George Herms: The River BookGeorge Herms: The River Book

Published by Hamilton Press.
Text by Dave Hickey, George Herms.

George Herms: The River Book is the first-ever comprehensive publication on acclaimed and pivotal California assemblage artist George Herms (born 1935). The handsome, two-volume slipcased book covers his earliest works from the 1960s, through his influential assemblages from the 1970s to today, as well as his work on such films as Easy Rider, his set designs for poet and playwright Michael McClure and dancer/choreographer Fred Herko, and his fascinating collaborations with, among others, Diane di Prima and Wallace Berman, for his LOVE Press series of hand-printed books. Interspersed throughout are comments by Herms on various works and on his creative ethos. Also included is a trove of never-before-seen archival photographs of Herms' friends, such as Wallace and Tosh Berman, Fred Herko, Diane di Prima, Kirby Doyle and Ray Johnson, as well as of Herms himself. A bonus DVD showcases the entirety of Herms' opera The Artist's Life. Renowned art critic Dave Hickey provides an insightful look at the artist and his milieu, and the artist himself offers witty and informative text throughout. This is truly an essential book for anyone interested in California art, the Beats, avant-garde theater and film, and fine-art printing.

Albert ContrerasAlbert Contreras

Published by Marquand Books.
Text by Dave Hickey, Ed Schad, David Pagel, John Yau.

Los Angeles painter Albert Contreras (born 1933) first won public acclaim in the early 1960s, with monochrome paintings featuring a central disc motif. By the early 1970s, with the “dematerialization of art” in the air, Contreras’ pursuit of extreme reduction led him to cease painting altogether, and he spent the next two decades driving garbage trucks and resurfacing roads for the City of Los Angeles. He returned to painting in 1997 (following an intensive period of psychotherapy), producing relatively small, square-ish canvases with thick, gridded swathes of bright colors and glitter, seemingly inspired by the aesthetics of cupcake bakeries, cosmetics counters and custom car shops--canvases that critic David Pagel describes as “obscenely edible.” This first substantial Contreras monograph surveys the painter’s recent and older works.

John Chamberlain: ChoicesJohn Chamberlain: Choices

Published by Guggenheim Museum.
Text by Donna De Salvo, Susan Davidson, Dave Hickey, Helen Hsu, Adrian Kohn, Don Quaintance, Charles Ray.

John Chamberlain rose to prominence in the late 1950s with energetic, vibrant sculptures hewn from disused car parts, achieving a three-dimensional form of Abstract Expressionism that astounded critics and captured the imaginations of fellow artists. For a seven-year period in the mid-1960s, the artist abandoned automotive metal and turned to other materials. Motivated by scientific curiosity, Chamberlain produced sculptures in unorthodox media, such as urethene foam, galvanized steel, paper bags, mineral-coated Plexiglas and aluminum foil. Since returning in 1972 to metal as his primary material, Chamberlain limited himself to specific parts of the automobile, adding color to found car parts, dripping, spraying and patterning on top of existing hues to an often wild effect. In recent years, the artist has embarked on the production of a new body of work that demonstrates a decided return to earlier themes. John Chamberlain: Choices accompanies the Guggenheim Museum exhibition, which comprises 95 works, from the artist’s earliest monochromatic iron sculptures to the outsized foil creations he is working on today, encompassing shifts in scale, material and methods informed by the collage process that has been central to Chamberlain’s working method. This fully illustrated exhibition catalogue includes essays by Susan Davidson, Donna De Salvo, Dave Hickey, Adrian Kohn and Charles Ray with an extensive chronology by Helen Hsu and a lexicon by Don Quaintance.

Gary Hume: FlashbackGary Hume: Flashback

Published by Hayward Publishing.
Text by Dave Hickey. Interview by Caroline Douglas.

