Carlos Amorales: Caca GrandeCarlos Amorales: Caca Grande

Published by RM/BLOK.

Poop in the air, poop in the trees, poop on your chin, poop on your knee: Mexican artist Carlos Amorales' children's book revels in the stuff, rendering these scenes in bold, scatological brown and black silhouette. Amorales (born 1970) has already established an impressive reputation as an artist working in a variety of media--animation, performance, video, sculpture, photography and works on paper--and here explores that singular niche within artists' publications: the artist's book sort of for children and definitely for adults. Caca Grande plays fast and loose with the brown stuff, dispatching it to places it had previously never been, with joyous abandon.

Paul McCarthy: Between Beauty and the BeastPaul McCarthy: Between Beauty and the Beast

Sculptures, Drawings and Photographs

Published by Foundation 20/21.
Edited by Tim Nye. Text by Sam Lipsyte.

Most artists would be sorry to hear that their work looked like a steaming plate of poop, but not Paul McCarthy. Because that's exactly what he's drawn. In a woodbound portfolio scribbled and annotated ("finger," "smeel my assh hul hole") in what looks like the handwriting of a teenage boy, everything that isn't scatological is phallic or violent. Photographs, including documentation of his sculptures, raise the production values and (sometimes) lower the NC-17 rating. And his commentaries on the work clarify his intentions: if Disney-esque model dwarves are "emissaries from multinational conglomerates come to colonize our dreams," McCarthy's mission must be, in part, recovering those dreams and restoring the taboo to our minds. Mission accomplished. McCarthy, born in Salt Lake City in 1945 and a longtime resident of Los Angeles, has had recent major solo shows at Stockholm's Moderna Museet, New York's New Museum and the Tate Modern in London.

Gilbert & George: The Complete Pictures, 1971--2005Gilbert & George: The Complete Pictures, 1971--2005

Published by Aperture.
Introduction by Rudi Fuchs.

Gilbert & George are among the foremost artists of their generation. A collaborative team, they were early to explore performance as an art form, and early to explore the idea that every aspect of daily life could be classed as such. They were early to mingle photography and graphics in a style reminiscent of advertising, and early to address sexual identity in that work. In fact, they were early to do much that viewers now take for granted. Their work has been exhibited worldwide since the beginning of the 1970s, and is either unusually accessible or completely unpalatable, depending on the viewer’s mindset. It has attracted both fierce controversy and enormous acclaim, including the 1986 Turner Prize and the U.K.’s slot at the 2005 Venice Biennale. At last, on the fortieth anniversary of their meeting (September 25, 1967, Saint Martin’s, London) and on the eve of a major retrospective that will tour six venues around the world—including Tate Modern, the Brooklyn Museum, the Milwaukee Art Museum and the de Young Museum in San Francisco—here is a book that does justice to the scale, depth and ambition of their artistic achievement. Or rather, here are two books: designed and produced by the artists, this luxurious two-volume hardback set, which comes in a customized carrying case with handles, documents every picture the pair has created over the course of their 35-year career.With details and installation views of many significant pieces, it includes 1500 color illustrations. The Complete Pictures will be the most thorough and extensive publication on the artists’ work ever assembled. Copublished with Tate Publishing, London.

Ca-Ca Poo-PooCa-Ca Poo-Poo

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Udo Kittelmann.

We all remember our experiences with finger painting as children- the delight in sanctioned messiness, the swirls of color on our paper, maybe having the result taped to the classroom wall or stuck on the refrigerator at home. With many artists, the childish preoccupation with smearing continues as a sensual play with pigment and its tactile quality. The provocatively titled Ca-ca poo-poo endeavors to trace this phenomenon with works by a variety of artists including Tracey Emin, Mike Kelley, Paul McCarthy, Tony Tasset, and others.

Atelier van LieshoutAtelier van Lieshout

Published by nai010 publishers.
Text by Jennifer Allen, Aaron Betsky, Rudi Laermans, Wouter Vanstiphout.

When Joep van Lieshout (b. 1963) founded the art and architecture studio that bears his name, he set in motion what has been described as "a new Dutch architectural style… dirty, delicious and direct." Now Atelier Van Lieshout is 10, and the first major monograph devoted to it, A Manual (1997), has been sold out for years. This new overview brings readers into AVL's contrarian applied art via luxuriously appointed "mobile homes," autonomous communes and surreal art projects, with equal time given to AVL-Ville (2001), a "free state" in Rotterdam's port, complete with its own flag, its own constitution and its own currency, and the revealing minutia of AVL's portfolio, from furniture to the "Bar Rectum," a perverse take on the Oscar-Meyer Weiner Mobile. The idea of art that can be used for a self-sufficient and independent lifestyle hits a uniquely high point in AVL-Ville, a culmination of all the work AVL has done before. And it lives on: After a successful and tumultuous year of work, AVL has recently located its first AVL-Ville export product in Park Middelheim in Antwerp: the AVL Franchise Unit. This richly illustrated survey tracks AVL's serious and often provocative portfolio through a crucial period in its growth and development.
