A survey of sculpture, installations, and photographs from throughout the artist’s career, When Now Is Night demonstrates how Boyce reinterprets or transforms iconic examples of 20th-century design and everyday phenomena to explore the psychological, social, and emotional dynamics of our relationships to the objects and buildings that surround us. Features texts by the artist; Dominic Molon, exhibition curator and Richard Brown Baker Curator of Contemporary Art at the RISD Museum; critic and curator Russell Ferguson; and British artist John Stezaker.

This volume complements the exhibition Martin Boyce: When Now Is Night, shown at the RISD Museum October 2, 2015 through January 31, 2016.

Copublished in 2015 by Princeton Architectural Press and the RISD Museum.
