Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692535047, Hardcover)

Walkers explores the reimagining and recycling of Hollywood iconography in contemporary art and the way that movies live on in our personal and cultural memories. Looking at a diverse range of artists and filmmakers, including Francis Alÿs, Richard Avedon, Fiona Banner, Jean-Luc Godard, Michel Gondry, Douglas Gordon, Alex Israel, Martin Kippenberger, Richard Prince, Ed Ruscha, Leanne Shapton and Weegee, Walkers surveys how art has appropriated and redefined some of the 20th century’s most iconic films. Artworks are joined by rare film ephemera ranging from costume designs for Rosemary’s Baby to the complete original key book stills from The 39 Steps. With a nod to the “walkers,” or zombies, from the TV series The Walking Dead, the catalogue’s title references the lingering power of film on the imagination of the living.
