Isa Genzken: RetrospectiveIsa Genzken: Retrospective

Dedicated to Jasper Johns and Myself

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Text by Sabine Breitwieser, Laura Hoptman, Michael Darling, Jeffrey Grove, Lisa Lee.

Isa Genzken is arguably one of the most important and influential female artists of the past 30 years, yet the breadth of her achievement--which spans sculptures, paintings, photographs, collages, drawings, artist’s books, films, installations and public works--is still largely unknown in the United States. Published in conjunction with the first comprehensive retrospective of the artist’s epically diverse body of work, this publication encompasses Genzken’s work in all media over the past 40 years and is the most complete monograph on the artist available in English. Genzken has been part of the artistic discourse since she began exhibiting in the mid-1970s, but over the last decade a new generation of artists has been inspired by her radical inventiveness. The past ten years have been particularly productive for Genzken, who has created several bodies of work that have redefined assemblage for a new era. The catalogue presents Genzken’s career, through essays exploring the unfolding of her practice from 1973 until today, as well as an expansive plate section that provides a chronological overview of all her most important bodies of work and key exhibitions.
Born in Germany in 1948, Isa Genzken is one of Germany’s most important living artists. In the mid-1970s, as a student at Düsseldorf’s renowned Kunstakademie, she created geometric wood sculptures, which gained her early international acclaim (she exhibited these works at Documenta 7 and the Venice Biennale in 1982). Since then, she has made sculptures in plaster, concrete and epoxy resin. Ranging in size from maquettes to monumental, these abstract works are influenced by Minimalism, but are decidedly narrative. Paintings that examine ideas of surface and light, as well as photographs, collages, artist’s books and films, followed in the 1990s. From the late 90s on, Genzken began to create increasingly complex sculptural installations.

George Nelson: Architect, Writer, Designer, TeacherGeorge Nelson: Architect, Writer, Designer, Teacher

Published by Vitra Design Museum.
Edited by Jochen Eisenbrand, Alexander von Vegesack. Text by Stanley Abercrombie, Jochen Eisenbrand, Michael Darling, Barbara Fitton Hauss, Mathias Remmele.

2008 marked the 100th birthday of George Nelson (1908-1986), one of the most influential figures in American design during the second half of the twentieth century. Nelson was not only a leading designer and notable architect, but also a prominent author, editor, lecturer, exhibition designer and a passionate photographer. This catalogue accompanied the first comprehensive retrospective of George Nelson's work. With eight essays by German and American design historians, the publication explores all aspects of Nelson's oeuvre, many of which are presented here for the first time. The catalogue also includes an illustrated list of works. The majority of illustrations, previously unpublished, come from the Nelson Estate in the Vitra Design Museum Archive.

Two Face is an exhibition by Ballroom Marfa artists-in-residence Aaron Curry (born 1972) and Thomas Houseago (born 1972).

Target Practice: Painting Under Attack 1949-78

Painting Under Attack 1949-78

Published by Seattle Art Museum.
Edited by Michael Darling. Text by Graham Bader, Michael Darling, Elizabeth Mangini, Mika Yoshitake.

Target Practice: Painting Under Attack 1949-78 is an international historical survey of the "attacks" that painting endured (and survived) in the years following World War II. For the artists discussed here, coming after Abstract Expressionism, painting had arrived at an impasse, and they devised ways to overcome its existing conventions. This phenomenon occurred all over the world, and Target Practice documents how and why artists felt compelled to shoot, rip, tear, burn, erase, nail, unzip and deconstruct painting in order to usher in new ways of thinking about their art. It shows that such ideas were of concern to well-known artists like Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol, and also introduces lesser-known peers who were making equally challenging work.

L.A. Artists from the Rubell Family Collection

Published by Rubell Family Collection.
Introduction by Jason Rubell. Text by Mark Coetzee, Michael Darling, Michael Holte.

The inspiration for this book began at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art with Paul Schimmel's seminal 1992 exhibition Helter Skelter, which introduced to the world the wide-ranging, dissident influence of Los Angeles art. Upon seeing that show, Miami's Rubell family began to collect important L.A. artists of the 1980s and 90s. Recently, the Rubells added a new group of Los Angeles artists to their storied collection. This volume examines juxtapositions and interrelationships between the two generations, with work by Doug Aitken, John Baldessari, Chris Burden, Brian Calvin, Mark Grotjahn, Evan Holloway, Mike Kelley, Barbara Kruger, Paul McCarthy, Jason Meadows, Catherine Opie, Kaz Oshiro, Laura Owens, Raymond Pettibon, Charles Ray, Jason Rhoades, Jim Shaw, Yutaka Sone and Ricky Swallow, among others.

Painting In TonguesPainting In Tongues

Published by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
Essay by Michael Darling.

This is an in-depth examination of the work of seven international emerging artists who have embraced a novel and challenging approach to painting. By employing a varied mix of painterly styles, modes, sources and materials, as well as working against a single recognizable "hand," the featured artists have each crafted a complex and rich practice that offers innumerable avenues for exploration and growth. The artists Kai Althoff, Gillian Carnegie, Mark Grotjahn, Lucy McKenzie, Rodney McMillian, Ivan Morley and Anselm Reyle are guided by a variety of individual motivations and conceptual frameworks rather than the outward appearances of their canvases. Th book includes an essay by MOCA Assistant Curator Michael Darling.

Sam DurantSam Durant

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Artwork by Sam Durant. Contributions by Rita Kersting. Text by Kevin Young, Michael Darling, Georg Kulenkampff, Jeremy Strick.

Saucy and ironic, Sam Durant's works address utopias and their failures, crossing events from the recent American past to create relationships between the art historical, pop cultural, and political phenomena that have come to define popular culture over the past 35 years. Conceptually conceived, multimedia in practice, Durant's installations refer to such guiding figures as Robert Smithson, Mick Jagger, Neil Young, and Black Panther cofounder Huey Newton.

Roy McmakinRoy Mcmakin

A Door Meant as Adornment

Published by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
Artwork by Roy McMakin. Edited by Lisa Mark. Text by Michael Darling.

A crafty master craftsman with the heart of a conceptualist, Roy McMakin makes furniture that pokes fun at itself and renovates historic houses to challenge archetypes. A sculptor, conceptual artist, and furniture maker, his clients have ranged from Lisa Eisner and Tommy Lee Jones to the Getty Museum's Los Angeles offices. This first monograph on the artist, published on the occasion of the first museum exhibition of his work, traces how his creations have evolved over the years, from the nonfunctional yet allusive sculptural works of the early 1980s, moving through the production furniture made for his Los Angeles-based company, Domestic Furniture Co., and culminating in the “hillbilly modernist” sensibility of his present pieces. It considers his approach to materials, which ranges from the art-like, constructivist plywood furniture of his “classic” domestic period to the exotic hardwoods he currently employs. An interesting hybrid of artist and designer, McMakin makes magic, and it's all there behind A Door Meant as Adornment.
