Henry TaylorHenry Taylor

Published by MoMA PS1.
Text by Laura Hoptman, Naima Keith. Interview by Peter Eleey.

Los Angeles-based artist Henry Taylor (born 1958) applies his brush both to canvas and to unconventional materials--suitcases, crates, cereal boxes, cigarette packs--using everyone and everything around him as source material. While Taylor drew and painted in his youth, he studied art formally only later in life, attending the California Institute of the Arts after working for ten years as a psychiatric nurse at a state hospital. This experience sharpened his interest in, and appreciation for, individuals from all economic and social backgrounds, and encouraged a passion to create an intensely empathetic style of portraiture. Published on the occasion of Taylor’s 2012 exhibition at MoMA PS1, where the artist established his New York studio for the duration of the show, the publication explores Taylor’s ambitious and deeply humanistic project to present a worldview defined by the people--extraordinary and ordinary--with whom we live.

Andrew Wyeth: Christina’s WorldAndrew Wyeth: Christina’s World

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Text by Laura Hoptman.

In 1948 Andrew Wyeth produced what would become one of the most iconic paintings in American art: a desolate landscape featuring a woman lying in a field, that he called “Christina’s World.” The woman in the painting, Christina Olson, lived in Cushing, Maine, where Wyeth and his wife kept a summer house. She suffered from polio, and was paralyzed from the waist down; Wyeth was moved to portray her when he saw her one day crawling through the field towards her house. “Christina’s World” was to become one of the most well-loved and most scorned works of the twentieth century, igniting heated arguments about parochialism, sentimentality, kitsch and elitism that have continued to dog the art world and Wyeth’s own reputation, even after the artist’s death in 2009. An essay by MoMA curator Laura Hoptman revisits the genesis of the painting, discussing Wyeth’s curious focus, over the course of his career, on a deliberately delimited range of subjects and exploring the mystery that continues to surround the enigmatic painting.

George Condo: Mental StatesGeorge Condo: Mental States

Published by Hayward Publishing.
Text by Ralph Rugoff, Laura Hoptman, Will Self, David Means.

Painter and sculptor George Condo (born 1957) has inhabited a broad swath of cultural contexts over his three-decade career, from the early-1980s East Village scene to a collaboration with William Burroughs to making album cover art for Phish and, most recently, Kanye West. Early in his career, Condo was friendly with Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring and briefly worked at Andy Warhol's Factory. Having been included in the Whitney Biennial in 1987, by 2010 he was once again judged so original that a bronze sculpture of his was placed in that year's Biennial. Condo's loose, imaginative approach to portraiture has distinguished him throughout the decades: "There was a time when I realized that the central focal point of portraiture did not have to be representational in any way," he said in 1992. "You don't need to paint the body to show the truth about a character. All you need is the head and the hands." George Condo: Mental States surveys the artist's career from 1982 to the present day, focusing on his portrait paintings but also including a selection of sculptural busts made in materials such as gold and bronze. Organized by theme, and including 100 images of artworks in addition to writings by Will Self, David Means, Ralph Rugoff and Laura Hoptman, this volume explores Condo's relationship to art history, popular culture and contemporary society.

Mamma AnderssonMamma Andersson

Published by Aspen Art Press.
Text by Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson, Dominic Molon, Laura Hoptman.

Swedish painter Mamma Andersson works between domestic interiors and the Nordic landscape, often layering imagery to create subtly haunting, dreamlike atmospheres. Drawing from a variety of sources--from the narrative suggestiveness of cinematic imagery to the physical space of theatrical sets--Andersson employs disjointed perspectives and mismatched spatial relationships to create an eerie sense of the otherworldly. Her palette is seductive yet muted, applied in both soft washes and thick brushstrokes, with blank areas sometimes left on the surface of the painting. Andersson's imagery often includes windows, reflections and depictions of other paintings, to further destabilize the spaces she paints. This volume is published on the occasion of Andersson's first one-person U.S. museum show at the Aspen Art Museum and provides a broad overview of her work.

