Mike Kelley: ArenasMike Kelley: Arenas

Published by Skarsdedt.
Text by Cary Levine.

Mike Kelley’s Arenas series of the late 80s and early 90s mark a shift away from the artist’s performance-oriented activity and towards a new sculptural dexterity, in which cultural resonance is elicited from an eerie reframing of everyday objects. First exhibited in 1990 at Metro Pictures, the Arenas are comprised of stuffed animals arranged around the edges of blankets (or occasionally posed isolate in their center). Ten or twenty such toys in such groupings might convey a cheery childhood picnic scenario, but Kelley rarely selects more than five or six, and places them carefully so that their cuddliness and their capacity to comfort is entirely canceled out. Instead, we encounter the toy as a commodity entity—a mass-manufactured product positioned to enter into play but far from inviting it. Skarstedt’s exhibition of seven of the eleven Arenas is here recorded in superb installation shots and with critical commentary.

Mike Kelley: Educational Complex Onwards 1995-2008Mike Kelley: Educational Complex Onwards 1995-2008

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Anne Pontégnie. Text by Mike Kelley, Anne Pontégnie, Diedrich Diederichsen, Howard Singerman.

In 1995, Mike Kelley devised the Educational Complex, an amalgam of every school he attended and of the house he grew up in, "with all the parts I couldn't remember left out"--a total environment, "sort of like the model of a Modernist community college." The blind spots in this model represent forgotten ("repressed") zones, and so are reconceived by Kelley as sites of institutional abuse, for which specific traumas were devised (each having their own video and sculptural component). For Kelley, this work marks the beginning of a series of projects in which pseudo-autobiography, repressed-memory syndrome and the reinterpretation of previous pieces become the tools for a poetic deconstruction of such complexes and the way we interact with and narrate them. Educational Complex Onwards, 1995-2008 is the first book to collect these works. Each project within the series is extensively documented by artist's texts and reference material, while essays by Diedrich Diederichsen, Howard Singerman and Anne Pontégnie examine the place of this body of work within Kelley's oeuvre.

Mike Kelley: Memory Ware, Wood Grain, CarpetMike Kelley: Memory Ware, Wood Grain, Carpet

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Emi Fontana.

Memory Ware, Wood Grain, Carpet: these three series are brought together for this insightful publication. Kelley consciously presents a nexus of works whose similar surface treatments and presentation inevitable evoke Modernist painting history. Emi Fontana writes: “Popularly known as the master of exercises in garbage style, Kelley is in reality Mr. Clean. He situates his output within a wider system, that of recent Modernist art history, appropriating Modernism's structures, acting from within but without exercising the appropriational coldness common to the gestures of many American artists of his generation.” 53 images present Kelley's most recent works in vivid color.

Mike Kelley: Minor HistoriesMike Kelley: Minor Histories

Published by MIT.

What John C. Welchman calls the "blazing network of focused conflations" from which Mike Kelley's styles are generated is on display in all its diversity in this second volume of the artist's writings. The first volume, Foul Perfection, contained thematic essays and writings about other artists; this collection concentrates on Kelley's own work, ranging from texts in "voices" that grew out of scripts for performance pieces to expository critical and autobiographical writings. Minor Histories organizes Kelley's writings into five sections. "Statements" consists of twenty pieces produced between 1984 and 2002 (most of which were written to accompany exhibitions), including "Ajax," which draws on Homer, Colgate- Palmolive, and Longinus to present its eponymous hero; "Some Aesthetic High Points," an exercise in autobiography that counters the standard artist bio included in catalogs and press releases; and a sequence of "creative writings" that use mass cultural tropes in concert with high art mannerisms--approximating in prose the visual styles that characterize Kelley's artwork. "Video Statements and Proposals" are introductions to videos made by Kelley and other artists, including Paul McCarthy and Bob Flanagan and Sheree Rose. "Image-Texts" offers writings that accompany or are part of artworks and installations. This section includes "A Stopgap Measure," Kelley's zestful millennial essay in social satire, and "Meet John Doe," a collage of appropriated texts. "Architecture" features an discussion of Kelley's Educational Complex (1995) and an interview in which he reflects on the role of architecture in his work. Finally, "Ufology" considers the aesthetics and sexuality of space as manifested by UFO sightings and abduction scenarios.

