Louise Lawler: ReceptionsLouise Lawler: Receptions

Published by The Museum of Modern Art.
Edited with text by Roxana Marcoci. Text by Rhea Anastas, Mieke Bal, Douglas Crimp, Rosalyn Deutsche, Diedrich Diederichsen, David Platzker, Julian Stallabrass.

A major exhibition on the 40-year career of the Pictures Generation pioneer, whose work engages conceptualism and institutional critique
Published in conjunction with the exhibition Louise Lawler: WHY PICTURES NOW, at The Museum of Modern Art, this volume charts the creative practice of one of the most influential artists working in the fields of picture-making and institutional critique. For the past 40 years, Louise Lawler has raised questions about art—about the circumstances that produce it, its circulation and the societal frameworks in which it appears. Many of the ideas that arise out of her work relate to theories of reception, the belief that the meaning of an artwork shifts and morphs depending on who looks at it and where it is seen. As the title of this publication suggests, many kinds of reception are possible.
In the eight essays in Receptions, renowned cultural thinkers unpack Lawler’s witty and provocative art, while a generous plate section comprehensively documents her images, installations and films. A selection of the ephemera she has designed, ranging from gallery announcements and posters to magazine covers and matchbooks, reflects her interest in how art reaches viewers beyond the museum and gallery system. The design of the book’s jacket is a typically ingenious Lawler production: when turned inside out, it becomes what she calls an “adjusted to fit” work—one of her photographs reformatted to fill the space available.
In our contemporary atmosphere of political theater, shocking wealth disparity and commodity culture, the insight, resistance and sly commentary of Lawler’s work feels as poignant and corrective as it has ever been. This book is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in late-20th- and early 21st-century art.

Louise Lawler (born 1947) is a New York artist whose work came to notoriety in the late 1970s and early 1980s, when she began taking pictures of other artists’ work displayed in collectors’ homes, museums, storage spaces and auction houses to question the value, meaning and use of art.

Louise Lawler And OthersLouise Lawler And Others

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Essays by Jack Bankowsky, Andrea Fraser, Birgit Pelzer, Isabelle Graw, Christian Kravagna, George Baker, Philipp Kaiser, et al.

Louise Lawler subjects the concept of art to critical analysis by re-photographing her own drawings, paintings, and sculptures and incorporating aspects of their immediate surroundings into these "copies." Viewed with a certain detachment, her demystified reproductions also reveal the contextual and situational connotations of her artworks, which recede to a certain extent into the background. Lawler also applies these methods to the work of other artists, photographing their art pieces, particularly as they are mounted in private collections. These contextualizing photographs retain fragments of their surroundings, thus clarifying how the presentation and interpretation of artwork is never free of value judgment or environmental influence. This publication offers the first retrospective overview of the artistic accomplishments of Louise Lawler over the past 20 years. Included are a number of very recent works, some of them created especially for this book.
