Gerhard Richter’s ongoing, encyclopedic Atlas project began in 1964, and now comprises more than 5,000 gridded photographs, diagrams, drawings and sketches. As an image archive, work tool and artist’s book, Atlas sits at the very heart of Richter’s practice, offering a massive summation of his masterful explorations of the tensions between photography and painting, history and memory, perception and representation. As a publication, Atlas has gone through numerous editions, each new volume expanding on the previous with elaborations of persistent themes. This book provides a critical tool for navigating Atlas, bringing together Richter’s own writings alongside commentaries by the art historians and curators Armin Zweite, Jean-François Chevrier, Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Lynne Cooke and Helmut Friedel. Originally published in 2003 to coincide with the Whitechapel Gallery’s exhibition Gerhard Richter: Atlas, this updated edition also includes a review of the exhibition by Adrian Searle.

Loop documents Slovak conceptual artist Roman Ondák’s project for the Czech and Slovak pavilion at the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2010. Ondák created a work that hides in plain sight by removing the doors to the pavilion and filling it with the same living plants and gravel paths that surround it on the outside.

For more than six decades, James Castle (1899-1977) dedicated himself virtually full-time to the activity of making art, producing a vast and accomplished body of work, much of which he managed to preserve. Growing up in rural Idaho, Castle devised his own art materials and techniques, making ink for drawing by moistening soot from the family stove with his own saliva and using discarded paper and other materials. In the 1950s, through the efforts of family members, Castle's work came to the attention of the local art community, and it began to be exhibited in Idaho and the Pacific Northwest, often under the rubric of outsider or self-taught art. Not until the late 1990s, however, did it appear in mainstream art circuits. Castle's work poses numerous challenges for the art historian. He was born profoundly deaf and never adopted conventional means of communication and thus never commented on his art. His works are neither titled nor dated, and it is difficult to trace an evolution or establish a chronology. As a result, previous scholarship has tended to focus on Castle's biography or on specific aspects of his oeuvre. James Castle: Show and Storetakes a different approach, looking at the entire scope of the artist's production--which included drawings, constructions made from found pieces of colored card and handmade books--and emphasizing the centrality of his display and storage methods to his practice. The essays in this volume also question the notion of Castle as an artist who worked in isolation from the world at large, examining his copying and reuse of images derived from printed media, including advertising and product packaging, and perhaps even television. Illustrated with more than 200 full-color reproductions, Show and Storeexamines drawings, handmade books, cardboard and paper constructions and collages. Born profoundly deaf, James Castle (1899-1977) never fully learned to read or write, instead developing his own unique sign system and visual vocabulary. He won some local acclaim during his lifetime (including 1963 and 1976 exhibitions at the Boise Gallery of Art) but only achieved international recognition after his death in 1977.

Sicilian filmmaker Rosa Barba (born 1972) interrogates and decontextualizes the language of mainstream moviemaking through the medium of film itself and in sculptural installations. This selection of film stills, preproduction sketches and photographs illustrates Barba's preoccupation with the truth claims of mass-circulated cultural artifacts.

Published to accompany the first large-scale retrospective of Alighiero Boetti's work outside Italy in over a decade, this volume presents the most comprehensive overview of the artist's career to date. Covering all periods of Boetti's broad oeuvre--including early sculptural experiments associated with the Arte Povera movement, conceptual and ephemeral projects of the 1970s and the monumental embroideries and tapestries he fabricated up to his death--this richly illustrated catalogue is structured as a typology of the artist's body of work rather than a chronological progression. Essays by curators from the Reina Sofia, Madrid, the Tate Modern, London and The Museum of Modern Art, New York, address recurrent themes in Boetti's work such as travel and geography, time, order and disorder and singularity and multitude, while contributions by scholars examine his early influences and his relationship to the cultural, political, and social spheres of Italy and Afghanistan in the 1970s and 1980s. This volume celebrates the material diversity, conceptual complexity and visual beauty of Boetti's work, proving that he is one of the most important and influential artists of his generation.

