Alex da Corte: True LifeAlex da Corte: True Life

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Claus Due, William Pym. Text by Hilton Als, Charlie Fox, Martine Syms, William Pym, Moritz Wesseler.

This book exhaustively documents Philadelphia-based installation artist Alex Da Corte’s (born 1980) preoccupation with the musician Eminem across four exhibitions. From Detroit to Cologne, from an artist-run space to a major international museum, Da Corte’s work parallels Eminem’s career through his thirties, reappearing, evolving alongside America, explaining more of himself each time. Eminem’s place in culture and his role in Da Corte’s practice, as well as the larger story of American identity, is explored through recent and commissioned essays by Hilton Als, Charlie Fox, William Pym, Martine Syms and Moritz Wesseler, as well as manipulated found texts and an extensive Q&A with Danish filmmaker Jørgen Leth, whose 1982 work Andy Warhol Eating a Hamburger strongly informs the discussion. True Life is both an uncompromising reference book and a work of fantasy.

Alex Da Corte: A Man Full of TroubleAlex Da Corte: A Man Full of Trouble

Published by Karma, New York.

Philadelphia-based Alex Da Corte’s (born 1980) new publication takes its name from the pre-Revolutionary tavern that stands in the heart of Philadelphia’s historic district. Using the “privy,” an archeological pit located near the A Man Full of Trouble tavern, as inspiration, Da Corte presents the world within such a portal; a place where memories, objects, past and present aggregate and reconstitute.

Alex Da Corte and Jayson Musson: EasternsportsAlex Da Corte and Jayson Musson: Easternsports

Published by ICA Philadelphia/Karma, New York.
Text by Kate Kraczon.

Longtime friends and first-time collaborators Alex Da Corte (born 1980) and Jayson Musson (born 1977) created a major new commission for ICA Philadelphia in 2014. Nearly two and a half hours in length, this in-the-round video installation was scripted by Jayson Musson, directed by Alex Da Corte, and scored by composer Devonté Hynes. Easternsports is an amorality tale for the digital age. Both deadly serious and heartbreakingly flippant, it embraces Gap commercials and grand jury rulings, middle-class aspirations and global imperialism. And it transforms a decade-long conversation between Musson and Da Corte into a work awash in the neon glow of their American milieu.
