Published by JRP|Ringier. Edited by Walead Beshty. Text by Nicolas Bourriaud, Suzanne Hudson, Bob Nickas.
This new expanded edition gives a ten-year overview of Los Angeles–based artist Walead Beshty (born 1976), and elucidates his approach to photographic and sculptural representation. Most recently, Beshty’s work has concentrated on themes of production, making use of mundane procedures like air travel or mailing a package.

Alongside Philippe Parreno, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster and Bernard Joisten, French artist Pierre Joseph was a crucial protagonist in the 1990s turn towards collaborative artmaking, exhibitions as social encounters and digital manipulation of reality. This selective overview includes a long conversation with British artist Liam Gillick, and a focus on Joseph’s Characters to Be Reactivated series by the art critic and theoretician Nicolas Bourriaud.

Philippe Parreno rose to prominence in the 1990s among a group of artists later gathered under the rubric of Relational Aesthetics. Parreno has sought to redefine the exhibition experience as a coherent object rather than a collection of individual works. In this spirit, his recent exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery constitutes an environment through which the visitor is guided by an orchestration of sound and image. This catalogue for the exhibition examines Parreno’s films, including Invisibleboy (2010), the tale of a Chinese immigrant boy who sees imaginary monsters that are scratched onto the film stock; June 8, 1968 (2009) which revisits the train voyage that transported the corpse of Robert Kennedy from New York to Washington D.C.; and The Boy from Mars (2003), which partly focuses on the generator that supplies the power required to make the film.

Moments spent in elevators, check-ins at airports, subway rides—these are all examples of the kind of “in-between” time that fascinates Walead Beshty and supplies so much of the material for his photographs. “In-between time” applies to civic space, too—depopulated modernist housing developments that sit precariously between evacuation and demolition (explored by Beshty in his Excursionist Views), plants, weeds and vegetation on isolated highway medians (Island Flora), or abandoned shopping malls (American Passages). More recently, Beshty’s adventures in “the in-between” have become a means of production, as he makes creative use of such mundane procedures as air travel or sending a package. This monograph presents a ten-year overview of Walead Beshty’s approach to photographic and sculptural representation, and contains newly commissioned essays by Suzanne Hudson and Nicolas Bourriaud, as well as a conversation between Bob Nickas and Beshty.

Braco Dimitrijevic gained international fame in the 1970s with his Casual Passersby series, in which gigantic photo-portraits of ordinary people were displayed on façades and billboards in European and American cities. In the early 1990s Dimitrijevic started a new cycle of portrait-installations, this time not using unknown people but artists, musicians and scientists better known for their achievements than for their names.

A superbly selected A–Z glossary of utopian structures, zones and acts in art and beyond, Utopics is a guide to artistically “living otherwise”—whether through imaginative design solutions (Andrea Zittel, Lang & Baumann), artist republics (Ian Hamilton Finlay's Little Sparta, Robert Filliou's République Géniale), temporary utopias (Atelier Van Lieshout's AVL-Ville) or extraordinary spaces (James Turrell's Roden Crater) and situations (Rirkrit Tiravanija). Also itemized here are potentially utopian entities such as bees, islands and squats, plus more theoretical forays such as Rudolf Steiner's educational philosophy and Buckminster Fuller's utopian proposals. Sporting a wraparound poster dustjacket and bound in a glittering night-sky cloth, Utopics shows that by acts of creativity both intimate and epic, and by locating the nooks at the perimeters of society, the strictures of contemporary living can be fruitfully sabotaged.
“My work has moved away from the idea of a painting as an object,” Michael Lin (born 1964) observes. “I'm more interested in creating a painting as a space to occupy.” Lin makes painted installations that reconfigure institutional spaces with designs appropriated from Taiwanese textiles. This publication is the first comprehensive overview of his work.
Selections from the Dakis Joannou Collection Curated by Jeff Koons
Published by New Museum. Text by Lisa Phillips, Massimiliano Gioni. Conversation with Jeff Koons.
Skin Fruit: Selections from the Dakis Joannou Collection accompanies the first exhibition in the United States of the Athens-based Dakis Joannou Collection, renowned as one of the leading collections of contemporary art in the world. This is also the first exhibition curated by artist Jeff Koons, whose work inspired Joannou to start his collection in 1985. Koons has selected sculptures, works on paper, paintings, installations and videos by a group of artists that includes Janine Antoni, Matthew Barney, Maurizio Cattelan, Nathalie Djurberg, Robert Gober, Mike Kelley, Terence Koh, Mark Manders, Paul McCarthy, Tim Noble and Sue Webster, Kiki Smith, Christiana Soulou, Jannis Varelas, Kara Walker and Andro Wekua, among others. This catalogue contains more than 100 full-color illustrations of works from Joannou's collection, and features Koons in conversation with Lisa Phillips; an essay by Massimiliano Gioni; full spreads from such classic (and rare) publications as Post Human; and an anthology of previously commissioned essays for Joannou's DESTE Foundation publications by Nicolas Bourriaud, Jeffrey Deitch, Peter Halley, Nancy Spector and Lynne Tillman.

