Curatorial Essays, Monographs and Museum Exhibition Catalogues by Curator
"I think all the stuff on the street is a gift. But you only get it if you go out there every day. You have to be there to see it, you have to read the content of the street.
I think it's rich with potential meaning, and with the light changing every minute, that, too, changes the meaning of what you read. I am always looking to make a photograph of something nearby, and something far away, at the same time.
For me, that 's what so exquisite about being out on the street, that it's throwing all this content at me all day long, and I am trying to see what can I do with all this loose information, how can I put a frame around it to make it somehow astonishing, while actually it is just ordinary life?" Featured image ("New York City, 1975) and excerpt are reproduced from Joel Meyerowitz: Retrospective.

Featured title from Osmos: Osmos Magazine: Issue 05
Emily Pilloton, author of Design Revolution, defines design as “problem-solving with grace and foresight.” No discipline is free from design criteria: the manufactured objects that are the building blocks of our environment can be badly designed, indifferently designed or designed “with grace and foresight.” Below is a selection of our finest books on product, ranging from monographs on individual designers and companies to surveys of design genres such as watch and chair design.
One of New York's best independent art bookstores and also one of the anchors of the Williamsburg culture scene, Spoonbill & Sugartown emphasizes books on contemporary art, architecture, design and other visual media but does not restrict itself to these. Founded by Miles Bellamy and Jonas Kyle in 1999, the store offers a highly curated selection of new books and catalogs as well as used, out-of-print and rare books in the aformentioned subjects as well as philosophy and literature.

HERBERT PFOSTL | DATE 1/22/2015
"Not very familiar with the work of Trevor Winkfield, I was upset for years about his painting on the cover of Raymond Roussel's 'How I Wrote Certain of My Books,' published by Exact Change in 1996. But after reading these selected art writings, I began to sense the what and why of color and of composition in his paintings, however foxed they still leave me..."
