Theaster Gates: Every Square Needs a CircleTheaster Gates: Every Square Needs a Circle

Published by Gray.
Text by Theaster Gates, Zachary Cahill.

In Every Square Needs a Circle, Theaster Gates (born 1973) offers a rumination on Black economies and empire building, relating to moments from art history and stories of quotidian labor. Produced on the occasion of his first exhibition in his native Chicago in over five years, Every Square Needs a Circle offers a detailed look at the artist’s sculpture, tar paintings, installation and neon work. Gates debuts a multifaceted installation that bridges the work of W.E.B. Du Bois with architectural excerpts from Chicago, placing his interest in the history of objects while expounding on the archives that hold records of Black intelligence.

The book features an introductory poem by Theaster Gates, an essay by Chicago artist Zachary Cahill and 112 color illustrations.

Theaster Gates: Black MadonnaTheaster Gates: Black Madonna

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Josef Helfenstein, Daniel Kurjakovic. Text by Elvira Dyangani Ose, Theaster Gates, Daniel Kurjakovic.

For his Kuntsmuseum Basel exhibition, Chicago-based multiartist Theaster Gates (born 1973) interrogates the mainstream art world’s Eurocentrism through a multi-venue, multimedia exploration of the figure of the Black Madonna.

A self-described “collector of collections,” Gates draws upon his vast arsenal of interdisciplinary talents and personal archives to highlight the Black Madonna’s presence in religion and art history. Including a printing workshop and performances by the artist’s band, the Black Monks, this many-faceted program is as much a site of creation and conversation as it is one of critical engagement.

This clothbound publication serves as an accompaniment to the exhibition and delves into Gates’ methods, featuring pictorial reportage and new essays that highlight a number of complexities related to spirituality, Black identity, and artistic and political agency.

Theaster Gates: My Labor Is My ProtestTheaster Gates: My Labor Is My Protest

Published by White Cube.
Edited by Honey Luard. Text by Bill Brown, Fred Moten, Jacqueline Terrassa.

Theaster Gates (born 1973) is an artist, curator and urban activist whose work aims to galvanize communities and act as a catalyst for social change. For My Labor Is My Protest, a fall 2012 show at London’s White Cube, Gates created a multi-faceted installation that investigated themes of race and history through sculpture, installation, performance and two-dimensional works exhibited both inside and outside of the gallery. In “Raising Goliath,” Gates used theatrical pulleys to suspend a classic red fire-truck from the ceiling of the gallery, counterbalancing it with a huge metal container, housing hundreds of leatherbound issues of African-American magazines such as Jet and Ebony. For “My Labor Is My Protest,” he parked a yellow fire truck at the entrance to the gallery and partially covered it with tar. Also included in the show and accompanying catalogue is documentation of The Johnson Library, a library on black American culture installed at the gallery.

Theaster Gates: 12 Ballads for Hugenot HouseTheaster Gates: 12 Ballads for Hugenot House

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Foreword by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Madeleine Grynsztejn. Text by Michael Darling, Theaster Gates, Matthew Jesse Jackson, John Preus. Conversation with Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev.

12 Ballads for Huguenot House chronicles a project by American installation artist Theaster Gates (born 1973), in which he united two disused buildings--one in Chicago and the other in Kassel, Germany--by dismantling parts of each to reuse in the rebuilding of the other. Huguenot House, in Kassel, was built in the early nineteenth century by migrant workers, as were so many of the houses in Gates’ own neighborhood in Chicago, and today is in a state of disrepair. Gates therefore proposed an architectural exchange, transporting materials from a dilapidated building in Chicago to renovate Huguenot House, while reusing materials from Huguenot House to reconstruct the Chicago building.
