Episodes with Wayne Thiebaud

There's nothing so satisfying for me as hearing or reading an artist unfurling the tangled strands of their art history, biography and ideas in casual conversation. In the case of Wayne Thiebaud in Black Square Editions' new release, Episodes with Wayne Thiebaud, it's doubly satisfying since, despite the seeming ubiquity of his images, the man himself has mostly remained silent, preferring the paintings to speak for themselves. Two former students, the painters Eve Aschheim and Chris Dauber, set out to remedy this via four lengthy interviews (the titular episodes) from 2009 to 2011. Thiebaud emerges as voluble, modest, and quietly cool on these pages, as he recounts his early days in Sacramento, his visits to New York, and his own pantheon of art historical heroes, about whom he is insightful and, even at age 93, with whom he is still clearly enamored.

ART AND PHOTO BOOK PUBLISHERS

Metropolis Books

Metropolis Books publishes timely, thought-provoking, useful, and beautiful books that explore how design shapes culture, even as culture shapes the designed environment at every scale. Books focus on contemporary issues in architecture, urbanism, preservation, interior design, product design, and landscape architecture, particularly as these relate to the sustainable, natural environment and evolving technologies. Metropolis Books was founded by Sharon Helgason Gallagher and Horace Havemayer III and has developed under the editorial leadership of Diana Murphy. The imprint is a collaboration between Metropolis Magazine and ARTBOOK | D.A.P.

Collage & Photomontage Library

Collage & Photomontage LibraryA defining medium of the twentieth century--not only in art, but also in music and literature--collage has been adopted and adapted by almost every major cultural movement since 1908, from Cubism, Dadaism, Russian Futurism, and Surrealism to Situationism, Pop and Punk, as well as successive generations of artists galvanized by these precedents. Perhaps as a result of its efficiency, collage often provokes, on the one hand, a profoundly “inward” or visionary art, such as Bruce Conner and Hannah Hoch's--or, on the other, a more socially-addressed art, such as Eduardo Paolozzi or Linder's.

Park Life & Park Life II

THIS WEEK: Park Life opens Park Life II in San Francisco’s Mission District. Come to the Grand Opening Reception Friday, March 21 from 6-9. Owners Jamie Alexander and Derek Song will be offering free limited edition prints by some of their favorite artists, plus drinks and snacks! Located at 3049 22nd St at Shotwell, Park Life II is situated in a gorgeous turn-of-the-century building on a quiet corner of this bustling neighborhood. The new store continues to carry a similar assortment of urbane home goods, books, stationery, art and T-shirts, with a slightly different slant. While there is no room for a gallery, an active events calendar and collaborations with nearby arts and culture organizations will make Park Life II a destination for art and design lovers in San Francisco and beyond.
