Mel ChinMel Chin

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Andrei Codrescu, Lisa A. Crossman, Eleanor Heartney, Patricia Covo Johnson, Miranda Lash, Patricia C. Phillips.

Eschewing a trademark style, the common thread through Mel Chin’s practice is his conceptual rigor, thoughtful historicism and concern for social justice. His land-based works such as "Revival Field" from the early 1990s and "Operation Paydirt" (2008–ongoing) garnered significant international press for presenting the science of soil remediation as an art form. Challenging the traditional concept of a retrospective as a linear presentation of a single individual’s work over time, the publication celebrates the artist’s practice of constant evolution, re-examination, and collaboration. It includes an extensive illustrated chronology and an essay by the poet Andrei Codrescu, and is published on the occasion of a major Mel Chin exhibition at the New Orleans Museum of Art.

Text by Eleanor Heartney, Alanna Heiss.

Czech artist Frederico Diaz (born 1971) uses contemporary computer technology to devise extraordinary works of kinetic art that respond to their audience. This volume documents an interactive installation composed of thousands of black spheres assembled by two robots. Optical sensors monitor the viewers--their movements and even the color of their clothing--to create a data stream that directs the robots.

Shirin Neshat: Women Without MenShirin Neshat: Women Without Men

Published by Charta/Change Performing Arts.
Text by Shoja Azari, Eleanor Heartney, Shirin Neshat, Shahrnush Parsipur.

Women Without Men is renowned visual artist Shirin Neshat's feature-film debut. Its exquisitely crafted view of the artist's native Iran during its tumultuous British and American-backed coup d'état in 1953 won Neshat the Silver Lion at the 2009 Venice International Film Festival. Adapted from the novel by Iranian author Shahrnush Parsipur, the film draws together the initially separate stories of five female characters during those traumatic days. With a camera that floats sedately through the lives of the women and the countryside of Iran, Neshat explores the political and psychological dimensions of her characters as they converge in a metaphorical orchard. This volume unites stills from the series of five video installations that originated the film with photographs and texts by critic Eleanor Heartney, Parsipur and the artist.

Khanlar GasimovKhanlar Gasimov

Published by Charta.
Foreword by Eleanor Heartney. Text by Mila Askarova.

Whether using rice, candy, plastic bottles or human hair, Azerbaijani artist Khanlar Gasimov creates deceptively simple installations that charm and disarm simultaneously. Having witnessed tremendous socio-political and cultural transformation in his native country over the last several decades, the artist gravitates towards everyday objects from which he elicits a kind of cultural melancholy.

Published by McNay Art Museum.
Text by Eleanor Heartney, Rene Paul Barilleaux.

As our culture relocates into digital realms, numerous artists have returned to a studio practice grounded in “doing” and “making.” New Image Sculpture unites the work of artists who freely borrow from the worlds of ethnographic and material culture, folk art, fashion, hobby crafts, DIY and the shelves of Home Depot.

Andrew Rogers: Geoglyphs, Rhythms of LifeAndrew Rogers: Geoglyphs, Rhythms of Life

Published by Charta.
Text by Eleanor Heartney, Golan Levi, Lilly Wei, Laura M. Amrhein, Geoffrey Edwards, Ximena Jordan, Andrew Rogers, Carolyn Syangbo, Marian Sojak.

Since 1999--in the spirit of Land artists such as James Turrell and Michael Heizer--Australian sculptor Andrew Rogers has been working on Geoglyphs, Rhythms of Life, a series of massive stone geoglyphs (large-scale works carved into or drawn on the ground) intended to form a chain across the globe, as well as to serve as a metaphor for the cycle of life. Additionally, Rogers uses these works as backdrops for photographs of nude and pregnant women in a related series, also presented here, called Celebration of Life. The chain has thus far been completed in 12 locations across five continents with the assistance of 5,000 people. This exhaustive volume, featuring 1,436 reproductions, including aerial and satellite images, brims with on-site photographs recording Rogers' travels through a breathtaking array of landscapes, from the dizzying heights of the Bolivian Altiplano to the pristine serenity of Nepal's Himalayas.