Eva RothschildEva Rothschild

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Stuart Shave. Text by Michael Archer. Interview by Laura Hoptman.

One of Britain's leading young sculptors, Eva Rothschild reworks the austerities and textures of Minimalism into more fetish-inflected terrain. Sometimes emphatically geometric, sometimes resembling a Surrealist object, her works revolve around a now established repertoire of materials: metal, wood, Perspex, ceramic and leather. This volume, the only monograph in print, surveys her work to date.

54th Carnegie International54th Carnegie International

Published by Carnegie Museum of Art.
Essays by Gary Garrels, Laura Hoptman, Midori Matsui, Cuauhtémoc Medina, Francesco Bonami, Elizabeth Smith, Jean-Pierre Mercier, Branka Stipancic, and Elizabeth Thomas. Foreword by Richard Armstrong.

When Andrew Carnegie founded the Carnegie Museum of Art, his goal was to introduce the people of Pittsburgh to paintings by modern American and European artists. His vision for developing the collection program centered on purchases from an annual exhibition of modern art, now known as the Carnegie International. First held in 1896, the exhibition is the longest running survey of recent art in North America. What was modern then is contemporary in 2004, and the 54th Carnegie International promises to fulfill the exhibition's long-standing tradition of assembling the best contemporary art from around the world . A large-format, fully illustrated exhibition catalogue accompanies this tightly conceived exhibition of interrelated projects grouped around three small monographic exhibitions. These three exhibitions present the work of artists whose lengthy and influential oeuvres serve as touchstones for the larger exhibition. Catalogue entries prepared by a variety of writers with curatorial or critical expertise document the work of 40 artists from all over the world. The artists range in age from 28 to 80 and work in diverse media, including painting, sculpture, installation, performance, film, video, animation, and ceramics. (Artists will be announced in June 2004.) Each artist will be presented through a short essay accompanied by a three-page spread of color images, as well as comprehensive biographical and bibliographic information. The catalogue features an introduction by Laura Hoptman, curator, and expanded essays on three artists will punctuate the book.

Eight Propositions

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Essay by Laura Hoptman.

From John Currin's old-master-style Playboy bunnies to Elizabeth Peyton's fin-de-siecle portraits; from Julie Mehretu's dizzying, multilayered architectural landscapes to Shahzia Sikander's multipatterned miniature ones; from Yoshitomo Nara's angry and enigmatic little girls to Kara Walker's stereotypical negresses; and from Barry McGee's caricatures of urban graffiti to Matthew Ritchie's cosmological diagrams--drawing is back, if it ever went away. In contrast to the digitized, multimedia direction that much of contemporary art has taken in the past decade, drawing has become the major mode of expression for many of today's most important young artists. Drawing Now, published to accompany the first major survey of contemporary drawings at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 15 years, contains more than 100 color reproductions of work by 26 international artists, both well-known and emerging, that demonstrate the fascinating variety of methods and approaches, mediums and scales, apparent in this old-again, new-again art. Accompanying essays by the exhibition's curator, Laura Hoptman, explore eight themes that she perceives in the field--Drafting & Architecture, Mental Maps & Metaphysics, Popular Culture & National Culture, Fashion, Likeness & Allegory, Envisioning a City, Science & Art, Comics & Other Subcultures, Ornament & Crime--and provide key impulses behind drawing's recent resurgence.

Works by Mark Manders

Published by Art Gallery of York University.
Essay by Laura Hoptman. Foreword by Loretta Yarlow. Interview by Marije Langelaar.

At once a personal narrative and an encyclopedic gathering of material, Dutch artist Mark Manders' "Self-Portrait" began its life as a building in 1986. Since then, Manders has exhibited fragments of the project, an array of created and found objects, furniture, sculpture and drawings, keeping it in constant flux, changing its order with each showing.
