Lari Pittman: A Decorated ChronologyLari Pittman: A Decorated Chronology

Published by Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis.
Edited and with text by Kelly Shindler. Interview by Helen Molesworth. Foreword by Lisa Melandri.

A Decorated Chronology accompanies the first American museum exhibition of Los Angeles–based artist Lari Pittman in more than 15 years. It comprises a range of recent work and a selection of earlier paintings. Over the past three decades, Pittman has developed a body of work that is internationally celebrated for its exuberant use of color and painstakingly rendered detail to address such contentious subjects as sexuality, desire and violence. His multilayered depictions of images and signs--ranging from human figures and body parts to animals, plants, furniture, text and even credit cards--meditate on the overwhelming richness and sadness of everyday life. Embracing the critical potential of figurative painting, Pittman provides incisive commentary on the medium’s ability to intertwine the personal with the political.

Jim Hodges: Give More Than You TakeJim Hodges: Give More Than You Take

Published by Dallas Museum of Art/Walker Art Center.
Text by Jeffrey Grove, Olga Viso, Bill Arning, Susan Griffin, Helen Molesworth.

Since the late 1980s, Jim Hodges’ poetic reconsiderations of the material world have inspired a body of multimedia work in which the manmade and artificial are invested with emotion and authenticity. Co-published by the Dallas Museum of Art and the Walker Art Center, this volume accompanies the first comprehensive, scholarly exhibition to be organized in the United States of this critically acclaimed American artist. Examining over 25 years of his artistic career, this uniquely designed catalogue weaves together the voices of many to situate the artist’s work within issues of identity, social activism, illness, beauty, generosity and death. Contributions include an in-depth overview of Hodges’ career by Jeffrey Grove, Hoffman Family Senior Curator of Contemporary Art at the Dallas Museum of Art; an essay and interview with the artist by Olga Viso, Executive Director of the Walker Art Center; a reflection on Hodges’ early artistic development by Bill Arning, Director of the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston; an essay on sentimentality and the artist’s recent video work by Helen Molesworth, Barbara Lee Chief Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; as well as ruminations on recurring motifs in the artist’s work by author Susan Griffin.
Born in 1957 in Spokane, Washington, New York-based artist Jim Hodges has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions in the U.S. and in Europe, including the 2004 Whitney Biennial and a solo exhibition at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. Hodges’ work is included in the collections of notable institutions, among them the Dallas Museum of Art; the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN; The Art Institute of Chicago; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C.; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

Luc Tuymans: Exhibitions at David ZwirnerLuc Tuymans: Exhibitions at David Zwirner

Published by Ludion/David Zwirner.
Edited by Donna Wingate, Tommy Simoens. Interviews with Brice Marden, Peter Schjeldahl, Robert Storr, Madeleine Grynsztejn and Helen Molesworth by Lynne Tillman.

The famous David Zwirner Gallery in New York has been a base of operations for the Belgian painter Luc Tuymans since 1994. At the start of his career, Tuymans committed himself to showing a new series of works there once every two years--a promise that he kept, and continues to keep, 18 years on, as his tempered style and political content have steadily garnered him worldwide acclaim. Tuymans’ thematic exhibitions at the Zwirner Gallery have tackled controversial topics, ranging from the Holocaust to Belgium’s colonial past and the hypocrisy of the Disney empire. Luc Tuymans: Exhibitions at David Zwirner 1994–2012 presents the artist’s major works, together with brief commentary, photographs and archival documentation. Interviews with four leading U.S. critics--Ann Temkin, Brice Marden, Peter Schjeldahl and Robert Storr--that were conducted specially for this publication by Kristine McKenna discuss Tuymans’ presence in the U.S.

Published by San Francisco Museum of Modern Art/Wexner Center for the Arts.
Edited by Madeleine Grynsztejn, Helen Molesworth. Text by Helen Molesworth, Joseph L. Koerner, Ralph Rugoff, Bill Horrigan.

