Howardena Pindell: Paintings, 1974-1980Howardena Pindell: Paintings, 1974-1980

Published by Garth Greenan Gallery.
Text by Barry Schwabsky.

This publication provides an overview of Howardena Pindell's (born 1943) work from 1974 to 1980, an incredibly innovative period in which she began cutting the canvas in strips and sewing them back together, then building up the surface in elaborate stages. By the late 1970s, sequins, string, hair and even perfume had become a part of her painting.

Tal R: The VirginTal R: The Virgin

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Marie Nipper, Anne Mette Thomsen. Foreword by Jens Erik Sřrensen, Marie Nipper. Text by Marie Nipper, Barry Schwabsky, Sřren Ulrik Thomsen.

A mammoth scrapbook of drawings, paintings, textiles and collages by the popular Copenhagen-based, Israeli artist Tal R (born 1967), The Virgin combines new and old work to offer a total portrait of the vibrant oeuvre of this perennially popular artist. A special focus of the volume is the pigment paintings upon which he embarked in the early 2000s. Tal R’s riotously colorful works move freely between figuration and abstraction, and are characterized by an immediately evident ease with his media, and indeed with the very process of making art. As Barry Schwabsky writes, in an essay for this volume: “What’s obvious immediately is that Tal R is a natural. That means his being an artist, or something like an artist, isn’t exactly a choice--it’s something he could have avoided only at great cost.” This volume traces the breaks and continuities in Tal R’s two-decade career.

The large-scale forms of Scottish sculptor Karla Black (born 1972) evoke the pastel, towering layer cakes one might see in a bakery window. Materials include cellophane, plaster powder, lip gloss, glitter hair spray and tracing paper. This publication explores Black's tactile, confectionlike creations.

Tŕpies from Within, 1945-2011Tŕpies from Within, 1945-2011

Published by La Fábrica/Fundació Antoni Tŕpies/Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya.
Edited by Vicente Todolí. Introduction by Laurence Rassel, Pepe Serra. Text by Antoni Tŕpies, Dawn Ades, Barry Schwabsky.

Tŕpies from Within presents about 100 works from the artist’s studio and from the Fundació Antoni Tŕpies collection. Accompanying a major touring exhibition in Europe, it guides us through Tŕpies’ entire career, from the first Surrealist-inspired paintings of the 1940s, produced during his participation in the Dau al Set group, to works made shortly before his death in 2011. Thanks to the collaboration of the Tŕpies family, Tŕpies from Within offers the most intimate portrait yet published of the painter’s working environs, reproducing for the first time works that had remained virtually unseen or even unknown. As this volume makes plain, from almost the outset Tŕpies was committed to a materialist vision of materials and forms, which in the 1950s led him to make the celebrated "matter" paintings that earned him his international reputation. Rubble, mud, oil stains and graffiti all made their way onto Tŕpies’ canvases, which proposed abstraction as a "concretion" of the world rather than a transcendence of it (his signature crosses being "crossings-out" and not religious symbols): "choosing the earth over the vagaries of the spirit," as he writes in an accompanying essay here. Full of superbly reproduced color plates, Tŕpies from Within offers an important overview of this major force in postwar abstraction.

Mel Bochner: MonoprintsMel Bochner: Monoprints

Words, Words, Words...

Published by Two Palms, NY.
Text and interview by Barry Schwabsky.

New York City-based artist Mel Bochner (born 1940) is one of the founders of Conceptual and installation art in America. Monoprints is, surprisingly, the first book devoted solely to this important artist’s experimental printed works, even though Bochner has been producing text-based works for over 40 years. In the last 18 years, Bochner has produced a remarkable body of printed works in collaboration with Two Palms studio in New York, and Monoprints focuses on the often large-scale and incredibly physical text-based works made using the studio’s industrial hydraulic press. The book is illustrated with 34 full-color reproductions and includes an essay by critic Barry Schwabsky, as well as an interview by Schwabsky with Bochner, in which the artist explains the genesis and evolution of this central part of his art-making activities.

Edited by Nicola Lees, Lucia Pietroiusti. Introduction by Hans Ulrich Obrist. Foreword by Julia Peyton-Jones.

