The Prints of Paul KleeThe Prints of Paul Klee

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Text by Christophe Cherix, James Thrall Soby.

Paul Klee (1879-1940) was an extraordinary draftsman, printmaker, teacher and theoretician with a singular style whose work greatly impacted the development of twentieth-century art. Klee's prints demonstrate, more fully than his works in any other medium, his remarkable evolution from a traditionalist to one of the most daring innovators of modern art. This limited-edition facsimile of The Prints of Paul Klee, originally published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York in 1947, presents 40 of Klee's etchings and lithographs from MoMA's collection, ranging in date from 1903 to 1931 and each printed on a separate sheet of stiff card, eight of which are in color. Accompanied by a 40-page booklet featuring an essay by James Thrall Soby (then Chairman of the museum's Department of Painting and Sculpture), and a new text by Christophe Cherix, MoMA's Chief Curator of Prints and Illustrated Books, the prints are encased in a cloth-covered and ribbon-bound box. This unique and luxurious portfolio is being reissued for the first time since its original publication, and is available in a limited edition of 2,000 numbered copies.

Ecart 1969-1980Ecart 1969-1980

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Lionel Bovier. Text by Lionel Bovier, Christophe Cherix.

This book focuses on Swiss artist John Armleder’s (born 1948) early Fluxus-related works with Ecart, a group Armleder cofounded with Patrick Lucchini and Claude Rychner in Geneva in the late 1960s. The Ecart Group published artists’ books, presented exhibitions and performances, and opened a bookstore/gallery that is considered to be “one of the most important alternative spaces in Europe in the 1970s” (Ken Friedman). Ecart was particularly important in Europe during the 1970s and 1980s, not only as an independent publishing house, but also because it introduced in Switzerland (and sometimes in Europe) a large number of leading artists of the era, including Joseph Beuys and Andy Warhol. Ecart also worked with artists such as Dick Higgins, Lawrence Weiner, Annette Messager, Daniel Spoerri, Giuseppe Chiari, Maurizio Nannucci and Ben Vautier. This volume is co-published with the Charles H. Scott Gallery, Emily Carr Institute of Art & Design, Vancouver.

Selected Essays on Artists’ Books since 1972

Published by JRP|Ringier.
By Clive Phillpot. Edited by Lionel Bovier. Introduction by Lionel Bovier, Christophe Cherix.

Clive Phillpot has been a tireless advocate for the artist’s book for more than 40 years--both as a critic, curator and editor, and in his tenure as director at the library of The Museum of Modern Art in the late 1970s, where he built the library’s collection of artist’s books and mapped out the field with influential essays that traced its ancestry and distinguished it from seemingly similar genres such as the livre d’artiste. As he has delineated the genre: “Artists’ books are understood to be books or booklets produced by the artist using mass-production methods, and in (theoretically) unlimited numbers, in which the artist documents or realizes art ideas or artworks.” Also collaborating with Printed Matter and Franklin Furnace, among other places dedicated to the medium of the book, Phillpot helped raise awareness of artists’ books, endowing them with the critical credentials to enter the collections of museums. Booktrek gathers for the first time Phillpot’s essays on the definition and development of artists’ books from 1972 to the present--historical texts, manifestos, catalogue entries and essays on works by Ed Ruscha, Sol LeWitt, Dieter Roth and Richard Long. Booktrek will prove an invaluable reference for all those interested in the evolution of the artist’s book, and offers a crucial account of the genre’s ascent.

20 Years in Print

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Edited by Christophe Cherix. Text by Christophe Cherix, Kim Conaty, Sarah Suzuki.

Over the past two decades, the art world has broadened its geographic reach and opened itself to new continents, allowing for a significant cross-pollination of post-conceptual strategies and vernacular modes. Printed materials, in both innovative and traditional forms, have played a key role in this exchange of ideas and sources. This catalogue, published in conjunction with an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, examines the evolution of artistic practices related to printmaking, from the resurgence of traditional printing techniques--often used alongside digital technologies--to the worldwide proliferation of self-published artist’s books and ephemera. Print/Out features focused sections on ten artists and publishers--Ai Weiwei, Edition Jacob Samuel, Ellen Gallagher, Martin Kippenberger, Lucy McKenzie, Aleksandra Mir, museum in progress, Robert Rauschenberg, Superflex and Rirkrit Tiravanija--as well as rich illustrations of additional printed projects from the last 20 years by major artists such as Trisha Donnelly, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Thomas Schütte and Kelley Walker. An introductory essay by Christophe Cherix, Chief Curator of Prints and Illustrated Books at the Museum, offers an overview of this period with particular attention to new directions and strategies within an expanded field of printmaking.

