Piero Manzoni: When Bodies Became ArtPiero Manzoni: When Bodies Became Art

Published by Kerber.
Edited by Martin Engler, Max Hollein. Text by Martin Engler, Germano Celant, Massimiliano Gioni, Francesca Pola, Dominique Laporte, Franziska Leuthäusser.

Few artists have combined conceptual ingenuity with devastating critique as deftly and wittily as Piero Manzoni (1933–1963). Fifty years after his death at the tender age of 29, Manzoni remains unsurpassed as a provocateur: his Artist's Breath and Artist's Shit editions, which now sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars, are unanswerable satirical attacks on art-world economics and values, and his designations of various persons (such as Umberto Eco and Marcel Broodthaers) as "living artworks" prefigure many strains in performance art. Manzoni thus effected some of the most decisive paradigm shifts in postwar art, something for which he is only rarely given full credit. This comprehensive survey accompanies a major retrospective at the Städel in Frankfurt (the first major Manzoni retrospective outside Italy in more than two decades), and is published on the occasion of what would have been his eightieth birthday. It reproduces more than 100 works from all phases of the artist's brief but massively influential career, from his early Klein-influenced monochromes (or "Achromes") and the Art Informel years to his role as a leading member of the Zero group (alongside Mack, Piene, Tinguely, Klein, Fontana) and beyond.

Paola PiviPaola Pivi

Published by Damiani/Perrotin.
Text by Massimilano Gioni, Jens Hoffmann.

Over the course of her two-decade career, the Italian-born, Alaska-based multimedia artist Paola Pivi (born 1971) has fashioned such unlikely objects as a mausoleum made of cookies and a rotating airplane. Many of her sculptures and photographs are comical, as in her pictures of miniaturized designer chairs attached to bare buttocks, or a leopard walking across rows of cappuccino cups. Animals are a recurrent presence throughout, whether taxidermied and rendered sculptural or alive and photographed in unlikely locales (e.g. her tender portrait of two zebras, their heads hooked around each other’s necks, against a backdrop of mountain snow). This volume is published for Pivi’s 2013 exhibition at the Galerie Perrotin in Paris, and gathers a selection of her work from the past ten years.

Show Time: The 50 Most Influential Exhibitions of Contemporary ArtShow Time: The 50 Most Influential Exhibitions of Contemporary Art

Published by D.A.P./Distributed Art Publishers, Inc..
Edited and with text by Jens Hoffmann. Conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist, Massimiliano Gioni, Maria Lind, Jessica Morgan, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Adriano Pedrosa, Mary Jane Jacob.

This monumental new book explores the recent history of exhibition-making, looking at the radical shifts that have taken place in the practice of curating contemporary art over the last 20 years. Tracing a history of curating through its most innovative shows, renowned curator Jens Hoffmann selects the 50 key exhibitions that have most significantly shaped the practice of both artists and curators. Chosen from the plethora of exhibitions, biennials and art events that have sprung up across the world since the 1990s, each exhibition reviewed here has triggered profound changes in curatorial practice, and reanimated the potential of contemporary art. The book includes an international roster of curators, and exhibition venues that span the globe, from the USA, Mexico, Brazil and South Africa to France, Germany, the Netherlands, Turkey and Spain. It is comprised of nine themed sections, including: "New Lands" (on shows such as Magiciens de la Terre, The Short Century and After the Wall); "Biennial Years" (which documents influential biennials such as the Documentas [10, 11, 13] and the Berlin and Săo Paulo Biennials); "New Forms" (including experiments in exhibition-making such as Do It and NowHere); "Others Everywhere" (on ‘identity politics’ shows such as In a Different Light, Phantom Sightings and the 1993 Whitney Biennial); "Tomorrow’s Talents Today" (on influential group exhibitions of emerging artists such as Helter Skelter and Sensation); and "History" (on historical surveys such as Inside the Visible, Global Conceptualism and WACK!). A bold proposition for the future of exhibition culture as well as a means of making the recent past accessible, Show Time is essential reading for any student of curating or museum studies, for professional curators and for all those interested in one of today’s most dynamic forms of cultural production.
Jens Hoffmann is an exhibition maker and writer based in New York. He is Deputy Director and Head of Exhibitions and Public Programs at The Jewish Museum, New York. He has curated and co-curated a number of large-scale exhibitions, including the 2nd San Juan Triennial (2009), the 12th Istanbul Biennial (2011) and the 9th Shanghai Biennial (2012).