Luc Tuymans (born 1958) is one of today’s most widely admired painters, a continuation of the great tradition of Northern European painting and an enduring influence on younger and emerging artists. First published in hardback for the artist’s first full-scale American survey in 2009, and now available in paperback, this is without question the authoritative publication on Tuymans. It features approximately 75 key works from 1978 to the present, and is accompanied by essays analyzing the painter’s main concerns, with particular attention paid to his working process and his adaptation of source materials. Helen Molesworth examines themes of sinister banality, Joseph Leo Koerner writes on iconophobia and iconophilia, Ralph Rugoff considers Tuymans’ recent work and Bill Horrigan examines the artist’s cinematic sources. This book remains not only the most comprehensive survey of Tuymans’ career to date, but also the most thorough chronology of his development.

Skin Set Drawings 1997–2011

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Clément Dirié. Text by Iain Kerr, Helen Molesworth, William Pope.L.

“When Pope.L shakes his head he makes drawings that keep him from laugh-crying to death,” writes Helen Molesworth of Skin Set Drawings, an ongoing series by multi-disciplinary artist William Pope.L (born 1955). Made with very humble materials, this extended corpus deals with the absurdities and perversities of intentional language, especially racist language and language associated with categorizing and naming color. “Black People Are Taut,” “Brown People Are the Green Ray,” “Blue People Are What We Do to Homosexuals,” “Red People Are From Mars Green People Are From New Jersey,” “Purple People Are Reason Bicarbonate,” “Red People Are the Niggers of the Canyon” are some examples of this highly-charged series by the self-proclaimed “friendliest black artist in America.” Black People Are Cropped offers a selection of drawings from 1997–2011, sketches, critical texts and the artist’s own writing.

Josiah McElheny: Some Pictures of the InfiniteJosiah McElheny: Some Pictures of the Infinite

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Foreword by Helen Molesworth. Text by Maria Gough, Gregg Bordowitz, Moyra Davey, Andrea Geyer, Zoe Leonard, R. H. Quaytman, Amy Sillman, Taylor Walsh. Interview with Doug Ashford, Bill Horrigan, Helen Molesworth.

Josiah McElheny (born 1966) explores representations of time and space through the medium of glass. Some Pictures of the Infinite looks at 15 years of his work and his ongoing investigation of twentieth-century conceptions of infinity and utopia. McElheny combines the methodologies and mathematics of science with the craftsmanship of artisan glassmaking, and translates the imaginings of Jorge Luis Borges, the utopian endeavors of Bruno Taut and Paul Scheerbart, the futuristic thinking of R. Buckminster Fuller and the sculptural sensuality of Isamu Noguchi into a range of kaleidoscopic scale models for the infinite--most notably in his recent collaboration with a cosmologist on Island Universe, an accurate scale model of the Big Bang. This publication includes a range of essays by artists and critics, including Gregg Bordowitz, Moyra Davey, Zoe Leonard, Amy Sillman and others.

Catherine Opie: Empty and FullCatherine Opie: Empty and Full

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Helen Molesworth. Text by Jill Medvedow, Anna Stothart.

Catherine Opie (born 1961) has forged new idioms in both portrait and landscape photography, frequently combining the two genres to explore how people occupy different landscapes--from high school football players on the field to ice fishermen on frozen lakes, to surfers waiting for the next wave. In doing so she has come to stand as one of America's foremost documentarians. Recently, Opie has returned to the genre of street photography, elaborating on the relationship between people and place, particularly the energies and desires created when masses of people convene around a shared interest or value. Freedom of assembly is one of the rights Americans take for granted; Opie is interested in the way that sites, such as the National Mall in Washington, D.C., come to be defined by the groups of people who assemble there and how their gathering shapes the identity of the place. This catalogue presents Opie's photographs of recent political demonstrations and gatherings, ranging from the inauguration of President Obama to Tea Party rallies. Drawing on a long and august tradition of American landscape painting and documentary photography, Opie gives us a view of democracy in action. Her photographs offer a dynamic, complicated and loving portrait of the United States at the dawn of the twenty-first century. This fully illustrated catalogue features a discussion between the artist and ICA Boston Chief Curator Helen Molesworth.

Los Carpinteros: Handwork, Constructing the WorldLos Carpinteros: Handwork, Constructing the World

Special Edition

Published by Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary.
Edited by Gudrun Ankele, Daniela Zyman. Texts by Eugenio Valdés Figueroa, Paulo Herkenhoff, Helen Molesworth, Rochelle Steiner.

