Raymond Pettibon: The Whole World Is WatchingRaymond Pettibon: The Whole World Is Watching

Weatherman '69

Published by Regen Projects, Los Angeles.

According to the influential Los Angeles artist Mike Kelley, quoted in The New York Times Magazine, "many of Raymond Pettibon's earliest supporters were artists. Some people liked Raymond because they considered him a guy who didn't kiss the butt of the art world. Others thought he represented punk, or blue-collar Conceptualism or D.I.Y. What interested me about him was how he constructed things--like Lautrèamont, who's my favorite writer--with all these different sources juggled and combined into something particular. Raymond had that definite auteur look, which was faux-romantic, faux-Gothic, very Tennessee Williams, very foppishly funny."
Best-known for his iconic album covers and zine-style ink drawings featuring surfers, old-time baseball players, gangsters, religious nuts, trains, Gumby and the character Vavoom from the old Felix the Cat cartoon, Pettibon is also the author of a series of super-low-fi home videos, made with his friends beginning in the 1980s. Starring the very artists and musicians who supported Pettibon from the start, they are available here for the first time on DVD.
Red Tide Rising: Venice and Mars (2001) is a 2-disk set that deals with the life of Jim Morrison. Sir Drone: A New Film About the New Beatles (1989-90) chronicles the trials and tribulations of two nascent punk rockers in late-70s Los Angeles as they struggle to not be posers. Filmed over two days, it stars Mikes Watt and Mike Kelley. Citizen Tania: As Told to Raymond Pettibon (1989-90) deals with Patty Hearst and her Symbionese Liberation Army alias "Tania." Judgement Day Theater: The Book of Manson (1989-90) is an account of the famous Manson family. And The Whole World is Watching: Weatherman '69 (1989-90), starring Mike Watt, Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore, offers up sketches of historic encounters between the radical splinter group of the Students for a Democratic Society, Weatherman, and pop celebrities like Jane Fonda and John Lennon.

Five Films about Christo And Jeanne-ClaudeFive Films about Christo And Jeanne-Claude

Films by the Maysles Brothers

Published by Plexifilm.
Films by The Maysles Brothers. Essay by Charles Taylor. Introduction by Albert Maysles.

Five Films About Christo and Jeanne-Claude chronicles a 30-year collaboration between the internationally renowned environmental artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, and acclaimed documentary filmmakers Albert and David Maysles. The Maysles brothers, along with such frequent co-filmmakers as Charlotte Zwerin and Susan Froemke, have captured the artists' enduring romantic and artistic relationship and the grandeur of their large-scale temporary public works. This series of award-winning films stands as a permanent document of the process, the political drama, the emotional investment, and the transforming effect the finished works have on all those who come into contact with them. Christo and Jeanne-Claude's artistic undertakings are legendary. Whether they were surrounding islands off the coast of Florida in bright pink fabric, erecting a 24-mile-long, 18-foot-high fence of white cloth across two Northern California counties, or wrapping the Pont Neuf in Paris, their monumental works become narratives of hope and triumph in the face of adversity. And the act of filming becomes a project in and of itself, with the filmmakers present every step of the way, from planning and permission, to execution and display of these temporary artworks.
This three-DVD set is the most complete motion picture collaboration ever released between filmmakers and artists. Five award-winning films are included: Christo's Valley Curtain (1974), Running Fence (1978), Islands (1986), Christo in Paris (1990), and Umbrellas (1995). Each film has been digitally remastered with new transfers supervised by Albert Maysles, and the whole is presented along with new interviews and an 82-page, full-color booklet featuring stills, drawings and essays.

Immemory: A cd-rom by Chris MarkerImmemory: A cd-rom by Chris Marker

Published by Exact Change.

Filmmaker, photographer, writer and traveler Chris Marker has never respected the boundaries between genres. His landmark 1962 film La Jetée is made up almost entirely of stills, its one moving image as thrilling as the Lumières’ films must have been for their original audiences. Since then, Marker’s films (including the features Sans Soleil, and most recently Level Five) have continued to stretch the definition of the art, merging at times with the essay, political manifesto, personal letter, art installation, even the computer game. In Immemory, Chris Marker has used the format of the CD-Rom to create a multi-layered, multimedia memoir. The reader investigates “zones” of travel, war, cinema and poetry, navigating through photographs, film clips, music and text, as if physically exploring Marker’s memory itself. The result is a veritable twenty-first-century Remembrance of Things Past, an exploration of the state of memory in our digital era. With it, Marker has both invented a literary form and perfected it. System Requirements: For Macintosh computers running System 7.5 through Mac OS 9 (including the “Classic environment” of Mac OS X)

Black Light/White Noise: Light and Sound in Contemporary ArtBlack Light/White Noise: Light and Sound in Contemporary Art

Published by Contemporary Arts Museum Houston.
Foreword by Marti Mayo. Text by Greg Tate, Romi Crawford, Valerie Cassel Oliver.

