This exhibition catalog accompanies the major retrospective Rachel Whiteread at the National Gallery of Art, and explores a range of themes in Whiteread’s remarkable practice, from childhood memory to the horrors of the Holocaust.


Rachel Whiteread is known for her psychologically charged works that use negative space to conjure feelings of isolation, domesticity, alienation, and personal and public history. This book showcases all of Whiteread’s major works over the past 30 years, from her early Ghost—in which she virtually turned a small London flat inside out—to her recent Cabin—a similarly constructed concrete cabin on New York City’s Governors Island. Essays explore a range of themes in Whiteread’s practice, from the personal to the public. Beautifully designed and filled with full-color illustrations of the artist’s works, this is a comprehensive overview of an artist who has single-handedly expanded the boundaries of contemporary sculpture.
