Bruce Conner Brass HandlesBruce Conner Brass Handles

A Project by Will Brown

Published by J&L Books.
Text by Jean Conner. Photographs by Jason Fulford.

Artist and filmmaker Bruce Conner’s (1933–2008) mobility was severely limited for the last five years of his life, when he rarely left the San Francisco home he shared with his wife, Jean. To aid in his physical navigation of its spaces, he worked with assistants to install a succession of solid brass handles in each and every room--surrounding the stove, down the boat-like stairwell, inside the recesses of the bedroom closet. At last count, the handles, a labyrinth of critical support, numbered 163.

Still in situ after his death in 2008, the handles are arguably Conner’s last great work--at once physical and metaphysical, fragmentary and elusive, elegant and anonymous. Together, they draft the ghost architecture of Conner’s final years, transforming the pedestrian into something altogether different.

Will Brown is a collaborative project founded by Lindsey White, Jordan Stein and David Kasprzak. Formerly based in a San Francisco storefront, Will Brown’s main objective is to manipulate the structures of exhibition-making as a critical practice. Will Brown recently mounted a solo exhibition at the Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive.

William Eggleston: The Democratic ForestWilliam Eggleston: The Democratic Forest

Published by Steidl.
Edited by Mark Holborn, William Eggleston. Introduction by Mark Holborn. Text by Eudora Welty.

Following the publication of Chromes in 2011 and Los Alamos Revisited in 2012, Steidl's reassessment of Eggleston's career continues with the publication of The Democratic Forest, his most ambitious project. This ten-volume set containing more than 1,000 photographs is drawn from a body of 12,000 pictures made by Eggleston in the 1980s. Following an opening volume of work in Louisiana, the ensuing volumes cover Eggleston's travels from his familiar ground in Memphis and Tennessee out to Dallas, Pittsburgh, Miami and Boston, the pastures of Kentucky and as far as the Berlin Wall. The final volume leads the viewer back to the South of small towns, cotton fields, the Civil War battlefield of Shiloh and the home of Andrew Jackson in Tennessee.
The "democratic" in Eggleston's title refers to a democracy of vision, through which the most mundane subjects are represented with the same complexity and significance as the most elevated. This work has rarely been shown and only a fraction of the entire oeuvre has ever been published; the exhaustive editing process has taken over three years. This gorgeous set includes a new introduction by Mark Holborn and the republication of Eudora Welty's original essay on the work.
William Eggleston was born in 1937 in Memphis, Tennessee. He took his first black-and-white photographs at age 18. His first color work was shot in 1964 in color negative film, but in the late 60s he began to use color slides. Eggleston was the subject of a landmark solo exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1976.

Peter Fischli and David Weiss: Flowers and MushroomsPeter Fischli and David Weiss: Flowers and Mushrooms

Published by Walther König, Köln.

This volume is a reprint of the magnificent and rare artist’s book by the Swiss duo Peter Fischli (born 1952) and David Weiss (1946–2012). Bursting with luscious color and consisting of multiple superimposed images, these photographs by Fischli/Weiss (dubbed “the Nichols and May of contemporary art” by The New York Times for their critically admired brand of humor) navigate the fine line between beauty and kitsch. For this series, made between 1997 and 1998, the artists spent countless hours documenting gardens and mushroom patches, thoughtfully crafting intoxicating compositions which took on an element of chance when layered in photographic double exposures. The result is a hallucinogenic portrait of berries, grasses, flowers, weeds and mushrooms in vivid, saturated color, dissolving in and out of focus, beautifully printed on folded, unbound sheets.