NYC 1993NYC 1993

Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star

Published by New Museum.
Edited by Massimiliano Gioni, Gary Carrion-Murayari, Jenny Moore, Margot Norton.

NYC 1993 looks at art made and exhibited in New York over the course of one year, providing a synchronic panorama in which established artists and emerging figures of the time are presented alongside the work of authors whose influence has since faded from the discussion. Centering on the year 1993, NYC 1993 is conceived as an experiment in collective memory that captures a specific moment at the intersection of art, pop culture and politics. The book draws its subtitle from the eponymous album that Sonic Youth recorded in 1993 and exemplifies exchange between mainstream and underground culture across disciplines, which came to define the art of the era. The exhibition included historical reconstructions of important installations and exhibitions from 1993, while other works were revisited and reinterpreted from the vantage point of today--highlighting the ways in which certain actions, events, attitudes and emotions reverberate toward the present.

Gustav Metzger: Historic PhotographsGustav Metzger: Historic Photographs

Published by New Museum.
Edited by Gary Carrion-Murayari, Massimiliano Gioni. Foreword by Lisa Phillips. Text by Mathieu Copeland, Paul McCarthy. Interview by Gary Carrion-Murayari.

Gustav Metzger: Historic Photographs was published for the first US solo exhibition of the influential artist and activist Gustav Metzger (born 1926). As a survivor of the Holocaust, Metzger has first-hand experience of displacement and destruction. The exhibition at the New Museum featured the most complete installation to date of Metzger’s series of sculptural installations titled Historic Photographs. This series confronts the viewer with some of the most powerful and tragic images of twentieth-century history, which Metzger has enlarged, obscured or hidden in a variety of ways. Historic Photographs spans a range of historical events including the destruction of the Warsaw ghetto in 1943, the Oklahoma City bombing and environmental destruction in contemporary England.

Apichatpong Weerasethakul: PrimitiveApichatpong Weerasethakul: Primitive

Published by New Museum.
Edited by Gary Carrion-Murayari, Massimiliano Gioni. Foreword by Lisa Phillips. Text by Ryan Inouye, Rirkrit Tiravanija. Interview by Gary Carrion-Murayari.

Primitive is the publication accompanying Apichatpong Weerasethakul first New York exhibition, devoted to the work of the Thai filmmaker (born 1970). The complex spatial and temporal relationships that his narrative films suggest are explored most boldly in the Primitive project (2009), which received its American debut at the New Museum. Primitive is Weerasethakul’s most ambitious project to date: a multi-platform work consisting of an installation of seven videos and one related short film that capture the social and historical reality of the rural village of Nabua, which was devastated by decades of violence between the Thai military and Communist-sympathizing farmers. This catalogue reproduces stills from the Primitive project alongside an interview with Weerasethakul and critical essays.

OstalgiaOstalgia

Published by New Museum.
Edited by Jarrett Gregory, Sarah Valdez. Forward by Lisa Philips. Text by Massimiliano Gioni, Ekaterina Degot, Victor Misiano, Joanna Mytkowska, Bojana Pejic, Boris Groys. Interview by Judy Ditner.

The word “ostalgie” emerged in Germany in the 1990s to describe a then-burgeoning nostalgia for the era prior to the collapse of the Communist Bloc and the breaking up of countries formerly united under Communist government. Ostalgia looks at the art produced in these countries--some of which did not even formally exist two decades ago--bringing together the work of more than 50 artists from 20 countries across Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Republics. Many of these works, by seminal figures and younger artists alike, offer a series of reportages on life and art under Communism and in the new post-Soviet countries. Eschewing a chronological perspective, Ostalgia instead establishes a series of dialogues between different generations and geographies, revealing local avant-garde practices and highlighting their international affinities. Among the artists included are Victor Alimpiev, Said Atabekov, Miroslav Balka, Irina Botea, Erik Bulatov, André Cadere, Stanislav Filko, Sanja Ivekovic, Jiri Kovanda, Edward Krasinski, Jonas Mekas, Boris Mikhailov, Paulina Olowska, Roman Ondák, Helga Paris, Dmitri Prigov, Anri Sala, Andro Wekua and Anna Zemánková.

