Phyllida Barlow: Fifty Years of Drawings

In her introduction to JRP|Ringier's superb new Phyllida Barlow survey, Fifty Years of Drawings, Hauser & Wirth senior director Sara Harrison writes, "Most of Phyllida Barlow’s sculptures from the last fifty years have been destroyed. The materials were either disposed of or recycled into new works. This decision was initially motivated by necessity (lack of space, finance, etc.), but over time this process of destruction has become part of Barlow’s questioning of sculpture’s traditional values of permanence, durability, and longevity. What survives from the last decades is a rich archive of drawings dating back to the 1960s. These provide the artist’s own account of the missing sculptures. Moreover they are an integral part of her artistic output: works in their own right." The untitled early-70s pencil drawing featured here is reproduced from Phyllida Barlow: Fifty Years of Drawings.

Toulouse-Lautrec in the Collection of The Museum of Modern Art

This weekend, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, opens The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec, an exhibition of prints and posters by the beloved French aristocrat, bohemian and lifelong alcoholic best known for his game-changing portrayals of Parisian nightlife; in particular, prostitutes. The 1892 lithograph "Queen of Pleasure (Reine de Joie)" is reproduced from the Museum's accompanying publication, Toulouse-Lautrec in the Collection of The Museum of Modern Art. In her catalogue essay, curator Sarah Suzuki writes, "His work creates a diaristic, nearly day-by-day account of his life: which venues he visited, which performers, plays or operas he saw, which songs he heard. In his dogged documentation, he was a non-photographic paparazzo, and a harbinger of our contemporary celebrity-obsessed culture. But he was also a performer himself, playing one role for his aristocratic family, and another as the outrageous drunk genius dwarf of bohemian Paris. His personal and professional obsessions, which he termed furias, were often performers in whom he likewise saw a successfully created and executed public persona. He paid special attention to those who, like him, truly inhabited their role."

Konstantin Grcic: Panorama

In Panorama, the catalog to Vitra Design Museum's compelling current exhibition, influential German industrial designer Konstantin Grcic writes, "Over the years, an 'archive of things' has accumulated in my studio. Scattered among my own design projects are other objects, references, materials, personal finds, artworks. They are arranged in a row, like a game of dominoes. Their order is based on a simple logic: one object tells a story that refers to the next object, which in turn is linked to the story of the following one, and so forth. There is no chronology, just a continuous sequence of freely associated narratives. The relationships are subjective and could also work in a different order. For me, this principle reflects a familiar process: inspiration comes from the dynamic interaction of things. The vitrine is a cosmos of knowledge and ideas. Taken as a whole, it represents a part of my biography." Describing the works in this image Grcic writes, "We discovered that there are thousands of stacking chairs on the market, but almost no stackable bar stools. And the stacking feature is not only relevant for the user, it is also practical and economical with regard to production, warehousing and transport. From a technical standpoint, the orange-and-black stool would be rejected as a by-product that occurs when colors are changed during a production run. The photo of construction workers with the MIURA stool was published in a small volume of images shot by Florian Böhm in New York City in the summer of 2006. Portable construction lamps served as models for MAYDAY (Flos, 1999). Incidentally, construction sites with the craziest, most imaginative and beautiful lighting objects are found in Japan."
