Homo americanus : collected works by Raymond Pettibon( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Raymond Pettibon is the foremost draftsman of his generation, and one of America's most important contemporary artists. Approaching high and low subject matter with equal appetite and comfort, Pettibon plumbs the depths of American sexuality, politics, subcultures, mores, and intellectual histories through themes ranging from Shakespeare to Gumby, surfers to the Bible, baseball to German Romanticism. Published on the occasion of his major European traveling retrospective at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg - Sammlung Falckenberg, Raymond Pettibon: Homo Americanus presents over six hundred works from every part of the artist's career, the majority of which have never been shown before. Arranged thematically in thirty-two chapters, this unique catalogue charts the appearance and development of the themes that have come to define Pettibon's expansive oeuvre. Different sections are introduced with excerpts from interviews conducted with the artist. The book includes a complete facsimile of his first artists' book, Captive Chains - almost entirely unavailable for decades - in addition to numerous early drawings completed with his nephew, record covers, flyers, and sections dedicated to collages and drawings from the 1980s to today
Concrete Cuba : Cuban geometric abstraction from the 1950s by Concrete Cuba( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The development of Cuban geometric abstraction and the formation of Los Diez Pintores Concretos (Ten Concrete Painters) coincided with the radical cultural shifts that raged throughout the country in the 1950s. Against this backdrop, artists sought a new visual language in which abstract art could function as political and social practice. Concrete Cuba, produced on the occasion of the 2015-16 exhibition at David Zwirner, marks one of the first major presentations outside Cuba to focus on concretism in Cuba, and includes important works from the late 1940s through the early 1960s by the 12 artists who were associated with the group: Pedro Álvarez, Wifredo Arcay, Mario Carreño, Salvador Corratgé, Sandú Darié, Luis Martínez Pedro, Alberto Menocal, José M. Mijares, Pedro de Oraá, José Ángel Rosabal, Loló Soldevilla and Rafael Soriano
Anni Albers : notebook 1970-1980 by Anni Albers( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning in 1970, Anni Albers filled her graph-paper notebook regularly until 1980. This rare and previously unpublished document of her working process contains intricate drawings for her large body of graphic work, as well as studies for her late knot drawings. The notebook follows Albers's deliberations and progression as a draftsman in their original form. It reveals the way she went about making complex patterns, exploring them piece by piece, line by line, in a visually dramatic and mysteriously beautiful series of geometric arrangements. An afterword by Brenda Danilowitz, Chief Curator of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, contextualizes the notebook and explores the role studies played in the development of her work. Anni Albers (1899-1994) was a textile artist, designer, printmaker and educator known for her pioneering graphic wall hangings, weavings and designs
Toba Khedoori by Toba Khedoori( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Toba Khedoori's exquisitely crafted and tantalizingly ambiguous drawings and paintings are the subject of this exciting monograph, which accompanies Khedoori's first retrospective in 15 years. This book documents the artistic development of Toba Khedoori, a MacArthur "Genius" Award recipient who skillfully combines precise draftsmanship with a meditative quality, and who manages to invite viewers inside her works, despite their two-dimensionality. Whether drawing on sheets of paper primed with wax and stapled directly onto the wall or using canvas as physical support, Khedoori creates delicate compositions that are at once intimate and expansive. Over the past decade, she has shifted toward smaller-scale works while continuing to engage elements of drawing, painting, and installation."--
Raymond Pettibon : to wit by Raymond Pettibon( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the summer of 2013, Raymond Pettibon (born 1957) converted the David Zwirner exhibition space into an improvised studio, in order to prepare the drawings and collages for his critically acclaimed show at the gallery. The works ranged from depictions of Joe DiMaggio as a young boy, Bob Dylan and the comic strip character Bazooka Joe to pieces dovetailing popular imagery with quotations from Marcel Proust, William Faulkner, Henry James, Gustave Flaubert or the Bible, and addressing themes of violence, humor, sex, evolution, religion, politics, literature, youth, art history and sports. This volume documents both the making of these works during Pettibon's intensive tenure in the space and the finished works themselves. Boasting a drawing made especially for the cover, Raymond Pettibon: To Wit includes an essay by Lucas Zwirner titled "A Month with Raymond" that describes the show's making and offers fresh observations on the relationship between word and image, and reading and writing, in Pettibon's art. This essay is complemented by a selection of black-and-white photographs from Andreas Laszlo Konrath, who also documents the creation of these works, and an interview with Pettibon by artist and founding member of Sonic Youth Kim Gordon, who first encountered Pettibon's work in the early 1980s in Los Angeles. --Amazon

