Chris Ofili: 2000 WordsChris Ofili: 2000 Words

Published by Deste Foundation for Contemporary Art.
Edited by Karen Marta, Massimiliano Gioni. Text by Katherine Brinson.

Since the mid-1990s, Chris Ofili's (born 1968) painstakingly crafted paintings and sculptures have dazzled--and often distressed--viewers with a fusion of opposing forces: sacred meets profane, formal bows to demotic, and exalted bleeds into vulgar. Paintings of rare beauty are propped on elephant dung; deities squat to defecate; and lovers embrace and yet are forcibly bound.
This volume in Deste's 2000 Words series is authored by Katherine Brinson, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, where she curated the museum's 2013 Christopher Wool retrospective and also organizes the Hugo Boss Prize, a biennial award honoring significant achievement in contemporary art.

Chris Ofili: The Blue RiderChris Ofili: The Blue Rider

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Essays by Louis Antwi, Bazon Brock, Carolina Grau and Greg Tate. Introduction by Christoph Zuchlag.

In this oversized darkly serious artist's book, Chris Ofili riffs on Wassily Kandinsky's famous Blue Rider text, collaborating with the spoken-word artist Louis Antwi, who contributes a poem, and including essays by Carolina Grau, Greg Tate and Bazon Brock. Featuring photographs of sculptures and paintings of African Adams and Eves about to be bitten on the ass by coiled serpants, scenes of passionate love, monkeys, invented superheroes, star-crossed lovers and pimps, Ofili presents a dark, snake-infested Eden.
