Wardell Milan (born 1978) earned a BFA in photography and painting in 2001 at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and his MFA at Yale University in 2004. Right out of school in 2005 Milan emerged and was included in institutional exhibitions such as Greater New York at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center and Frequency at The Studio Museum in Harlem. Milan has continued to challenge conventions of medium and message in his deeply personal and prolific work, which has been exhibited internationally. His work has been collected by The Studio Museum in Harlem; Denver Art Museum; Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Hessel Museum of Art, Bard College, and Art Institute of Chicago. Milan is represented by David Nolan Gallery in New York. This is Milan's first monograph covering the breadth of his studio and exhibition practice over the course of the past decade and leading into the next.

Jason Middlebrook: My Landscape documents the American sculptor and painter’s exhibition at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, with spectacular installation shots and individual photos of his colorful abstract paintings on hardwood planks, and a major site-specific sculpture--a working fountain suspended from the museum’s rafters--as well as large-scale works on paper and a wall drawing. Texts by Susan Cross, MASS MoCA curator, Cary Levine, Professor of Art History at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and Carter Foster, Curator of Drawings at the Whitney Museum of American Art, shed light on three major facets of Middlebrook’s diverse practice and their relationship to one another. The only major monograph available on the artist, this volume gives fresh insight into Middlebrook’s work and motivations, from the important role nature plays in his art to his preoccupations with time and place and his explorations of both abstraction and representational imagery.

An extensive study on Hopper, which accompanies a major travelling exhibition and illuminates the life and work of one of America’s most celebrated artists. Illustrated with over 150 oils, watercolors, etchings and drawings with comments on their formal and technical characteristics, this exhibition’s catalog offers an updated critical interpretation of Edward Hopper’s work and an alternative view to the extensive literature that already exists on this artist. Among the artworks included are Cape Cod Sunset, Second Story Sunlight, and some interesting self-portraits from the Whitney Museum of American Art; the famous Morning Sun from the Columbus Museum of Art, Ohio, and a number of lesser-known watercolors and oils from Hopper’s journeys to Paris. Also included are essays by several noted scholars, and an extensive chronology and bibliography. Perfect for casual perusing or serious study, this lavish exploration of Edward Hopper’s work is certain to find a wide audience.

American painter Edward Hopper once said, "Maybe I am not very human--what I wanted to do was to paint sunlight on the side of a house." Indeed, Hopper's canvases delineate a new physics of Modern public space, in which the zones between people are not charged with responsiveness (affection, animosity, attraction) but with absolute indifference. Whether alone or grouped, Hopper's solitary figures bespeak Modern metropolitan conditions with a clarity that is deepened by his very specific ability to capture architecture, interior space and, of course, light. The legacy of this vision, coupled with Hopper's unique vocabulary, can be seen in the work of numerous artists today, who are also featured here. Among them are Ed Ruscha, Jim Jarmusch, Todd Haynes, Richard Prince, Rachel Whiteread, Jeff Wall, Markus Schinwald, Philip Lorca diCorcia, David Claerbout, Mark Lewis and Tim Eitel.

New York-based artist Peggy Preheim is known for her minutely detailed, miniscule graphite drawings on otherwise blank sheets of paper, creating a mood and atmosphere specific to her work. Her drawings are influenced by the small sixteenth century panel paintings of the Low Countries, while their lush black-and-white tonalities evoke early found photographs on which they are often based. Published on the occasion of Preheim's first retrospective, which originates at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Connecticut, this monograph is the artist's first and features rich reproductions of works from throughout her 20-year career, including sculpture and photography. Noted designer Daphne Geismar's elegant design perfectly captures the uncanny qualities of Preheim's style. The volume includes essays by curator Carter Foster and critic Gregory Volk, as well as a collection of poems and imaginary letters written in response to selected works by Aldrich Director Harry Philbrick. Published in collaboration with The Aldrich.
