    Charles Brittin: West and South

    Throughout the 1950s, Charles Brittin was the unofficial house photographer for the Beat community that coalesced around the artist Wallace Berman. Brittin settled in Venice Beach, California, in 1951, and his beach shack became a hangout for the Berman circle, which included actors Dean Stockwell and Dennis Hopper, artist John Altoon, curator Walter Hopps and poet David Meltzer, among many others. A self-taught photographer, Brittin was working as a mailman at the time, and spent much of his free time wandering the streets with a camera; he came to know Venice intimately, and his pictures of the town are freighted with a hushed beauty and forlorn sweetness. In the early 1960s the focus of Brittin's life shifted dramatically when he became . . . . Hbk, 9.5 x 13 in. / 216 pgs / 150 duotone.

    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."

    Hans Ulrich Obrist: Interviews, Volume 2

    Since Hans Ulrich Obrist--museum director, curator, writer, cultural instigator and professional conversationalist--released his bestselling first volume of interviews back in 2004, one wonders if there is a living artist, musician or writer left with whom Obrist hasn't recorded an interview. Happily, of course, there are plenty. Obrist--who was born in Zurich in 1968, and who joined London's Serpentine Gallery as Co-Director of Exhibitions and Programmes and Director of International Projects in 2006--makes it his business to cross paths with the most significant thinkers of our time, from in or outside the artworld. Since 1993, he has conducted literally hundreds of interviews. The 70 published here are taken from an archive containing nearly 2,000 hours of recordings and organized by interviewees' dates . . . .

    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.

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 . . . .

    From 1969 to 1973, a series of radical art projects took place at the far eastern edge of Los Angeles County at the Pomona College Museum of Art, in Claremont, California. 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.

    William Eggleston: From Black and White to Colour

    At the end of the 1950s William Eggleston began to photograph around his home in Memphis using black-and-white 35mm film. Fascinated by the photography of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Eggleston declared at the time: "I couldn't imagine doing anything more than making a perfect fake Cartier-Bresson." Eventually Eggleston developed his own style which later shaped his seminal work in color-an original vision of the American everyday with its icons of banality: supermarkets, diners, service stations, automobiles and ghostly figures lost in space. From Black and White to Color includes some exceptional as-yet-unpublished photographs, and displays the evolution, ruptures and above all the radicalness of Eggleston's work when he began photographing in color at the end of the 1960s. Here we discover similar obsessions . . . . Hbk, 7 x 9.5 in. / 192 pgs / illustrated throughout.

    The George Kuchar Reader

    Despite being a consummate polymath, George Kuchar (1942–2011) is best known as a pioneering underground film and video maker with a disarming do-it-yourself aesthetic and a hilariously eccentric sensibility. Quirky and ingenious, heartfelt and campy, Kuchar’s movies know no boundaries and are an entirely unique development in the history of cinema. The artist’s characteristic instinct for kitsch, his humor and conceptual brilliance, were not confined to the screen alone; they can be glimpsed in all the activities he carried out throughout his life.

It all started when a friend of Fulford's gave him a box, found at a flea market, full of photos of mushrooms—unassuming pictures taken by an unknown but almost certainly amateur photographer, apparently as notes for some mycological studies.

    In the years during and just after World War II, the Danish artist Asger Jorn (1914-73) and the American painter Jackson Pollock (1912-56) came to play major roles in the development of a new Abstract Expressionist art. Both drew on Surrealism and Picasso to explore automatism in painting, each breaking through to a unique style around 1943, when Pollock had his first show at Peggy Guggenheim's gallery, and Jorn established the groundwork for working collectively that would lead to the founding of the CoBrA group. In both cases, this led to an incredibly energetic, primitive-seeming painting (although Jorn retained more figurative elements than Pollock).

    Cézanne is the supreme landscape painter of modernity, and his famous dictum that painting from nature is not copying the object; it is realizing one’s sensations” defines the course of modern painting’s extreme departure from fidelity to reality. Despite or because of this dictum, Cézanne’s marvelously lucid sensations” become all the more evident and dazzling when set against images of the locales he painted. Cézanne: Landscape into Art, which reprises and expands the classic 1996 publication by Yale University Press, does precisely this.