Over three decades, French photographer Jean-Luc Mylayne (born 1946) has pursued a single motif: common birds in their natural habitats. But Mylayne is no documentarian or nature photographer. His works might best be described as tableaux in which avian motifs play carefully scripted roles within a larger tale of life, and themes of interdependence among species, the cycles of life and death and the depletion of natural resources.

Chronotopes & Dioramas explores key themes developed in Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster's site-specific 2009–2010 installation at Dia at the Hispanic Society of America. For this project, Gonzalez-Foerster took as her point of departure the Society's renowned research library, expanding and updating the historic collection with twentieth-century literature by nearly 40 different authors. The artist installed these books in a trio of dioramas, organizing them by place of origin in one of three regions: the desert, the tropics and the North Atlantic. This companion volume to the installation includes new writing by Gonzalez-Foerster's past collaborator, the celbrated Spanish novelist Enrique Vila-Matas. The book is printed in three different covers, reproducing each of the three diaromas.

In his works, the American artist Josiah McElheny questions the legacy of modernity from the standpoint of his practice as a master of glass, starting from the confluence of design, science and art. McElheny studied art at the Rhode Island School of Design, and increased his knowledge of traditional glass manufacturing techniques by studying with such masters as Ronald Wilkin. This book presents "Island Universe," an installation composed of five chromed aluminium and blown glass sculptures. The structures form spheres that depict the grouping of galaxies in the universe and lights symbolizing quasars (the most brilliant objects known to man). The starting point of this work are the chandeliers inside the New York Metropolitan Opera House, designed by Lobmeyr in 1965, the same year in which the first data in support of the Big Bang theory were made public. The work functions as a model of that theory of the origin of the universe.

Shortly before his death in 1977, German painter Blinky Palermo created his most significant cycle of paintings, dedicating it "to the people of nyc." The work consists of 15 parts, composed from 40 painted aluminum panels arranged in combinations of cadmium red, cadmium yellow and black. Recalling Piet Mondrian's late series New York City (1941-42), and works by such American artists as Robert Ryman and Brice Marden, To the People of New York City (1976) is distinguished by its prescribed hanging and pacing, and its rhythmically changing formats, which also bring to mind the Jazz performances that Palermo sought out during his time in New York, where he had maintained a studio from 1973 to 1975. This handsome editiondiscusses To the People of New York City--today in the collection of New York's Dia Art Foundation--within this context and alongside works by his former teacher Joseph Beuys, and his long-time friends and colleagues Imi Knoebel and Gerhard Richter, among others.

Gary Hill is one of the most influential contemporary artists to investigate the myriad relationships between words and electronic images. His inquiries into linguistics and consciousness offer resonant philosophical and poetic insights, as he explores the formal conjunctions of electronic visual and audio elements with the body and the self. With experimental rigor, conceptual precision and imaginative leaps of discovery, Hill's work in video is about, and is, a new form of writing. In this substantial volume, George Quasha and Charles Stein analyze the artist's entire career, paying particular attention to the single-channel video works. Covering Hill's oeuvre, this highly readable monograph features a comprehensive chronology of his work, including important production details. A careful selection of key writings by the artist is also included. With 640 pages and more than 900 illustrations, it is the most comprehensive and in-depth treatment of Gary Hill's work to date, written in close connection with the artist, and offers an essential theoretical and scholarly frame for continuing study.

New York-based artist Tony Oursler says of his drawings, “Each object I touch has a text. Like it or not, I hear it, I see it. Each touch throws me hopelessly out of my time, out of my mind. In this fractured psychological state, I’m amazed that this fragile scribbling on paper survived.” While his position as a forerunner in video art is well established, Oursler’s two-dimensional works have always been an essential part of his creative process as well. He describes these works on paper as a series of perceptions, scenes, delusions and diagrams--a free association of ideas that inform his video work. Oursler uses drawing, painting and collage as a diary--a means of remembering, associating or layering thoughts. The studies, sketches and paintings explore the supernatural, methods of mass communication, the history and development of media technology and their effect on the human psyche. This publication offers a chronology of Oursler’s two-dimensional work over the past 10 years, showcasing his early works on canvas, painting on sculpture, painting with collage and his videos that are projected onto painted panels. It is published in conjunction with Lehmann Maupin Gallery, New York.