Mike Kelley: Foul PerfectionMike Kelley: Foul Perfection

Published by MIT.

The work of artist Mike Kelley (b. 1954) embraces performance, installation, drawing, painting, video, and sculpture. Drawing distinctively on high art and vernacular traditions, including historical research, popular culture, and psychology, Kelley came to prominence in the 1980s with a series of sculptures composed of craft materials. His recent work offers dialogues with architecture and with repressed memory syndrome, and a sustained inquiry into his own aesthetic and social history. The subjects on which Kelley has written are as varied as his artistic media. They include the work of fellow artists, sound, caricature, the uncanny, UFOlogy, and gender-bending.This book offers a diverse collection of Kelley's writings from the last twenty-five years. It contains major critical texts on art, film, and the wider culture, including his piece on the aesthetic he calls "urban Gothic."

Mike Kelley, Paul McCarthy, Raymond Pettibon: Pay for Your PleasuresMike Kelley, Paul McCarthy, Raymond Pettibon: Pay for Your Pleasures

Published by Chicago.

Mike Kelley, Paul McCarthy, and Raymond Pettibon—these Southern California artists formed a “bad boy” trifecta. Early purveyors of abject art, the trio produced work ranging from sculptures of feces to copulating stuffed animals, and gained notoriety from being perverse. Showing how their work rethinks transgressive art practices in the wake of the 1960s, Pay for Your Pleasures argues that their collaborations as well as their individual enterprises make them among the most compelling artists in the Los Angeles area in recent years.

Cary Levine focuses on Kelley’s, McCarthy’s, and Pettibon’s work from the 1970s through the 1990s, plotting the circuitous routes they took in their artistic development. Drawing on extensive interviews with each artist, he identifies the diverse forces that had a crucial bearing on their development—such as McCarthy’s experiences at the University of Utah, Kelley’s interest in the Detroit-based White Panther movement, Pettibon’s study of economics, and how all three participated in burgeoning subcultural music scenes. Levine discovers a common political strategy underlying their art that critiques both nostalgia for the 1960s counterculture and Reagan-era conservatism. He shows how this strategy led each artist to create strange and unseemly images that test the limits of not only art but also gender roles, sex, acceptable behavior, poor taste, and even the gag reflex that separates pleasure from disgust. As a result, their work places viewers in uncomfortable situations that challenge them to reassess their own values.

The first substantial analysis of Kelley, McCarthy, and Pettibon, Pay for Your Pleasures shines new light on three artists whose work continues to resonate in the world of art and politics.

Mike Kelley  (Contemporary Artists (Phaidon))Mike Kelley (Contemporary Artists (Phaidon))

Published by Phaidon.

