Amazing! Mel Bochner Prints

From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

Published by Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation.
Edited by Carolyn Vaughan. Foreword by Jordan D. Schnitzer. Text by Sienna Brown, Ruth Fine, Barry Schwabsky. Interview by Jan Howard.

For more than 50 years, American conceptualist Mel Bochner (born 1940) has been shaping dialogs between art and language through exhibition concepts, paintings and sculptures that embrace systems and structures to reveal their cracks and limitations, undermining the means we use to comprehend the world. Bochner created his first prints in 1973 at the invitation of publisher Robert Feldman of Parasol Press (who introduced a generation of minimalist and conceptual artists to printmaking through his work at Crown Point Press). Since then, Bochner has employed many different forms of printmaking, using and abusing its material possibilities and its unpredictability to counter the methodical fashion in which plates and stencils are cut, characters per line are fixed, or print runs set. This volume surveys Bochner's longstanding engagement with various types of printmaking, from aquatints to monoprints.

Mel Bochner: MonoprintsMel Bochner: Monoprints

Words, Words, Words...

Published by Two Palms, NY.
Text and interview by Barry Schwabsky.

New York City-based artist Mel Bochner (born 1940) is one of the founders of Conceptual and installation art in America. Monoprints is, surprisingly, the first book devoted solely to this important artist’s experimental printed works, even though Bochner has been producing text-based works for over 40 years. In the last 18 years, Bochner has produced a remarkable body of printed works in collaboration with Two Palms studio in New York, and Monoprints focuses on the often large-scale and incredibly physical text-based works made using the studio’s industrial hydraulic press. The book is illustrated with 34 full-color reproductions and includes an essay by critic Barry Schwabsky, as well as an interview by Schwabsky with Bochner, in which the artist explains the genesis and evolution of this central part of his art-making activities.

Mel Bochner: Photographs and Not PhotographsMel Bochner: Photographs and Not Photographs

Published by Fraenkel Gallery.
Edited by Jeffrey Fraenkel. Text by Mel Bochner, Jeffrey Weiss.

Mel Bochner (born 1940) coined some of Postminimalist and Conceptual art's most characteristic strategies--the gallery as subject, language as material, the photo documentation of works as the work itself, the appropriation of ephemeral materials by other artists--and directed those strategies towards a radical excavation of all that had been rendered peripheral to art's content. In the mid- to late 1960s, Bochner became deeply involved with photography, producing a groundbreaking group of photographs that hover tantalizingly between painting and photography. Mel Bochner: Photographs and Not Photographs presents reproductions of these early works, as well as the artist's classic 1970 essay "Misunderstandings (A Theory of Photography)" and a selection of wall drawings and paintiings. Bochner has collaborated closely on the design of this beautifully produced volume, the cover of which is made of sturdy plexiglas.

Mel BochnerMel Bochner

Published by Domaine De Kerguehennec.
Text and interview by Frédéric Paul.

New York-based Conceptual art pioneer Mel Bochner writes in this monograph, "What I try to do is stay open to the work as it develops, not impose myself on it, but permit it to take me somewhere. If I had a model, I suppose it would be those ancient Chinese artists who changed their name three times during their lifetime, in order not to become the prisoner of a style." The book introduces new riffs--produced for an exhibition at Domaine de Kerguéhennec, in Brittany, France--on several well-known bodies of work, including Bochner's recent ongoing series The Thesaurus Paintings, in which a group of often humorous synonyms (lazy, lethargic, crazy, vulgar and irascible, for instance) are painted in brightly colored block letters, and the Measurement Pieces (conceived in the 1960s), in which the walls are highlighted with numbered arrows indicating their measurements.