Urs Fischer: Shovel in a HoleUrs Fischer: Shovel in a Hole

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Massimiliano Gioni. Text by Jessica Morgan, Bice Curiger, Massimiliano Gioni.

In a move that now seems prescient, Swiss artist Urs Fischer--who was born in 1973--literally pulled the floor out from under viewers for a 2007 exhibition at Gavin Brown's Enterprise, New York, by digging through the gallery foundations and exposing the dirt and rubble beneath. Best known for this kind of dramatic transfiguration of the exhibition space, as well as for his unexpected transformations of quotidian objects and his lack of allegiance to any one style, Fischer consistently projects a sense of transience and existential uncertainty. This volume--which includes newly commissioned essays by Massimiliano Gioni and Jessica Morgan, as well as over 200 images of Fischer's work, including installation views and studio shots--functions like a search engine, cross-referencing Fischer's thought processes. Published concurrently with his solo exhibition at New York's New Museum, it was conceived by designer Scipio Schneider in close collaboration with the artist.

After NatureAfter Nature

Published by New Musuem.
Text by Massimiliano Gioni.

Published to accompany the acclaimed summer 2008 After Nature exhibition at New York's New Museum, this unique catalogue pays tribute to the work of W.G. Sebald by repurposing existing copies of his 1988 three-part prose poem, from which the show borrowed its title. Called "an arresting gesture" by The New Yorker's Peter Schjeldahl, the catalogue consists of the original book, enriched with images that have been hand-placed between the pages, and a new fold-out dust jacket. The result is a singular hybrid that is part appropriation, part recycled material--informed by the artistic tradition of the found object. Conceived as an homage, the catalogue features an essay by the New Museum's Massimiliano Gioni, a complete checklist and 25 color images by each of the featured artists, who include Pawel Althamer, Huma Bhabha, Maurizio Cattelan, William Christenberry, Nathalie Djurberg, Werner Herzog, Zoe Leonard, Klara Liden, Dana Schutz and Tino Sehgal, among others.

TheanyspacewhateverTheanyspacewhatever

Published by Guggenheim Museum.
Essays by Michael Archer, Jan Avgikos, Daniel Birnbaum, Ina Blom, Stefano Boeri, Francesco Bonami, Nicolas Bourriaud, Xavier Douroux, Patricia Falguieres, Heike Föll, Hal Foster, Massimiliano Gioni, Michael Govan, Dorothea von Hantelmann, Jens Hoffman, Chrissie Iles, Branden Joseph, Emily King, Christy Lange, Maria Lind, Tom Morton, Molly Nesbit, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Beatrix Ruf, Stephan Schmidt-Wulffen, Barbara Steiner, Rachael Thomas, Eric Troncy, Giorgio Verzotti, Thomas Wulffen, Olivier Zahm

During the 1990s a number of artists claimed the exhibition as their medium. Working independently or in various collaborative constellations, they eschewed the individual object in favor of the exhibition environment as a dynamic arena, ever expanding its physical and temporal parameters. For these artists an exhibition can comprise a film, a novel, a shared meal, a social space, a performance or a journey. Their work engages directly with the vicissitudes of everyday life, offering subtle moments of transformation. This catalogue, which accompanies a major exhibition at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, is the first in the U.S. to examine the dynamic interchange among a core group of these artists--Angela Bulloch, Maurizio Cattelan, Liam Gillick, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Douglas Gordon, Carsten Höller, Pierre Huyghe, Jorge Pardo, Philippe Parreno and Rirkrit Tiravanija--a many-sided conversation that helped shape the cultural landscape of the 1990s and beyond.

Michaël Borremans: WeightMichaël Borremans: Weight

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Ann Demeester, Massimiliano Gioni, Philippe-Alain Michaud, Delfim Sardo.

