Curatorial Essays, Monographs and Museum Exhibition Catalogues by Curator
In a recent issue of KUNSTforum, Norway's leading art magazine, Mari Rustan interviews photographer Eline Mugaas, copublisher of the influential cult collage magazine ALBUM, the first ten issues of which have been gathered in an awesome new 430-page compendium by Primary Information. Mugaas explains, "ALBUM is a fanzine made by Elise Storsveen and me. It is made up of borrowed images that we have collected over many years from books and magazines. We had played around with the images making gifts for friends. Then we discovered that the architect space downstairs from my studio had a copy machine and they let us use it for cost. It’s all about who you sleep with." …continue
ART AND PHOTO BOOK PUBLISHERS
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.
Featured title from Metropolis Books: Cape Cod Modern
Founding Surrealist André Breton defined Surrealism as “pure psychic automatism, by which an attempt is made to express, either verbally, in writing or in any other manner, the true functioning of thought. The dictation of thought, in the absence of all control by reason, excluding any aesthetic or moral preoccupation.” To these supra-rational ends, the Surrealist artists and poets pioneered and developed new techniques that ramified across all of the arts, from poetry to painting to cinema. This library collects some of the most essential texts and surveys on the movement.
ARTBOOK @ SWISS INSTITUTE is a new, curated pop-up bookshop at the Swiss Institute contemporary art center in New York. For each new exhibition, ARTBOOK freshly installs an entirely new thematic focus, new choice of titles and eclectic selection of publishers. Browsers and collectors alike are treated to a library-quality display of new releases, classic titles, museum catalogues, out-of-print and rare books, hard-to-find treasures, indie magazines and limited editions. Each theme store is conceived in collaboration between ARTBOOK's Skuta Helgason and the Swiss Institute's Simon Castets with input from represented curators and artists. The bookstore is open to the public during Swiss Institute events and on special public shopping days. Our holiday store is open Wednesdays through Sundays through December 22nd.
