Use of Time Richard Tuttle

Price: €65

An elaborate artist book with 18 cards, loosely bound by a weaver knot.

Richard Tuttle has worked in close collaboration with the Kunsthaus Zug as the “in-house artist” for almost twenty years. Through fragile, mostly small, subtle paintings as well as sculptural objects and three-dimensional installations, he continues to explore special features of the museum’s architecture or selected works from its collection. Tuttle poses questions about endurance and continuity, rhythm and repetition in the various cultures of contemporary global society.

invitation card stanley brouwn

Published by Haubrok Foundation, Berlin, 2012, card, 15 × 10.5 cm, English

Price: €24

“Behind the standards put in place for the communication related to his exhibitions—the use of lowercase and Helvetica exclusively, the refusal to reproduce images of his work, to produce (or allow production of) written commentary on the subject of the same work, to appear in the context of a vernissage or even to answer an interview—the artist stanley brouwn builds his identity by way of ellipses. The invitation cards for his solo exhibitions provide a symptomatic example: set almost exclusively in Helvetica, the absence of uppercase, flying in the face of the graphic identity of the gallery or the host institution, they seem impossible to date, give or take twenty years” From Revue Faire – To look at things #4, Céline Chazalviel.

Lynda Morris / Dear Lynda…

Published by White Columns, New York, 2012, 100 pages (cb/w ill.), 21 × 29.7 cm, English

Price: €18 (Out of stock)

Produced on the occasion of the exhibition Lynda Morris / Dear Lynda… at White Columns, New York and Chelsea Space, London, 2012.

An exhibition that considers the ongoing practice of the British curator and writer Lynda Morris. As with the term ‘artist’s artist’ there should perhaps be an additional category of ‘artist’s curators’ for which Morris would be an exemplary figure. Having worked for most of her career in regional British cities (inc. Nottingham and Norwich), Morris’ ongoing advocacy for the social realities and political necessity of art is evident in her most recent major project “Picasso: Peace and Freedom” an exhibition and accompanying book that she organized for Tate Liverpool, England, a project that considered the legacy of Picasso’s involvement in and support of the Peace movement.

Including the work of Art & Language, Gilbert & George, Andre Cadere, John Baldessari, David Lamelas (whose early works Morris appeared in), Richard Hamilton, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Marcel Broodthaers, Gustav Metzger, Stephen McKenna, Nigel Henderson, John Wonnacott, Jeremy Deller, Lucy McKenzie, Marc Camille Chaimowicz, John Stezaker, and more (from the White Columns press release)
