"Rocking our sense of security and danger, James Casebere probes domestic and public spaces in order to expose the porous borders between them. He introduces foreign elements, manipulating light and our visual expectations of the sacred and profane; the safe haven versus confinement; privacy versus secrecy; wilderness versus shelter. He estranges the familiar and warps the conventional in hospitals, church-inflected architecture, ordinary home furnishings, corridors, and prisons."

Excerpt is from the Foreword by Toni Morrison and Ford Morrison.

James Casebere: Works 1975-2010

Published by Damiani
Edited by Okwui Enwezor. Introduction by Toni Morrison, Ford Morrison. Text by Hal Foster.

"Yellow Hallway #2" (2001) is reproduced from <a href="9788862081863.html">James Casebere: Works 1975-2010</a>, published by <a href="damiani.html">Damiani</a>.James Casebere (born 1953) emerged in the Pictures Generation as an artist-photographer complicating the status of the photographic image alongside Cindy Sherman and Richard Prince. His earliest works dismantled the codes of American suburbia and the myth of the west, but he quickly arrived at the practice for which he is best known today: the construction of formally simplified architectural models--arenas, monasteries, tunnels, factories--which Casebere lights and photographs in his studio. In the early 1990s, as the ramifications of Michel Foucault's critiques of architecture and power took hold in American culture, Casebere's practice developed into a study of architectural typologies of the Enlightenment era, particularly prisons. The lighting in his photographs is dramatic, or rather it plays with the rhetoric of dramatic lighting, qualified by the sheer artifice of the architectural models themselves. Edited by Okwui Enwezor, this major mid-career survey includes several of Casebere's lesser-known early works, as well as previously unreproduced sculpture and photographs from 1975 to 2010. Enwezor contributes both an introduction and a conversation with the artist. The volume also contains essays by Hal Foster and Toni Morrison. James Casebere: Works 1975-2010 is the most comprehensive monograph to date on this important American artist.

James Casebere and Hal Foster at Barnes & NobleOn Wednesday, October 26, ARTBOOK | D.A.P. and the New York Foundation for the Arts hosted a conversation between artist James Casebere and noted art historian Hal Foster at the 86th Street Barnes & Noble in New York. In honor of Casebere's excellent new monograph, Works 1975-2010, published by Damiani Editore, Foster and Casebere conversed on a range of topics, including Casebere's early work as a sculptor and the evolution of his use of photography; architecture; and the mysteries of suburban culture. Though Casebere and Foster have known one another for years, and have maintained a long-term dialogue across many shared areas of interest, this was the first time they had spoken together in public. The talk was followed by a signing. continue to blog