Zhang Huan: Altered StatesZhang Huan: Altered States

Published by Charta / Asia Society.
Foreword by Vishakha N. Desai. Text by Melissa Chiu, Kong Bu, Eleanor Heartney.

Zhang Huan (born in China in 1965 and currently living in Shanghai) may be best known for his first performance, which sparked the cancellation of the group show at which it was staged. Of that encounter with China's censorship machinery, he says, "They had me write a self-criticism and pay a fine…for my 'misdeed,' promising that the exhibition would be reopened. I did what they said only for the sake of the show. But it was never opened." He continued exploring performance in private events--once testing the relationship between physical endurance and spiritual tranquility by covering himself with honey and lying in a squalid public toilet covered in flies--but he has never held another public performance in China. Zhang has been exploring cross-cultural life, and lately making introspective and even spiritual work, invoking the temporality of material existence by lying on a bed of ice surrounded by dogs at New York's P.S.1, for example. His critically acclaimed work is in the collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Saatchi Collection, the MacArthur Foundation and Yale University. Copublished with the Asia Society.

Shahzia SikanderShahzia Sikander

Published by Charta / Irish Museum of Modern Art.
Foreword by Enrique Juncosa. Text by Sean Kissane and Homi K. Bhabha.

Over the past 17 years, Shahzia Sikander has worked within the tradition of Indo-Persian miniature painting--creating a dialogue with a traditional form of art while engaging in a transformative task. Over the years, she has built a practice which seeks to understand miniature painting's historical significance as well as its contemporary relevance. This artist's book, which features many paper changes, gatefolds and a die-cut cover, brings the reader through Sikander's practice, which now embraces various media, from drawing and painting to animation. It accompanies Sikander's first major solo museum exhibition in Europe--at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin--and provides an overview of her work up to 2006. It features essays by the noted Harvard cultural theorist Homi Bhabha and the exhibition curator and noted writer on Modern and contemporary art, Sean Kissane.

Yang Yong

Published by Blue Kingfisher.
Edited by Yang Yong, Huang Yang, Fei Yuenong. Interviews by Tong Chen, Eleanor Heartney, Hanru Hou, Karen Smith, Martina Keoppel Yang.

At first glance, one might compare the young Chinese photographer Yang Yong to Nan Goldin or Larry Clark, for he, too creates sexy/abject pictures of marginal urban youth. However, when one examines Yang Yong's work more closely, one connects it with its larger context, the "model" city of Shenzhen. In this light, Yang Yong's work can be seen as a kind of photo-roman that exposes the specific state of being that is shared by his generation, who have immigrated from all over China to reinvent themselves in this artificially created "Special Economic Zone" that is supposed to be a testing ground for China's new urbanization and modernization. Yang Yong is a sensitive and accurate observer of his generation, though his work is by no means documentary: The scenes he depicts are all directed and set up by the artist himself. Perhaps this is why Yang Yong's work always radiates a certain cinematic flair.

Annie RattiAnnie Ratti

Published by Charta.
Interview by Cesare Pietroiusti. Text by Giorgio Verzotti, Iwona Blazwick, Eleanor Heartney, Lea Vergine.

Annie Ratti creates environments that combine form and function, ethics and aesthetics, inviting the viewer into a space of politics and pleasure. She draws on the vernacular of domestic furniture to build sculptures for sitting or swinging in, reading in or sleeping on, and originally proposed to put a bridge into New York's White Box in Chelsea for the installation documented here. Instead she has transformed that gallery space, through a series of multimedia effects, into a pool--a space in which to reflect on the social complexity of urban life on the waterfront. Beyond the interactions of such universally known forms--the chair, the bed, the bridge--Ratti looks to specifics, geographical, historical and social, and transforms her private experience of the world into a public and participatory event. Ratti lives between her native Italy and France, Britain and America, and has exhibited in galleries and museums throughout Europe and America.

Published by Charta/Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa.
Edited by Francesca Pasimi. Essays by Angela Vettese, Francesca Pasini, Eleanor Heartney, David Morgan, Nicolas Bourriaud, Harald Szeemann, Gerald Matt, Jonathan Goodman, Bernhard Fibicher and Keiji Nakamura.