Belgium-based Michael Borremans creates absurd and sometimes ominous paintings. “Horse Hunting” (2005), for example, depicts, in a muddy palette, a pale and moody-looking man in a suit jacket and crisp white shirt shoving two twigs up his nose. He stares straight at us, and the wall behind him is filled with his shadow. Borremans has said of his paintings, “I use clichés and other elements that are part of a collective consciousness… my work would be perfect on biscuit tins.” At the 2006 Berlin Biennale, Borremans showed a film on a small LCD screen, which he had framed like a painting. The piece was based on a 2002 drawing of a girl, which he reproduced in three dimensions, so that the girl slowly spins around. Whatever the medium, Borremans’ work bears this trademark sense of absurdity verging on menace. Weight is published concurrently with an exhibition at De Appel in Amsterdam.

Paul Chan: 7 LightsPaul Chan: 7 Lights

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Text by Massimiliano Gioni, Kitty Scott.

The American artist Paul Chan has gained international acclaim for his video work, drawings and installations that blend a novel drafting aesthetic with philosophical reflections on politics, religion, sex and life. This beautifully produced monograph, published on the occasion of Chan’s highly anticipated one-person exhibition at New York’s recently unveiled New Museum of Contemporary Art, presents the first significant overview of his work. Spanning from the late 1990s through today, it is named for Chan’s most recent project, The 7 Lights (2005-07), a series of large-scale digital projections and drawings that “hallucinate” the Seven Days of Creation.
Paul Chan was born in Hong Kong in 1973 and raised in Nebraska. Currently based in New York, he is represented by Greene Naftali Gallery and has had solo museum exhibitions at The Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia; the Blanton Museum of Art, Austin; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; and the UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles.

John Bock: FilmsJohn Bock: Films

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Foreword by Max Hollein. Text by Joachim Jäger, Robin Curtis, Massimiliano Gioni.

John Bock, the German sculptor and performance artist, born in 1965, is known for his spectacular, comically grotesque action art, which comments energetically on everything from aesthetics and politics to society and pseudo-science. His work has been compared to the post-war, post-Dada Theater of the Absurd of the 1940s, 50s and 60s--an avant garde movement that attempted to shock its audiences into facing life’s ultimate, bleak reality by creating independent meaning in the face of the apparent, inherent lack thereof. It only makes sense that Bock has increasingly turned towards film in recent years. This special edition artist’s book, with its exposed, sewn binding and enigmatic white cover, provides an overview of Bock’s first short videos alongside his longer narrative films, featuring real actors and sets. Collectively, the film work is considered both technically and aesthetically, from art historical and cinematographic perspectives. Film stills, set photography and texts illustrate the individual works.

Elmgreen & DragsetElmgreen & Dragset

This Is the First Day of My Life

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Tony Benn, Massimiliano Gioni, Amelia Saul.

“Some people find a certain cruelty in parts of our work,” say the rising conceptualist-collaborators Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset, “but they are definitely not more vicious than any real life experiences.” Since 1995, Elmgreen and Dragset have tackled issues of privatization, gentrification, social alienation and the dismantling of social welfare. For their first show at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery in 2001 they papered over the windows with the announcement “Opening Soon Prada.” Pursuing and inverting this theme, in 2005 they installed a mocked-up Prada store on a deserted road near Marfa, Texas. They have recreated hospitals and prison cells, and have reconfigured gallery spaces to spatially deter their would-be audience. “Our aim is to investigate some of the power structures that these spaces derive from, and by exchanging and replacing some of these structures, show how fragile they actually are.” This monograph is the first extensive survey of their work to date.

Charley 05Charley 05

Published by Deste Foundation for Contemporary Art.
Edited by Maurizio Cattelan, Massimiliano Gioni, Ali Subotnick.

Charley is an approximately annual publication edited by Maurizio Cattelan, Massimiliano Gioni and Ali Subotnick, and designed by The Purtill Family Business. It is as visual as a magazine and as substantial as a book, but refuses to abide by either genre's rules. Following earlier editions on the 2001-2002 New York art season, on neglected artists from the 80s and early 90s, and on museum acquisitions, this new volume rounds up the stray dogs of contemporary art--Charley 5 features artists who have remained forgotten, proudly secluded or just unnoticed, in spite of their visionary work. Its galleries of obsessions mix professionals and amateurs, cult figures and unknowns, unheard prophets, voluntary outcasts and great solitary masters and freaks, celebrating the extreme subjectivity of more than 50 voices and implicitly questioning accepted hierarchies in the process. The editors have said of their recent work, "it's a way to say, look around…The latest issues of Charley are a lot about 'What ifs': what if there were many more artists than we actually speak about? What if our artist list was just partial and irrelevant?"
Charley is sponsored by the Deste Foundation, Athens, Greece, which supports artist's projects, exhibitions, and symposia that explore the relationship between contemporary art and culture.