The art of Richard Serra is internationally admired for its powerful material qualities and its searching exploration of the relationship between the work, the viewer and the site. Indeed, since his emergence in the mid-1960s, Serra is widely understood to have radicalized and extended the very definition of sculpture. Quite simply the most complete view to date of the work of one of the most important artists of the last half-century, Richard Serra Sculpture: Forty Years offers a detailed visual presentation and documentation of Serra's entire career, from his early experiments with materials like rubber, neon and lead to the environmentally scaled steel works of recent years--including three monumental new sculptures created for The Museum of Modern Art's 2007 retrospective, for which this volume was produced. The book contains major scholarly essays on the artist's work by Benjamin Buchloh, Lynne Cooke and John Rajchman, as well as an interview with the artist by Kynaston McShine, the Museum's Chief Curator at Large.

Claude Closky's work takes a variety of forms and incorporates almost all the means and ways of expression available to this modern dabbler: collage on paper, video encrustation, folding paper, sound recording, drawings, and silkscreen prints, etc. Closky, it seems, never aims for gratuitous spectacular effects. Therefore, his interventions generally pass unnoticed, like the random organization of information in certain of his works. As critic Frédéric Paul puts it, “The artist is always working and if he is not working, he is 'training.'“ Claude Closky was born in France in 1963 and today lives and works in Paris.

Published by The Refco Group. Edited by Adam Brooks. Essays by Lynne Cooke, Dave Hickey, A.M. Homes, David Rimanelli and Katy Siegel. Introduction by Judith Russi Kirshner.
Among the many lessons we have learned from photography since its inception are a few about the nature of reality and its representation. Long considered a mirror image of the real world, a direct and objective record of what exists in the visual stratosphere, the photograph has come to be understood as something much more complicated and variable, something easily manipulated and modified. Subjective Realities is thus a most apt title for this publication, which presents a stellar selection of contemporary photography from the Refco Collection. Included are works by Vito Acconci, Janine Antoni, Matthew Barney, Chris Burden, Jean-Marc Bustamante, Sophie Calle, Gregory Crewdson, Rineke Dijkstra, Olafur Eliasson, Barbara Ess, Walker Evans, Adam Fuss, Ann Hamilton, Eva Hesse, Axel Hutte, Seydou Keita, Inigo Manglano-Ovalle, Ana Mendieta, Gordon Matta-Clark, Mariko Mori, Catherine Opie, Richard Prince, and many, many more artists. An essay by Dave Hickey introduces the book, and short texts on individual artists have been contributed by Lynne Cooke, Kathryn Hixson, A.M. Homes, Glenn O'Brien, Saul Ostrow, Luc Sante, Katy Siegel, and others.

One of Canada's most humorous conceptual artists--as witty as he is smart--Rodney Graham gets his first North American museum retrospective and accompanying catalogue. Rodney Graham: A Little Thought tracks the career of a brilliant, idiosyncratic artist whose work spans a range of media including photography, film, book works, installation and pop music. In this volume, amply illustrated with many never-before-seen images from early in his career as well as new photography of his most recent works, scholarly essays provide a broad context for viewing: Cornelia Butler looks at Graham's relationship to landscape and Canadian identity, Lynne Cooke examines the construction of the artist's persona in works such as City Self/ Country Self (2001), and Shep Steiner discusses the joke as a conceptual strategy for Graham. Diedrich Diederichsen considers the artist's oeuvre within the context of musical structure, and Sara Krajewski describes how Graham's video works unfold. Finally, Grant Arnold offers an in-depth illustrated chronology, tracing the range of activities that have occupied Graham since his early days on the Vancouver scene.

