Throughout his six-decade career, Tony Conrad (1940–2016) forged a unique path through numerous artistic movements and a vast range of cultural forms—from Fluxus to rock music, from structural film to public access television. Published on the occasion of the first large-scale museum survey devoted to works Conrad presented in museum and gallery settings, this richly illustrated catalogue offers an in-depth introduction to Conrad's life and career.
Including new texts and Conrad's own writings about selected works dating from 1966 to 2016, Introducing Tony Conrad surveys the artist's work in painting, sculpture, film, video, performance and installation. It includes the artist's early structural films; projects in which he treated film as a sculptural and performative material; his series of Invented Acoustical Tools, presented as sculptures themselves; his ambitious films about power relations, set in the military and in prison; and his final sculptures and installations, which evoke and critique what he perceived as an emerging culture of surveillance, control and containment. The list of contributors testifies to Conrad's wide and lasting influence; this volume includes texts by Constance DeJong, Diedrich Diederichsen, Anthony Elms, Branden W. Joseph, Tony Oursler and Christopher Williams, among many others.

The catalog of the Italian national participation in the 2017 Venice Biennale.
Three artists have been selected to represent Italy at the 2017 Venice Biennale: Giorgio Andreotta Calo, Roberto Cuoghi, and Adelita Husni-Bey. They are relatively young artists, belonging to the same generation as the curator, and have been present on the international art scene since the year 2000. Their works speak global languages but are closely linked to the culture of Italy, without overlooking its current cosmopolitan aspect. Giorgio Andreotta Calo focuses on dialogues between space and artistic action, Roberto Cuoghi–the best known of the three–carries out research into memory and time, and Adelita Husni-Bey involves the public in artistic practices connected with history and social issues.

Juxtaposing the heavenly and the debased, the innocent and the perverse, the celestial and the microscopic, Polish artist Jakub Julian Ziólkowski (born 1980) traces his artistic lineage from Hieronymus Bosch to Philip Guston. Ziólkowski's work makes a startling demand: it asks the eye not to glance but to hold focus on the unraveling chaos of his images, and to embrace the hallucinatory vehemence of his vision. Part of the 2000 Words series, conceived and commissioned by Massimiliano Gioni, and published by the Deste Foundation for Contemporary Art, this volume presents the entirety of the Polish artist's works in the Dakis Joannou Collection and includes an essay by Cecilia Alemani that examines how the artist's work searches the body for a nonhierarchical image of the universe.

For the collector of contemporary art, the acquisition of new work is an aesthetic and intellectual adventure that records a personal journey and cuts a unique cross-section through the culture. Consequently every collector has a different story to tell about art and the art market today. The world of the collector overlaps with that of the artist but is also a realm of stratospheric prices, occasional plunges in value and gestures of bold speculation. As a public figure and commentator, the collector has regained a prominence and a spotlight role little seen in earlier decades, and Collecting Contemporary Art has been assembled to address the emergence of the twenty-first century collector. Published in JRP|Ringier's superb Hapax series, this volume gathers interviews with 40 collectors from Europe, the Americas and Asia, among them Renato Alpegiani, Blake Byrne, Teresa Sapey, Tian Jun, Uli Sigg, David Roberts and Ivo Wessel.
