Experiments in Light, Color, and Space

Published by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
Edited and with text by Alma Ruiz. Foreword by Jeffrey Deitch.

Suprasensorial: Experiments in Light, Color, and Space situates the pioneering experiments of Latin American artists within the larger international canon of artists working with light and space. Expanding the dialogue beyond the California tradition of the late 1960s and 70s to include pivotal Latin American activities that had begun to be expressed more than a decade earlier, Suprasensorial focuses on the work of artists such as Carlos Cruz-Diez, Lucio Fontana, Julio Le Parc, Hélio Oiticica and Jesús Rafael Soto. With 100 images, including specially commissioned photography by Iwan Baan of the installation at MOCA, a bibliography, a selected exhibition history and a major essay by Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Senior Curator Alma Ruiz, Suprasensorial retrieves these artists’ decisive contributions to contemporary art, acknowledging their previously obscured labors as formative to the ongoing light and space tradition.

MOCA Focus

Published by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
Edited by Alma Ruiz. Text by Hélène Cixous.

Through a combination of conceptual and intuitive operations, Alexandra Grant transforms texts into patterns of color, shape and form, giving them new life. Her collaborations with Michael Joyce, the renowned hyperfiction writer, and the use of the writings of theorist, novelist and academic Hélène Cixous inspired Grant to create The Ladder Quartet, a series of four large-scale paintings that can be aptly described as "wordscapes" or "landscapes of language." These paintings, along with new work, are presented here, along with essays by LA MOCA curator Alma Ruiz and Hélène Cixous.
Alexandra Grant received a MFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts in San Francisco in 2000. She had a solo exhibition at Gallery 16:1 in Santa Monica in 2004 and has been in numerous group shows across the country. Her exhibition in L.A. MOCA's Focus series is the first major museum showing of her work.

Poetics of the HandmadePoetics of the Handmade

Published by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
Text by Alma Ruiz, Henri Focillion, Maria Hummel, Cara Baldwin, Dianna Marisol Santillano, Elena Shtromberg.

While many of their contemporaries seem to be working in the post-studio vein with collaborators producing their work, the Latin American contemporary artists in Poetics of the Handmade explore the close relationship that exists between a person and his/her craft. Making use of common objects to create a sense of familiarity for the viewer, these artists' interest in transformation and process has led them to make works that are painstakingly handcrafted from a wide range of materials. They find poetry in the depiction of ordinary objects and powerful resonance in small actions. Featured artists include Máximo González of Argentina, Darío Escobar of Guatemala, Eduardo Abaroa of Mexico, Fernando Bryce of Peru and Magdalena Atria and Mónica Bengoa of Chile.

Damián Ortega: The Beetle and Other Works

Published by California Institute of the Arts/Redcat.
Essays by Eungie Joo, Hari Kunzru and Alma Ruiz.

This first North American monograph on Mexican artist Damian Ortega documents 10 years of work focused on conceptual practice, social organization, and humor, including the installations and performances that make up his acclaimed Beetle Trilogy, several works never before exhibited and a great deal of unpublished material. Most of what's here hasn't been seen before. The first episode of the trilogy, "The Cosmic Thing," a disassembled Volkswagen suspended in the air, was featured in Gabriel Orozco's Il Quotidiano Alterato at the 2003 Venice Biennale, and was one of the most widely reproduced images of that year's exhibition. "Moby Dick," a heroic action involving the artist's Beetle, a live band, ropes and pulleys, followed, and then "Beetle '83 Escarabajo," a ritual return to the vehicle's place of birth, closed the cycle. The Beetle Trilogy and Other Works includes a new comic, 150 color images and an original essay by Hari Kunzru, author of The Impressionist and one of Granata's 20 "Best Young British Novelists" in 2003.
