Allan McCollum's work is characterized by serial production. Whether it's a question of sculptures, drawings or photographs, each of his works form collections, ensembles ranging from a few objects all the way to several thousand. The seriality present in McCollum's work reflects his desire to break with the traditional criterion of the rarity of artworks. However, behind the apparent massificiation of his work, McCollum preserves the uniqueness of each element via the differentiation of his ensemble through subtle variations.
Born in 1944, Los Angeles, California. He lives and work in New York.
The works of Allan McCollum feature in the collections of some of the most prominent museum such as the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York), the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), the Musée National d'Art Moderne, the Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), the Musée d'art moderne et contemporain de Genève (Switzerland) and the Castello di Rivoli (Italy).