The Cuban duo Los Carpinteros renounces individual authorship to sabotage the disciplines of design and architecture from within. This limited edition of the first comprehensive Los Carpinteros monograph—itself voted one of “Austria's Most Beautiful Books” for 2010—comes with a pair of flip flops designed by the artists. These flip flops are imprinted with a street map of Old Havana and are meant for the owner to wear while soaking up the city’s atmosphere. As the artists put it: “We wanted people who read our book to have not just the intellectual experience of what we have tried to achieve in our work—i.e. communicating the unique experience of the Contemporary Cuban Artist—but also the visceral experience of ‘feeling’ the streets of our home and by doing so thinking about what it is and was to be Cuban during the years of our artistic journey.”

Dance, DrawDance, Draw

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Carrie Lambert-Beatty, Catherine Lord, Helen Molesworth. Interview with Paul Chan, Helen Molesworth.

Dance and the visual arts have had a longstanding inter-relationship, but until now there has been no authoritative portrayal of their shared characteristics. Dance/Draw assembles works by around 40 artists, in an attempt to locate a place and a language in art history for the interactions between contemporary dance and the visual arts over the past 40 years. The idea of “the line” in its broadest sense is deployed as the conceptual anchor for this history. While modern dance deviated from the strictures of ballet en pointe, adopting everyday gestures and spontaneous childlike play into its vocabulary, contemporary drawing likewise discarded the confines of technical perfection to leap beyond the (picture) frame. In both instances, the line was liberated from an aspiration towards perfected form, in order to appear in space as a mobile, open-ended, socially integrative element. Dance/Draw provides a fascinating conceptual take on this liberating paradigm shift, looking at works by William Anastasi, Janine Antoni, Ruth Asawa, Charles Atlas, Jérôme Bel, Trisha Brown, John Cage, Paul Chan, Liz Collins, Louise Fishman, William Forsythe, Gego, David Hammons, Mona Hatoum, Eva Hesse, Joan Jonas, Bruce Nauman, Senga Nengudi, Cornelia Parker, Howardena Pindell, Yvonne Rainer, Daniel Ranalli, Fred Sandback, Amy Sillman, Cecilia Vicuña, Faith Wilding and many others.

Luc TuymansLuc Tuymans

Published by San Francisco Museum of Modern Art/ Wexner Center for the Arts/D.A.P..
Edited by Madeleine Grynsztejn, Helen Molesworth. Text by Helen Molesworth, Joseph L. Koerner, Ralph Rugoff, Bill Horrigan.

Luc Tuymans is one of today's most widely admired painters, a continuation of the great tradition of Northern European painting and an enduring influence on younger and emerging artists. As a European child of the 1950s, his relationship to painting is inevitably structured by television, cinema and by the lingering effects of World War II; more recent historical preoccupations have included the dramatic turn of world events post-9/11. Tuymans combines a muted palette with deteriorated surface effect and a singular use of cropping, close-up and sequencing--perfect devices with which to undertake his investigation of the pathological, the banal and the conspiratorial. Published in conjunction with the artist's first full-scale American survey, this is without question the authoritative publication on Tuymans. It features approximately 75 key works from 1978 to the present, and is accompanied by essays analyzing the painter's main concerns, with particular attention paid to his working process and his adaptation of source materials. Helen Molesworth examines themes of sinister banality, Joseph Leo Koerner writes on iconophobia and iconophilia, Ralph Rugoff considers the nature of visual experience in light of Tuymans' recent work, and Bill Horrigan examines cinematic sources. This book is not only the most comprehensive survey of Tuymans' career to date, but also the most thorough chronology of his artistic development.
Born in Mortsel, Belgium, in 1958, Luc Tuymans first exhibited his paintings in 1985, at Palais des Thermes in Ostend. His first U.S. exhibition came ten years later, at The Renaissance Society in Chicago. He has also worked in film and printmaking.

Ree Morton: Works 1971-1977Ree Morton: Works 1971-1977

Published by Verlag Für moderne Kunst Nürnberg.
Edited by Sabine Folie. Text by Sabine Folie, Diana Baldon, Helen Molesworth, Susanne Neubauer.

