Raymond Pettibon: Homo Americanus

Raymond Pettibon: Homo Americanus

"It's a way of using language at its most. There's this little guy, like an Eskimo, in the Arctic or Alaska or whatever, and he only says this one word, 'Vavoom.' But he says it so hugely, like an opera singer with a huge voice. And it's so huge that it can move mountains and tunnel under them. So, usually in the cartoons he's a misunderstood figure and because of his otherness, the villagers gang up on him, and then some crisis happens like the dam starts to burst—the cartoon image of putting your hand, your finger on one crack in the dike, and then it starts another and anther, and you're overwhelmed. You don't have enough hands on your body to stop it. And with his voice alone he can save the village. It's like the one word, the essence of language. In the beginning was a word, and that's how I work with it." – Raymond Pettibon, excerpted from Homo Americanus. Featured image is "No Title (What it was…)," 2001.

Blueprint for Counter Education

Blueprint for Counter Education

The 1970 edition of Blueprint for Counter Education was a defining document of the 60s counterculture. Long out-of-print, today a new facsimile edition has been published by Inventory Press—complete with three fold-out posters designed by Marshall Henrichs; original curriculum / handbook / shooting script by noted sociologist Maurice Stein (first Dean of CalArts Critical Studies program) and his collaborator Larry Miller; and a new 64-page booklet with additional materials including an interview with the authors and designer of the 1970 edition, notes on the design by pamphlet designer Adam Michaels of Project Projects, and essays by Paul Cronin and Jeffrey Schnapp, who calls the project "a wholesale attempt to enact a visual turn in the organization of knowledge in the form of a 'highly participative series of art-life games.'"

Yayoi Kusama: Give Me Love

DATE 5/17/2016

Yayoi Kusama: Give Me Love

"My Heart" (2013) is reproduced from Yayoi Kusama: Give Me Love, David Zwirner Books' masterful new monograph documenting the artist's most recent blockbuster exhibition of paintings, large-scale pumpkin sculptures and the New York iteration of her ongoing Obliteration Room—an additive, interactive project which invites gallery-goers to apply colorful circular stickers to the all-white interior of a small house installed within the gallery. So much has been written and circulated about Kusama's history in New York during the Fluxus era, her subsequent nervous breakdown, her life as a working artist who lives voluntarily in a Japanese mental hospital and her current celebrity (she was named one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people in the world, 2016) that it's easy to minimize the fact that Kusama is one of the great artists of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries simply based on the work.
