Curatorial Essays, Monographs and Museum Exhibition Catalogues by Curator
"'Rise up! I have surpassed the tomb you dreamed for me,' declared Cameron in 1956. An exhortation to her deceased husband, rocket scientist and occultist Jack Parsons (1914–1952), Cameron's prose implied a spiritual breakthrough and a fearless resolve to continue on the magical path Parsons had introduced to her in 1946. Originally published in Wallace Berman's avant-garde art journal Semina, today Cameron's words resonate not only as mystical poetry, but as a shot across the bow of time: that her art not be buried with her body, that we see her art undead and always alive." Excerpt from Yael Lipschutz' text and Autumn (1955) are reproduced from Cameron: Songs for the Witch Woman, one of the featured Semina-related titles in our store this week at the LAABF.
ART AND PHOTO BOOK PUBLISHERS
Gregory R. Miller & Co., founded in 2004, publishes high quality books about contemporary art and artists. The books aim not only to enhance our understanding and appreciation of art but also to make a contribution to the broader cultural dialogue of which contemporary art is an essential part. Gregory R. Miller & Go. publishes books by and about contemporary artists at all stages of their careers, from emerging to established, with a particular focus on artists whose work can be ideally represented in book form. Writers are vital to the publications, and their writings are often integrally combined with the images and artworks contained in the books.
Featured title from Gregory R. Miller & Co.: Gerhard Richter: Books
While important precedents can be found for the artist’s book in numerous Futurist, Dada, Surrealist and Situationist publications, the book as a medium equivalent to painting or sculpture was consolidated in the early 1960s, its leading exponents being Ed Ruscha, Sol Lewitt and Dieter Roth. Today, the ubiquity of the term attests to its massive international expansion as a practice at the beginning of the twenty-first century.
Now located in the historic Helms Bakery district, Arcana: Books on the Arts is one of the world's premier visual arts bookstores specializing in rare and collectible Modern & Contemporary Art, Photography, Design, Architecture, Cinema, Music and Fashion. Arcana has long been a favorite shopping haunt for insiders in the worlds of film, fashion, art, photography, and commercial production. Its vast selection of rare, out-of-print and new books & catalogues from around the world is unparalleled.

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..."