Hans Ulrich Obrist’s 2009 Poetry Marathon was an ambitious two-day poetry event held in Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa’s summer pavilion at the Serpentine Gallery, with performances from leading poets, writers, artists, philosophers, scholars and musicians.

Poetry Marathon includes contributions from Sean Bonney, Tracey Emin, Brian Eno, James Fenton, Gilbert & George, John Giorno, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Kenneth Goldsmith, Eugen Gomringer, Richard Hell, Geoffrey Hill, Joan Jonas, August Kleinzahler, Nick Laird, Sean Landers, Jonas Mekas, Maria Mirabel, Eileen Myles, Philippe Parreno, Holly Pester, Jeremy Reed, Gerhard Rühm, Barry Schwabsky and Agnčs Varda, among many others.

Mark GrotjahnMark Grotjahn

Published by Aspen Art Press.
Foreword by Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson. Text by Barry Schwabsky, Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson.

The paintings and drawings of Los Angeles artist Mark Grotjahn (born 1968) collide abstract and figurative elements into spider-webbed splinters that skew traditional perspective and dazzle the eye. This fully illustrated catalogue constitutes the first survey of his work from the late 1990s to the present and features essays by the art critic Barry Schwabsky and Aspen Art Museum Director Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson. The catalogue chronicles Grotjahn’s series of Butterfly paintings and drawings, in which he combines varying schemes of one-point perspective and a systematic investigation of color to mesmerizing effect; his penetrating flower and face paintings; and a recent series of “mask” sculptures that extend Grotjahn’s idiosyncratic investment in process and ritual in painting into three dimensions.

From Here to There: Alec Soth's AmericaFrom Here to There: Alec Soth's America

Published by Walker Art Center.
Edited by Siri Engberg. Interview by Bartholomew Ryan. Text by Geoff Dyer, Barry Schwabsky, Britt Salvesen, Siri Engberg, August Kleinzahler.

From Here to There: Alec Soth's America is the first exhibition catalogue to feature the full spectrum of the work of Alec Soth, one of the most interesting voices in contemporary photography, whose compelling images of everyday America form powerful narrative vignettes. Featuring more than 100 of the artist's photographs made over the past 15 years, the book includes new critical essays by exhibition curator Siri Engberg, curator and art historian Britt Salvesen and critic Barry Schwabsky, which offer context on the artist's working process, the photo-historical tradition behind his practice and reflections on his latest series of works. Novelist Geoff Dyer's "Riverrun"--a meditation on Soth's series Sleeping by the Mississippi--and August Kleinzahler's poem "Sleeping It Off in Rapid City" contribute to the thoughtful exploration of this body of work. Also included in the publication is a 48-page artist's book by Soth titled The Loneliest Man in Missouri, a photographic essay with short, diaristic texts capturing the banality and ennui of middle America's suburban fringes, with their corporate office parks, strip clubs and chain restaurants. This full-color publication includes a complete exhibition history, bibliography and interview with the artist by Bartholomew Ryan.
Alec Soth was born in 1969 and raised in Minnesota, where he continues to live and work. He has received fellowships from the McKnight Foundation (1999, 2004) and Jerome Foundation (2001), was the recipient of the 2003 Santa Fe Prize for Photography and was short-listed for the highly prestigious Deutsche Börse Photography Prize. His first monograph, Sleeping by the Mississippi, was published in 2004 to critical acclaim. Since then Soth has published Niagara (2006), Fashion Magazine (2007), Dog Days, Bogotá (2007) and The Last Days of W (2008). He is a member of Magnum Photos.

Rebecca WarrenRebecca Warren

Published by Walther König.
Edited by Hans Ulrich Obrist. Text by Julia Peyton-Jones, Martin Herbert, Barry Schwabsky.

With her classically formal clay and bronze sculptures, London-based Rebecca Warren positions herself within the predominantly male figurative tradition, which includes Degas and Rodin, while maintaining the contemporary stance of questioning her predecessors' authority. Here she presents new works alongside well-known pieces from throughout her career.

John Stezaker: FumettiJohn Stezaker: Fumetti

Published by Walther König.
Foreword by Janneke de Vries. Text by Barry Schwabsky, David Lillington, William Horner.