Tell me something good : artist interviews from the Brooklyn rail by Jarrett Earnest( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 2000, The Brooklyn Rail has been a platform for artists, academics, critics, poets and writers in New York and abroad. The monthly journal’s continued appeal is due in large part to its diverse contributors, many of whom bring contrasting and often unexpected opinions to conversations about art and aesthetics. No other publication devotes as much space to the artist’s voice, allowing ideas to unfold and idiosyncrasies to emerge through open discussion. Since its inception, cofounder and artistic director Phong Bui and the Rail’s contributors have interviewed over 400 artists for The Brooklyn Rail. This volume brings together for the first time a selection of sixty of the most influential and seminal interviews with artists ranging from Richard Serra and Brice Marden, to Alex Da Corte and House of Ladosha. While each interview is important in its own right, offering a perspective on the life and work of a specific artist, collectively they tell the story of a journal that has grown during one of the more diverse and surprising periods in visual art. Selected and coedited by Jarrett Earnest, a frequent Rail contributor, with Lucas Zwirner, the book includes an introduction to the project by Phong Bui as well as many of the hand-drawn portraits he has made of those he has interviewed over the years. This combination of verbal and visual profiles offers a rare and personal insight into contemporary visual culture
Fred Sandback : vertical constructions by Fred Sandback( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vertical Constructions, published on the occasion of the Sandback show at David Zwirner in Fall 2016, takes its lead from a historic 1987 exhibition of Sandback's work in Münster, also called Vertical Constructions. With a mixture of rescanned archival imagery that shows the work in situ in Münster, and new photography of these lyrical works installed the Zwirner gallery, this new catalogue is both a historical document and the next step in this body of work, almost exactly three decades after its first presentation. Not only was this a crucial period for Sandback, in which he experimented with the interaction between larger spaces and multiple vertical works, but the show itself was very influential, setting the stage for some of the permanent installations to come
Giorgio Morandi : late paintings by Giorgio Morandi( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication focuses on the period from 1948 to 1964, during which Morandi developed and refined his investigations of serial, reductive, and permutational forms and compositions, a body of work that has had a profound influence on twentieth - century art and painting. Included here are five of the ten iconic "yellow cloth" paintings from 1952, a series featured prominently in the historic 1998 exhibition at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, and numerous late paintings by the Italian master. Lavishly reproduced, these immersive plates draw attention to the idiosyncratic perspectival and color - driven decisions that give the work it s abstract power. Exhibition: David Zwirner Gallery, New York City, United States (06.11-19.12.2015)
Dan Flavin : Corners, barriers and corridors( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at David Zwirner in 2015, 'Corners, Barriers and Corridors' takes as its point of departure Dan Flavin's (1933-96) influential 'corners, barriers and corridors' in fluorescent light from Dan Flavin show, presented at the Saint Louis Art Museum in 1973. The volume brings questions of architecture to the fore, exploring how this particular body of light works function in space. Mining early explorations in Flavin's practice, the book includes many works reproduced for the first time in plates that accurately capture their colors. Above all, the photography reveals the unexpected and powerful interplay between the light of Flavin's constructions and the surrounding space; these works not only function as color experiments but as structural explorations in light. This catalogue presents an especially significant body of work, along with new scholarship by Michael Auping, offering a vital historical perspective on Flavin's practice. 00Exhibition: Zwirner Gallery, NYC, USA (2015)
Richard Serra : forged steel by Richard Serra( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Widely regarded as one of the most influential American artists working today, Richard Serra is known in particular for his large steel sculptural forms, which deal primarily with investigations of weight, balance, density, and scale, as well as their effect on the viewer and his/her sense of space. This catalogue provides an in-depth overview of the artist's works in forged steel
Josef Albers : midnight and noon by Josef Albers( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using minimal means--paint straight from the tube, applied meticulously with a palette knife--and a focused selection of colors, Josef Albers's sustained, serial investigation into rhythm, mood, and spatial movement is explored in this lavishly produced catalogue that looks solely at his respective grey and yellow paintings, exploring two distinct color palettes pervasive to his oeuvre. Highlighting the rich diversity of effects Albers drew from a narrow range of colors, this publication centers around the groundbreaking Homage to the Square (A) (1950), the inaugural painting in the series that would occupy the artist until his death in 1976. The pairing of two palettes--black, white, and grey and an array of yellows--stems in part from Albers's 1964 series of lithographs, Midnight and Noon, which brought together these two opposing color sets in a single portfolio. Together they address the limitless possibilities the artist found in color and form in relation to light. The impossible simultaneity of "midnight" and "noon" moreover speaks to Albers's transcending of what he called "factual facts" in favor of the play of perception and illusion possible in art -- Publisher's website
