Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Tone Hansen, Milena Hoegsberg.

Josef Albers: No Tricks, No Twinkling of the Eyes presents a reading of Albers' artistic and pedagogic legacy through the lens of contemporary artists, writers and art historians. Selections from Albers' own writings, including classic texts such as "On My Painting," "Color" and "On My Homage to the Square," mingle with essays by well-known Albers scholars Nicholas Fox Weber ("Minimal Means, Maximum Effect") and Jeannette Redensek ("On Josef Albers' Painting Materials and Techniques"); meditations by Norwegian artist Dag Erik Elgin ("Preparing for Painting to Happen"), Eva Diaz ("Jailbreaking Geometric Abstraction") and Doug Ashford ("Dear Josef"); and a collage sequence by Andrea Geyer that pays homage to Albers' prints. A wealth of color reproductions of Albers' paintings, prints and furniture are dispersed throughout the book. The design of this handsome, clothbound volume, by Jeanne Betak, draws on Albers' own typography and design sensibility.

Dan Walsh: PaintingsDan Walsh: Paintings

Published by Paula Cooper Gallery, New York/Galerie Xippas, Paris.
Text by Bob Nickas, Eric de Chassey, Stephen Ellis.

The New York Times' Roberta Smith described Dan Walsh's paintings thus: "The obvious historical precedents of these canvases include Minimal art's grids and stripes, Color Field painting's stained-canvas punch and Josef Albers' chromatic intelligence jazzed toward Op. But Mr. Walsh's fusion of them is surprisingly organic and present. It is grounded in a slightly muted though still vivid palette, a distinctive sense of proportion and a penchant for compositions--especially grids--built from large expanses, little squares, lines and stripes of layered, contrasting colors. Everything is softened by the vagaries of the hand... The result is choral. No element functions independently; each modulates the others. Mr. Walsh paints with a directness similar to Agnes Martin's, but gives himself more to do." Featuring more than 70 color reproductions of paintings and installation views demonstrating Walsh's at once programmatic and playful approach to abstract painting, this first comprehensive overview spans the last 15 years and includes contributions by Stephen Ellis, Eric de Chassey and Bob Nickas.

Carl Andre: PoemsCarl Andre: Poems

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Lynn Kost. Text by Gavin Delahunty, Lynn Kost, Valérie Mavridorakis.

Carl Andre (born 1935) was a poet before he was an artist, and between 1960 and 1965 he produced a substantial body of innovative visual poetry. Arranging language on paper as carefully and as sculpturally as he was later to arrange pieces of metal or bricks on the floor, Andre approached words as adjustable entities, to be moved around within the limits of the space of the sheet of paper. These works, made during the height of the international Concrete poetry movement, appeared alongside his sculptures in exhibitions and were excerpted in scholarly writings about the artist. With this volume, Andre’s influential poetic oeuvre is now gathered comprehensively for the first time. The poems, which were often typed on 8 x 11 paper, are reproduced in quasi-facsimile, to convey Andre’s sculptural intentions. Also included are essays by art historians Gavin Delahunty and Valérie Mavridorakis, and curator Lynn Kost.

Sol LeWitt: The Well-Tempered GridSol LeWitt: The Well-Tempered Grid

Published by Williams College Museum of Art.
Edited by Charles W. Haxthausen. Text by Charles W. Haxthausen, Christianna Bonin, Erica DiBenedetto.

Sol LeWitt: The Well-Tempered Grid is the first exhibition to focus on the centrality of the grid in LeWitt’s art. The exhibition focuses on LeWitt’s use of the grid as a generative matrix for his artistic production over the span of nearly five decades, from 1960 until his death in 2007. Inspired by his first encounter with the work of photographer Eadweard Muybridge in the late 1950s, LeWitt began experimenting with a loosely structured grid in several large oil paintings of 1960, based on the Muybridge motif of a running man. By 1962 he had simplified his use of this format to exclude figurative elements, and by 1964 he was making his first wall-mounted grid structures. When LeWitt made his first wall drawings in 1968 he used the grid as the underlying structural principle. Thereafter, grids became a pervasive matrix in all of the media in which LeWitt worked--three-dimensional “structures,” drawings and gouaches on paper, photographic cycles, artist’s books, furniture and wall drawings. Fully illustrated with 95 color images (and a plate section), the book includes three essays, including Charles W. Haxthausen on LeWitt’s relationship to the grid and classical music, especially Bach; Christianna Bonin on LeWitt’s relationship to Richard Serra and the wall drawing; and Erica DiBenedetto on LeWitt’s 1980 artist’s book, Autobiography, a publication consisting solely of 1,101 photographs of LeWitt’s New York studio, organized over 128 pages in nine-part grids.

Agnes Martin & Richard Tuttle: Religion of LoveAgnes Martin & Richard Tuttle: Religion of Love

Published by Walther König, Köln.

Agnes Martin (1912–2004) wrote Religion of Love, a late statement on her work and thought, sometime in the 1990s. Composed of short, aphoristic statements and paragraphs, it lucidly states her art credo and life advice: "Love makes us want to do all the good things. Get up in the morning and work for life." "The part of the mind that's aware of perfection tells us everything that is good." "You can contact the mind by asking for help." Somewhat uncharacteristically, Martin asked her friend Richard Tuttle to illustrate it. As Tuttle writes in his introduction, "on the one hand, it reconfirms her most classical thought (Beauty is the mystery of life), and, on the other, adds new thought with an urgency only found in a mature artist of her age and persuasion." This beautiful, slim volume constitutes both an important artist's statement and a great collaboration.

Matthew Monahan: Square GardenMatthew Monahan: Square Garden

Published by UCCA/Koenig Books.
Edited by Karen Marta, Brian Roettinger.

For Square Garden, Matthew Monahan (born 1972) reproduces a series of 30 six-foot drawings which seem to continuously resurface, as if the reader is navigating through an unfurling labyrinth where images rise and fall like the monuments of a fictional empire. Made from carbon paper folded into rice paper to create a series of overlapping Rorschachs, the simple drawings of figures, building materials and decorative motifs come to resemble architectural plans, disaster diagrams, exercise manuals and war games. A kaleidoscope-esque experience, Square Garden was inspired by the artist's 2002-2003 experience of Chinese traditional architecture and garden design, as well as the contemporary urban landscape. Following in the great artist book tradition of John Baldessari and Edward Ruscha, the UCCA has called on Matthew Monahan along with LA artists Kathryn Andrews, Aaron Curry, Alex Israel, Sterling Ruby, Ryan Trecartin, and Kaari Upson to make individual artist books for The Los Angeles Project in Beijing.