British artist Gary Hume (born 1962) first found international fame in the early 1990s, with his series of bold, abstract “door paintings.” As one of the leading “Young British Artists” (YBAs), his work was featured in Damien Hirst’s Freeze and Charles Saatchi’s Sensation exhibitions and he has exhibited internationally since, becoming best known for vibrant, large-scale paintings, executed in planes of bold, glossy color. A Turner Prize nominee and Royal Academician, Hume is a key figure in twentieth-century painting and a powerful influence on younger generations of contemporary artists. This beautifully presented hardback book is published to accompany the third exhibition in the Arts Council Collection’s acclaimed Flashback series, in which early acquisitions from key international artists are juxtaposed with newer work. Gary Hume joins Bridget Riley and Anish Kapoor in this popular series of survey publications.

Gary Hume: YardworkGary Hume: Yardwork

Published by Matthew Marks Gallery.
Text by Dave Hickey.

Gary Hume (born 1962) first found acclaim in London in the late 1980s, when his bold paintings of hospital doors, rendered at life-size scale in high-gloss hardware store paints on aluminum panels, drew much attention and ushered Hume into the ranks of the Young British Artists. Twenty years later, Yardwork features recent paintings and sculpture completed by Gary Hume in his upstate New York studio. The pictures explore familiar themes in Hume's work, including flowers, birds, doors and female figures. In the new work, however, the doors are now barn doors, as opposed to the hospital doors found in his earlier works; the blackbirds, roses and daisies are all things he sees from his window, not images drawn from books or media. Yardwork includes an essay by Dave Hickey that places Hume's paintings in the context of a group of artists the author names abstractionists of daily life.

Pia Fries: Painting 1990-2007Pia Fries: Painting 1990-2007

Published by Richter Verlag.
Text by Paul Good, Dave Hickey, Heinz Liesbrock, Dieter Schwarz.

Pia Fries combines a gluttonous love of thick paint with an energetic pleasure in driving it across the picture plane, so that one paint cluster leads or smears into another. More recently she has begun to deploy collage elements, heightening this 'pinball' method of composition in which paint dialogues with print. Dave Hickey writes of Fries' painting that "their exuberance promises the comforts of expression and delivers the randomized, chemical residue of industrial culture." This beautifully made volume from Richter surveys the Swiss-born painter's works from 1990 to 2007, and is therefore the broadest overview of her sensuous art to date.

Ed Ruscha: Catalogue Raisonné of the Paintings, Volume IIIEd Ruscha: Catalogue Raisonné of the Paintings, Volume III

Volume III, 1983-1987

Published by Steidl The Masters.
Edited by Robert Dean, Erin Wright. Text by Lawrence Weiner, Dave Hickey, Robert Dean.

Ed Ruscha, one of the most influential artists working today, and one of the great West Coast Pop artists, didn't start out as a painter. It was under the influence of teachers including Robert Irwin, Richards Ruben and Emerson Woelffer that he gave up his original goal of becoming a commercial artist to focus on fine art. This third volume in the ongoing documentation of his entire corpus of paintings captures him in his stride. As throughout the series, each painting, reproduced in color, is given a double-page spread with exhibition and bibliographic history. The artist's sketches for paintings are reproduced in facsimile. This volume contains 165 works, and, of particular note, includes a major public commission for the Philip Johnson-designed Miami-Dade Public Library, which was a turning point for Ruscha. Paintings done immediately prior to this commission can be seen as a summation of the artist's earlier preoccupations and techniques, while those done after the commission show a major shift in direction occasioned by the use of airbrush techniques to produce dark, atmospheric canvases with links to film noir and to such Los Angeles noir writers as Raymond Chandler. With an introductory essay by Robert Dean, a personal tribute by artist Lawrence Weiner, a chronology and a comprehensive bibliography and list of exhibitions.

Roni Horn: Index Cixous, 2003-05Roni Horn: Index Cixous, 2003-05

Published by Steidl.
Artwork by Roni Horn. Text by Dave Hickey.

