Toba Khedoori’s exquisitely crafted and tantalizingly ambiguous drawings and paintings are the subject of this monograph, This publication is issued on the occasion of the exhibition Toba Khedoori on view at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art from September 25, 2016 through March 19, 2017.
This book documents the artistic development of Toba Khedoori, a MacArthur “Genius” Award recipient who skillfully combines precise draftsmanship with a meditative quality, and who manages to invite viewers inside her works, despite their two-dimensionality. Whether drawing on sheets of paper primed with wax and stapled directly onto the wall or using canvas as physical support, Khedoori creates delicate compositions that are at once intimate and expansive. Over the past decade, she has shifted toward smaller-scale works while continuing to engage elements of drawing, painting, and installation.
Edited by Franklin Sirmans and Lisa Gabrielle Mark, with contributions from Aruna D ' Souza, Ann Goldstein, Brenda Shaunessy, Franklin Sirmans and Lucas Zwirner.