Artist-Run SpacesArtist-Run Spaces

Non Profit Collective Oraganizations in the 1960s & 1970s

Published by .

In the 1960s and 70s, as the parameters of art expanded to incorporate architecture and performance and increasingly drew on urban theory and the politics of everyday life, the model of the artist-run gallery space gained enormous relevance. Developed in collaboration with the founders of the leading artist-run spaces of the 1960s and 1970s, this volume compiles the first extensive research on the history of this phenomenon. It introduces such spaces as Art Metropole in Toronto, Artpool in Budapest, Ecart in Geneva, Franklin Furnace in New York, La Mamelle in San Francisco, Printed Matter in New York, Western Front in Vancouver and Zona in Florence, along with their founders, including Carl Andre, John Armleder, AA Bronson, Sol LeWitt, Lucy Lippard, Tom Marioni and Maurizio Nannucci.

Francis Baudevin: Miscellaneous AbstractFrancis Baudevin: Miscellaneous Abstract

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Text by Bob Nickas, Christophe Cherix, Rainer M. Mason.

Francis Baudevin (born 1964) makes paintings from graphics designed for various products, primarily pharmaceuticals and album covers. He removes the type, leaving only the graphics, and enlarges the results onto canvases and walls, thereby retrieving geometric abstraction from its influence on commercial design.

In & Out of AmsterdamIn & Out of Amsterdam

Travels in Conceptual Art, 1960-1976

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Edited by Christophe Cherix. Text by Phillip van den Bossche, Cathleen Chaffee, Christophe Cherix, Rini Dippel, Paula Feldman, Christian Rattemeyer.

During the 1960s and 70s, Amsterdam was a nexus of intense art activities, drawing artists from all over the world, including Stanley Brouwn, Gilbert & George, Sol LeWitt, Charlotte Posenenske, Allen Ruppersberg and Lawrence Weiner. Reciprocally, some of the most influential Dutch artists traveled abroad extensively before establishing themselves in Amsterdam: Jan Dibbets studied in London, while Ger van Elk and Bas Jan Ader trained in Los Angeles. As a result of this new mobility, a dynamic cross-pollination of ideas and influences took place between artists of different nationalities, and many produced works directly related to the notion of travel and the city that fostered them. In & Out of Amsterdam presents more than 120 works--including works on paper, installations, photographs and films--by artists who were part of this remarkable creative culture. Essays, accompanied by lively illustrations and documentary photographs, illuminate the significance of these works as well as the unprecedented role that prints, bulletins, posters, mail art, artists' books and ephemera played in the artists' discourse. A brief essay or interview introduces each artist, and an extensive chronology, bibliography and illustrated checklist round out this unique volume.

Henri Matisse: Traits EssentielsHenri Matisse: Traits Essentiels

Monotypes 1906-1952

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Text by Christophe Cherix, Mayte Julliard.

If painting was for Matisse the expression of a "state of condensed sensations," his engravings consisted of "Traits Essentiels" or "essential lines:" they were recordings of a single sensation, and rarely passed through any series of stages or reworkings. In fact, engraving was a refuge. Marguerite Duthuit-Matisse, co-author of a catalogue raisonné of her father's prints, describes the graphic work he often executed at the end of a painting session as an "agreeable conclusion." After several experiments with drypoint, Matisse turned toward woodcut in 1906 (and gave it up almost immediately), then worked simultaneously in monotype and etching, where he achieved an astonishing tension between surface and line. Later, he turned to linocut and to sugarlift aquatint. It is on these projects that the selection in Traits Essentiels focuses: Lithography, which Matisse practiced from 1906 to 1952, and with which he was less experimental, is excluded. Text in French only.

Barry Le Va: Fictional Excerpts, Notes, Interviews, ScrapbooksBarry Le Va: Fictional Excerpts, Notes, Interviews, Scrapbooks

1969-2003

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Christophe Cherix. Essays by Saul Ostrow and Willoughby Sharp.

Barry Le Va is back. After more than ten years without a major exhibition in the United States, a mini-blockbuster of a retrospective at the University of Pennsylvania's Institute for Contemporary Art in early 2005 rescattered Le Va's felt, reimbedded his cleavers in a wall and rebroke his sheets of plate glass--to extraordinary critical acclaim. Now, to complement that exhibition and for insight into a mind that has remained consistently true to a renegade vision for some 35 years, we have a collection of writings, studies, notes, drawings, sketches and more, from a cult artist who has influenced a younger generation that includes Jason Rhoades, Cady Noland, Karen Kilimnik and Rirkrit Tiravanija. The book brings together for the first time in one place three major early interviews, and adds a new one with Christophe Cherix.
