Carol Rama: Space Even More than TimeCarol Rama: Space Even More than Time

Published by Lévy Gorvy.
Text by Lia Gangitano, Andrea Bajani.

As a self-taught artist who confidently forged her own path, Rama (1918-2015) pursued an inventive approach to structure and composition, seasoning her art with unconventional media, industrial material, provocative imagery and psychologically charged legends. Accompanying an exhibition at the Archivio Carol Rama at the Palazzo Ca’ nova in Venice, this publication includes full-color illustrations of Rama’s works featured in the show—an unprecedented selection representing the broad range of materials and styles that comprise her iconoclastic oeuvre. The catalog also features newly commissioned texts by curator and founder of Participant, Inc. Lia Gangitano and Turin-based novelist Andrea Bajani, as well as an introduction by Maria Cristina Mundici and Raffaella Roddolo of the Archivio Carol Rama.

Carol Rama: AntibodiesCarol Rama: Antibodies

Published by New Museum.
Edited by Massimiliano Gioni, Helga Christoffersen. Text by Sarah Lehrer-Graiwer. Interview by Lea Vergine. Contributions by Danh Vő.

While Carol Rama (1918–2015) has been largely overlooked in contemporary art discourses, her work has proven prescient and influential for many artists working today, attaining cult status and attracting renewed interest.

Rama’s exhibition at the New Museum brings together over 150 of her paintings, objects and works on paper, highlighting her consistent fascination with the representation of the body. This book celebrates the independence and eccentricity of this legendary artist whose work spanned half a century of contemporary art history and anticipated debates on sexuality, gender and representation. Encompassing her entire career, it traces the development from her early erotic, harrowing depictions of “bodies without organs” through later works that invoke innards, fluids and limbs. This catalog accompanying her New Museum exhibition features an interview with the artist by Lea Vergine, a new text by writer Sarah Lehrer-Graiwer, and a contribution by artist Danh Vő.

The Passion According to Carol RamaThe Passion According to Carol Rama

Published by Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona.
Edited with text by Paul B. Preciado, Anne Dressen, Teresa Grandas. Text by Lea Vergine, Pierre Bal-Blanc, Jack Halbertam, Ariana Reines, Elisabeth Lebovici, Pedro G. Romero, Maurizio Cattelan, Catherine Lord, Le Tigre, Luigi Ontani, Andrea Viliani, Mai-Thu Perret, Alexandra Wetzel, Bettina M. Busse, Melissa Logan, Alexandra Murray-Leslie, Valentín Roma, Maria Cristina Mundici, Corrado Levi, Filippo Fossati.

Ignored for decades by official art-history discourses, Italian Carol Rama (1918-2006) can be considered today to be one of the essential artists for understanding 20th-century production. Through a selection of 120 works--mostly paintings--and essays by Paul B. Preciado, Anne Dressen and Teresa Grandas, in addition to the contributions of a selection of artists, writers and musicians, this clothbound volume proposes an attempt to recognize and restore a life's work--one markedly feminine and sexualized--still unknown but nevertheless slated to become classic.
This publication aims not only to explore the art of Carol Rama, but also to challenge the dominant narratives of art history through work that requires us to undo narratives and reformulate concepts. Almost forgotten by art history and the feminist movement, the work of Rama, stretching over seven decades, constitutes an anti-archive allowing a reconstruction of the avant-garde movements of the 20th century.

Carol Rama: AppassionataCarol Rama: Appassionata

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Essays by Silvia Eiblmayr, Brigitte Reinhardt, Lea Vergine, and Edoardo Sanguineti.

Appassionata offers a compelling cross-section of Carol Rama's lifetime of work. Early on, she combined the surreal and the erotic in her watercolors and drawings. Delicately rendered, they show fragmented, injured female bodies, male figures charged with sexual symbolism, as well as objects like artificial limbs, shoes and animals. Born in 1918 in Turin, Rama took up her radical and taboo-breaking position as early as 1936, anticipating positions on the body and sexuality that became prevalent only in the 1960s and 1970s. During the 1950s, Rama addressed abstraction, increasingly incorporating body-related materials like animal claws, doll's eyes or bicycle inner tubes. In the early 1980s, she returned to her earlier erotic subjects, to which she remains devoted. Into them she now also includes scenes of everyday life and mythological figures, often depicted ironically. Apart from a wonderful overview of Rama's work, this publication also sheds light on her lifelong artistic involvement with the poet Edoardo Sanguineti.
