This multimedia boxed set presents a sweeping look at work by pioneering German painter Albert Oehlen (b. 1954), one of the most energetic and significant artists working today. Deeply influenced by literature, music, film, and graphic design, Oehlen’s paintings are the result of a complex layering of methods, subject matter, and viewpoints. This distinctive set contains a catalogue of the winter 2016--17 exhibition at the Cleveland Museum of Art as well as an anthology of texts and images edited by Christopher Williams, a poster, and a vinyl record with a new work by composer and musician Michael Wertmüller, reflecting Oehlen’s singular approach to art-making and the collaborative nature of this publication.

Albert Oehlen lives and works in Bühler, Switzerland. Reto Thüring is co-chief curator and curator of contemporary art at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Michael Wertmüller is a Swiss musician and composer based in Berlin. Christopher Williams is an artist and professor of photography at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, Germany.