In the Fumetti series Stezaker continues his work with publicity film portraits. Instead of working with old bromides, however, he takes portraits from film annuals of the 1950s and 1960s and deconstructs perfect hair and makeup to make monstrous hybrids. Fumetti is an Italian comic tradition using photos instead of illustrations.

Pietro RoccasalvaPietro Roccasalva

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Alessandro Rabottini. Text by Barry Schwabsky, Eduardo Gnemmi.

This first monograph introduces one of the most promising Italian artists of the post-Cattelan generation. Roccasalva mixes conceptual rigor with hallucinatory extravaganza--always ending in a complex installation where the different elements act like characters performing an erratic script that probes art historical, philosophical, musical and literary references.

John StezakerJohn Stezaker

Rubell Family Collection

Published by Rubell Family Collection.
Text by Mark Coetzee, Michael Bracewell, Barry Schwabsky.

Combing the aisles of flea markets, used-book stores and postcard vendors, London-based artist John Stezaker filters and selects images that have a strong sense of déjŕ vu--Hollywood film stars of a bygone age, postcards of historical monuments, nature scenes and curiosities. Working with these faded images, he sets up compositions that seem to arbitrarily combine disparate components. Through these obstructions of action and recognition, Stezaker sets the viewer free to investigate the subconscious, the psychological, the philosophical--free from the actual. All of the work collected in this volume--published on the occasion of the artist's first solo exhibition at a public institution in the United States--is drawn exclusively from the internationally renowned Rubell Collection, Miami.

Chloe PieneChloe Piene

Carré d'Art - Musée d'Art Contemporain de Nîmes

Published by Carré d'Art-Musée d'Art Contemporain de Nîmes.
Text by Barry Schwabsky.

Known internationally for her powerful drawings, the work of Chloe Piene has been called brutal, delicate, figurative, forensic, erotic and fantastic. Her large scale video works utilize the greater sensory impact of noise, time, darkness and misrecognition to visibly extend into the more subterranean levels of experience. This new monograph marks the most in-depth representation of her work to date. It includes 40 reproductions of drawings with details, a new arrangement of an installation in three parts, an essay by Barry Schwabsky and an interview of the artist by the artist herself. Piene has shown extensively at institutions such as the Kunsthalle Bern, Switzerland, the Witte de With, the Netherlands and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.

The Painting of Modern LifeThe Painting of Modern Life

1960s to Now

Published by Hayward Publishing.
Text by Ralph Rugoff, Kaja Silverman, Barry Schwabsky, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Martin Herbert.

Andy Warhol’s silk screens, Gerhard Richter’s blurred images, Vija Celmins’ hyperrealism: some of the most influential developments in the history of contemporary art hinge on the use of photographs as source material.

Anj Smith: PaintingsAnj Smith: Paintings

Published by nyehaus/foundation 20 21.
Edited by Tim Nye. Text by Barry Schwabsky. Interview by Nicolaus Schafhausen.

The obsessively detailed paintings of the young London artist Anj Smith (born in 1978) were shown solo for the first time this Spring at Nyehaus Gallery in New York. This limited edition companion catalogue, designed by the award-winning New York firm, Helicopter, is the first publication of Smith's career. In it, portions of the paintings are enlarged so that the reader can truly conceive of the depth and intensity of Smith's labor. The work is loaded with references to the history of Western painting, and captures all sorts of pathological aspects to the contemporary human psyche, including our obsessions with newness and the unobtainable perfection promised by haute couture. Here, the artist's fetish for detail is incorporated into the design of the book itself. From the custom-printed ribbon which wraps around the cover to the flood of color on the inside of the French-folded sheets, this volume is an equally peculiar and imaginative context for the display of Smith's work. Roberta Smith reviewed the work featured in Smith's Nyehaus show in The New York Times: "Decadence, decay and the dark side have become the province of horror films and death-metal bands, but artists like Albrecht Dürer and Hieronymus Bosch laid the foundation for this centuries before record bins overflowed with kitsch versions of "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse." Now Anj Smith, a young British painter, is trying to reclaim part of that legacy."

Alex Katz: The SixtiesAlex Katz: The Sixties

Published by Charta.
Essay by Barry Schwabsky.

