The Hayward Gallery's acclaimed 'Kiss My Genders' is a new release this week!

Zanele Muholi's "Phila I, Parktown" (2016) is reproduced from Kiss My Genders, published to accompany the Hayward Gallery's critically-acclaimed current exhibition exploring and challenging traditional gender categories. For Muholi, photography is "a space for people to be visible, respected and recognized." In the Somnyama Ngonyama: Hail the Dark Lioness self-portrait series from which this work is drawn (2012–present), Muholi uses everyday, domestic materials—including rubber gloves, clothes pegs and scouring pads—to craft elaborate costumes or backdrops that hold deep psychological importance. Muholi has deliberately altered the contrast of these black-and-white images in order to enhance the dark tones. Speaking of this series, Muholi has said: 'I'm reclaiming my blackness, which I feel is continuously performed by the privileged other.'"

Monumental 'America: Films from Elsewhere' is new from The Shoestring Publisher

America: Films from Elsewhere is a beautifully-designed, 616-page survey of cinematic interrogations of American culture, people and systems by auteurs outside of the States. Spanning Chantal Akerman to Lars von Trier, the comprehensive scope of this study seeks to uncloud the mystique of Hollywood, explore the world’s most dominant capitalist empire and uncover intranational secrets from the perspective of the non-citizen. A certain undercurrent also implicates the reader in a consideration of national identity and global unity, while text contributors such as Adam Nayman, Clare Davies, Corina Copp, Ed Halter, Elena Gorfinkel, Hilton Als, James Quandt, Jim Hoberman, Rachel Dwyer and Vic Brooks all work in service of the question, “What is America?” Featured image is from Pablo Larraín’s Jackie, starring Natalie Portman.

In 'Kohei Yoshiyuki: The Park,' an anticipation so acute it's almost deranged

Featured image is reproduced from The Park, Radius Books and Yossi Milo's beautiful new edition of the cult 1970s photobook by Kohei Yoshiyuki. A collection of "voyeuristic photographs of people having sex, and of voyeurs—peepers—watching people having sex, with infrared film," in the words of Noboyushi Araki, the photographs are truly shocking and mesmerizing. "Some of the more well-attended gatherings recall photographs of seances from the turn of the last century," Vince Aletti writes. "But instead of staring wide-eyed at a levitating body, table or chair floating in mid-air, the participants' attention is directed to something writhing on the ground. There's a similar current of excitement in the air—electric, sulphurous, a little frightening—and an anticipation so acute it's almost deranged. It's not the sex in Yoshiyuki's photographs that's shocking, it's the reckless, frantic fascination of the voyeurs—men so possessed that, for the moment, nothing else exists or matters—and the sense that we've all been there."

Pop complexity in 'Matthew Brannon: Concerning Vietnam'

Matthew Brannon's complex, deceptively pop and eerily retro-timely Concerning Vietnam is "a puzzle about a puzzle," Blanton Museum curator Veronica Roberts writes of this new book on the artist's iconic print series. "To tackle the Vietnam War in a nonpolemical way—to present documents instead of moral denouncements—disrupts our natural desire to quickly assign blame. While the presence of these documents forms its own kind of critique—repudiating the misperception that officials didn't have enough information and intelligence to avert the war—Concerning Vietnam prompts us to be more concerned about the present and future wars than about judging the past." Featured image is Concerning Vietnam: Oval Office, November 1961 (2017).

Feminist, queer, prophetic and imperative: Harmony Hammond, 'Material Witness'

"Presence II" (1971) is reproduced from Harmony Hammond: Material Witness, Five Decades of Art, published to accompany the game-changing septuagenarian's first career retrospective, on view through September 15 at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Connecticut. "Her visual work, which she refers to as 'the painting body,' radiates a 'felt content' that bridges hard-lived awareness and feminist and queer ideologies with abstract and material concerns," essayist Amy Smith-Stewart writes. "In doing so, Hammond imbues her works with tenderized moments, infused with fingering and fixing, as she deftly juxtaposes, mediates, integrates and interweaves orthodoxly antagonistic forces like art-craft, painting-sculpture, wall-floor, angle-curve, part-whole, self-collective, inside-outside, male-female, to herald a handmade abstract expression that is percipient in its ability to maintain emblematic elasticity. In a century where historical dualities are becoming more fluid, an examination of Hammond's life work feels not only prophetic, but also imperative." To read Holland Cotter's glowing review of the Aldrich show, continue to The New York Times.

