Published by Actes Sud.
Edited and text by Mâkhi Xenakis.

Reviewing Louise Bourgeois' monumental 2007-2008 traveling retrospective during its stop at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, The New York Times' Holland Cotter wrote, for Bourgeois, "art is not a job; it is a life. It is what you do when you get up in the morning, and what you continue to do all day, through headaches and phone calls, breakups and breakdowns, silences and celebrations. It is what you keep doing after dark, and when you can't sleep at night... She is an art-world presence, a personality and a loquacious one, ever ready to share her history." This volume, an absolute treasure put together by the French artist Mâkhi Xenakis, takes the reader back to Bourgeois' childhood haunts. It includes documentary and family photographs from the artist's youth, as well as reproductions of artworks that are traced to specific times and places during her life. Short texts accompany each image and Bourgeois' comments and explanations run throughout.

Yves Klein: With the Void, Full PowersYves Klein: With the Void, Full Powers

Published by Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden/Walker Art Center.
Text by Kerry Brougher, Philippe Vergne, Klaus Ottmann, Kaira M. Cabañas, Andria Hickey.

One of the last century's most influential artists, Yves Klein (1928–1962) took the European art scene by storm in a prolific career that lasted only from 1954 to 1962, when he suffered a heart attack at the age of 34. Klein was an innovator who embraced painting, sculpture, performance, photography, music, theater, film, architecture and theoretical writing. Self-identified as “the painter of space,” Klein sought to achieve immaterial spirituality through pure color (primarily an ultramarine blue of his own invention—International Klein Blue) and even went so far as to present white galleries emptied of all artworks for his renowned 1958 exhibition of “the Void.” His diverse oeuvre represents a pivotal transition from modern art's concern with the material object to contemporary notions of the conceptual nature of art. Yves Klein: With the Void, Full Powers is published to accompany the first major retrospective of the artist's work in the United States in nearly 30 years. It includes examples from all of Klein's major series, including his Anthropometries, Cosmogonies, fire paintings, planetary reliefs and blue monochromes, as well as selections of his lesser-known gold and pink monochromes, body and sponge reliefs, “air architecture” and immaterial works. Essays by curators Kerry Brougher and Philippe Vergne, Klein scholar Klaus Ottmann, art historian Kaira M. Cabañas and curatorial fellow Andria Hickey, as well as archival materials and translations of Klein's published and unpublished writings, offer insights into the artist's endeavors and process.
Born in Nice, France, in 1928, Yves Klein created what he considered his first artwork when he signed the sky above Nice in 1947, making his earliest attempt to capture the immaterial. The artist carved out new aesthetic and theoretical territory based on his study of the mystical sect Rosicrucianism, philosophical and poetic investigations of space and science, and the practice of Judo, which he described as “the discovery of the human body in a spiritual space.”

Five Films about Christo And Jeanne-ClaudeFive Films about Christo And Jeanne-Claude

Films by the Maysles Brothers

Published by Plexifilm.
Films by The Maysles Brothers. Essay by Charles Taylor. Introduction by Albert Maysles.

Five Films About Christo and Jeanne-Claude chronicles a 30-year collaboration between the internationally renowned environmental artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, and acclaimed documentary filmmakers Albert and David Maysles. The Maysles brothers, along with such frequent co-filmmakers as Charlotte Zwerin and Susan Froemke, have captured the artists' enduring romantic and artistic relationship and the grandeur of their large-scale temporary public works. This series of award-winning films stands as a permanent document of the process, the political drama, the emotional investment, and the transforming effect the finished works have on all those who come into contact with them. Christo and Jeanne-Claude's artistic undertakings are legendary. Whether they were surrounding islands off the coast of Florida in bright pink fabric, erecting a 24-mile-long, 18-foot-high fence of white cloth across two Northern California counties, or wrapping the Pont Neuf in Paris, their monumental works become narratives of hope and triumph in the face of adversity. And the act of filming becomes a project in and of itself, with the filmmakers present every step of the way, from planning and permission, to execution and display of these temporary artworks.
This three-DVD set is the most complete motion picture collaboration ever released between filmmakers and artists. Five award-winning films are included: Christo's Valley Curtain (1974), Running Fence (1978), Islands (1986), Christo in Paris (1990), and Umbrellas (1995). Each film has been digitally remastered with new transfers supervised by Albert Maysles, and the whole is presented along with new interviews and an 82-page, full-color booklet featuring stills, drawings and essays.

Jeff Koons: VersaillesJeff Koons: Versailles

Published by Editions Xavier Barral.
Foreword by François Pinault. Text by Jena-Pierre Criqui, Edouard Papet, Michel Houellebecq, Béatrix Saule.

This volume presents a marriage made in camp heaven--the splendid extravagance of the palace of Versailles as a backdrop for the gregarious, loud and equally extravagant sculptures of contemporary American Pop artist Jeff Koons, who mounted the first contemporary art exhibition ever in the apartments of the king in September 2008. What other artist could match Louis XIV's love of the saccharine gesture? Sugared up to the max, Koons here counterposes Versailles' rich detail with his more simplified forms, including a monumental red chocolate-box-style heart, balloon dog and suspended red aluminum lobster. Other works outdo Versailles for kitsch, such as Koons' marble self-portrait, playfully sited amid busts of Louis XIV, his infamous "Michael Jackson and Bubbles" sculpture and his ever-cryptic bare-breasted blonde clutching the Pink Panther. Yet others, such as the large vase of flowers, blend seamlessly with the decor. Needless to say, accusations of irreverence have abounded, but Koons avows only respect for the venue and has testified that he has drawn inspiration for his floral sculptures from the "fantasy and control" shown by Louis XIV himself. The degree of sympathy is as hard to contest as the edge of parody: Asked why he installed his vitrine of vacuum cleaners among the portraits of royalty in the Queen's antechamber, Koons replied that, among other things, vacuum cleaners are "very womblike." This monograph records each of the 17 works as exhibited and is supplemented with texts by Jean-Jacques Aillagon, chairman of Versailles and a former French culture minister, and controversial French novelist Michel Houellebecq, among others.

The French New WaveThe French New Wave

Published by D.A.P./Distributed Art Publishers.
Text by Jean Douchet.

The last word on the French New Wave as viewed by one of its most influential commentators, this glorious book examines the golden days of that era, year by year, from 1955 to 1964, through beautifully-reproduced stills, movie posters and contemporary reviews from numerous sources. Jean Douchet, a staff writer on Cahiers du Cinéma during the New Wave's heyday, has written introductions that trace emergent themes in the films of Godard, Truffaut, Rohmer, Marker, Chabrol, Malle, Resnais, Rivette, Varda, Eustache, Astruc and Demy. French New Wave is unsurpassed as a history of the most influential movement in cinema history.
"Here is a lavish history of the film movement that spawned the careers of Francois Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard and a number of other important contemporary filmmakers. Douchet... considers his subject from almost every possible angle."--Library Journal. "A landmark in film scholarship."--Cineaste
