Rita Ackermann: MamaRita Ackermann: Mama

Published by Hauser & Wirth Publishers.
Text by Scott Griffin, Rita Ackermann. Interview by Harmony Korine.

This book brings together Hungarian-born, New York–based Rita Ackermann's (born 1968) Mama paintings—a suite of new paintings in which figures and motifs rise to the surface of canvases, only to dissolve and reappear elsewhere again. In such works as Mama Painting for Mars (2019), repeated figurative imagery and expanses of intense color combine in complex visual currents. In other works, Ackermann’s distinctive approach to layering of drawings, yields a framework for a maelstrom of vibrant pigments and textures that seem to advance toward the viewer. Thick layers of impasto and oil stick are vigorously and repeatedly applied and scraped in such works as Mama, Morty Smoking (2019), with both the paintbrush and the artist’s bare hands working to shape a site of ancestry and conception.

In addition to a robust plate section containing all of the Mama works to date, this volume also includes a fake interview with Ackermann by filmmaker Harmony Korine.

Rita Ackermann: Under Pressure from 2006 to 2007Rita Ackermann: Under Pressure from 2006 to 2007

Published by Nieves.

This tall, slim, concise volume--filled from front to back with full bleed images--collects recent collage work by the influential New York-based, Budapest-born artist, musician and performer Rita Ackermann--who is represented in New York by Andrea Rosen Gallery. Writing in The New York Times, Roberta Smith described the collage works thus: "Ms. Ackermann is equally at home with scissors or ballpoint pen; with finely rendered figures and poetic phrases or words and images clipped from newspapers and magazines; and with clogged compositions or spare ones. Women--as victors, victims or silent witnesses--appear in all situations." In this volume, installation shots and details but up against one another, drawing the viewer into a world of powerful female physicality. Ackermann's work was featured at the 2008 Whitney Biennial.
