Lee Lozano: Private Book 2


Spread from 'Lee Lozano: Private Book 2.'

Before her self-imposed exile from the art world, Lee Lozano (1930–99) was a highly regarded painter who defined a generation of American artists infusing conceptualism with a new intensity.

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.
Eleven of these private books survive, containing notes on her work, detailed interactions with artist friends and commentary on the alienations of gender politics, as well as philosophical queries into art’s role in society and humorous asides from daily life.

In the decade before her infamous “dropout piece”—culminating in a move to Dallas where she would remain until her death—Lozano returned to these notebooks, editing the entries, sometimes blacking out entire pages. Private Book 2 is the second in a series of 11 pocket-sized books, which are printed as facsimiles with spiral binding.

A remarkable feat of facsimile publishing: Lee Lozano: Private Book 2

A remarkable feat of facsimile publishing: Lee Lozano: Private Book 2

We see our fair share of classic artist book “facsimile” reprints, and some are better than others. Karma’s newly released edition of Lee Lozano’s second private 3x5 spiralbound notebook of the late 60s / early 70s (part of a series of eleven) is so well made as to be virtually indistinguishable from an original, aside from the lack of effects from aging. Taped-in pages appear to be hand-lettered on both sides; drawings, charts and graphs manage to convey the force of the artist’s imprint; and scribbled-out words add to the overall authenticity. Cigarette consumption, drug trips, conversations with other artists and future ideas are logged with offhand intensity. continue to blog