Mike Kelley (b.1954) is one of the best contemporary examples of an artist who, like Yves Klein, Piero Manzoni and Vito Acconci before him, combines sculpture with performance. Best known for his assemblage sculptures made from stuffed children's toys, often set upon the 'stage' of a homemade Afghan rug, Kelley draws upon the Modernist traditions of the found object and collage in his colourful, irreverent sculptures. Childhood and adolescence are referenced with all the sexual ambiguity, tastelessness and low humour associated with those age groups. His attitude of aesthetic disobedience, bridging 'low' (crafts) and 'high' (sculpture, painting) forms of art, has its roots in the rejection of the social and moral fabric of American culture. Despite his subversion and anti-art tactics, Kelley has been recognized since the 1980s by the international art world as one of the most significant and representative artists working today in the United States, and his work has been shown at venues as diverse as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Paris's Musee du Louvre. In the Survey, California-based art historian and critic John C. Welchman exmaines Kelley's relationship to 1970s post-Minimalism, American popular cultures, 1980s appropriation and the conceptual vernacular of the 1990s. German art critic and editor Isabelle Graw discusses with the artist his aesthetic and symbolic strategies in the cultural contexts of America and Europe. In the Focus, architectural theorist Anthony Vidler explores the psycho-geography of Kelley's Educational Complex (1995), an architectural model based on the artist's memory traces of his educational environs. For the Artist's Choice, Kelley has selected two early twentieth-century texts that have influenced his investigations of primal psychological drives and aesthetics: The Use Value of D. A. F. de Sade (An Open Letter to My Current Comrades) (1929) by Georges Bataille and The Book of the Damned (1919) by Charles Fort. Mike Kelley's writings include project descriptions and accompanying texts from his major works; a retrospective view of his radical rock band Destroy All Monsters; and essays on prevailing themes, such as caricature, in the cultural history of representation.

Published by Rizzoli.

A catalogue documenting the last two exhibitions of new work by American artist Mike Kelley, held in 2011 at Gagosian Gallery in Los Angeles and London. Mike Kelley made nostalgia, memory, and repression in everyday life the topics of his idiosyncratic sculptures, performances, paintings, and installations, which conflate vernacular sources and high modernist aesthetics. A veteran of the Los Angeles conceptual art scene, Kelley used deconstructive strategies in order to challenge the established norms of contemporary culture, both high and low.

Michael Smith: Baby Ikki at the MuseumMichael Smith: Baby Ikki at the Museum

Published by Yale/Whitney Museum of Art.

Michael Smith (b. 1951) is known for his groundbreaking work in performance art as well as his immersive mixed media installations. Since 1979, the majority of his work has centered on his extraordinarily prescient and sympathetic character, Mike. Smith's other recurring performance persona is Baby Ikki, whose bizarre and precipitous infancy is marked by conspicuous facial hair, oversized diapers, and undersized sunglasses.

Formatted and designed like a children's board book, Baby Ikki at the Museum features the eighteen-month-old character posing in front of works of art in the Whitney Museum of American Art. He acts as a wide-eyed explorer wandering in a new world, examining and responding to works in the Museum's collection by pointing, staring, or offering quizzical looks. Lacking judgment, consideration, and caution, Baby Ikki possesses an abundance of curiosity and has an insatiable appetite for attention, even when posing with priceless works of art. Providing an entirely new angle from which to view a premier art institution, the photographs in this book are at times comedic and at others unsettling for their irreverence and perceptiveness.

Mike Kelley: KandorsMike Kelley: Kandors

Published by Chicago.

Kandor is the former capital of the doomed planet of Krypton—and the last surviving vestige of Superman’s destroyed home. Captured and miniaturized by an evil alien nemesis, it is now maintained by Superman under a glass bell in his icy headquarters, the Fortress of Solitude.

Because the image of Kandor was never codified, its depiction in comics has varied greatly over the years. Presenting a group of artworks entitled Kandors, American mixed-media artist Mike Kelley takes up this theme and realizes a number of versions of the imaginary city beneath enormous hand-blown glass bells. In spite of their obvious differences, they all claim to be the same city, showing Kandor to be both a constant and a continually reshaped relic of Superman’s traumatic childhood. Documenting the transformation of two-dimensional comic images into the fantastical sculptures reproduced here, the book chronicles Kelley’s attempts at a work that operates in three dimensions yet preserves the impression of graphic flatness.

Since Superman’s first appearance more than seventy years ago, he has become a full-fledged pop cultural icon, and his devotees will delight in the opportunity to delve deeper into his backstory. Fans of comic books, graphic novels, and contemporary art will also be enchanted by this fascinating look at the show Frieze Magazine called “a visual tour de force, a ghostly yet breathtaking spectacle that leaves gallery-goers feeling as though they’ve landed on another planet.”