Marcel van Eeden: K.M. WiegandMarcel van Eeden: K.M. Wiegand

Life and Work

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Essay by Massimiliano Gioni.

The Dutch artist Marcel van Eeden has done a drawing a day for more than a decade, since 1993. Each one interprets photographs or text from before he was born in 1965, source material he gathers through a network of vintage book dealers, archives and libraries. His thousands of small-format works show people and places at once anachronistic and ready to spring to life at any moment; they make the time before his birth seem present in front of the viewer's eyes, as though through the looking glass into a period film. Van Eeden calls his life's work an "encyclopedia" of his death--he imagines a time before he existed in order to imagine a time after he is gone. This collection of approximately 140 of his virtuosic drawings describes a fictitious biography for K. M. Wiegand, who, history verifies, was actually a botanist.

Of Mice and MenOf Mice and Men

4th Berlin Biennial for Contemporary Art

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Edited by Maurizio Cattelan, Massimiliano Gioni and Ali Subotnick.

This coy, enigmatic object, which falls somewhere between an illustrated anthology of short stories and a scrapbook of a visit to the 2006 Berlin Biennial, presents the works of more than 60 artists in a montage of historical photos, newspaper clippings and reference materials, mixed in with photos of the art itself, including both studio and installation views. The Book, despite its classical design and hardcover binding, is not just a textual complement to the exhibition, not so much a documentation, but an exhibition in book form, an artists' book that makes truly unusual use of texts and images. The 4th Berlin Biennial for Contemporary Art is curated by Maurizio Cattelan, Massimiliano Gioni and Ali Subotnick.

Charley 04

Published by Deste Foundation for Contemporary Art.
Edited by Maurizio Cattelan, Massimiliano Gioni and Ali Subotnick.

Charley is a series of publications edited by Maurizio Cattelan, Massimiliano Gioni and Ali Subotnick. A voracious creature fixated on the assimilation and consumption of visual art, the fourth issue, Checkpoint Charley, brings together images of works produced by more than 700 artists encountered by the curators of the 4th Berlin Biennial for Contemporary Art during their research. A multiform creature, Charley takes on a new theme and shape with every issue: the first featured 400 emerging artists, the second documented the 2001-2002 New York art season, and Charley 03 presented forgotten artists from the 80s and early 90s. The 4th Berlin Biennial for Contemporary Art is funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation. Checkpoint Charley is realized with the support of the Culture 2000 program of the European Union.

Latin American & Caribbean Art: Moma At El MuseoLatin American & Caribbean Art: Moma At El Museo

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York/El Museo del Barrio.
Edited by Miriam Basilio, Fatima Bercht, Deborah Cullen, Gary Garrels and Luis Enrique Pérez-Oramas. Essays by RocĚo Aranda-Alvarado, Miriam Basilio, Fatima Bercht, Deborah Cullen, Gary Garrels, Harper Montgomery, Luis Enrique Pérez-Oramas, et al.

MoMA at El Museo: Latin American and Caribbean Art from the Collection of The Museum of Modern Art is, as the title suggests, an exhibition highlighting artworks selected from this major collection. But it is so much more: A collaborative effort between the two New York museums, this exhibition and accompanying catalogue present over 100 paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints, and illustrated books produced by artists from Latin America and the Caribbean, selected from MoMA. Notably, it is this very collection that has created the paradigm of "Latin American Art" and has helped shape the ever-burgeoning art historical and cultural studies in this area, both in the United States and abroad. The curators' introductory texts provide analyses of the collection within the broader context of modern art in Latin America; a history of the development of the collection focusing on major acquisitions, groundbreaking exhibitions, and influential curators and staff involved in the formation and study of the collection; and discuss the curatorial premises for MoMA at El Museo. Short essays follow on key works added in each phase of the collection's growth, examples of which include work by Diego Rivera, Jos» Clemente Orozco, Antonio Berni, and David Alfaro Siqueiros in the 1930s; Joaquin Torres-Garcia, Matta, Roberto Berdecio, and Wifredo Lam in the 1940s; Rafael Montanez Ortiz, Jesus Raphael Soto, Marisol, and Fernando Botero in the 1960s; and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Los Carpinteros, and Vik Muniz today.

