Selections from The Judith Rothschild Foundation Contemporary Drawings Collection

Published by The Museum Of Modern Art, New York.
Edited by Christian Rattemeyer. Text by Gary Garrels, Christian Rattemeyer, Harvey S. Shipley Miller.

Formed by Harvey S. Shipley Miller and donated to The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 2005, The Judith Rothschild Foundation Contemporary Drawings Collection was conceived to be the widest possible cross-section of contemporary drawing made primarily within the past 20 years, surveying gestural and geometric abstraction, representation and figuration, systems-based and Conceptual work, as well as appropriation and collage. While the collection primarily focuses on the work of artists living and working in what are widely regarded as five major centers of visual art today--New York, Los Angeles, London/Glasgow, Berlin and Cologne/Düsseldorf--it also includes artists from 30 countries throughout Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa. Established artists such as Jasper Johns are represented through examples of recent work, while others, such as Joseph Beuys and Philip Guston, are highlighted through core historic groupings, and still others are shown in a comprehensive overview of their careers, including Alighiero e Boetti, Lee Bontecou, Ray Johnson, Anish Kapoor, Franz West, Bruce Conner and Hannah Wilke. Minimal and Conceptual drawings from the 1960s and 1970s acquired by the foundation from New York-based collectors Eileen and Michael Cohen are juxtaposed with major works by self-taught artists including James Castle, Henry Darger, Ele D'Artagnan and Pearl Blauvelt, representing a diverse anthology of works on paper. Additional highlights, both contemporary and historic, include works by Tomma Abts, Kai Althoff, Robert Crumb, Tacita Dean, Peter Doig, Angus Fairhurst, Mark Grotjahn, Richard Hamilton, Eva Hesse, Charline von Heyl, Christian Holstad, Roni Horn, Ellsworth Kelly, Martin Kippenberger, Roy Lichtenstein, Sherrie Levine, Lee Lozano, Agnes Martin, Cady Noland, Jennifer Pastor, Elizabeth Peyton, Adrian Piper, Paul Thek, Richard Wright and Andrea Zittel. Reminiscent of the classic 2002 MoMA catalogue Drawing Now and published to accompany a major 2009 exhibition at The Museum, this volume brings together approximately 250 representative works.

Oranges and Sardines: Conversations on Abstract PaintingOranges and Sardines: Conversations on Abstract Painting

Published by Hammer Museum.
Text by Gary Garrels.

For Oranges and Sardines, curated by Gary Garrels of Los Angeles' Hammer Museum, six contemporary abstract painters--Mark Grotjahn, Wade Guyton, Mary Heilmann, Amy Sillman, Charline von Heyl and Christopher Wool--present a recent painting alongside the work of other artists who have impacted their work. The conceit is clever, considering that artists are often an invaluable source of information on other artists. The result is a constellation of diverse works by the aforementioned six painters and their influences, who include Paul Klee, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Francis Bacon, David Hockney, Willem de Kooning, Philip Guston, Eva Hesse, Pablo Picasso and Dieter Roth. This well-illustrated volume examines--through the eyes and minds of artists--how art can illuminate art. Featuring sharp design by Los Angeles-based Green Dragon Office, it includes in-depth interviews between Garrels and each of the six featured contemporary artists.

Eden's Edge: Fifteen L.A. ArtistsEden's Edge: Fifteen L.A. Artists

Published by Hammer Museum.
Text by Gary Garrels.

Published to accompany the Hammer Museum's Summer 2007 exhibition, Eden's Edge, this exploration of art made in Los Angeles during the past decade crosses generations, mediums, and materials to link 15 artists of singular personal vision, whether internationally established or not-yet-discovered. The artists--who include Ginny Bishton, Mark Bradford, Liz Craft, Sharon Ellis, Matt Greene, Elliott Hundley, Stanya Kahn and Harry Dodge, Monica Majoli, Rebecca Morales, Matthew Monahan, Lari Pittman, Ken Price, Jason Rhodes, Anna Sew Hoy and Jim Shaw--all track, via their work and vision, a persistent consciousness of change and contradiction. The works collected here are intensely crafted and conjure richly imagistic worlds in which landscape and figure fracture and metamorphose. Together, they establish a generational continuum, integrating newly emerging artists with their more established peers. This clothbound volume includes a critical essay by curator Gary Garrels that contextualizes both the exhibition and the artists' work within the art and culture of southern California, the international art scene, and the trends of the last decade. It includes an entry, a biography, a selected exhibition history and a bibliography for each of the 15 artists.