This 17 track, 72-minute CD contains early revamped DAM classics of 'You Can't Kill Kill' and 'Evil Works,' plus many newer exotic oddities like 'Indecipherable' and 'Show No Shame.' Included are cover versions of The Seeds' '900 Million People Daily All Making Love' and the most bizarre cover yet of Jon Anderson's Yes classic, 'Clear Day.' Stretching out into spacey sonic territory, DAM attacks live in Japan at their crusty best with original founding members Mike Kelley, Jim Shaw and Cary Loren supported by Art Byington and Dave Muller."

Mike KelleyMike Kelley

Published by Prestel.

This thematic retrospective catalog is the most comprehensive volume ever published on the iconoclastic American artist Mike Kelley.

From the mid-1970s, Mike Kelley assembled an incredibly diverse and often controversial body of work. A multidisciplinary impresario, he created works on paper, paintings, sculpture, video, installation, and performance art that managed to be at once shocking yet humorous, complex yet accessible. This companion volume to a much-anticipated exhibition brings a fresh understanding to the artist’s work by seeking to address the more poetic aspects of Kelley’s work through Eva Meyer-Hermann’s unique curatorial approach. Here she presents individual works in new combinations that cross the boundaries of chronology, bodies of work, and former artistic project groups. Identifying themes such as architecture, language, identity, Informe, power, modernisms, nostalgia, and religion, the book represents ideas that have informed Kelley’s work throughout his career. As a result, the overarching lines of his oeuvre become visible and accessible. This book features essays, a fully annotated plate section, and a newly researched and revised biography and bibliography of Kelley’s work. The publication promises to be the definitive work on the artist.

Mike Kelley. Platos Cave, Rothkos Chapel, Lincolns Profile (with Sonic Youth)/ The Peristaltic AirwavesMike Kelley. Platos Cave, Rothkos Chapel, Lincolns Profile (with Sonic Youth)/ The Peristaltic Airwaves

Published by Compound Annex Records.

This two CD set includes remastered recordings of Kelley’s 55 minute performance poem, Plato’s Cave, Rothko’s Chapel, Lincoln’s Profile at Artists Space, New York on Dec. 5th, 1985 and The Peristaltic Airwaves, a live performance that aired on KPFK Radio, Los Angeles on September 30th, 1986. The only existing audio documentation of Mike Kelley’s groundbreaking performance work. Plato’s Cave Rothko’s Chapel, Lincoln’s Profile in Kelley’s words was the “longest and most elaborate” of the texts he’d written for solo performance. With Molly Cleator, incidental music by Sonic Youth and Adam Rudolph, this CD showcases Kelley’s humorous and profane text from the performance, a didgeridoo, and scorching noise from the band. The Peristaltic Airwaves- a live radio broadcast- draws on similar material and employs sound effects, a house band, call-ins, and other live radio staples to create a unique and jarring quasi-narrative collage. With Jack Skelley and Nic Greene, Dave Childs and Nancy Evans. Coproduced by High Performance Magazine and Jacki Apple for “Soundings” on KPFK Pacifica Radio.

Mike Kelley/ Scott Benzel. Profondeurs VertesMike Kelley/ Scott Benzel. Profondeurs Vertes

Published by Compound Annex Records.

Profondeurs Vertes is the title of a three-channel video installation produced by Mike Kelley for the Louvre, Paris, in 2006. The music on this CD functions as the soundtrack music for the three videos. Profondeur Vertes begins with a Traditional Sea Chanty complete with waves, creaking timbers, and seagulls, moving into an airy Romantic-era piano and harp piece based on Charles Tomlinson Griffes’ Veil of Dreams which then transitions into an orchestral rendition of the Shark Attack from John Singleton Copley’s painting “Watson and the Shark”; more Chanty’s follow and a rendition of Lautréamont’s Maldoror recited in French complete the cycle of Kelley’s thought.
