Matthew Ritchie: A Garden in the FloodMatthew Ritchie: A Garden in the Flood

Published by DelMonico Books/Frist Art Museum.
Edited with introduction and text by Mark W. Scala. Text by Caroline A. Jones, Matthew Ritchie. Interview by Hanna Benn, Paul Kwami.

Renowned New York–based interdisciplinary artist Matthew Ritchie (born 1964) seeks to visualize thought, connecting such fields as philosophy and mythology, epic poetry and science fiction, and history and physics, through installations of paintings, wall drawings, light boxes, games, sculpture, films and performance works. His works challenge social fragmentation by suggesting a unified theory of everything.
Published for an exhibition at the Frist Art Museum, A Garden in the Flood examines a selection of his paintings, architectural structures, elaborate diagrams and hallucinatory video animations (which notably include a collaboration with the Grammy Award–winning Fisk Jubilee Singers). Employing “garden” and “flood” as metaphors for growth and destruction, transformation and renewal, Ritchie encourages readers to “reimagine the role art could play in whatever form of society may emerge next.”

Matthew Ritchie: The Morning LineMatthew Ritchie: The Morning Line

Aranda Lasch, Arup Agu

Published by Moderne Kunst Nürnberg.
Edited Eva Ebersberger, Daniela Zyman. Preface by Francesca von Habsburg. Text by Benjamin Aranda, Brandon LaBelle, Helene Furján, Chris Lasch, Tony Myatt, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Matthew Ritchie, Roland Schöny, Mark Wasiuta.

Situated at the interaction of art, architecture, music, mathematics, cosmology and science, Matthew Ritchie’s “The Morning Line” is a 33-foot high sound pavilion, constructed in aluminum and conceived in part as a successor to Edgard Varèse and Le Corbusier’s pavilion for the 1958 World’s Fair, and Fritz Bornemann’s Expo ’70 Pavilion. Designed in collaboration with New York-based architects Aranda Lasch, the Arup Advanced Geometry Unit and the Music Research Centre of York University, the structure was inspired by the cosmological theories of Paul Steinhardt and Neil Turok, and offered a sonic environment in which newly commissioned works by well-known musicians were performed. This survey of the project includes a book containing Todd Eberle’s photographs of the structure, a poster, a newspaper and a red vinyl LP with music by contemporary electronica musicians such as Alexej Borisov, Tommi Grönlund, Petteri Nisunen, Christian Fennesz, Carsten Nicolai, Zsolt Olejnik, Finnbogi Petursson, Franz Pomassl, Terre Thaemlitz and Zavoloka.

Matthew Ritchie: Proposition PlayerMatthew Ritchie: Proposition Player

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Lynn Herbert. Essays by Laura Heon, Lynn M. Herbert, Thyrza Nichols Goodeve and Jenelle Porter. Foreword by Marti Mayo.

In 1995, British artist Matthew Ritchie embarked on an extraordinary undertaking: he set out to tell the story of everything, from the Big Bang onward. His tale was to be told in paintings and drawings through a core group of 49 characters drawn from sources as diverse as mythology, quantum physics, alchemy, gambling, biblical tales, and pulp fiction. With Proposition Player, Ritchie's first major solo museum exhibition and accompanying catalogue, his narrative has reached a "climax, collapse, and crisis"--the story has morphed into a game and Ritchie has created a veritable information casino. Accompanying the paintings and drawings for which the artist is internationally known are works in new media, including a 100-foot-long three-dimensional drawing, an interactive craps table with digital animation that invites viewers to roll the dice for the future of the universe, an enormous rubble floor mosaic that invites viewers to walk into the heart of the piece, and a deck of cards featuring Ritchie's cast of characters.