Making American history: 'Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music'

"The kids of the counterculture were not pigeonholed in their musical tastes. So I decided early on to book an eclectic group of artists," festival co-creator and co-founder Michael Lang writes in Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music, his new book from Reel Art Press. "I had a wild idea about having Roy Rogers end the festival with his song Happy Trails—a perfect end to three days of peace and music, but his manager turned me down. Instead, famously, Jimi Hendrix closed the festival at 9 a.m. on Monday morning when there was a dwindling but steadfast audience of around 20 thousand left: Jimi played in broad daylight to create what is now Woodstock history—a performance captured on film of The Star Spangled Banner that still gives me chills." Featured photograph is by Dan Garson.

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the largest peaceful gathering in the history of the world

"On the weekend of August 15–17, 1969, our Woodstock festival became the second largest city in New York State," Michael Lang writes in Reel Art Press's remarkable new fiftieth-anniversary publication, Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music. "I later heard that some Hare Krishnas who were there compared the crowd to the multitudes in India who flock to the banks of the Ganges to ritualistically bathe in sacred waters. Stephen Stills quipped that the size of the crowd was like a combination of the Macedonian Army and the 12 Tribes of Israel. When musicians flew over the gathering in a helicopter, they were gobsmacked to see the massive audience below… It was the crowd that became the most important element for everyone. No one could have imagined what it would be like to be among 500 thousand people. It was the largest peaceful gathering in the history of the world at that point." Featured photograph, of John Sebastian on stage before the crowd, is by Henry Diltz.

Woodstock's message of peace and music, fifty years to the day

Today, we celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Woodstock, which ran August 15–18, 1969. Co-founded and co-organized by Michael Lang, author of the stellar new scrapbook-like illustrated book from Reel Art Press, the festival remains the world's greatest icon of hippie ideals. "Though the counterculture was in full bloom in California and New York, hippies were still a rarity in lots of places," Lang writes. "But when all these people came together at our festival, it became clear there was a Woodstock Nation. Rob Kennedy, a teenager who hitched to Bethel from New Jersey, told me, 'I don’t think any of us believed there were that many hippies in the USA. We were the only freaks in our high school at that time. We knew there were some in surrounding towns, but we had no idea. That was one of the most empowering aspects of Woodstock. We realized we had the numbers.'"

In Hildegard von Bingen's visionary 'Scivias,' a true cosmic symphony

Featured image, created circa 1152 along with 34 other images in the sequence, is from visionary German abbess, composer, writer, artist and mystic Hildegard von Bingen's Scivias, illustrating 26 compelling visions of the journey of humanity via Eve's womb. "To preserve the memory of this experience and make it habitual and habitable," musician and scholar Sara Salvadori writes, "Hildegard transcribed for us Heaven's song, making this symphony resonate with us so that we may embrace on Earth the power of the original seed, to then—following the breath of the song—bring it upward until it transforms into water, air, fire, pure light, in the fullness of life in a true cosmic symphony."

From Michael Jang and Atelier Éditions, sophisticated and surprising coffee table gold

Previously under-the-radar San Francisco-based photographer Michael Jang has an unequivocal knack for capturing something virtually uncapturable in the people, places and things that populate his black-and-white snapshot and portrait photographs. No family member, celebrity, punk or poet is immune. A master of detection-evasion, over the past forty years he has quietly placed himself in both high- and low-profile events and locations and miraculously photographed strange or unique energy with his camera. This hefty, beautifully-produced, clothbound first major monograph from London-based Atelier Éditions highlights five decades of virtually unknown work over 250 pages—sophisticated and surprising coffee table gold. Featured image is "Mother and Daughter in Laundry Room" (1973).

