ARTBOOK | D.A.P. | DATE 1/1/2022
We’re excited to share our Spring 2022 catalog, featuring a Wolfgang Tillmans photo on the cover. The subject of a major upcoming MoMA retrospective bravely titled To look without fear, Tillmans’ work is characterized by a kind of exalted everydayness; his voracious lens uncovers a subversive beauty in everything. Right now, we’re holding onto the transformative power of beauty: the tulip as the quintessential image of spring, evocative—hopefully—of the ground thawing and cases dropping.
We’re proud to announce that women artists dominate our list, as in the star-studded Women Painting Women, from DelMonico Books and Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and MoMA’s Our Selves: Photographs by Women Artists. Betye Saar is the subject of not one but two unmissable monographs. And Faith Ringgold: Politics / Power is our inaugural publication from Weiss Publications, a new publisher on the D.A.P. list. Also new to our list is Center for Art, Research and Alliances / CARA, the emergent NYC nonprofit art and research institute with a committed publishing program, formerly known as New York Consolidated.
A few of our key art and design monographs and exhibition catalogs include MoMA’s Matisse: The Red Studio; Louise Bourgeois: The Woven Child from Hatje Cantz; Nick Cave: Forothermore, published to accompany the major career survey opening at MoCA Chicago in May; America Goes Modern: The Rise of the Industrial Designer—MFA Publications' compendium of masterpieces of furniture, metalware and plastics from the early 20th century; and Lee Alexander McQueen: Mind, Mythos, Muse from DelMonico Books and LACMA, juxtaposing the late, influential fashion designer’s work with historic textiles and works of art.
In the photography category, we’re looking forward to Steidl’s expanded reissue of Gordon Parks: Segregation Story, including recently uncovered images and texts not included in the iconic 2014 first edition. Another exciting expanded reissue is Joel Meyerowitz: Redheads from Damiani, collecting the color-photo pioneer’s celebratory portraits of red-headed subjects against the contrasting blue backdrop of Cape Cod. Also garnering a great deal of advance attention: Dawoud Bey & Carrie Mae Weems: In Dialogue from DelMonico Books and Grand Rapids Art Museum presents a visual and conceptual conversation between two leading American photo-artists famed for their explorations of race, class and power.
And lastly, we highly recommend Everyday Play from Redstone Press—a collection of artists’ games, philosophers’ inquiries and manifestos against the banal. Learn how to be someone else for a day; explore how to draw a poem, become a living sculpture… All of these exercises are meant to inject delight into your day. A boost we could all use!
