    Doug Aitken: The Idea of the West

    Sunsets over the Pacific. "Surfers." "Movie stars." "Coyotes in the street." "Sex." Doug Aitken's The Idea of the West gathers the responses of 1,000 people on the streets who were asked "What is your idea of the West?" and assembles this amazing manifesto from their replies. Through an assortment of more than 200 color and black-and-white images juxtaposed with responses to this question, The Idea of the West takes the reader on a high-speed journey across space and time to trace the mythology of the New West. The volume also features conversational fragments by a host of creators based in the Pacific region, including Devendra Banhart, Bruce Brown, Charles Burnett, Exene Cervenka, Fallen Fruit, Simone Forti, Fritz Haeg, Miranda July, No . . . .

    Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian: Cosmic Geometry

    Born in 1924 in the ancient Persian city of Qazvin, Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian spent her childhood in a grand old house replete with stained glass, wall paintings and nightingales. Coming of age during World War II, she left occupied Iran and audaciously set out for New York, where she was quickly absorbed into the city's thriving avant garde. In the decades to follow, during successive exiles in Tehran and New York, Farmanfarmaian developed an intuitive yet painstakingly crafted artistic practice in mirror mosaic and reverse-painted glass that weds the cosmic patterning of her Iranian heritage with the rhythms of modern Western geometric abstraction. This book is the first substantial survey of Farmanfarmaian's acclaimed geometric works, and features an in-depth interview by . . . . Hbk, 9.75 x 11.75 in. / 256 pgs / illustrated throughout.

    Mark Bradford: Merchant Posters

    This book gathers for the first time an extensive selection of American artist—or builder and demolisher,” as he describes himself—Mark Bradford's gorgeous, searing and heavily textured merchant posters.” The original printed posters, collected by Bradford from around his Central Los Angeles neighborhood, are brightly colored local advertisements that target the area's vulnerable lower-income residents. For Bradford, they serve as both the formal and conceptual underpinnings of his works on paper, décollages/collages that engage with the pressures of the cityscape. The sheer density of advertising creates a psychic mass, an overlay that can sometimes be very tense or aggressive,” he notes; If there's a 20-foot wall with one advertisement for a movie about war, then you have the repetition of the same . . . .

    How to Do Things with Art

    The Meaning of Art's Performativity

    Art has never been as culturally and economically prominent as it is today. How can artists themselves shape the social relevance and impact of their work? In How to Do Things with Art, German art historian Dorothea von Hantelmann uses four case study artists--Daniel Buren, James Coleman, Jeff Koons and Tino Sehgal--to examine how an artwork acts upon and within social conventions, particularly through the "performing" of exhibitions. The book's title is a play on J.L. Austin's seminal text, How to Do Things with Words, which describes language's reality-producing properties and demonstrates that in "saying" there is always a "doing"--a linguistic counterpart to the dynamics envisioned by Von Hantelmann for art, in which "showing" is a kind of "doing."

    Bruce Nauman: Live or Die

    Collector's Choice Vol. 10

    Some forty-odd years after Bruce Nauman began tweaking the conventions of studio practice and the hallowed persona of the 'artist-as-seer,' Pamela M. Lee wrote in Artforum not long ago, "his station in postwar art history rests secure. His influence--whether through his affectless, task-based performances, his sculptural castings of negative space, or his intermedia mash-ups of language, video and noise--is everywhere apparent in contemporary art." Indeed, from the American artist's early work in sculpture and video, made in the 1960s, through his famous spiral of neon letters spelling out "the true artist helps the world by revealing mystic truths," which at once summarized and opened to critique the perennial mystique of the artist, up through his three-venue Golden Lion Award-winning exhibition at . . . .

    Return of the Repressed: Destroy All Monsters 1974-1977

    The influential Detroit anti-rock” group Destroy All Monsters (Mike Kelley, Cary Loren, Niagara, Jim Shaw) made raucous music, irreverent art and legendary zines, performing and disseminating their activities through an elaborate self-mythology. The Destroy All Monsters zines have been reprinted in facsimile editions, but the art objects made by the members have never been examined as independent works. Return of the Repressed: Destroy All Monsters 1974–1977 is the first retrospective of the artwork itself, as well as a DAM overview. Produced in collaboration with the artists, it collects the work of the collective between circa 1974–1977, almost all of which is previously unpublished.

    Lawrence Weiner: After Fine Art, Nach Bildende Kunst

    One of Conceptual art’s most popular and iconic protagonists, Lawrence Weiner (born 1942) has stood as a pioneer for practitioners of language-based art for the last 40 years. His philosophical aphorisms, poetical declarations, idle observations and casual musings, and his appropriation of the art catalogue as artist’s book, have proved enduringly influential strategies. About 300 of Weiner’s works--whose total oeuvre to date comprises more than 1,000 works--have been presented only in German, in the German-speaking world (either translated by Weiner himself or conceived by him in German). Featuring over 800 pieces, this volume is the first catalogue raisonné of those works. As always, Weiner has assumed responsibility for the book’s typography and design.

