Jack Pierson: Tomorrow's Man 3Jack Pierson: Tomorrow's Man 3

Published by Bywater Bros. Editions.
Edited by Jack Pierson, Roger Bywater. Text by Veralyn Behenna.

This book is the third volume in Jack Pierson’s (born 1960) Tomorrow’s Man series, in which the artist has assembled an art-fueled creative collaboration that harkens back to the 13 volumes of The Yellow Book published between 1894 and 1897. Whereas the first two volumes implied an increasing density of layered imagery and included over 25 artists, Tomorrow’s Man 3 foregrounds the work of just four artists. Featured here amid erotic images of male nudes are Richard Tinkler’s delicate geometric abstractions, working in concert with Pierson’s recent series of figure studies; activist text works by Peter Fend that demand environmental justice; and a short story by Veralyn Behenna entitled “The Flavor of Your Wish,” in which an expatriate woman contemplates masculine beauty in a Greek taverna. This is the first time Tomorrow’s Man has included previously unpublished work by Pierson. The book is available in four different covers.

Jack Pierson: Tomorrow's Man 2Jack Pierson: Tomorrow's Man 2

Published by Bywater Bros. Editions.
Edited by Roger Bywater, Jack Pierson. Text by Veralyn Behenna.

The title of Jack Pierson's most recent print exploration comes from an infamous bodybuilding magazine from the 1950s and 60s. Appropriating both the title and its retro bodybuilding aesthetic, Pierson takes viewers on a dizzying visual journey encompassing a wide spectrum of cultural references. Combining archival material with contributions from artists, illustrators and one writer, Tomorrow's Man 2 is a psychedelic meditation on masculinity. Highlights include sci-fi-imbued illustrations from Mel Odom, surreal assemblages from Tibi Tibi Neuspiel and geometric abstractions from Richard Tinkler. Also included are works from Dennis Balk, David Carrino, Alejandro Cesarco, David Colman, Pat de Groot, Jeff Elrod, Alex Jovanovich, Elizabeth Kley, Paulo Montiero, Dan McCarthy, OM from India and Evan Whale. Pierson does away with the conventions of the photobook genre, arranging this scrapbook with his signature irreverence and curatorial quirk.

Tomorrow's Man

Published by Presentation House Gallery & Bywater Bros. Editions.
Edited by Jack Pierson, Roger Bywater. Text by Veralyn Behenna.

Tomorrow’s Man, Lynn Valley 9, combines familiar imagery from American photographer Jack Pierson’s (born 1960) vast archive--portraits, vintage Physique magazines, celebrity promo shots and oddball ephemera--with work from an eclectic range of contributors such as Andy Warhol, Mark Morrisroe, David Carrino, Florence Derive, Alex Jovanovich, Dan McCarthy, Ryan Sullivan, Evan Whale, Jeff Elrod, Hugo Guinness, Jimmy Paul, Channing Tatum, Richard Tinkler and others, as well as a short story by Veralyn Behenna entitled “The Lobster.” Utilizing an unconventional design layout in which imagery has been dropped in with a complete disregard for page breaks and centerfolds, this compendium quickly establishes itself as something other than a straightforward photo book: its scrapbook-style design and diverse imagery presents Pierson as an inventive, irreverent editor and bookmaker with a great eye for unexpected, fun juxtapositions.

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.
