    ...i don't think there's any definitive website or a book yet.
    pbs has a little thing on their website, plus a show feature on him on art21 with margaret k.(rip)...
  3. I can only think of 12ozprophet 'twist issue' and a Juxtapose issue, covering mostly that museum instalation.

    I might have a copy of it somewhere, I'll look around. I'm sure eventually we'll post it. Funny the topic came up, I was chilling with Barry last night at the Dietch Gallery.

    he was saying in the Giant Robot interview that the galleries will go to a junkyard for him, take digital photos of a bunch of trucks, email hte pictures, then he picks which one he wants. the gallery people then go back to the junk yard and buy it for his show. the article had a picture of truck turned upside-down with a dope Amaze bomb on it.

    there are two barry mcgee books out, 'the buddy system' and an expensive-ish monograph. both came out (in this country) in 2002. i've not had a chance to look at them yet, just seen them at magmabooks.com. i've no idea if they're available in other countries...
