Terry Adkins: The Smooth, the Cut, and the AssembledTerry Adkins: The Smooth, the Cut, and the Assembled

Published by Lévy Gorvy.
Text by Charles Gaines, Michael Brenson. Poetry by Robin Coste Lewis.

The work of American sculptor and musician Terry Adkins (1953–2014) often started with a theme or idea, illuminated by sculptural components that sometimes housed a performative element. The performative and sculptural aspects of his practice evolved in tandem, and utilized materials that had likely served another purpose, be they instruments, materials from his printmaking experiences or locally sourced items.

This catalog accompanies Lévy Gorvy's first solo exhibition of Adkins' works, exploring the materiality of his sculptures. The exhibition was curated by Charles Gaines, a celebrated artist and longtime friend and collaborator of Adkins', who contributes an essay to this publication that explores the experience of viewing Adkins' sculptures. Also included are an essay by Michael Brenson and newly commissioned poetry by Robin Coste Lewis.

Corin Hewitt: WeavingsCorin Hewitt: Weavings

Performance No. 2 (Portland, OR)

Published by J&L Books.
Text by Michael Brenson, Marisa Sanzhez.

During a three-week residency at Portland, Oregon's Small A Projects in 2007, New York-based artist Corin Hewitt, born in 1971, constructed an elaborate workspace within the gallery, complete with a kitchen, photo studio and theater in which the apron-wearing artist performed a series of tasks--cooking, sculpting, eating and weaving--as gallery visitors viewed him through a peephole. Merging elements representing both the contemporary and the historic Northwest, Hewitt transformed such materials as baskets, fabric, canned food, fresh vegetables and grass--as well as elements from the first performance in this ongoing series--into hybridized objects. The 75 color photographs in this book, all taken on-site by Hewitt, document the performance. Combining the sculptural with the theatrical, the photographic with the performative, Hewitt's innovative work has also been shown at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Seattle Art Museum and Taxter & Spengemann gallery in New York.

Daniel Joseph Martinez: A Life of DisobedienceDaniel Joseph Martinez: A Life of Disobedience

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Hakim Bey, Michael Brenson, David Levi Strauss, Gilbert Vicario.

For more than 30 years, Los Angeles-born artist Daniel Joseph Martinez has been honing his politically-inflected practice, which critic Jeffrey Kastner has characterized as "unapologetically prob[ing] uncomfortable issues of personal and collective identity, seeking out threadbare spots in the fabric of conventional wisdom." A wry provocateur, Martinez incorporates an impressive array of media including text, painting, photography, sculpture, video, performance--even animatronics. Known for the controversial pin he created as an interactive piece for the 1993 Whitney Biennial that read, "I can't imagine ever wanting to be white," this volume, with essays by Michael Brenson, David Levi Strauss, Hakim Bey and Gilbert Vicario, provides an in-depth look at selected works from 1978 through Martinez's 2008 Whitney Biennial entry, "Divine Violence," including his contributions to the San Juan Triennial in 2004, the Cairo Biennial in 2006 and the Moscow Biennial in 2007.

Witness to Her ArtWitness to Her Art

Art and Writings by Adrian Piper, Mona Hatoum, Cady Noland, Jenny Holzer, Kara Walker, Daniela Rossell and Eau de Cologne

Published by Bard College.
Edited by Rhea Anastas, Michael Brenson. Foreword by Tom Eccles. Text by Adrian Piper, Kara Walker, Daniela Rossell, Mona Hatoum, Cady Noland, Jenny Holzer, Monika Sprüth, Rhea Anastas, Michael Brenson, Norton Batkin, Johanna Burton, Aruna D'Souza, Pamela Franks, Janet Kraynak, David Levi Strauss, Cuauhtémoc Medina, Ann Reynolds, Hamza Walker.

This radical new study aims to change the way that some of the most influential artists of the past 40 years are seen--all of them women. Emphasizing questions of autonomy, critical intelligence and artistic intention, Witness to Her Art presents works by Adrian Piper, Mona Hatoum, Cady Noland, Jenny Holzer, Kara Walker, Daniela Rossell and Eau de Cologne, a magazine published by gallerist Monika Sprüth. The artworks are accompanied by original writings by the artists, contemporaneous criticism and newly commissioned essays by Pamela Franks, Aruna D'Souza, Johanna Burton, David Levi Strauss, Hamza Walker and Cuauhtémoc Medina. The ambitious works presented and interpreted herein invite us to consider the impact of the feminist revolution across generations while rendering obsolete any stigma associated with shows or catalogues limited to women artists. Taking its lead from Conceptualism, feminism, and from its included artists, Witness to Her Art reaches for art history's capacity as a medium of world-making.
