Boxed: A Visual History and the Art of BoxingBoxed: A Visual History and the Art of Boxing

Published by Damiani/Paul Kasmin Gallery.
Edited and with text by Carlos Dzine Rolon. Text by Franklin Sirmans.

For the artist Carlos Rolon (born 1970), aka Dzine, boxing loomed large in his childhood household; he recalls watching a young Howard Cosell on ABC’s Wide World and the infamous No Mas fight with Roberto Duran and Sugar Ray Leonard--occasions that also provided opportunities to bond with his father. On the heels of Dzine’s previous publication Nailed, Boxed looks at how artists have used boxing as a metaphor or have been otherwise inspired by the sport. Alongside new work from Dzine, it includes art by Andreas Gursky, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Gary Simmons, Satch Hoyt, Rashid Johnson, Christopher Wool, Cheryl Dunn, David Hammons, Ed Ruscha, Jeff Koons, George Bellows, Yoshitomo Nara, Jules De Balincourt, Paul Pfeiffer, Claes Oldenburg, Glenn Ligon, Lyle Owerko, Chris Mosier and Ed Paschke, among others.

Lorna Simpson: Works on PaperLorna Simpson: Works on Paper

Published by Aspen Art Press.
Text by Hilton Als, Connie Butler, Franklin Sirmans, Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson, Anna Deveare Smith.

One of the leading artists of her generation, Lorna Simpson (born 1960) came to prominence in the mid-1980s through her photographic and textual works that challenged conventional attitudes toward race, gender and cultural memory with a potent mixture of formal elegance and conceptual rigor. Published on the occasion of her 2013 exhibition at Aspen Art Museum, Lorna Simpson: Works on Paper highlights four recent bodies of work on paper that explore the complex relationship between the photographic archive and processes of self-fashioning, including a new group of works being developed during her time as the AAM’s 2013 Jane and Marc Nathanson Distinguished Artist in Residence. As in Simpson’s earlier works, these new drawings and collages take the African-American woman as a point of departure, continuing her longstanding examination of the ways that gender and culture shape the experience of life in our contemporary multiracial society. This beautifully illustrated catalogue features new scholarship by New Yorker staff writer Hilton Als, MoMA Chief Curator of Drawings, Connie Butler, LACMA Chief Curator of Contemporary Art, Franklin Sirmans, and the AAM’s Nancy and Bob Magoon CEO and Director, Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson.

Black Performance in Contemporary Art

Published by Contemporary Arts Museum Houston.
Edited and with introduction by Valerie Cassel Oliver. Forward by Bill Arning. Text by Yona Backer, Naomi Beckwith, Valerie Cassel Oliver, Tavia Nyong'o, Clifford Owens, Franklin Sirmans.

Radical Presence chronicles the emergence of black performance practices in contemporary art. Where hegemony has tended to define black performance art as an extension of theater, this publication provides a critical framework for discussing the history of black performance within the visual arts over the last 50 years. Over five decades of performance art practices by such artists as Benjamin Patterson, David Hammons, Senga Nengudi, Lorraine O’Grady, Adrian Piper and Ulysses Jenkins are presented along representatives of subsequent generations such as Carrie Mae Weems, William Pope.L, Terry Adkins, Sherman Fleming, Danny Tisdale, Lyle Ashton Harris, Clifford Owens, Kalup Linzy and Adam Pendleton, among others. This publication includes a DVD compilation of performance excerpts and is an essential tool for any understanding of the field.

Tavares Strachan: Orthostatic ToleranceTavares Strachan: Orthostatic Tolerance

It Might Not Be Such a Bad Idea if I Never Went Home

Published by MIT List Visual Arts Center.
Text by Maxwell Heller, Franklin E. Sirmans.

Since 2006, Tavares Strachan has been working on a body of work investigating orthostatic tolerance--our capacity to withstand deep-sea and outer-space pressure. Strachan's films, examined here, show the artist in training for his experiments with gravitational stress. The book also is a record of Strachan's artists' residence at MIT.

Jean-Michel Basquiat: 1981, the Studio of the StreetJean-Michel Basquiat: 1981, the Studio of the Street

Published by Charta/ Deitch Projects.
Introduction by Jeffrey Deitch. Interviews with Fred "Fab 5 Freddy" Brathwaite, Arto Lindsay, Annina Nosei, Diego Cortez, Glenn O'Brien, Text by Suzanne Mallouk, Gerard Basquiat, Michael Holman. Chronology by Franklin Sirmans.

In 1981 Jean-Michel Basquiat made the momentous transition from the street to the studio. He had attracted considerable attention with his Times Square Show the summer before, and reinforced that nascent notoriety with a wall of phenomenal works in Diego Cortez's New York/New Wave at P.S. 1, which opened the following winter. A few months later, the dealer Annina Nosei offered Basquiat an independent space in which to prepare work for her September group show, Public Address. He was only 20. Between the world of spray-painted poetry and what critic Peter Schjeldahl called "New York big-painting aesthetics" lies a fantastic coming-of-age: Jean-Michel Basquiat: 1981: The Studio of the Street includes paintings and drawings on everything from note cards to sheet metal to a leather jacket and conventional canvas. In them, as throughout his career, Basquiat married an exuberant spontaneity and art-brut sensibility with a firm command of not only art materials but art history. He would go on to define the 80s Neo-Expressionist idiom, and to remain its most compelling representative. The Studio of the Street examines this charged point of contact in works that show the artist's progression from text to text-and-image, from found materials to traditional canvasses, and from pure drawing to his uniquely evocative hybrid of drawing and painting.
