Aleksandra Mir: Newsroom 1986-2000Aleksandra Mir: Newsroom 1986-2000

Published by Mary Boone Gallery.

Psycho cops, gay riots, stock market implosions, heroic acts, serial killers, Rudy, Ronald, Osama and The Donald all feature heavily in this pitch-perfect, oversized collection of the large-scale, black-and-white Sharpie drawings created by the noted international conceptualist Aleksandra Mir (and a rotating cast of assistants) live, daily, at New York's Mary Boone Gallery in the fall of 2007. For the critically acclaimed show, Mir and her crew reproduced, by hand, more than 200 of the most outrageous front covers to have graced New York's top tabloids, The New York Post and the Daily News, from 1986 to 2000. The New York Times' Roberta Smith praised the work's "goofy, graffiti energy," noting, "The works at Boone redo the news, reminding us how soon we forget and exaggerating the ephemeral beauty--or at least boldness--of a genre of graphic design and language that we consume and discard on a daily basis."

Aleksandra Mir: The Concorde CollageAleksandra Mir: The Concorde Collage

Published by Onestar Press/Galerie Laurent Godin.

This artist's book covers a single, hypnotic project by one of this decade's most interesting players, Alekandra Mir, whose work has recently been seen in solo projects with P.S. 1, The Wrong Gallery and Gavin Brown's Enterprise in New York and the ICA Philadelphia to name but a few. As explained in The Believer in 2004, "It's a tragically regressive time we live in. We just grounded the Concorde. Where's the future? We've lost the future…I'm very jealous of an era when people were inventing something as beautiful as the Concorde and thinking, 'That's the next step.' The future isn't as optimistic as it once was, so people don't aestheticize it like they once did. It's not looked at so sanitarily, so neat and clean."
