Charles Gaines: Gridwork 1974-1989Charles Gaines: Gridwork 1974-1989

Published by The Studio Museum in Harlem.
Edited by Naima J. Keith. Foreword by Thelma Golden. Text by Courtney J. Martin, Anne Ellegood, Howard Singerman, Ellen Tani, Malik Gaines, Bennett Simpson, Abbe Schriber, Jamillah James.

Widely regarded as one of the leading exponents of postminimalist art in the late 1970s, Charles Gaines (born 1944) is known primarily for his photographs, drawings and works on paper that investigate systems, cognition and language. Considered against the backdrop of the Black Arts Movement of the 1970s and the rise of multiculturalism in the 1980s, the works in Charles Gaines: Gridwork 1974-1989 are radical gestures. Eschewing overt discussions of race, they take a detached approach to identity that exemplifies Gaines' determination to transcend the conversations of his time and create new paths. Charles Gaines: Gridwork 1974-1989 gathers significant examples from several of the artist's most important series, including 75 key works from the mid-1970s through the late 1980s. It features drawings and photographs from public and private collections--some of which were previously considered lost--and essays by leading scholars and curators.

In the Shadow of Numbers: Charles GainesIn the Shadow of Numbers: Charles Gaines

Selected Works from 1975-2012

Published by Pomona College Museum of Art.
Edited and with foreword by Rebecca McGrew, Ciara Ennis. Text by Michael Ned Holte, Charles Gaines.

In the Shadow of Numbers accompanies a survey exhibition and collects for the first time new writings and images on the influential Los Angeles-based artist Charles Gaines (born 1944). Gaines investigates the relationships between aesthetic experience, political beliefs and the formation of meaning. His work over the last 40 years has typically employed systems and rule-based procedures to explore how we experience and derive meaning from art. Although Gaines is often linked with Conceptual artists of the 1960s, he identifies more closely with John Cageís examinations of indeterminacy in both composition and performance. The book includes an extensive selection of images of drawings, photographs, sculptures and video from several bodies of Gainesís work over the last several decades.
