From the publisher: "Lawler is fascinated by what happens to the art object after it leaves the artist's studio--where it goes, how it's displayed, how it's values, what it means. In a Lawler photograph taken in a private home, the furnishings and objects surrounding the art are given as much attention as the art; in a museum, the view out of a window nest to the artwork; in an auction house, the label identifying the artwork. Lawler shows us how the environment that surrounds it affects our perception of art and how it, in turn, affects all aspects of that environment."