The Korean artist Kimsooja is best known for her Bottari sculptures, made from colorful matrimonial bed covers, and for her video installations. The site-specific video To Breathe/Respirare, shown at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice immediately preceding productions of "Die Walkure" and "I Quatro Rusteghi," presents a spectrum of colors pulsing and gaining momentum until they reach the frenetic rhythm of the artist's breathing. Kimsooja includes a wide selection of work and of critical essays published over the past 10 years by such writers as Nicolas Bourriaud, Bernhard Fibicher, Gerald Matt, David Morgan, Keiji Nakamura and Harald Szeemann, as well as new contributions by Eleanor Heartney, Francesca Pasini and Angela Vettese. It is at once a monograph and a critical anthology.

Chen Zhen: A TributeChen Zhen: A Tribute

Published by P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center.
Edited by Jeffrey Uslip and Rachael Zur. Essays by Jeffrey Deitch, Eleanor Heartney, France Morin, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Jerome Sans, Hou Hanru, Foreword by Alanna Heiss and Glenn Lowry. Introduction by Antoine Guerrero.

During the last five years of his life, Chen Zhen expended his energies to create a body of work that poetically articulated his knowledge of traditional Chinese culture and Western avant-garde art. Born in Shanghai in 1955, Chen grew up during the tumultuous years of the Cultural Revolution. When China transitioned out of that era, he became interested in combining traditional Chinese philosophy (forbidden under Maoist rule) and Western practices as an alternative to the government's official cultural ideology. The resulting body of work held as a central theme the creation of harmony through difference, taking the human body, illness and medicine as metaphors, mixing cross-cultural social dynamics before multiculturalism and globalization had ever been articulated. Exploring the intricate and often paradoxical relationship between the material and the spiritual, the community and the individual, interior and exterior, Chen used sound and everyday materials such as candles, beds, chairs, and even chamber pots, linking the physical world to the spiritual, ritualistic one. The result was an aesthetic immersed in the traditional past but aligned with the present. This catalogue accompanies an exhibition held at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in tribute to the artist, who died from a rare medical condition known as autoimmune hemolytic anemia in 2000, in Paris, where he had emigrated as an art student in the mid-80s.

Artwork by Seton Smith, Kiki Smith, Tony Smith. Edited by Michael Rush. Text by Gilbert Brownstone, Eleanor Heartney, David Pagel, Adrian Dannatt.

Not your typical family, the Smith household consisted of renowned architect and modernist Tony Smith and his daughters, artist Kiki Smith, whose multimedia works have drawn on mythic, folk, and biblical stories, and photographer Seton Smith, known for her large-format Cibachromes of seemingly banal interiors. For the first time, works by all three Smiths appear together, presenting one American family, two generations of the vanguard, three distinct visions, and the exigencies of a range of media.

Since its founding seven years ago by Pace Foods heiress Linda Pace, ArtPace has become one of the premiere foundations for contemporary art. An artist residency program based in San Antonio, Texas, ArtPace's goal is to give artists time and space in which to imagine new ways to work. Each year, nine artists (three from Texas, three from other areas of the United States and three from abroad) are invited to the foundation to create new work. Selected by guest curators the likes of Robert Storr and Okwui Enwezor, the list of artists who have undertaken residencies at ArtPace is impressive, prescient and diverse, including Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Annette Messager, Tracey Moffatt, Xu Bing, Nancy Rubins, Cornelia Parker, Inigo Manglano-Ovalle, Glenn Ligon, Kendell Geers, Carolee Schneemann, Mona Hatoum, Isaac Julien, Arturo Herrera, and Christian Jankowski. Dreaming Red includes illustrations of all the works created at ArtPace since its inception, an essay by art historian Eleanor Heartney, short essays on selected artists by the guest curators, including Cuauhtémoc Medina, Lynne Cooke, Chrissie Iles and Judith Russi Kirshner, and a lengthy essay on the personal history of the foundation and its founder.