Alex Katz: The Sixties offers readers a selection of works by the pioneering painter who redefined portraiture and landscape in the 1960s. Bridging Pop and Minimalist sensibilities, these prints, paintings and other works are quintessential examples of style as content: Katz intimates the familiar rather than describe it, and prods the viewer's perception past preconceived ideas. Katz's work catalyzes an immediate response, both pictorially and emotionally, to the human condition. His work is included in collections at The Museum of Modern Art, the Hirschhorn, The Art Institute of Chicago, the Saatchi Collection and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Tokyo.

Vincent Desiderio: Paintings 1975-2005Vincent Desiderio: Paintings 1975-2005

Published by D.A.P./Marlborough Gallery.
Edited by Todd Bradway. Essays by Mia Fineman, Barry Schwabsky and Lawrence Weschler. Interview by Donald Kuspit.

The distinguished art critic Donald Kuspit reserved a chapter of his book, The Rebirth of Painting in the Late Twentieth Century, for Vincent Desiderio, who, he says, “pictures privacy, with great sensibility and masterful craft” and “Old Master brilliance.” This significant monograph, the first on the artist, will gain him the praise and audience his startling accomplishments and empathy deserve, as well as raise him to the top rank of contemporary painters, alongside Mark Tansey, Eric Fischl, John Currin and Gerhard Richter. More than 100 of Desiderio's works, some of them enormous canvases and triptychs, are faithfully reproduced here, and, thanks in part to five gatefolds their painstaking detail and sweeps of emotion can be truly appreciated. Desiderio's repeated themes and motifs, appearing in often perplexing narratives of great psychological complexity, strike at the intellect and the heart: art history (often manifested in piles of books open to paintings), human intimacy, heroic behavior and, perhaps most viscerally, the plight of the artist's handicapped son, Sam. Rounding out the volume are many works on paper and excerpts from the artist's sketchbooks, an interview by Donald Kuspit, and essays by Lawrence Weschler, Barry Schwabsky and Mia Fineman. Most of all, in Desiderio's highly original works, the viewer will rediscover painting's ability to both astonish and move.

Sue WilliamsSue Williams

A Fine Line

Published by Palm Beach Institute of Contemporary Art.
Artwork by Sue Williams. Edited by Michael Rush. Text by Barry Schwabsky.

From the doodled limp penises, spread legs, and equally spread orifices of her earlier, all-over paintings to the brilliant, bold, riotously colorful strokes of her latest painterly forays into abstraction, Sue Williams has been the cheeky and unabashedly ballsy purveyor of an aggressive, gorgeous, and graphic style all her own. Sue Williams: A Fine Line offers a close-up look at work from 1995 through 2001 alongside glowing, contextulaizing essays by noted critics Barry Schwabsky and Michael Rush.

The Art of Alighiero e Boetti

Published by Contemporary Arts Museum Houston.
Essays by Alighiero e Boetti, Paola Morsiani and Barry Schwabsky.

Taking a critical and comprehensive look at the work Boetti made in the wake of his association with the Arte Povera movement--when he renamed himself Alighiero e Boetti--this volume addresses his explorations of convention in Western culture. Highlighted here are Boetti's conceptual exploration of mathmatical orders and language, his participatory method of working and his conception of the role of the artist in society as a "shaman showman."

Architecture Without Shadow

Published by Poligrafa.
Edited by Gloria Moure. Essays by Abalos & Enguita, Joerg Bader, Catherine Hurzeler, Hans Irrek, Gloria Moure, Barry Schwabsky, Jeff Wall and Martin Tschanz. Introduction by Terence Riley.

Architecture has always been a natural subject matter for photographers, but for most of the twentieth century the practice of architectural photography has been a professional endeavor--anonymous photographs taken for clients for specific, commercial reasons. This book concerns itself with another aspect of the phenomenon: the photography of architecture as an art practice. It considers the work of seven contemporary photographers who use buildings in their work in a new way. In these photographs, they respond to the work of prominent architects with their own singular interpretations. Here are Andreas Gursky's photos of the Stockhom Library by Gunnar Asplund, Thomas Ruff's photos of several works by Herzog & de Meuron, Hiroshi Sugimoto's photos of Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye, as well as works by Candida Hofer, Jeff Wall, Gunther Forg and Balthasar Burkhard. Architecture Without Shadow is a beautiful and valuable book on one of the prominent movements in contemporary photography.