    Doug Aitken’s Black Mirror is a meditation on the rootlessness and the extreme virtuality of contemporary existence. Comprised of a site-specific multi-channel video installation and a live theater performance at the Deste Foundation Project Space, Slaughterhouse, on the Greek island of Hydra, it stars Chloë Sevigny as a nomadic individual traversing airport terminals, hotel lobbies and car rental kiosks, communicating in quick pulses and travelling long distances for short meetings. The video installation was shot in and around Athens and Hydra, as well as Cancun, Mexico; Albuquerque and Gallup, New Mexico; Flagstaff and Arcosanti, Arizona; and Palm Springs, California. The performance was staged on a barge off Athens, and featured Sevigny, gospel singers, strippers and musicians, Los Angeles underground rock duo . . . .

    A bricoleur of uniquely American utopian/dystopian cosmologies, Jim Shaw (born 1952) weds themes from American religious history with motifs from 1960s and 70s counterculture, often coining rubrics--such as his invented religion of O--or series under which to unify these narratives. My Mirage is Shaw's earliest sequence of this kind. Conceived between 1986 and 1991, arranged in chapters and constituted of nearly 170 works--drawn, silk-screened, photographed, sculpted, filmed or painted in a different style--My Mirage recounts the wanderings of Billy, a white, middle-class American sucked into the whirlwind of the 1960s and 70s counterculture. An anxious and withdrawn youth consumed by psychotic hallucinations, Billy joins a psychedelic pagan cult, eventually and inevitably returning to the religion of his youth, reborn” as a . . . .

Here, Hal Glicksman, a pioneering curator in Light and Space art and former assistant to Walter Hopps, and Helene Winer, later the director of Artists Space and founder of Metro Pictures gallery in New York, curated landmark exhibitions by young local artists who bridged the gap between postminimalism and Conceptual art and presaged the development of postminimalism in the late 1970s.

    This is Arthur Elgort's first comprehensive book, showing his world-renowned fashion imagery alongside his personal work. The Big Picture spans Elgort's five-decade career and illustrates his longevity as an emulated fashion photographer. His lively and casual shooting style is significantly influenced by a lifelong love of music and dance, particularly jazz and ballet. Elgort's 1971 debut in British Vogue created a sensation in the fashion world where his soon-to-be iconic "snapshot" style and emphasis on movement and natural light transcended norms of fashion photography. Elgort subsequently rose to fame working for such distinguished magazines as American, French and Italian Vogue, Interview, GQ, Life and Rolling Stone and shooting advertising campaigns for fashion labels including Chanel, Valentino and Yves Saint Laurent. . . . .

    Man Ray: Human Equations

    Man Ray's Shakespearean Equations—a series of paintings he considered to be the pinnacle of his creative vision—has long been a puzzle of Surrealism. What meaningful common thread could possibly link Shakespeare, mathematics and art? This volume sets out to unravel the puzzle by beginning with photographs of mathematical models that Man Ray took at the Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris in the 1930s. It then charts the artist's development along a path that culminates with the Shakespearean Equations, a series of oil paintings he made in Hollywood more than a decade later, inspired by that earlier photographic work. The canvases build a bridge from painting back to photography and reveal the ease with which Man Ray moved between various disciplines and . . . . Hbk, 9 x 9.75 in. / 232 pgs / 150 color.

    Dorothy Iannone: Censorship and the Irrepressible Drive Toward Love and Divinity

    Since the early 1960s, Dorothy Iannone (born 1933) has occupied herself with the attempt to represent "ecstatic unity"—"the union of gender, feeling and pleasure," as she describes it—resulting in a body of frequently autobiographical work encompassing painting, drawing, collage, objects and publications. This volume examines the censorship of Iannone's work, using her 1970 artist's book The Story of Bern as a starting point. Iannone's works were removed from an exhibition at Kunsthalle Bern in 1969, after the museum director demanded that the genitals in her paintings be covered. Iannone responded with The Story of Bern, reclaiming her work from the controversies surrounding it by making her perspective public.

