Published by Matthew Marks Gallery.
Conversation with Daniel Birnbaum, John Kelsey.

Before his untimely death at the age of 35, Michel Majerus (1967–2002) helped reset the terms for painting in the 1990s and early 2000s. This fully illustrated catalogue includes a conversation between Daniel Birnbaum and John Kelsey that sheds light on the artist’s dizzying fusion of commercial imagery, painterly gesture and stylistic quotation. As Kelsey explains, Majerus’ work anticipates many of the issues now confronting image makers more than a decade after his death: “His attention to speed and screens--as well as to branding, the viral spread of youth subcultures, screen space, etc.--seems to acknowledge a certain erosion and dispersion already picking up speed.” In Birnbaum’s words, Majerus “concentrated on the things that surrounded him and made possible new ways of organizing visual elements--on the canvas and beyond.” This catalogue, the first US publication on Majerus, also includes an illustrated exhibition history and a detailed bibliography.

Michel Majerus: If We Are Dead, So It IsMichel Majerus: If We Are Dead, So It Is

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Text by Udo Kittelmann.

Belgian-born artist Michel Majerus died tragically in 2002, at the age of 35, in a plane crash--after which the files for this publication were salvaged from his hard drive. This book is an attempt to reconstruct his intentions as faithfully as possible from the files that he left behind; it is published with the artist's estate and his Berlin gallery, Neugerriemschneider.

Michel Majerus: Los AngelesMichel Majerus: Los Angeles

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Essay by Joachim Jäger.

This is the first monograph on Michel Majerus's Los Angeles paintings--considered his most forceful in the years before his 2002 death. Majerus was known for his works that combined art history and popular culture--canonized styles, repackaging and juxtaposing familiar visual images, graphics and text with varied artistic techniques and genres--all on a colossal scale.
