Featured spreads—showing "Econ Prof" (2019), "Econ Prof" as art directed for Artforum ad and "Nice Smell Babe" (1993) by Nicole Eisenman and "Poppy Squirt" (2019) by Keith Boadwee (clockwise from top left), are from Nicole Eisenman: Sturm und Drang, the long-awaited and gorgeously-produced double exhibition catalog published to accompany the artist's recent show at The Contemporary Austin and her current show with Keith Boadwee at The FLAG Art Foundation—closing March 13. This book is packed with so many great works of art and so many interesting essays, statements and conversations that it's hard to pick just one. The conclusion to Eisenman's essay on Boadwee is pretty great, though, and seems to represent the spirit of both artists. "Wait, did I mention that Boadwee is hilarious and uncompromising as he takes apart notions of taste and the giant lie of so-called civility? This work is also about the pure joy of uninhabited expressive creativity coming from the place of radical queerness and sexual liberty. Yes, of course, it’s joyous, he’s saying “Fuck you!” to everything that binds us into place. Such as, for example, sexual prohibitions and inhibitions and any kind of role we get stuck playing that is hoisted upon us by a moral value system that is not our own. You can walk around squirting sunflowers out of your ass in Boadwee’s universe and the sun will bless the tip of your erect dick all the day long. As it should be."
