How we love the books and prints of Louise Bourgeois in MoMA's 'An Unfolding Portrait'

Featured image is the last of eight plates from Louise Bourgeois’ 1990 illustrated book, the puritan. It is reproduced from Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait, published to accompany the major MoMA survey of the artist’s prints and books on view starting September 24. The text on the verso side reads, “Later on he died right in his factory of refinement. Everyone worth talking about cried and cried. Of course no one could see his soul, not even his wife. But they said that his body was dry and they think he was a puritan.”

Black artist as superhero: Barkley L. Hendricks in 'Soul of a Nation'

Barkley L. Hendricks’ riveting 1969 self-portrait—titled Icon for My Man Superman (Superman Never Saved any Black People—Bobby Seale)—is reproduced from Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power. "The work’s subtitle invites a declarative statement of solidarity with the Black Panther co-founder Bobby Seale,” Zoé Whitley writes. “But Hendricks makes evident another position: here we find the Black artist as superhero, painting himself into history rather than waiting for someone else to confer the honor upon him.”

What can we learn from 'Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power'?

Emma Amos’s “Eva the Babysitter” (1973) is reproduced from Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power, the catalog to the blockbuster survey currently on view at Tate, London. Called “angry, zestful, ebullient, sardonic, wildly energetic, powerfully direct, occasionally sorrowful and tentative,” by the Guardian and “one of the shows of the year” by the Telegraph, this show —and the book—became more timely than ever the minute violence erupted in Charlottesville last month—as pointed out by Roslyn Sulcas in the New York Times.

In this beautifully printed volume with special flat open binding, gatefolds and blown in inserts, Cornwall presents once-classified government documents and first-person accounts alongside photographs of residential and leisure spaces for both prisoners and guards, anonymous portraits of prisoners post-release, and a selection of souvenirs from the GTMO gift shop.

The perfect book for now. Jim Marshall: Peace

“Looking at the images in Jim Marshall’s Peace book I’m struck by how acutely Marshall picked up on the rise of the peace sign as a counter-culture, and later a dominant-culture, symbol,” Shepard Fairey writes in the prescient new book from Reel Art Press. "Small rebellious acts like a piece of graffiti pushing back against injustice encourage me to take action and remind me that regardless of how alone I may feel, there are kindred spirits out there. I think Jim Marshall saw the value in documenting the evidence that something’s happening out there!”

A glimmer of Peace in Jim Marshall's 60s photos

From 1961 to 1968, Jim Marshall traveled the United States photographing musicians and music events like the Newport and Monterey Jazz Festivals. Along the way, he documented his encounters with a rapidly proliferating symbol first associated with the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and now known as the ubiquitous peace sign. Opening at ACA Galleries, New York September 6.

Does anything look as great as 70s Women's Tennis?

“Der Star 1978.” Tracy Austin, age 15, won the first ever Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in 1978, after a thrilling final against Dutch powerhouse, Betty Stöve. The ruffled bloomers, pom-pom socks and pigtails were only a façade: Austin swept her opponents off the courts and cemented her place in a sport that was just then becoming open to women athletes on par with men.

Forlorn monuments or strange and individualistic works of art?

Christopher Herwig’s photographs of Soviet Bus Stops never get old. “These are still the poorest areas of post-Soviet Russia,” Owen Hatherley writes, “their economies destroyed by the end of public subsidies and the command economy. In this context, the bus stops stand as forlorn monuments to an age when the people in high places still gave such areas some thought. But they also appear ... as strange and individualistic works of art sited in green landscapes, whether the flat fields that stretch from Belarus to the Urals, or the Caucasian mountains."

Michael Auping on cartoons, abstraction and KAWS

“Looking at KAWS’s paintings is to witness someone who very naturally approaches cartoons and abstraction as symbiotic languages of visual tropes. This is not a simple mixing of the cartoon figure with the abstract, but a blurring of the two, bringing to light the abstract nature of cartoons, as well as the figural possibilities of abstraction..." - Michael Auping, KAWS: Where the End Starts