This 64-page paperback, housed with a DVD in a hardback case, accompanies The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston's Summer 2007 exhibition, Black Light/White Noise, which focuses on black artists who have worked with sound and light--such as Ben Patterson, Tom Lloyd and George Lewis. The continuation and expansion of work in sound and light among a younger generation of African American artists and artists of African descent is also considered here in real depth, with work by Nadine Robinson, Kori Newkirk, Arthur Jafa, Jennie C. Jones, Sanford Biggers, Kira Lynn Harris and Louis Cameron. The innovative design of this hybrid print/digital publication gives readers the opportunity to experience all the works featured in the show alongside a checklist of the exhibition, artist's biographies, a bibliography and essays by curator Valerie Cassel Oliver, Romi Crawford of the Studio Museum of Harlem and writer, composer, musician and playwright Greg Tate.

Bless: Celebrating 10 years of ThemelessnessBless: Celebrating 10 years of Themelessness

10 Years of Experimental Fashion, Video Compilation

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Nicolas Trembley.

This 90-minute DVD features 10 years worth of video documentation of the experimental fashion and object designs by the avant-garde collaborators Bless. Heralded as one of fashion's most innovative teams, the Paris- and Berlin-based duo of Desiree Heiss and Ines Kaag refuses to capitalize on one milieu. Constantly investigating the boundaries of style, Bless slips between fashion, beauty, interior design, art and advertising, often collaborating with other brands--like Nike and Adidas to name just a couple. Their work, which straddles the line between object and design, high function and high fashion, is always unique and marked by the recycling and adaptation of unexpected items put to use in totally new ways. The films collected here include a fashion show/dinner party; a show where models walked on an intentionally wobbly stage; a collection laid out as a still life; and 12 others.

Videos and Vodka: Selections from Video Salon

Published by J&L Books.
Edited by Jacob Dyrenforth, Eva Respini.

J&L Video 2: Videos and Vodka is the second in a series of DVDs published by J&L Books featuring short films by artists. This volume is guest edited by curator Eva Respini and artist Jacob Dyrenforth, whose Videos and Vodka salon presented non-traditional screenings in a domestic setting. Stressing the importance of context in the viewing experience, their series aimed to bring together video makers and viewers without the usual meditation of the art market. This two-DVD set features videos by salon artists, including Guy Ben-Ner, Tanyth Berkeley, Duke and Battersby, Christopher Miner, Ohad Meromi, Lisa Oppenheim, John Pilson, Halsey Rodman, Kirsten Stoltmann and Sterling Ruby. An accompanying booklet considers Respini and Dyrenforth's salon within the history of video and within the context of other non-traditional viewing models.

EnsembleEnsemble

Published by Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.
Edited by Christian Marclay. Introduction by Claudia Gould. Sound mix by Aaron Igler.

New York-based Christian Marclay has been a pioneering DJ since the 1970s, when he began to rock turntables and even old gramophones--bending, breaking and mixing records in the creation of a brand new instrument. Since then, in addition to DJing, he has exhibited his sound-based artwork internationally. Ensemble is a group exhibition of sound art at the ICA, which Marclay organized. Likening his approach to that of a composer rather than a curator, Marclay chose sculpture and installations based on their sound quality and sonic compatibility. An ambient sound environment resulted, with iconic works by such artists as Harry Bertoia, Yoko Ono and Michelangelo Pistoletto, mixed in with newer pieces. This publication includes a CD featuring a once-in-a-lifetime gathering of artist/musicians, including Shelly Hirsch, Alison Knowles, Alan Licht, Marina Rosenfeld and Mika Tajima “playing” the show.

Ecart Films Archives: John Armleder & All, Vol.1-DVDEcart Films Archives: John Armleder & All, Vol.1-DVD

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Lionel Bovier.

The Ecart group, founded by John Armleder, Patrick Lucchini and Claude Rychner, goes as far back as their childhood friendships, but it was the 1969 opening of the Ecart gallery in Geneva--which many considered the most important alternative space in Europe during the 1970s--that made it official. Ecart members eventually produced a dozen or so Super-8 films, some directed by Endre Tot and Gunther Ruch, which are compiled for the first time on this DVD. Titles include One Day Movie Hall, Fluxtheatre, Pieds, Why not Stop? (Part One), Trace, and The Crissier-Walk (Ecart Meets Adelina & Egon von Furstenberg). They are emblematic of the group's singular collective economy, and also attest to the era's increasingly intersecting media (performance, film, installation), to aesthetic and conceptual freedom and to the hybrid nature of artistic movements, from conceptual art to action, from individual poetics to the sharing of signatures, that characterized the 1970s.

25 Years of Artists' Bookpage Projects for Parkett

Published by Parkett.

This CD-ROM presents the first comprehensive survey of the signature inserts made by artists especially for Parkett. Faithful to its core principle of working closely with artists, Parkett has to date invited 75 artists to work directly with the format of the magazine and the offset printing process. These artists have each produced a series of original artists' pages—an ongoing study in the freedom of the book form—and an astounding variety and diversity of paper-based artists' ideas have been published. These inserts include the use of text (Barbara Kruger, Jonathan Monk), photography (Richard Mapplethorpe, Sigmar Polke, Nan Goldin, Damien Hirst, Henry Bond, Shirana Shahbazi), drawing (Toba Khedoori, Silvia Baechli, Matthew Ritchie), comics (Robert Crumb, David Shrigley, Dan Perjovschi), painting (Adrian Schiess, Richmond Burton, Kara Walker, Jeremy Blake, Marcel Dzama) or graphic elements (Daniel Buren, General Idea, Niele Toroni, Nic Hess, Matthew Brannon, Ryan Gander).