Presenting the astonishing old powderglass bead collection of songwriter Billy Steinberg, it is the first book dedicated to the nineteenth-century beads made by the Ashanti and Ewe people of Ghana and Togo from finely-ground, recycled glass. In West Africa, they are regarded as magical, according to essayists John and Ruth Picard, and “worn proudly as a symbol of prestige and wealth. Their protective powers are well known, somewhat equivalent to the dZi beads of Tibet.”

Something terrifying emerging from the anxious brushstrokes in 'Landscape Painting Now'

Shara Hughes’ “Tipsy” (2016) is reproduced from Landscape Painting Now, the summertime staff favorite from D.A.P. Publishing. Hughes’ worlds “are in perpetual flux,” Robert R. Shane writes, “as colorful forms morph into one another, an effect that echoes her improvisational and playful process and is reinforced by her collage-like combination of materials and techniques, including oil paint, dye, airbrushing and enamels.… The childlike quality of the mark-making underscores the sense of youthful imagination and spontaneity that Hughes achieves; yet, as in so much of her work, there is also the sense of something terrifying emerging from the anxious brushstrokes.”

'Basquiat's "Defacement": The Untold Story' releases this week!

“It could be argued that Defacement (The Death of Michael Stewart) (1983) is Jean-Michel Basquiat’s most personal painting,” Chaédria LaBouvier writes in the Guggenheim Museum’s enlightening new release. “A first among equals in an oeuvre noted for its intensity and intimacy, no other work from Basquiat’s body of work has surfaced with more unfiltered feeling and vulnerability, nor has depicted a current event that touched his life so directly. The location of the work’s primary pulse as decidedly emotional rather than strictly political is remarkable, for Basquiat mostly favors temporally distant subjects over contemporary, nameable, concrete enemies. Defacement demonstrates an exceptional if temporary shift in Basquiat’s body of work from verisimilar depiction to a more deeply felt, personal veracity. It is a rare painting by the artist that does not portray black masculinity and its traumas with the heroism and valor that he so deeply admired—at times relied on—as a bulwark against the marginalization of racism and the threat of its violent enforcement, the legacy of colonialism and slavery. Though an outlier among the artist’s highly singular output in terms of style and substance, Defacement has the potential to serve as a Rosetta stone to help us better understand Basquiat’s work as a whole.”

Jean-Michel Othoniel's 'Secret Language of Flowers' details the hidden meanings of the various flowers in the Louvre

This detail of “The Entombment of Atala” (1808) by Anne-Louis Girodet de Roucy-Trioson—with its tree-carved inscription translating roughly, "I passed like the flower... I dried like the grass of the field"—is reproduced from The Secret Language of Flowers: Notes on the Hidden Meanings of the Louvre’s Flowers, the follow-up to Jean-Michel Othoniel’s beloved and beautifully produced collection of flower-related imagery in the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. “Trumpet vine, once called Indian Jasmine, was introduced to Europe in the seventeenth century,” Othoniel writes. “It originated in tropical regions. There, its red trumpets offer their sweet nectar to hummingbirds. In France, these flowers are the glory of Provençal gardens. In painting, they symbolize the exotic and the passionate; the sensual shape of their flowers evokes male erotic tension. Their winding creepers represent attachment to an infinite love, stronger than death.”

Tracey Bashkoff on Hilma af Klint

Measuring almost 11 feet tall by 8 feet wide, Hilma af Klint's "Group IV, The Ten Largest, No. 1, Childhood" (1907) is reproduced from Paintings for the Future, the Guggenheim Museum's 2018 blockbuster, which is back in stock at last. "The cycle focuses on the stages of life and humanity's connection to the universe," curator Tracey Bashkoff writes . "The mix of floral, geometric, and biomorphic forms with letters and inverted words creates a vocabulary of complex and shifting meanings, with which af Klint herself appears to have grappled. In these works a plant tendril may become a spiral, which in turn unfolds into a coiling line that then scribes a calligraphic letter—codes and words from an unknown language. Two pulsing orbs are, at the same time, microscopic eggs and intersecting solar systems. These forms continue to evade singular or stable interpretations—evolution, continuity, growth and progress all coexist with a return to the beginning of the oneness of the spirit. Science and spirit, mind and matter, the micro and the macro are simultaneously present."
