    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.

    Jim Shaw: My Mirage

    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.

    The Digital Wunderkammer

    10 Chapters on the Iconic Turn

    As digital technology advances at breakneck speed, Images are circulating quicker than ever before. But what is the status of the image in the digital era? In The Digital Wunderkammer, art historian Hubert Burda (born 1940) examines the "iconic turn" in ten themed chapters and conversations with leading cultural theorists. In the first chapter, "The View Through the Window," Burda traces the connection between perspectival painting and the television, demonstrating in the second chapter how the image requires a frame, which in turn requires a material vehicle--the topic of the third chapter--that in our era has become a non-material vehicle with its own formal parameters. In the fourth chapter, "The Mobile Image," Burda shows how images have always been linked to . . . . Hbk, 8.25 x 11.75 in. / 202 pgs / 58 color / 16 b&w.

    Masterworks: Rare and Beautiful Chess Sets of the World

    The world's most gorgeous and unusual chess sets, spanning hundreds of years and five continents
    Chess, one of the world’s most popular games, has inspired artists for hundreds of years. Though apparently offering a limited canvas—each set has 32 pieces, each board 64 squares—sets have nevertheless been designed in countless ways, using almost every imaginable material, from precious metals, to ivory and rock crystal. They have taken many forms, from figural to abstract, and used many diverse themes, from the historical and political to the beauty and variety of the animal kingdom.
    This book brings together some of the most beautiful and unusual chess sets ever made. Spanning hundreds of years and five continents, they are culled from private collections and museums, and . . . . Hbk, 8 x 10.5 in. / 232 pgs / 156 color.

    Striking Patterns

    Global Traces in Local Ikat Fashion

    Ikat refers to the originally Indonesian art and technique in which warp or weft threads, or both, are tie-dyed before weaving the fabric, creating complex patterns on handwoven textiles. Since time immemorial, master weavers in eastern Indonesia and Timor-Leste have embraced ideas and motifs from elsewhere and integrated them in their own designs. Striking Patterns takes readers into the world of a handicraft that is beloved of both laypeople and experts.
    Ikat is practiced primarily in Indonesia, India, and Central and South America, and its techniques have continuously developed over the course of centuries. Foreign influences were absorbed and creatively integrated into local patterns. The main objects of research in this volume are works by female master weavers from eastern Indonesia and . . . .

A prolific writer and documenter of both her art and her relationships, the public and private, Lozano kept a series of personal journals from 1968 to 1972 while living in New York’s SoHo neighborhood.

    Adam Golfer: A House Without a Roof

    Shortlisted for the Paris-Photo/ Aperture First Book Award, A House Without a Roof considers the overlapping histories of violence and displacement connecting Europe, Israel and Palestine. With photographs, archival imagery and original texts, Brooklyn-based artist Adam Golfer weaves together fictions of his family history with representations from Israel’s founding and ongoing military occupation. Ethnic and national identities are ruptured and reassembled as he interrogates contradictory histories and notions of selfhood, exploring strands that connect the Jewish Diaspora out of Europe and forced mass migrations from Palestine following World War II. Golfer situates this inquiry through the triangular relationship between his grandfather (a survivor of Dachau), his father (who lived on a kibbutz in the early 1970s) and himself.

    Over the past few years, Los Angeles–based painter Kent Williams (born 1962) has created multiple interpretations of the well-known artist Soey Milk, which this volume gathers and celebrates in gorgeous color plates. Williams' style is exacting and sensual; his depictions of Milk range from scenes of her semi-nude figure entwined in foliage or lively whorls of paint to depictions of her reclining, stretching, undressing or posing with other figures. As Ryan Ebelt writes in his essay for the volume, the works, made between 2012 and 2016, stand undeniably as a celebration of Soey Milk and the inspiration she has manifested, and stands as both a stimulating entry into Williams’ considerable oeuvre as well as a scintillating slice of the inspiration of . . . .

Essays explore the conceptual, historical and aesthetic concerns that have driven Dickey’s practice for three decades: her ongoing study of pattern and decoration, interest in landscape design and the history of the garden, feminist politics and references to various historical art styles and schools, ranging from medieval tapestry to Minimalist sculpture. Words Are Leaves illustrates how Dickey’s reconsideration of craft and pattern brings the decorative to the fore, and to life.

    Jimmy Wright: Bathhouse, Meatpacking District and the Dream Cards

    New York Underground 1973–1990

    Bathhouse, Meatpacking District and the Dream Cards presents a selection of drawings from the 1970s by Jimmy Wright (born 1944).