Inspired by the philosopher and writer Hélène Cixous, which whom the photographer and artist Roni Horn has collaborated before, Index Cixous questions the nature of language in its most fundamental sense and proposes a version--one without words, but which can be read as any other. Both Horn and Cixous are concerned with communication wrought out of material space. Cixous writes about women's language arising from the female body, and she argues for a new language, one not in thrall to patriarchy but that acknowledges the life-giving force and history of the feminine.

Roy Lichtenstein: Prints 1956-1997Roy Lichtenstein: Prints 1956-1997

From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and Family Foundation

Published by Marquand Books, Inc./Museum of Art/Washington State University.
Essays by Dave Hickey and Elizabeth Brown. Introduction by Chris Bruce.

Think “Roy Lichtenstein” and you probably conjure up comic strip-based paintings and the colorful dots that comprise them. Lichtenstein intended his now iconic depictions of characters in tense, dramatic situations as commentaries on modern man's plight, in which the media--magazines, television and advertisements--shapes everything, including our emotions. Many of the same concepts behind the artist's paintings apply to the significant number of prints he produced in the latter part of this life. Focused on works created from the mid-50s until his death in 1997, this exhibition catalogue gives a full overview of Lichtenstein's printmaking accomplishments. Accompanying reproductions of the artist's works are essays by two outstanding scholars: Dave Hickey, a MacArthur Award-winning writer on art and culture; and Elizabeth Brown, who wrote her thesis on Lichtenstein at Columbia University, under the tutelage of the late Kirk Varnedoe. Approximately 40 prints are illustrated in this elegant, intimately-scaled book, which highlights a specific body of work from one of the most innovative forces in post-World War II art.

Robert Lehman Lectures On Contemporary Art No. 2Robert Lehman Lectures On Contemporary Art No. 2

Published by Dia Art Foundation.
Edited by Lynne Cooke, Karen Kelly Bettina Funcke. Essays by Beatriz Colomina, Juan Maidagan, Dave Hickey, Michael Newman, Robert Farris Thompson, David Sylvester and Marina Warner. Foreword by Michael Govan.

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.

Subjective RealitiesSubjective Realities

The Refco Collection of Contemporary Photography

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.

Anthony Caro: The BarbariansAnthony Caro: The Barbarians

Published by Mitchell-Innes & Nash.
Essay by Dave Hickey.

“Through the ages,” recounts Britain's foremost sculptor, Anthony Caro, “civilizations have often been subjected to unexpected assaults from warrior tribes. This happened when the Tartars overran Asia and the Huns and Goths plundered Rome. My Barbarians allude to this history.” Comprised of six life-size figures on horseback and one female figure in a chariot, Caro's recently-completed sculpture evokes an epic scale of history. Made of wood, leather, steel and ceramic elements, The Barbarians marks a new departure in the artist's distinguished career.

Richter 858

Published by The Shifting Foundation/SFMOMA.
Edited by David Breskin. Essays by Dave Hickey and Klaus Kertess. An Audio CD of music by Bill Frisell.

Gerhard Richter's abstractions are profound and beautiful, though perplexing. After all these years, they still present a curious challenge: what, exactly, are they? RICHTER 858 explores this question by focusing on one suite of extraordinary pictures painted in 1999, soon after his return to work after a silence caused by a stroke. Both investigation and celebration, this book brings together image, music and text in a uniquely compelling way: contributors include the great guitarist and composer Bill Frisell, two sharp-eyed critics, and a baker's dozen of prominent, award-winning poets. Housed in an aluminum slipcase, this lavish, oversized volume features the largest, most sumptuous, and most accurate reproductions of any Richter work. The eight paintings of the suite are shown at more than half-scale, and also, quite untraditionally, presented unbound on heavy paper in a pocket at the back of the book--allowing readers to mix, match, and re-present the work for themselves outside the confines of the printed volume. Forty details from the paintings are also reproduced in large-format, accompanied by the poems and texts. These brilliant passages--rich in incident and intervention, and ranging from the coolly sublime to the loudly riotous--make fascinating pictures in their own right. Additionally, a double gatefold opens to show all eight paintings in panoramic view. In essence, RICHTER 858 presents an elegant, if raucous, meeting ground for our most important contemporary artist and a diverse chorus of American music, poetry, and criticism.

