Published by MIT List Visual Arts Center.
Edited by João Ribas. Foreword by Jane Farver.

Artist and writer Frances Stark (born 1967) addresses the doubts and anxieties of creative labor, in self-portraits that she elaborates into cross-disciplinary explorations of language as both subject matter and material. The digressive style that typifies her writing is echoed in the experience of her installations, in which themes emerge across citations from pop music and literature. Her works, often hand drawn, are executed with a vulnerability and fluency of composition that affirms the volume's title. This anthology offers a selection of the artist's writings from 1997 to 2006.

Frances Stark: A Torment of FolliesFrances Stark: A Torment of Follies

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Text by Martin Prinzhorn.

This exhibition catalogue disguised as an artist's book presents recent work by the Los Angeles artist, writer and all-around favorite, Frances Stark. Taking as her starting point the novel Ferdydurke by the esteemed Polish author Witold Gombrowicz, Stark explores two key aspects of the novel, according to Andras Palffy, President of the esteemed Viennese exhibition space, Secession--"the individual's right to uncertainty or immaturity and all possible forms of masquerade" and "deception towards one's environment." Whereas Gombrowicz took on the sinister political developments of 1930s Poland, Stark aptly and humorously attacks the hierarchies, systems and pigeon holes of the contemporary commercial art world. Of special note are the very effective optical illusions embedded in the images reproduced here.
Frances Stark was born in 1967 in Newport Beach, California. She has had recent one-person exhibitions at Marc Foxx gallery, Los Angeles, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and CRG Gallery, New York.

Frances Stark: The Collected WorksFrances Stark: The Collected Works

Published by Walther König, Köln.

The Los Angeles-based artist and art writer Frances Stark has gathered an international cult following for her prolific prose and her smart, honest and intimate artwork. This engaging artist’s book is conceived as a companion piece to Stark’s Collected Writings 1993–2003, fashioning itself as a graphic counterpart that draws from the artist’s paintings, collages, drawings, videos, poetry and more, from 1993 to the present. Through provocative and diaristic text notes printed alongside Stark’s sometimes humorous, often self-scrutinizing images, Collected Works addresses the paradox of reproducing visual art that is essentially non-photogenic by nature--because of its tactility, detail or scale. The book formally addresses how verbiage flows in and out of the work(s), and leaves no space for the legitimizing language of the critic or curator. Neither a typical catalogue nor monograph, it pushes for a third form, a new art work constructed from existing pieces.
