovative exhibition of newly commissioned works transformed The Print Center's galleries and included a live telescope projection of Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky. The meticulously crafted book recalls antique guidebooks and was designed by Jeff Ramsey, who has designed recent publications for exhibitions of Matthew Barney, Jeff Koons and Yoko Ono, in close conversation with Oliver. Publication of Demetrius Oliver: Canicular was supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Essays by John Caperton, Jensen Bryan Curator, The Print Center; Derrick Pitts, Chief Astronomer, Franklin Institute; and Michelle White, Curator, The Menil Collection.