Tony Cragg embarked on his fine art education in 1969, a time when Minimalism, Land Art, Conceptual Art, and Arte Povera were fresh and present. Those movements marked his artistic beginnings, and thus in his earliest works Cragg started out with found materials, which he stacked, heaped, or spread on to the floor so as to study and analyze their properties. To capture the receptacle forms of vessels and cells--understood as a metaphor for any biological organism--he used traditional materials such as cast iron, bronze, glass, or stone. More recently, his interest has been increasingly directed at converting one idea into numerous variations. For instance, in the Early Forms series, the inner and outer forms become ever more complex; in Rational Beings, the sculptural form becomes ever more volumetric and statuesque. In the end, Cragg's sculptures can never be unambiguously classified; they appear as sensual, poetic creatures, mutable and paradoxical. This present scholarly survey of Cragg's work distinguishes systematic and chronological aspects, reflects on ways of working and material resources, and makes apparent associations, interconnections, and evolutionary strands.

These writers, among others, take on the challenges of illuminating, analyzing, and exploring the work of a disparate group of internationally recognized artists, including Joseph Beuys, Stan Douglas, Douglas Gordon, Rodney Graham, Bruce Nauman and Andy Warhol. Together, the essays in this book present a broad-based account of contemporary artistic practice, criticism, scholarship and theory.

Finally Available Since 1992, Dia has presented the Robert Lehman Lectures on Contemporary Art. Like the Foundation's “Discussions in Contemporary Culture” symposia series, the Lehman lectures are an example of Dia's ongoing commitment to cross-disciplinary critical and intellectual discourse. The long-term, often site-specific, exhibitions at Dia offer a fertile space for discussion. Edited by Lynne Cooke and Karen Kelly, together with Bettina Funcke, this second volume of collected theoretical and critical essays are by a multidisciplinary group of lecturers, and are focused on the exhibitions mounted at Dia from 1995 through 1998. Nine diverse contributors range in scope from art historian David Sylvester and philosopher Sarat Maharaj to architectural theoretician Beatriz Colomina, from philosopher Mark Taylor to fiction writer and cultural critic Marina Warner. These writers, among others, take on the challenges of illuminating, analyzing, and exploring the work of a disparate group of internationally recognized artists, including Alighiero e Boetti, Jessica Stockholder, Gerhard Richter, Juan Muñoz, Fred Sandback and Andy Warhol. Together, the essays in this book present a broad-based account of contemporary artistic practice, criticism, scholarship and theory.

Since its founding seven years ago by Pace Foods heiress Linda Pace, ArtPace has become one of the premiere foundations for contemporary art. An artist residency program based in San Antonio, Texas, ArtPace's goal is to give artists time and space in which to imagine new ways to work. Each year, nine artists (three from Texas, three from other areas of the United States and three from abroad) are invited to the foundation to create new work. Selected by guest curators the likes of Robert Storr and Okwui Enwezor, the list of artists who have undertaken residencies at ArtPace is impressive, prescient and diverse, including Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Annette Messager, Tracey Moffatt, Xu Bing, Nancy Rubins, Cornelia Parker, Inigo Manglano-Ovalle, Glenn Ligon, Kendell Geers, Carolee Schneemann, Mona Hatoum, Isaac Julien, Arturo Herrera, and Christian Jankowski. Dreaming Red includes illustrations of all the works created at ArtPace since its inception, an essay by art historian Eleanor Heartney, short essays on selected artists by the guest curators, including Cuauhtémoc Medina, Lynne Cooke, Chrissie Iles and Judith Russi Kirshner, and a lengthy essay on the personal history of the foundation and its founder.

