Jack Pierson: NightJack Pierson: Night

Published by Kukje Gallery.
Text by Bruce Benderson.

An ode to a bygone era, Jack Pierson: Night is a beautifully designed artist's book that counterposes the artist's signature use of found lettering with found publicity stills of Hollywood movie stars like Tony Curtis, Rock Hudson and Elizabeth Taylor. Pierson makes declarative but ambiguous statements such as "trust," "greed" and "cry," and in this volume, which is designed to evoke the scrapbook in which these headshots were found, his statements deliver an uneasy interpretation of glamour. Printed on heavy paper stock, and accompanying Pierson's 2010 exhibition at Kukje Gallery in Seoul, Night is further embellished with an essay by novelist and memoirist Bruce Benderson. Describing Pierson's conjunction of word and image, Benderson writes: "the mere linking of the two creates a signpost that that stands in a direct way for Pierson's ownership of it... but in this case, the sign says, 'Private property: Come and See.'"

Published by Charta/Irish Museum of Modern Art.
Introduction by Jack Pierson. Text by Enrique Juncosa, Wayne Koestenbaum, Rachael Thomas, Richard D. Marshall.

This publication--at once a daybook, a survey (it accompanies the artist's first exhibition in Ireland) and an artist's book--collects eight previous publications on the American artist Jack Pierson, several of which are long out of print. Pierson was among the first photographers to print pages with the imagery bleeding out of its usual white frame, and to deploy a bleached-out and overexposed style of photography that connotes a longing for a recent but already dimming past, littered with the props and players of yesterday's parties. By small increments, an emotional tone builds that is both warmly homoerotic and unabashedly wistful. All of these books were designed by the artist and are here reproduced in their original size and in chronological order.
Jack Pierson makes photographs, word sculptures, installations, drawings and artist's books that excavate the emotional undercurrents of everyday life, from the intimacy of romantic attachment to the remote idolizing of the famous. Pierson has often engaged celebrity culture, refusing ironic treatment of the subject to instead confess, or seem to confess, his own attraction to the fantasy life depicted in his artworks. He has had recent solo exhibitions at Cheim & Read, New York; Alison Jacques Gallery, London and Regen Projects, Los Angeles. His work is held in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