Monument To NowMonument To Now

The Dakis Joannou Collection

Published by Deste Foundation for Contemporary Art.
Edited by Jeffrey Deitch. Essays by Dan Cameron, Alison Gingeras, Massimiliano Gioni and Nancy Spector. Introduction by Dakis Joannou.

Greek collector Dakis Joannou is one of the preeminent collectors of contemporary art in the world, with a collection that stands as a virtual who's who of artists from the 1980s through today. 85 of those artists are represented in Monument to Now--the most utterly relevant to today, of course. Leading curators from New York, Milan and Paris have contributed essays and selected the included artists. Designed by acclaimed graphic artist Stefan Sagmeister, the hardcover edition features a three-dimensional monument affixed to the front cover; the paperback retains some trace of the monument, perhaps a footprint of the monument on the front cover, a pop-up monument inside, or some other invention. The follow-up to Everything That's Interesting Is New, an earlier book on the Joannou collection, Monument to Now strictly includes work dating from 1985 and later, with a focus on the artists who are most relevant now. Among many new acquisitions featured are works by Vanessa Beecroft, Maurizio Cattelan, Gregory Crewdson, Anna Gaskell, Mariko Mori, Chris Ofili, Tom Sachs, Fred Tomaselli and Kara Walker. Other included artists are Janine Antoni, Matthew Barney, Ashley Bickerton, Rineke Dijkstra, Olafur Eliasson, Robert Gober, Andreas Gursky, Peter Halley, Mike Kelley, Toba Khedoori, Jeff Koons, Paul McCarthy, Takashi Murakami, Shirin Neshat, Tim Noble & Sue Webster, Cady Noland, Gabriel Orozco, Charles Ray, Cindy Sherman, Kiki Smith, Wolfgang Tillmans, Gillian Wearing, Christopher Wool and Chen Zhen.

Charley 03Charley 03

Published by Deste Foundation for Contemporary Art.
Edited by Maurizio Cattelan, Massimiliano Gioni and Ali Subotnick.

Charley 03 is a time machine, bringing out the past and casting it into a new light. Charley 03 presents one hundred artists from the 80s and 90s. Playing with memory and amnesia, Charley 03 presents--in a new frame--the works that have shaped two decades of contemporary art. Suspended between nostalgia and archeology, Charley 03 writes a small history of what-ifs: a scenario that speaks about the instability of taste as it undermines the hierarchies of art history. Yesterday begins tomorrow. A multiform creature, Charley is bound to transform at each new appearance. The first issue featured 400 emerging artists from around the world, selected by a pool of international artists, curators, critics and art professionals. Charley 02 provided a snapshot of the New York City art season in 2001-2002. Charley is sponsored by the Deste Foundation, Athens, Greece, which supports artist's projects, exhibitions, and symposia that explore the relationship between contemporary art and culture.

Charley 02Charley 02

Published by Deste Foundation for Contemporary Art.
Edited by Maurizio Cattelan, Massimiliano Gioni, Ali Subotnick. Contributions by Jenelle Porter, Conny Purtill.

The second issue of Charley is a snapshot of the New York City art season from fall 2001 through summer 2002. A predigested combine, it is a memory update that serves both as a playlist and a Who's Who of contemporary art. Charley 02 treats the city as a giant open-air festival of contemporary art; it's a catalog of an imaginary show that unravels in the streets of New York, stretching from Harlem to Chelsea, through SoHo, Queens and Brooklyn. Charley 02 is open to endless transformations: constructed as a collection of 142 color postcards featuring images from the season's most memorable shows and events along with texts, comments, and reviews, it can be shuffled around and rearranged. The postcards can be sent out, pasted on the wall, or glued to the fridge; hierarchies can be shifted, new connections created. Charley 02 is a machine for distribution, a mechanism for spreading and exploiting information, rumors and communication. It is a multiform creature, bound to transform at each new appearance and new issue.
Charley 02 is sponsored by the Deste Foundation, Athens, Greece, which supports artist's projects, exhibitions, and symposia that explore the relationship between contemporary art and culture.
