Spring 2016 New Titles: A Sneak Peak
Dear Friends and Readers,

If your home is where your books are, then, like me, you probably anticipate each new publisher catalogue as a tasting menu of possible futures. The pages I dog-ear in book catalogues are wishes for my future self, a map of the intellectual roads I want to travel in pursuit of who I want to be a year hence. Over decades, a personal library takes shape of books read and unread: the desired biography of an ego.

My bookshelves are not yet full, and there is always room for a book I didn't know I needed. This season that book is Rosalyn Drexler: Who Does She Think She Is? Dating from 1963, Drexler's Lovers is reproduced on the cover of this ARTBOOK | D.A.P. Spring 2016 Catalogue. Prefiguring the work of Pictures Generation artists such as Robert Longo and Cindy Sherman a quarter of a century later, Drexler decenters, displaces, and reframes media iconography of gender stereotypes by slyly placing her stylized, almost cartoonish scenes at the edges of the canvas, so that the figures are literally marginalized. Like film frames that have gotten stuck askew in the projector, Drexler's scenes have fallen out of synch with the master narrative, which now sounds hollow. In a new book forthcoming from Gregory Miller & Co. this spring, Drexler's work will finally be available in a full-scale monograph reproducing a comprehensive selection of collages, paintings, and sculpture alongside documentation of her work in other media.

Other new books I absolutely must add to my shelves this year are the hardcover catalogue for MoMA's Marcel Broodthaers exhibition; Carrie Mae Weems: Kitchen Table Series from Damiani; Inventory Press' facsimile edition of the 1970s manifesto on radical pedagogy, Blueprint for Counter Education; Steidl's complete edition of Robert Frank's film work; Aperture's Gregory Crewdson: Cathedral of the Pines; and the new paperback edition of Wolfgang Scheppe's Migropolis: Venice from Hatje Cantz.

My library is my biography, so now you know a little bit about me.

And which books will you choose? Who do you want to be a year hence? If you invite me to dinner next year, who will your library tell me you are?