Plane Image: A Brice Marden RetrospectivePlane Image: A Brice Marden Retrospective

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Essays by Gary Garrels, Richard Shiff, Brenda Richardson, Carol C. Mancusi-Ungaro and Michael Duffy.

In the autumn of 2006, The Museum of Modern Art will present Brice Marden: A Retrospective, the artist's first major American retrospective. The exhibition, which will travel to San Francisco and Berlin, will constitute an unprecedented gathering of Marden's work, with more than 50 paintings and an equal number of drawings, balanced across the artist's career. The accompanying catalogue is the first book to take readers through the full course of Marden's work as it has developed over more than 40 years from the early 1960s to the present, showing his gradual, deliberate evolution, along with his constant exploration of light, color and surface at every turn. Marden's first 20 years of work, characterized by the luminous monochrome panels for which he won his first acclaim, will for the first time appear alongside the celebrated production of the past 20 years, which followed a shift in the mid-1980s to calligraphic gestures in shimmering grounds, and another shift in the past decade to heightened color. Two of Marden's newest paintings appear here for the first time. Gary Garrels interprets Marden's work and places it in historical context. Carol C. Mancusi-Ungaro, of the Center for the Technical Study of Modern Art at Harvard, examines issues of materials, processes and conservation. Richard Shiff, Brenda Richardson and Michael Duffy explore Marden's early use of a grid and his engagement with time and space in the studio, as well as his observation of the elemental qualities of nature, his representational links to nature, and the distinctive emotional effects of the abstract monochrome works for which he was initially recognized. Marden himself addresses his working methods in an interview, and a comprehensive chronology, exhibition history and bibliography close the book out.

Drawing from The Modern: 3 Volume SetDrawing from The Modern: 3 Volume Set

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Essays by Jodi Hauptman, Gary Garrels and Jordan Kantor.

Many of the key achievements in art of the last 125 years have been worked out on paper. From pictorial investigations that expanded the possibilities of vision to the invention of entirely new kinds of media, drawing has been the perfect laboratory for avant-garde experimentation. Drawing from the Modern traces such groundbreaking innovation through the unparalleled holdings of the drawings collection of The Museum of Modern Art. This three-volume set consists of Drawing from the Modern 1880-1945, with work by Kurt Schwitters, Georgia O'Keeffe and Paul Cezanne, among many others; Drawing from the Modern, 1945-1975, with work by Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Louise Bourgeois, Dan Flavin et al.; and Drawing from the Modern, 1975-2005 featuring Bruce Nauman, Gerhard Richter, Martin Kippenberger, Kara Walker and Luc Tuymans, to name just a few. Together these three deluxe volumes detail both the blossoming of different art positions on a broad, international scale, and the coming of age of drawing as an independent--and for many artists, primary--mode of expression.

Cai Guo-Qiang: Light CycleCai Guo-Qiang: Light Cycle

Explosion Project for Central Park

Published by Asia Society/Creative Time.
Essays by Peter Eleey. Foreword by Vishakha Desai and Anne Pasternak. Introduction by Gary Garrels.

Commissioned to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Central Park, Cai's Light Cycle fireworks display lit the New York sky with a circle of explosions on a September night in 2003. This 24-page accordion book documents it all from planning to performance, executed by the famous Grucci fireworks family. Separating the book's hardbound cloth covers reveals a continuous folded sheet with reproductions of Cai's gunpowder drawings (made by burning scant gunpowder on paper) on one side and photographs of the event and text on the other. In an interview, the artist compares his drawings to “love-making” and explains some technical aspects of his displays, such as a computer chip in each explosive shell.

Drawing from The Modern, Volume 2: 1945-1975Drawing from The Modern, Volume 2: 1945-1975

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Essay by Gary Garrels.

