'Bob & Bob' Launch at ARTBOOK @ Hauser Wirth & Schimmel

Saturday, February 11 at 4PM, ARTBOOK @ Hauser Wirth & Schimmel invites you to a special presentation by legendary LA-based art duo, Bob & Bob, in celebration of their latest project, 40 Months 40 Stories. Introduction will be by Llyn Foulkes and discussion will be moderated by Andrew Berardini. Reception and book signing to follow. Or, preorder here.

'Bob & Bob' Launch at ARTBOOK @ Hauser Wirth & Schimmel

ARTBOOK @ Hauser Wirth & Schimmel invites you to a special presentation and discussion with Bob & Bob for their latest project and book: 40 Months 40 Stories. Llyn Foulkes will introduce his former students and a discussion will follow Bob & Bob's presentation as moderated by Andrew Berardini.

“We had to reunite as Bob & Bob. If there isn’t an Art Team around to save the world, who will?” – Bob & Bob

In times of uncertainty, as our country moves more and more towards a failed, dystopian Hollywood script as its barbaric reality, the need for collective movements, actions, and voices united in civil disobedience and Nietzschean laughter becomes pertinent—whether it be in our tiny sphere of art or beyond. For us, this relief comes in two characters, shrouded in mystery and deluged by the boundaries of art: Bob & Bob.

Artbook @ Hauser Wirth & Schimmel is honored to present this legendary Los Angeles-based art duo Bob & Bob for the bookstore’s continued celebration and thematic focus featuring artist collectives and collaborative pairs. Introduced by their former teacher and long-time friend Llyn Foulkes, Bob & Bob will expand upon their decades-long partnership as an “art team” and discuss what it has meant to work together as a pair in the art world and their recent reunion as Bob & Bob.

Bob & Bob: 40 Months 40 Stories brings forth their latest collaborative project—standing as their most political and sentimental of works to date. The book, dissected into three poignant chapters, chronicles a period of 40 months and 40 stories shared and reminisced by Bob & Bob. Dark Bob and Light Bob, their distinctive aliases, having recently rejoined as partners from their early seventies jaunts from LA art school studios to the plush functionality of a Beverly Hills office, expanding their conjoined experiments of subversive commentary within the genre-blurring and multifaceted modes of art and commerce for almost two consistent decades. In the late eighties, Bob & Bob took a hiatus from the art scene for about a 20-year period, but knowing they would continue working together one day. 40 Months 40 Stories will debut at Artbook @ Hauser Wirth & Schimmel Bookstore and again be prominently featured in Printed Matter’s Classroom series as part of Printed Matter's 2017 LA Art Book Fair. 40 Months 40 Stories features an essay by art critic and writer Andrew Berardini who will be joining ARTBOOK, both on the 11th of February and the 26th at the LAABF, as moderator for a discussion on Bob & Bob’s oeuvre and the trial and tribulations of collaborating in these darker times.

BOB & BOB (Dark Bob and Light Bob) began their art career in 1974 while studying painting at the Art Center College in Los Angeles. For over 10 years they exhibited and performed in multiple mediums across America and abroad. In recent years, their legacy has been honored with inclusions in the Pompidou Centre’s “Los Angeles: Birth of an Art Capital” in 2006 and also in the Getty’s "Pacific Standard Time” initiative in 2011, including the MOCA show “Under the Big Black Sun”. In 2012 Bob & Bob reunited to create “40 Months/40 Stories”, a series of new, often politically-charged, works chronicled in their new book of the same name featuring an essay by Andrew Berardini and a foreword by artist Llyn Foulkes.

LLYN FOULKES (American, born 1934, Yakima, Washington) lives and works in Los Angeles. In 2013-14, the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, organized a major retrospective that traveled to the New Museum in New York and Museum Kurhaus Kleve in Germany. He currently has a solo exhibition in Los Angeles at Sprüth Magers.

ANDREW BERARDINI is a writer living in Los Angeles, who has worked for the Armory Center for the Arts and LAXART as a curator and at Semiotext(e) Press as an editor. He currently holds positions as Los Angeles Editor for the Milan-based bimonthly art magazine Mousse, Contributing Editor at Momus, and Deputy Editor for Artslant. He is also a co-founder and editor at the Art Book Review.

The presentation and discussion will be followed by a reception and book signing of 40 Months 40 Stories, as newly released and published by Bob & Bob's publishing imprint M.I.T.B. Books.