Felix Gonzalez-Torres by Félix González-Torres( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most significant artists to emerge in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Félix González-Torres (1957-96) reduced formal vocabulary, conceptual rigor and evocative use of everyday materials that resonates with meaning that is at once specific and mutable, rigorous and generous, poetic and political. Featuring several key bodies of work from throughout the artist's career, this publication showcases a series of distinct installations at David Zwirner in New York in 2017. Together, in their radical openness to interventions of site, audience and context, the works on view challenge perceived notions of what constitutes an exhibition space, a public, an artwork itself. Despite the resolute abstraction of much of his work, Gonzalez-Torres worked with familiar materials, from his iconic candy spill works to his evocative light string pieces, to mirrors, clocks and curtains. His work activates the architecture of the various spaces, the physicality of the viewer, the past and present, continuously maintaining its relevance. Opening with details of the exhibition and images of visitors in the spaces, the publication walks the reader through each piece
Carol Bove : polka dots by Carol Bove( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offering a unique glimpse into an artist's studio, this publication visually explores both the process and the finished work of one of today's leading contemporary artists. Built around a series of photographs by Andreas Laszlo Konrath taken over the course of multiple visits to Carol Bove's studio in Brooklyn, this catalogue offers a behind-the-scenes look into her practice. Through the photographs, the reader experiences not only the development of her most recent body of sculptures referred to by the artist as "collage sculptures" but also the materials and conditions that contribute to their creation. They are constructed from square steel tubing that has been crushed and shaped at the studio, found scrap metals, and shallow, highly polished discs. Painted in vivid colors, the sculptures appear lightweight and improvisational despite their heavy materiality. Exhibition: David Zwirner, New York City, USA (November 2016)
Raoul de Keyser : drift by Raoul de Keyser( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Often understated, the emotional force of Raoul De Keyser's cryptic and highly lyrical paintings is undeniable. Composed of very basic geometric shapes that hover between abstraction and figuration, many of De Keyser's works seem to hint at forms just out of focus, spaces impossible to inhabit. Their power lies in their ability to suggest through simple gestures, and to compel intense contemplation. Since his death in 2012, De Keyser's stature as a painter has only continued to grow, as has his influence on a younger generation of European painters. Raoul De Keyser: Drift is published on the occasion of the eponymous show at David Zwirner, first presented at the London gallery in November 2015 and traveling to New York in 2016. Curated by Ulrich Loock, who contributes the catalogue's text, the exhibition is organized around a group of twenty-two paintings that the artist completed shortly before his death. Collectively, these works have become known as The Last Wall. Imposing stark material and formal limitations, De Keyser was able to revisit in this body of work many of the major subjects and themes that occupied him throughout his nearly fifty-year career: the inconspicuous things close at hand, the landscape of the low lands where he grew up and lived all his life, and the partition of the picture plane. This elegant catalogue presents plates and details of a careful selection of paintings, beginning in the 1970s, that emphasizes the tentative way De Keyser chose to explore his themes--never approaching anything directly, hinting rather than demonstrating. Taken together, Raoul De Keyser: Drift reveals an uncompromising artist who continued to pose new aesthetic problems for himself--even at the end of his life--and managed to come up with original and deeply moving solutions."--Publisher's description
Momo : or the curious story about the time thieves and the child who returned the people's stolen time by Michael Ende( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the sweet-talking gray men come to town, life becomes terminally efficient. Can Momo, a young orphan girl blessed with the gift of listening, vanquish the ashen-faced time thieves before joy vanishes forever?
Sherrie Levine : after Reinhardt by Sherrie Levine( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New work by American artist Sherrie Levine engages her ongoing practice of appropriating artworks from the Western art historical canon?this time by taking Ad Reinhardt?s Blue Paintings as a point of departure.0'Monochromes After Reinhardt: 1?28' (2018) continues the artist?s ongoing investigation of color separated from its representational function. Inspired by the exhibition Ad Reinhardt: Blue Paintings held at David Zwirner, New York in 2017, Levine has created abstract restatements of the 28 works that were on view, making use of pixellation to consolidate the range of blue tones in each painting into a single, truly monochromatic value. This work revisits a technique first employed by Levine in her 1989 group of woodcut prints Meltdown, where an averaging algorithm was used to create a checkerboard composition based on modernist artists? iconic paintings. 00Exhibition: David Zwirner Gallery, New York, USA (28.02.-20.04.2019)
Tamuna Sirbiladze by Tamuna Sirbiladze( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a large body of work mainly comprising mixed-media paintings, Tamuna Sirbiladze was known for her distinctive style, which continually forged new terms between dichotomous relationships. Abstract and figurative, playful and serious, energetic and quiet, vibrant and muted, Sirbiladze's work is characterized by both its intensity and flexibility. Known for the speed at which she worked, there is a quality of immediacy in her paintings, as if they provide direct access to her imagination. This primacy is perhaps most evident in her gestural, improvisatory paintings made with oil sticks on unstretched, raw canvas, which purposely retain the appearance of being unfinished
Marcel Dzama : the book of ballet : La chose la plus incroyable dans le monde by Marcel Dzama( Book )