Visual art in the period following World War II witnessed landmark transformations. Today, drawing provides a powerful and vigorous device for reexamining the art of that period, and for renewing appreciation of the extraordinary achievements of well-known artists--and for discovering others. Even though the art of these years saw radical departures and shifts, drawing, which is among the most traditional of media, played a crucial and consistent role in the work of a great majority of the most significant artists. Drawing from the Modern, 1945-1975, surveys the drawing of the period through the unparalleled holdings of the drawings collection of The Museum of Modern Art. The postwar period saw the development of Abstract Expressionism in New York, followed by Pop art, Minimal art, and Conceptual art, and the Museum's collection has exceptional strength in these areas. Abstract drawings by Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Barnett Newman open this volume, followed by works by such key figures as Jasper Johns, Ellsworth Kelly and Cy Twombly. Next, drawings by Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg and Andy Warhol signal the arrival of a new figurative art at the forefront of creativity. But reductive and abstract art kept pace, and the Museum's collection offers a breathtaking array of drawings by Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Eva Hesse, Sol LeWitt, Brice Marden, Agnes Martin, Richard Serra and numerous others. What constitutes “progress” in art is questioned today, and it is no longer possible to see the development of art as a straight line, with synchronicity among places and geographies. But drawing, by its very nature, encourages established understandings to be examined and accepted values to be reappraised. Many of the artists represented here defy easy categorization, including Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, Vija Celmins, Bruce Conner, Ray Johnson, Jim Nutt and Myron Stout. The resurgence of European art is represented by drawings by Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Marcel Broodthaers, Piero Manzoni, Henri Michaux, Mario Merz and Sigmar Polke, among others. A number the most important artists working in Latin America in the postwar period are also represented, including Jorge de la Vega, Gego, León Ferrari, Hélio Oiticica and Mira Schendel. While neither the collection nor this volume is encyclopedic, the spirit and achievements of postwar art are distilled and amply celebrated here.

Latin American & Caribbean Art: Moma At El MuseoLatin American & Caribbean Art: Moma At El Museo

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York/El Museo del Barrio.
Edited by Miriam Basilio, Fatima Bercht, Deborah Cullen, Gary Garrels and Luis Enrique Pérez-Oramas. Essays by RocÌo Aranda-Alvarado, Miriam Basilio, Fatima Bercht, Deborah Cullen, Gary Garrels, Harper Montgomery, Luis Enrique Pérez-Oramas, et al.

MoMA at El Museo: Latin American and Caribbean Art from the Collection of The Museum of Modern Art is, as the title suggests, an exhibition highlighting artworks selected from this major collection. But it is so much more: A collaborative effort between the two New York museums, this exhibition and accompanying catalogue present over 100 paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints, and illustrated books produced by artists from Latin America and the Caribbean, selected from MoMA. Notably, it is this very collection that has created the paradigm of "Latin American Art" and has helped shape the ever-burgeoning art historical and cultural studies in this area, both in the United States and abroad. The curators' introductory texts provide analyses of the collection within the broader context of modern art in Latin America; a history of the development of the collection focusing on major acquisitions, groundbreaking exhibitions, and influential curators and staff involved in the formation and study of the collection; and discuss the curatorial premises for MoMA at El Museo. Short essays follow on key works added in each phase of the collection's growth, examples of which include work by Diego Rivera, Jos» Clemente Orozco, Antonio Berni, and David Alfaro Siqueiros in the 1930s; Joaquin Torres-Garcia, Matta, Roberto Berdecio, and Wifredo Lam in the 1940s; Rafael Montanez Ortiz, Jesus Raphael Soto, Marisol, and Fernando Botero in the 1960s; and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Los Carpinteros, and Vik Muniz today.

Public InformationPublic Information

Desire, Disaster, Document

Published by San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
Artwork by Andy Warhol, Andy Warhol. Photographs by Robert Frank. Text by Gary Garrels, Jim Lewis, Abigail Solomon-Godeau.

Photographic imagery is ubiquitous in our culture, and artists have a particularly complex relationship to the technological image, both as creators and as critics of our culture. From Robert Frank and Andy Warhol to Felix Gonzalez-Torres and Chantal Akerman, understanding how these images are used and how they act on us has emerged as a defining preoccupation of postwar art. The nature of the photographic image and the role of the individual in a media-saturated society are the subjects of the landmark exhibition and accompanying catalogue Public Information: Desire, Disaster, Document, presented by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art on the occasion of the opening of its new building, designed by Mario Botta. Works by 15 artists spanning four decades trace the idea of the photographic: Nan Goldin's diaristic portraits, Andy Warhol's disaster series, Gerhard Richter's soft-focus photo paintings, John Baldessari's photoemulsion paintings and Larry Clark's videos and collages. Framing the profound questions posed by these artists, authors Gary Garrels, Jim Lewis, Christopher Phillips, Sandra Phillips, Robert Riley and Abigail Solomon-Godeau analyze how the use and manipulation of photographic images shape our culture. Essential reading for anyone interested in post-war and contemporary art and photography, the book features plate sections, essays and an exhibition checklist as well as a bibliography and exhibition history for each artist.