Casting aside the orthodoxies of 1970s Minimalism in favor of a wittier, decorative, more "impure" art, Ree Morton (1936-1977) synthesized a vast repertoire of materials and erudition to produce sculptures, drawings and installations that have delighted an ever-swelling army of fans. Between 1971 and 1977, Morton made signature use of celastic, a material that resembles fabric when sculpted, and which enabled her to devise bizarre takes on domestic crafts of the "bless this house" variety. Yet none of her work is kitsch or folksy, and an Eva Hesse-style biomorphism and relish of surface and mass always prevails (Hesse was a crucial touchstone for Morton). Works 1971-1977, which accompanies a survey at the Generali Foundation, Vienna (the first since the New Museum's 1980 exhibit) is the first thorough monograph on Morton. Alongside the work itself, it reproduces the artist's numerous notebooks and sketchbooks, and an immense number of her own documentary photographs, which reconstruct the genesis of both existing works and works that have either been destroyed or can no longer be located. Essays by Diana Baldon, Sabine Folie, Susanne Neubauer and Helen Molesworth address Morton in context, against the backdrop of 1970s installation art, and Ilse Lafer provides an extensive chronological biographical and bibliographical survey.

Alexis Rockman: The Weight of AirAlexis Rockman: The Weight of Air

Published by The Rose Art Museum.
Edited by Michael Rush. Text by Helen Molesworth, Brett Litman.

Disturbingly majestic hurricanes, wind-energy fields, tornadoes, landslides, waterspouts, melting glaciers, forest fires and newly mutant species are some of the subjects of Alexis Rockman's deeply hued and intricately crafted works on paper. Surreal and deeply critical of man's destructive relationship to the environment, the primary works collected in this volume, published to accompany Rockman's first major large-scale museum exhibition in the United States, were all made since 2005. With echoes of J.M.W. Turner, Winslow Homer, Charles Burchfield and Rockman's own inimitable realism, the works surge with a power and flow of color that announces a new direction for this remarkable artist, who has been praised as much for his figurative exactitude as for his wildly imaginative take on what is considered the real. Essays are by the Rose Art Museum's Michael Rush and the Harvard University Art Museums' Helen Molesworth; the artist interview is by Brett Littman of The Drawing Center in New York.

Sadie Benning: Suspended AnimationSadie Benning: Suspended Animation

Published by Wexner Center for the Arts.
Foreword by Sherri Geldin. Introduction by Jennifer Lange. Text by Eileen Myles, Helen Molesworth, Aleksandar Hemon, Amy Sillman.

Sadie Benning is not only among the country's most respected and influential video artists, she also broke cultural ground as a founding member of the multimedia feminist band Le Tigre. Suspended Animation, the first monograph on the artist and the catalogue of her first U.S. museum exhibition, introduces Benning's paintings and Play Pause, an ambitious new two-channel video installation. Benning's videos, which she began to make in the late 1980s with a Fisher-Price Pixelvision 2000 "toy camera," are known for their explorations of loneliness, alienation, gender ambiguity and her own developing lesbian identity. Benning's recent paintings--flat, illustrative, exuberant--are playful, imaginary portraits that address similar themes. Play Pause, created entirely from hundreds of Benning's drawings, offers a rhythmic and affectionate view of contemporary life in a city's streets, parks and gay bars. Includes written contributions by Eileen Myles and Aleksandar Hemon, and a conversation with the New York painter Amy Sillman.

The Dada SeminarsThe Dada Seminars

Published by D.A.P./The National Gallery of Art, Washington.
Introduction by Leah Dickerman. Essays by George Baker, Leah Dickerman, Uwe Fleckner, Hal Foster, T. J. Demos, Amelia Jones, David Joselit, Marcella Lista, Helen Molesworth, Arnauld Pierre, Jeffrey T. Schnapp and Matthew S. Witkovsky.