    Fanny is an extended portrait of a young girl's transition from child to woman. Made over a period of 23 years, the images are at once beautiful in their detail of light and identity, as well as frankly anthropological in their descriptive effect. A naturist since birth, Fanny's comfort with nudity and her natural self has allowed Sturges to draw an engaging portrait of the evolution of a human being with few social distractions. His access to the girl's and woman's character is direct and fascinating. Long known for his extended portraits of children and adolescents, this book is strong evidence of Sturges' permanent commitment to the people in his work. . . . . Clth

    Vern Blosum does not exist. The story can be told simply: in 1961 an artist paints five canvases inspired by pages in a horticulture book; then came parking meters, water hydrants, and animals. Some of them were shown at Leo Castelli Gallery, sold to collectors and public institutions, included in seminal exhibitions or books on Pop art—a seemingly normal progression in an artist's career, were it not for a rumor that emerged regarding his true identity. Alfred H. Barr, the legendary director of MoMA, started to worry about the rumor sometime in 1964 and, after extensive inquiries, came to the conclusion that Vern Blosum did not exist.

    Museums of contemporary art are expanding and in crisis. They attract ever-larger audiences; architects constantly redesign them; and the ever-swellling ranks of artists are producing a greater quantity of art than ever before. Meanwhile, museum funds are dwindling amid economic crisis and an overheated art market. The question of which art is to be collected has also become a more openly discussed topic. How do curators meet these challenges? How do artists view their relationships to museum? How do practitioners navigate between ideas, ideals and realities?

    Emil Nolde: Landscapes

    The austere north German landscape—its flat horizons and soaring, dramatic skies crowded with dark clouds—played a central role in the work and imaginary of Emil Nolde (1867–1956). Growing up near the North Sea in the German-Danish border region, Nolde observed the meeting of sky, land and water in vast, unbroken stretches. "The landscape of my youth was like a fairytale to me," he wrote. "My parental home in the flat country, the skylarks swooping joyfully through the air above, my wonderland from sea to sea…" Years after he had left his native region, these brooding landscapes continued to appear in his work, their simplified shapes rendered in Nolde's characteristic brilliant color palette and depicted from extreme distances.

    Sturtevant: Drawing Double Reversal

    Over the course of a half-century, Sturtevant (1924–2014) developed what is perhaps the most radical oeuvre of her generation. Concerned more with changing mental attitudes than with the reception of her art, she provoked the art world and the individual spectator by repeating the original works of contemporary artists. Astonishingly soon after the "originals" were made, she used them as source and catalyst, her intention being to, as she said, "expand and develop our current notions of aesthetics, probe originality and investigate the relation of origins to originality and open space for new thinking." She is most famous for these repetitions, but her early drawings, particularly the so-called "composite drawings" of the 1960s, also provide important clues for understanding the artist's . . . .

    Jens Hoffmann: (Curating) From A to Z

    (Curating) From A to Z offers a summary of the development of curatorial practice over the last two decades, seen through the eyes of curator, author and Deputy Director of the Jewish Museum, Jens Hoffmann (born 1974). In this new publication, each letter of the alphabet evokes a particular word related to the world of exhibition making--from A (as in Artist) and B (as in Biennial) to R (as in Retrospective) and W (as in White Cube). Employing a diaristic style, the curator presents his personal curatorial alphabet with a similar transparency and the same idiosyncratic character revealed in many of his exhibitions. The entries are not only stimulating and intellectually rigorous, but also emotionally engaging. . . . . Pbk, 4 x 6.5 in. / 64 pgs / 23 color / 3 b&w.

    By Jens Hoffmann. Text by Claire Fontaine.

    Richard Serra

    This publication accompanies Richard Serra's (born 1938) pair of exhibitions in Qatar in 2014, at the QMA Gallery at Katara and the Alriwaq Doha exhibition space, as well as his permanent installations 7 and East-West/West-East, both commissioned by the Qatar Museums Authority. Instead of retracing Serra's career chronologically, as is usual in the artist's exhibition catalogues, this book comprises eight thematic chapters that do not aim to investigate all of his work. Rather, this organization facilitates a closer examination of the development of specific bodies of work and thereby a fresh understanding of Serra's overall oeuvre. Each chapter is built around the works shown at the QMA Gallery and Alriwaq Doha, as well as 7, installed in MIA Park in Doha . . . . Hbk, 9.5 x 12 in. / 296 pgs / illustrated throughout.

    Edited with text by Alfred Pacquement.

    Tomma Abts: Mainly Drawings

    German artist Tomma Abts (born 1967) creates her paintings and drawings using a rigorous process that combines the rational with the intuitive. Starting with no external source material and no preconceived idea of the final result, Abts makes complex abstract compositions that ultimately take as their subject the process of their own creation. This publication accompanies her exhibition at the Aspen Art Museum, which is the first to survey the artist's extensive drawing practice. It features 41 works from 1996 to the present—many never before exhibited—and includes new works created specifically for the exhibition. The catalogue also features essays by Bob Nickas, Katy Siegel and Heidi Zuckerman. . . . . Pbk, 7.5 x 10.5 in. / 108 pgs / 60 color.

    Text by Bob Nickas, Katy Siegel, Heidi Zuckerman.