Roy Lichtenstein: Brushstrokes, Four DecadesRoy Lichtenstein: Brushstrokes, Four Decades

Published by Mitchell-Innes & Nash.
Essay by Dave Hickey.

Whiz! Bang! Pop! Blam! Roy Lichtenstein has rendered everything from a comic-book cell and a warplane to a country landscape and a turkey in his trademark style drawn from printed advertisements and cartoons. A master mixer of popular culture and high art, Lichtenstein's painterly use of Benday dots and heavy outlines turned oil paintings into something they had never before come close to. This catalogue chronicles the evolution of his brushstroke and painterly style from the late 50s through the 90s, complete with photographs of the artist at work, and reproductions of paintings, drawings, and sculptures. Critic and scholar Dave Hickey's highly original and compelling personal essay challenges the way we traditionally think about Lichtenstein's art.

The Magic HourThe Magic Hour

The Convergence of Art and Las Vegas

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Edited by Alex Farquharson. Essays by Dave Hickey, Libby Lumpkin, Ralph Rugoff, Robert Venturi. Includes work by: Reverend Ethan Acres, Philip Argent, David Batchelor, Tim Bavington, Jane Callister, Karen Carson, E. Chen, Marcel Duchamp, Jane Hilton, Jim Isermann, Steven Izenour, Rem Koolhaas, Liberace, Silke Otto-Knapp, Raymond Pettibon, Jack Pierson, David Reed, Victoria Reynolds, Denise Scott Brown, Jim Shaw, Bridget Smith, Jeffrey Vallance, Andy Warhol, Yek.

Is Las Vegas, the capital of the Western entertainment complex, also set to become the capital of art? A large number of artists live there or visit often, Venice was partially reconstructed there, and the Bellagio resort and casino house an art collection that includes El Grecos and Picassos promoted as if they were Frank Sinatra or the Beach Boys. At this historic moment, art is losing the visionary power to which it used to lay claim and is instead drawing closer to the forms of the entertainment industry, from lifestyle and game shows to Hollywood cinema and music videos. In a paradoxical turn of events, the society of the spectacle has become a reality and Las Vegas is becoming the capital of the future culture industry. Dave Hickey and art historian Libby Lumpkin moved to Las Vegas in the early 90s. For Hickey, the Strip has served as a platform for his critique of the elitist and purist structure of values within the art world.

In 1992, Denise Scott Brown, Robert Venturi, and Steven Izenour published Learning from Las Vegas, providing a seminal and radical reevaluation of the vernacular architecture of what was then one of America's most culturally neglected cities.

Air GuitarAir Guitar

Essays on Art and Democracy

Published by Art Issues Press.
Text by Dave Hickey.

The 23 essays (or "love songs") that make up the now classic volume Air Guitar trawl a "vast, invisible underground empire" of pleasure, through record stores, honky-tonks, art galleries, jazz clubs, cocktail lounges, surf shops and hot-rod stores, as restlessly on the move as the America they depict. Air Guitar pioneered a kind of plain-talking in cultural criticism, willingly subjective and always candid and direct. A valuable reading tool for art lovers, neophytes, students and teachers alike, Hickey's book--now in its eighth printing--has galvanized a generation of art lovers, with new takes on Norman Rockwell, Robert Mapplethorpe, Stan Brakhage, Andy Warhol and Perry Mason. In June 2009, Newsweek voted Air Guitar one of the top 50 books that "open a window on the times we live in, whether they deal directly with the issues of today or simply help us see ourselves in new and surprising ways," and described the book as "a seamless blend of criticism, personal history, and a deep appreciation for the sheer nuttiness of American life."
Dave Hickey (born 1939) is one of today's most revered and widely read art writers. He has written for Rolling Stone, Art News, Art in America, Artforum and Vanity Fair among many others.