Published by Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac. Text by Nicolas Bourriaud.
The noted Paris-born, Brooklyn-based painter Jules de Balincourt depicts a universe in which abstract and representational images collide, orbit and satellite among each other, creating a kind of loose, free-associating, non-linear narrative, according to the artist himself. This volume collects recent works exhibited at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac in Paris.

This first monograph on Bulgarian artist Plamen Dejanoff, who became known internationally for his 1990s collaborations with Swetlana Heger, includes a range of work--including his most recent construction-project-as-artwork: a complex of buildings including a museum, bookshop and studio in his hometown--produced together with a host of collaborating architects, designers and artists.

Video art, the Internet, globalization, nomadism, itinerant curators and biennale artists, Installation and Process art, PowerPoint presentations, multiculturalism, design, magazines, fashion, lounges, the DJ, VJ and house culture, blockbuster exhibitions in art galleries, social works of art and socially engaged artists… The art of the past 15 years has moved into these new territories rapidly--so rapidly that more artwork than theoretical reflection or historical contextualization has been generated. During the 1960s, artists and critics were fiercely engaged in naming each new trend--Op Art, Pop Art, Minimalism, Conceptualism. Movements were mapped as they happened. In the 1990s, however, the art itself, and the experience it provided, became enough. Focusing on themes such as The Body, Interactivity, Engagement, Documentary Strategies, Money and Curating, Right About Now provides a map for this work, from the 1990s to the present.
Published by Guggenheim Museum.

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.
Published by JRP|Ringier/Migros Museum fr Gegenwartskunst Zurich. Edited by Fernando Alvim, Heike Munder, Ulf Wuggenig, Essays by Oladélé Bamboyé, Mounir Fatmi, Kendell Geers, Loulou Cherinet, Simon Njami and Olu Oguibe.
This anthology emerged from a series of solo exhibitions by Kendell Geers, Olu Oguibe, Oldadélé Bamgboyé, Mounir Fatmi and Loulou Cherinet--all artists with connections to Africa and living abroad. Reaching beyond the dialectic of difference typical of so many exhibitions of “non-Western” artists, this collection by a twenty-first-century generation (all participants are between ages 35 and 42) aims to construct a new definition of contemporary African positions. These essays here are written by a diverse group of artists, writers, educators and critics, including Cameroonian Curator Simon Njami, and Olu Oguibe, Associate Professor of Art and African American Studies at the University of Connecticut.

Beyond the scope of the defining non-material characteristics of sound, sound becomes a formal material, a kind of audible sculpture accompanied by discourse on its constructive, societal, philosophical, and emotional aspects. At least, it does for the contemporary artists represented in Frequencies [HZ], each of whom works with sound within the context of visual art--Angela Bulloch, Farmersmanual, Ryoji Ikeda, Daniel Pflumm, Ultra-red, Mika Vainio, and others. With an audio CD ingeniously integrated into the book's cover design, and reproductions of sculptural and visual art, as well as specific, often minimalistic installations and interventions which employ sound or electronic experiments with sound, Frequencies [HZ] explores how sound impacts upon the perception of architecture and otherwise influences the components of individual experience. Participating artists reflect on the institutional context and the situation that evolves between the work of art and the viewer.