This volume of 12 essays fills a broad gap in Modernist art history. Taken together, these case studies on artists and concepts present Dada as a coherent movement with a set of operating principles. Among the “ tactics” elaborated are the hyperbolic mimicry of dominant social and linguistic conventions, the performance of gender and other aspects of identity, the usurpation of the modes of a new media culture and the marketplace, and the recycling of history and memory in a world traumatized by war. The Dada Seminars developed out of a series held by the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts at the National Gallery of Art, in advance of 2005's major traveling exhibition on international Dada. Contributors include George Baker, T.J. Demos, Leah Dickerman, Uwe Fleckner, Hal Foster, Amelia Jones, David Joselit, Marcella Lista, Helen Molesworth, Arnauld Pierre, Jeffrey T.

Landscape ConfectionLandscape Confection

Published by Wexner Center for the Arts.
Essay by Helen Molesworth. Foreword by Sherri Geldin.

Landscape Confection brings together a group of emerging and mid-career artists involved in expanding the historical practice of landscape painting. Long considered one of the primary categories of Western painting, landscape has traditionally been dialectically structured by the production of either realistic or idealized representations of the natural world. The artists in Landscape Confection work in the realm of imaginary landscape. Many of the paintings derive from the unconscious space of dreams, some borrow from the discipline of topography, and still others reside at the boundary between landscape and abstraction. Most of the pictures have a high degree of whimsy and call to mind the f'êtes galantes of Watteau, redolent as they are with bodily and visual pleasure. Artist included in the exhibition and catalogue are Rowena Drig, Pia Fries, Jason Gubbiotti, Jim Hodges, Katie Pratt, Michael Raedecker, Neil Rock, Lisa Sanditz, Amy Sillman and Janaina Tschape.

Image StreamImage Stream

Published by Wexner Center for the Arts.
Essays by George Baker, Gregg Bordowitz, Aruna D'Souza, Bill Horrigan, Bruce Jenkins, Helen Molesworth and Hamza Walker. Introduction by Sherri Geldin.

Image Stream brings together eight gallery-based film and video works, each of which explore the limits of this new medium, returning to narrative and changing conventional modes of viewing. Curator Helen Molesworth in this her first exhibition for the Wexner Art Center has selected works by Kutlug Ataman, Matthew Barney, Tacita Dean, Andrea Fraser, Pierre Huyghe, Neil Jordan, Donald Moffett and Lorna Simpson, each of which is accompanied by an individual short analytical essay. As Molesworth writes in her introduction, “the hygenic isolation of the white cube has slowly, but steadily, been overtaken by an increasingly promiscuous black box. As any turn-of-the-century member of the art public knows, darkened rooms and heavy black curtains signal the omnipresent film and/or video installation.” If an earlier generation of film and video artists were concerned with the formal properties of film, she argues, today's contemporary artists “willingly explore visual forms borrowed from both Hollywood and auteur film, as well as television, MTV, CNN and the theater. This profligate borrowing of mass-media forms has been accompanied by a strong impulse towards narrative.” It is what Molesworth calls this “reciprocity” between art world and mass culture that is a “defining characteristic of contemporary projected images.”

Kerry James Marshall: One True ThingKerry James Marshall: One True Thing

Meditations On Black Aesthetics

Published by Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.
Essays by Helen Molesworth, Jeff Donaldson, Nathaniel McLin and Charles Mills. Foreword by Robert Fitzpatrick. Introduction by Elizabeth A. T. Smith.

In Kerry James Marshall's Rythm Mastr comic strip, an urban superhero battles the forces of evil using a combination of futuristic and traditional African accoutrements. This graphic narrativization is a stylistic update of Marshall's best-known work, monumental paintings of African-American subjects based on the traditional genre of narrative history painting. In One True Thing, the catalogue accompaniment to Marshall's first solo show in five years, the artist presents a multi-media range of new work that demonstrates the evolution of his ideas and his ongoing commitment to issues of construction and interpretation of meaning. The body of work Marshall is developing for the book and exhibition centers on the idea of ambiguity surrounding the representation of African Americans in our culture. Stemming in part from the Rythm Mastr comic strip project first developed for the 2000 Carnegie International exhibition, the monumental paintings in this new body of work portray figures in the urban landscape of the South Side of Chicago, inspired by the tradition of old-master paintings, especially the townscapes of Canaletto. Marshall is also creating several photographic series depicting urban settings along with a group of figurative works based on African tribal sculptures.