Published by Dia Art Foundation. Artwork by Robert Whitman. Edited by Bettina Funcke, Karen Kelly. Text by David Joselit, George Baker, Ben Portis, Lynne Cooke.
One of the pioneers of performance and multimedia work, constantly cited as key to the burgeoning postwar genres now considered standard fare in art galleries and museums, Robert Whitman's work of the 1960s and 1970s has long been inaccessible because of its ephemeral nature. This publication and the exhibition it accompanies are the first to reexamine his seminal early work, begun under the influence of Allan Kaprow in the late 1950s. Early performances, in conjunction with fellow artists Jim Dine and Claes Oldenburg, paralleled exhibitions in some of the more influential experimental galleries of the time, including Hansa, Reuben and Martha Jackson. The 1960s saw Whitman become highly interested in multimedia projections, which he incorporated into installations as well as into his increasingly elaborate performances. Together with Robert Rauschenberg, Billy Klüver and others, Whitman later spearheaded the collaborations between artists and scientists that resulted in such landmark exhibitions as Art & Technology, at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 1971 and Pavillion (E.A.T.), at the Pepsi pavillion, Expo 70, in Osaka, Japan. An incisive volume for artists and scholars interested in the major movements of the 1960s and 1970s, including happenings, performance, theater, pop art, multimedia installation work and interdisciplinary collaboration.
Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers. Artwork by Neo Rauch. Text by Harald Szeemann, Daniel Birnbaum, Lynne Cooke.
One of the most original artists of his generation, Neo Rauch's paintings appear disturbingly detached and yet familiar, their figures, objects, and mood seemingly borrowed from old advertising posters, dusty book jackets, and forgotten comics. Rauch's formulistic visual symbols suggest a more profound meaning, yet it is difficult to decipher their message. The tension lurking under their almost frozen surfaces, washed with dusky, sinister colors, is fueled by paradox: as vivid as the structure of the work comes across, the impression is rigid; as powerful as the strokes of broken colors are, they appear faded, from bygone times.

Thomas Schütte's works are almost always proposals, and are consequently almost always in the form of models. At the core of this system of presentation lies hypothesis and speculation, moralism and romanticism, melancholy and black humor. Through early architectural installations and small-scale modeled figures and proposals for monuments, through extensive series of watercolors, banners, flags and photographs, Schutte takes a skeptical look at the world. This new monograph explores in detail the vast scope and extraordinary inventiveness of Schutte's work by documenting his tripartite exhibition at the Dia Center for the Arts, New York. "Scenewright" focuses on issues relating to sceneography and theater; "Gloria in Memoria" explores memorials, monuments and antiheroes; and "In Media Res" presents recent ceramics and a related series of monumental steel sculptures.

In an imaginative merging of abstraction and personalized iconography, Alfred Jensen's bright paintings elaborate his comsological speculations, drawing on astronomy, physics and mathematics, and frequently implicating Mayan and Chinese calendrical systems. Included in Concordance are large-scale multi-faceted paintings that span the artist’s mature career from 1960 onwards. Concordance includes many rarely seen works from the artist's estate as well as a late 12-panel work, "The Great Pyramid," executed in 1979 and never before published.
Published by Dia Art Foundation. Edited by Karen Kelly. Essays by Lynne Cooke and Akira Lippit. Foreword by Michael Govan.
This book documents a year-long exhibition entitled Knots + Surfaces, at Dia Center for the Arts from January 2001 through January 2002, in which Diana Thater presented a large-scale, multiprojection video installation specifically designed to interact with the open architectural space of Dia's third-floor gallery. A charged environment, combining layered projections with a wall of clustered monitors, becomes a metaphorical charting of multidimensional space. Referring to a recent mathematical hypothesis that correlates a complex, six-dimesional spatial model to a map of a honey bee's dance, Thater expands her abiding concern with the intersection of nature and culture. Along with an introduction to both her work and the exhibition by Lynne Cooke, the book will include an essay on Thater's work by Akira Lippit.

