Ellen Gallagher: Don't Axe MeEllen Gallagher: Don't Axe Me

Published by New Museum.
Foreword by Lisa Phillips. Text by Gary Carrion-Murayari.

Over the past two decades, Ellen Gallagher (born 1965) has created a body of work exploring notions of materiality, history and language. In her early paintings, Gallagher dispersed fields of repeated bulging lips and eyes--borrowed from the imagery of minstrel performances--on gridlike backgrounds of penmanship paper. She continued to incorporate historical material in subsequent works, most famously using midcentury advertisements for African-American beauty products from Ebony magazine and other publications of the period, abstracting portraits of models with yellow Plasticine, oil paint, pencil marks and incisions. For the first major New York museum exhibition of her work at New Museum, Gallagher produced a series of new paintings that both extend her formal and thematic interests and mark a radical new development. Each of the pieces consists of tendril-like formations incised into layers of paint. This complex series is featured in this catalogue along with a booklet of her work from 19932009.

Published by Anthony d'Offay.
Essay by Thyrza Nichols Goodeve.

The grammar and volubility of Ellen Gallagher's two-dimensional artworks, their abstract layerings and subtle racial commentary, are explored in this luxurious catalogue. Numerous gatefolds reveal the details of her singular vocabulary of signs, and an accompanying essay considers them in light of the work of Gertrude Stein.

Ellen GallagherEllen Gallagher

Published by D.A.P./ICA Boston.
Edited by Jessica Morgan. Essays by Robert Storr and Greg Tate. Interview by Jessica Morgan. Foreword by Jill Medvedow.

Ellen Gallagher has emerged as one of the most acclaimed young artists in the United States over the past decade, and this book will be the first to present a significant body of recent work in one volume. Gallagher inflects the surface of her layered drawings and paintings with unique irony and wit. They refer obliquely to a history of African American stereotypes through minute interventions on the canvas: tongues, eyes, wigs, and lips appear like individual musical notes. Their lack of fully formed bodies underlines the manner in which these stereotypical images were used: appearing as disembodied parts in advertisements, toys, and other products of the popular culture. It is through repetition of this limited vocabulary of signs that meanings are established and transformed in Gallagher's work. The large-scale paintings in the exhibition and this accompanying book explore her personal iconography of forms. Included will be Gallagher's recent all-black paintings as well as a carefully selected group of drawings from the artist's own collection. In addition, it features an extensive interview with the artist, for which she has executed several drawings specifically to illustrate this section, as well as critical essays on the work.

Ellen Gallagher: PreserveEllen Gallagher: Preserve

Published by Des Moines Art Center.
Essays by Jeff Fleming, Robin D.G. Kelley, Catherine de Zegher. Introduction by Susan Lubowsky Talbott.

This publication accompanies Ellen Gallagher's exhibition at the Des Moines Art Center, which features twenty new drawings and a site-specific sculpture. In all of her work, Gallagher merges traditional abstraction with social commentary; this surprising union results in engaging and poetic works that examine the cultural signs of race. The major sculpture in this exhibition and catalogue has the appearance of a jungle gym, and is formed of obsessively painted, intertwined wooden dowels. The book includes essays by several prominent scholars, and presents Gallagher's interest in cultural history, science and science fiction.
