For almost 40 years, Joyce Kozloff (born 1942) has lived near New York's Chinatown and fantasized traveling the Silk Route. For this project, Kozloff pasted Chinese tissue paper cutouts into a sketchbook, then copied old maps of the Silk Road onto these pages--some in Chinese, some in English. She then painted into these cartographic collages using the bright colors of contemporary Chinese pop culture, and went to Google Maps to search for "China," which appeared all over the globe: China, New York; China, Indiana; China, Tanzania; China, Mexico, so she downloaded and collaged over these too. Finally she photographed the piles of stuff on Mott Street, Manhattan; Main Street, Flushing, Queens; 8th Street, Sunset Park, Brooklyn; Webster Street, Oakland and Grant Avenue, San Francisco, California--all destinations on the twenty-first century global Silk Route.

Joyce Kozloff: Co-Ordinates considers the New York-based artist's paintings and works on paper--which employ the formal structure and conventions of cartography to examine issues of power, gender and global politics--from the late 1990s to the present. This is the first book to consider Kozloff's work since the late 1990s within the broader context of her career and the history of map-related art. Charting her influential contribution to the Pattern and Decoration movement--which was an integral part of the downtown New York art scene of the 1970s--the volume also explores Kozloff's later, large-scale public artworks. Fifty full-color photo spreads are dedicated to key projects--Targets, Boys' Art, American History and Voyages--and accompanied by an essay by critic Nancy Princenthal and an interview with the artist.
Joyce Kozloff is a founding member of the Pattern and Decoration movement and the Heresies collective and is a primary figure in the feminist art world.

Essay by Robert Kushner.
Whether it was waged at Pitcairn Island, Nagasaki, or the Falkland Islands, whether during the Han Dynasty, the English Empire, or the Cold War, battles have been fought, people slaughtered, women raped, children orphaned, and so on, as the pages of history turn. The current world situation, in the very first years of the twenty-first century, is certainly no exception. The visual residue of these battles changes over time, growing more and more dense, more and more immediate. But always there have been maps, detailed cartographic evidence of what was known, what was planned, what was going to happen. For over a dozen years, Joyce Kozloff has centered her art on the theme of cartography, blending into her simulacra of old maps mutations that often raise geopolitical issues. She discovered in these images of physical terrain a mental territory as well--one that charts the topography of power. Boys' Art is a series of meticulous, densely collaged maps that Kozloff has fashioned from hundreds of years of source material, the most recent of which are her son Nik's childhood drawings of war. On top of her pristine pencil copies of historic military maps--culled from the Han dynasty to the Roosevelt administration--Kozloff has layered the movements of war, as found in Tin Tin and Babar, in a seventeenth-century woodblock by Hokusai, in a George Grosz pen and ink drawing, or a Leonardo da Vinci sketch. Surreal narratives emerge, pitting cartoon elephants against samurai warriors, scribbled monsters against Indians on horseback, and Renaissance soldiers against Frenchmen in khaki fatigues and pith helmets.
Presented in an oversize format at a 1:1 scale with the original collages, Boys' Art lushly presents a series of work that unfortunately could not be more timely. But then, as Kozloff herself writes in the introduction, there has always been war. A special version of Boys' Art includes a hand-tinted etching by Joyce Kozloff, produced in a limited edition of 50 at the Vermont Studio Center Press.
