An image for grieving, and for dreaming

Featured image, titled “Carretera 82, de Abbeyville a Intracostal City, Louisiana” (1997), is reproduced from Graciela Iturbide: Heliotropo 37, published by Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain. Iturbide began photographing birds after the death of her daughter in 1970. “Everything in life is connected,” she said: “your pain and your imagination, which can help you to forget reality. What you are living is connected to what you dream about, and what you dream about is connected to what you do, and photographs remain lasting reminders of this.”

As border crossings soar, we’re looking at ‘Zoe Leonard: Al río / To the River’

Featured image is reproduced from Zoe Leonard’s two-volume, 592-page project documenting the one-thousand-mile-plus river boundary shared by the United States and Mexico. Featuring 350 reproductions and an anthology of writings by a wealth of international artists, journalists, poets and scholars, this publication presents a multifaceted portrait of the highly politicized and deeply symbolic border-river known as the Río Bravo in Mexico and the Rio Grande in the United States. Underneath all of its fraught history, C.J. Alvarez concludes in his opening essay, “the river has not yet been robbed of all its mystery, nor of its power. Like all civilizations, ours too will someday decline or become something else. The border will not be there forever. Perhaps new volcanos will erupt and reshape the watershed once again. Maybe some future generation will start a process of unbuilding. Possibly the places we know today as the ‘United States’ and ‘Mexico’ will erode into some new type of polity. When I imagine a time in the distant future, when all of us are long gone, I take comfort in picturing the river once again running great and wild.”

Art lovers and mycologists rejoice! 'John Cage: A Mycological Foray' is back in stock.

Art lovers and mycologists rejoice! 'John Cage: A Mycological Foray' is back in stock.

Featured spreads are reproduced from bookseller favorite John Cage: A Mycological Foray—Variations on Mushrooms, the drop-dead gorgeous, slipcased, two-volume set published by Atelier Éditions. "I have come to the conclusion that much can be learned about music by devoting oneself to the mushroom," Cage writes in Music Lovers' Field Companion, reproduced in the book alongside other writings and a wealth of mushroom-themed compositions by Cage, photographs, illustrations, ephemera and a second volume reproducing Cage’s 1972 portfolio, Mushroom Book. "For this purpose, I have recently moved to the country," Cage continues. "Much of my time is spent poring over 'field companions' on fungi. These I obtain at half price in second-hand bookshops, which later are in some rare cases next door to shops selling dog-eared sheets of music, such an occurrence being greeted by me as irrefutable evidence that I am on the right track."
