Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty

Marilyn Minter's highly anticipated traveling retrospective, Pretty/Dirty, opens Friday at CAM Houston. For those who can't make it to Texas and don't want to wait until the exhibition arrives at the Brooklyn Museum this fall, we recommend Gregory R. Miller & Co.'s outstanding exhibition catalog. Featuring work from every period of the artist's forty-year career, this book is a star. In addition to copious reproductions, it features contributions by Bill Arning, Elissa Auther, Eileen Myles, Nick Flynn, Jenni Sorkin, Colby Keller, Neville Wakefield, K8 Hardy, Richard Hell, Catherine Morris and Linda Yablonsky, who asks Minter about the grotesque in her work. Minter responds, "The way I was thinking about it was that if you get in close enough, you get rid of narrative. I was going for the least amount of information that can still have lots of power. Multiple readings. Like when you pull your socks down and there are those lines in your legs. Things like that really interest me. Everyone knows about it, but no one’s ever made an image of it. I notice these things. I notice graffiti. I notice what the ads look like underneath it. I notice that sweat makes people look sexier. I’ve always been fascinated by details, so I’m not telling people what to think, but I still have content. Multiple meanings, multiple reads. That’s all I’m interested in—metaphor and paradox." Featured image is "Glazed" (2006).

German Expressionism Library

German Expressionism LibraryVivid and chaotic coloration; themes of insanity, obsession and euphoria; dense, frenetic cityscapes and morbid interiors: these are the abiding preoccupations of Expressionist painting. It was in Germany, as the emerging discipline of psychoanalysis collided with the aftershock of the First World War to yield new vocabularies for the portrayal of the private individual’s inner life, that Expressionism attained its most extreme incarnation. Inspired by the example of Vincent van Gogh and Edvard Munch, German painters like Max Beckmann and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner created electrifying canvases that articulated excesses of joy, angst or melancholy. Our German Expressionism library includes the foremost publications on this movement and its various strands in cinema, literature and theatre.

Celebrating Abraham Lincoln

Celebrating Abraham LincolnToday marks the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's assassination. He died the following morning, on April 15, 1865. But he is perhaps best remembered for his remarkable Gettysburg Address.

Bookforum Reviews Dorothy Iannone: You Who Read Me With Passion Now Must Forever Be My Friends

Bookforum Reviews Dorothy Iannone: You Who Read Me With Passion Now Must Forever Be My FriendsIn the April/May issue, Sarah Nicole Prickett writes "A new book of Iannone's works on paper begins with a reprinting of the series "An Icelandic Saga," 1978-86, which tells of the meet-cute as if it were myth and continues nonchronologically through the now octogenarian's oeuvre, collecting the more memorable proofs of her love for what she, like Tibetan Buddhists and Heideggerians, calls the 'ecstatic unity' of prima fascie opposites.
