"I saw a painting of yours recently and it made me realize that we have one thing in common: our paintings are not trying to look modern."— Albert Oehlen in conversation with Christopher Wool

The bold, contemporary typeface and mix of installation images and plates precedes a more classically designed conversation and text to accompany Albert Oehlen's large-scale painting show at Gagosian New York. The cloth bound book, with cover image tip-on, and a mix of papers, lend these recent works a classical treatment.

"That's the crux. It's always about rejecting what you think you know."— Christopher Wool in conversation with Albert Oehlen
