Jean Tinguely: Retrospective

DATE 6/28/2016

Jean Tinguely: Retrospective

"I painted and painted and painted… I never managed to finish a picture; it was like I was paralyzed and I hit a total dead end. I just couldn't see the end and didn't know when I was meant to stop painting… So I started working with movement. Movement offered me a way out of this paralysis, offered an endpoint. Movement allowed me to say, 'OK, now it's done.'" This 1961 photograph of
Jean Tinguely's 1960 meta-mechanic sculpture, "Le Cyclograveur," in motion is reproduced from Koenig Books' superb, and much needed, new
monograph, published to accompany the major retrospective traveling in Europe through 2017. This is the best book on Jean Tinguely, hands down.

Peter Fischli and David Weiss: Flowers and Mushrooms

Peter Fischli and David Weiss: Flowers and Mushrooms

Is it kitsch or psychedelia? Funny? Definitely strange in a good, Swiss way. Featured here are, literally, spreads from Peter Fischli and David Weiss: Flowers and Mushrooms—Walther König's 2016 reprint of the highly sought-after artist's book published for the 1999 Fischli/Weiss exhibition at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. Vividly printed on folded, unbound sheets, this irrepressibly seductive portfolio of double-exposed photographs of petals, pistols, stamens, berries, insects, grasses, leaves, weeds and all variety of proliferating fungi is a must-have for any art or artist's book library.

Alvin Baltrop: The Piers

Alvin Baltrop: The Piers

Featured image is reproduced from Alvin Baltrop: The Piers, TF Editores' recent collection of black-and-white photographs by the former sailor who returned from Vietnam to document the rough, anonymous gay "pier scene" on Manhattan's west side during the 70s and 80s. "Baltrop’s pictures show a gone world," Glenn O'Brien writes in his Foreword, "but the ghosts that inhabit these images retain the power to haunt our own time. In The Spectre of Promiscuity, Christian Klesse wrote, 'The spectre of queer promiscuity haunts the national imagination... Anti-promiscuity discourses are part of a wider and complex network of power that encircles queer sexual and intimate lives.’ In fact anti-promiscuity discourses seem to be an essential part of the power networks that define all sexuality. The tendency is to ignore the evidence, even that of the recent past, while what some call heteronormativity seems to be increasingly mistaken for a sudden leap in evolution. We should be thankful that the art of Alvin Baltrop exists to advocate a history that has yet to be written and to propose questions that are inconvenient and difficult, to say the least."
