Frances Stark: This Could Become a Gimick [sic] or An Honest Articulation of the Workings of the MindFrances Stark: This Could Become a Gimick [sic] or An Honest Articulation of the Workings of the Mind

Published by MIT List Visual Arts Center.
Edited by Joćo Ribas. Foreword by Jane Farver.

Artist and writer Frances Stark (born 1967) addresses the doubts and anxieties of creative labor, in self-portraits that she elaborates into cross-disciplinary explorations of language as both subject matter and material. The digressive style that typifies her writing is echoed in the experience of her installations, in which themes emerge across citations from pop music and literature. Her works, often hand drawn, are executed with a vulnerability and fluency of composition that affirms the volume's title. This anthology offers a selection of the artist's writings from 1997 to 2006.

Chantal Akerman: Moving Through Time and SpaceChantal Akerman: Moving Through Time and Space

Published by Blaffer Gallery, The Art Museum of the Univeristy of Houston.
Edited by Terrie Sultan. Preface and Acknowledgments by Paul Ha, Jane Farver, Rina Carvajal, Terrie Sultan. Texts by Claudia Schmuckli, William Arning, Klaus Ottmann, Rina Carvajal, Terrie Sultan.

Since 1968, Brussels-born, Paris-based Chantal Akerman has produced over 50 film and video works, in the genres of documentary and French New Wave-inspired fictional narrative. She is one of the foremost auteur-directors working today, yet she has never had a solo museum exhibition in the United States, nor has there been significant scholarly inquiry into her body of work. Her early experiments with Structuralist, Marxist and Feminist filmmaking have expanded what is possible in film today. Asserting Akerman's contribution to the genre, this volume introduces her work to those who have not had a chance to see it firsthand. With interpretive and anecdotal commentary on Akerman's oeuvre, the documentary films covered here have not been explored elsewhere.

9 Evenings Reconsidered9 Evenings Reconsidered

Art, Theater, and Engineering, 1966

Published by MIT List Visual Arts Center.
Edited by Catherine Morris. Essays by Clarisse Bardiot and Michelle Kuo. Texts by Lucy Lippard and Brian O'Doherty. Introduction by Jane Farver.

In 1966, a Bell Laboratories physicist brought a group of avant-garde artists together with 10 open-minded members of the science and technology fields for 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering, a series of investigatory Happenings which took place at the 69th Regiment Armory and were duly noted by critics Lucy Lippard and Brian O'Doherty. The resulting seminal performances included John Cage's Variations VII, in which 30 photocells were mounted around the performance space, activating a variety of sound sources--including a blender, 20 radio channels and two Geiger counters--as the performers moved around. Other contributors included Lucinda Childs, Alex Hay, Deborah Hay, Oyvind Fahlstrom, Steve Paxton, Yvonne Rainer, Robert Rauschenberg, David Tudor and Robert Whitman. The events were photographed by Peter Moore, whose pictures, many never before been published, are featured here. Also included are Lippard and O'Doherty's original reviews; new scholarship by Clarisse Bardiot, Michelle Kuo and Catherine Morris; and an interview with one of the engineers.

Michael JooMichael Joo

Published by MIT List Visual Arts Center.
Essay by Daniel Birnbaum. Introduction by Jane Farver.

Exploring how science, religion and the media shape consciousness, Michael Joo's artworks knit together the physical and the metaphysical. Matter and subject matter, energy and waste, the visible and that which cannot be seen--this is the stuff of Joo's sculptures. His densely layered works are accretions of meaning brought about by succinctly-handled conjunctions and disjunctions in a space. This publication is the first monograph on the artist and will feature the first compilation of his own writings.

Fred Wilson: Speak Of Me As I AmFred Wilson: Speak Of Me As I Am

50th Venice Biennale

Published by MIT List Visual Arts Center.
Essays by Salah Hassan and Paul Kaplan. Introduction by Jane Farver.

The United States will be represented at the 50th Venice Biennale by an artist known for questioning accepted notions of “truth” via combinations of historical artifacts, art objects, film, video, audio and altered museum labels. Fred Wilson's U.S pavilion will deal with Renaissance Venice and the role black Africans played in what was then the most cosmopolitan and ethnically diverse city in the world. Part of Wilson's exhibition will focus on the more personal themes of sadness and regret and will include new individual works and an installation about the legend of Othello, the Moor of Venice.

Paul PfeifferPaul Pfeiffer

Published by Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.
Artwork by Paul Pfeiffer. Contributions by Jane Farver and John Baldessari. Text by Dominic Molon, Robert Fitzpatrick.

The basketball player dunks, and dunks, and dunks again. The boxer punches, and punches, and punches again. Using advanced technology to transform and isolate moments from movies and televised sporting events, Paul Pfeiffer's work examines contemporary notions of racial and sexual identity and how we respond to the human body when it is placed in extreme situations such as ecstasy and pain. Pfeiffer's work also explores issues of time and the increasingly blurry distinction between reality and representation in everyday life. Recent installation pieces transfer mediated, image-based knowledge into physical spaces, with references to movies like The Amityville Horror. This catalog, the first significant publication devoted to Pfeiffer's work, includes full-color reproductions, biographical and bibliographic information, scholarly essays by MCA associate curator Dominic Molon and MIT List director Jane Farver, a discussion between Pfeiffer and renowned conceptual artist John Baldessari, and a text by Pfeiffer himself.