Scenario is a retrospective of the work of Indonesian visual artist and filmmaker Fiona Tan, whose film May You Live in Interesting Times was awarded the prize for best Dutch debut at the Netherlands Film festival. True to its title, the book is constructed as a scenario: a storyboard that evokes its own story but also offers glimpses of as-yet-unrealized projects and dreams, mixing Tan's work with "found" photographs and images. It provides perhaps the most interesting look yet at Tan's concentrated oeuvre of film and video installations, which consider the recycling of history as visual material and problems concerning cultural identity and migration. Scenario includes correspondence between Fiona Tan and John Berger, a conversation between Tan and filmmaker Heddy Honigmann, a story written especially for the book by Oscar van den Boogaard, and essays by Lynn Cooke and Stephan Schmidt-Wulffen.
Published by Societe des Expositions du Palais des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles. Essay by Lynne Cooke.
For At Home and in the World, her exhibition at the Palais de Beaux-Arts in Brussels, Elaine Reichek explores and innovates on the tradition of the sampler--a didactic tool used in learning embroidery that can often be a work of art in itself--by recasting works of visual art--including pieces by Georges Seurat, Andy Warhol, Lawrence Weiner, Jenny Holzer, and Barbara Krueger--as well as literary quotations--from Moby Dick, Ovid, Tennyson, Kierkegaard, Woolf and A.S. Byatt, among others--into the form of samplers. Working in a subversive postmodern tradition that includes both the artwork of Raymond Pettibon and the literary essays of Susan Howe, Reichek rereads high art through the prism of domestic craft, challenging the patriarchal and modernist assumptions that still permeate our culture. Uniquely and cleverly designed, this volume documents Reichek's work in full color.

A modern update of the Medieval trade manuals--the 'come-along-with-me' (vade mecum) of Medieval craftsmen--Words of Wisdom: A Curator's Vade Mecum is an invaluable guidebook for anyone interested in contemporary art and the practice of curating. In over fifty short essays, this compendium offers advice to a new generation of curators from veterans of contemporary art exhibitions who, over the past 25 years, have played a crucial role in shaping what we see today, and how we see it. While providing an intimate look at the minds of these master curators, Words of Wisdom also establishes the curator's craft as an important vocation that has changed tremendously over the past quarter-century. In the course of their musings, the curators offer behind-the-scenes insights into influential exhibitions and institutions and the contemporary art world they represent. Among the contributors are Jean-Christophe Amman, director of the Museum of Modern Art, Frankfurt, Germany; Donna de Salvo, curator at the Tate Gallery, London; Richard Flood, chief curator at the Walker Arts Center, Minneapolis; independent curator Hans Ulrich Obrist; and Marcia Tucker, founding director of the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York.
Published by Dia Art Foundation. Essays by Lynne Cooke, John Elderfield. Foreword by Michael Govan.
This book documents Bridget Riley's current exhibition at New York's Dia Center for the Arts, Reconnaissance, which brings together seminal paintings from the early 1960s, landmark works esteemed via word-of-mouth but not often seen. These works are shown together with others from the later 60s and 70s to chart the early career of this highly influential but--especially in the US--all-too-little-known artist. Riley's dynamically abstract paintings from the 1960s and 1970s long ago secured her a permanent place in the history of postwar art. Despite this widespread acclaim, Riley's work has been exhibited in the US only on a few occasions. In Reconnaissance, the artist's first solo exhibition to originate in the US in decades, the public will be able to examine a selection from Riley's compelling body of early work. Additionally, Riley has executed a wall drawing for Dia's galleries, which is documented here.

Published by Dia Art Foundation. Artwork by Ann Hamilton. Text by Lynne Cooke.
For Tropos, Ann Hamilton spread a sea of horsehair across the 5000 square feet of a factory building. Varying in color and sewn together in bundles, this hair was navigated by visitors, while in the middle of the room sat a lone figure at a desk, whose task was to read and burn each line of a text in a book; from somewhere outside the building came the strangulated garble of a man attempting speech. This surreal environment, with its attendant sense of dream landscape and half-formed associations, is classic Hamilton, at once seductive and disorienting. This book records the project.
