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)

What is the role of aesthetic processes in the drawing of the boundaries between nature and culture, humans and things, the animate and inanimate? Structured around the aesthetic processes and effects of animation and mummification, Animism—a companion publication to the long-term exhibition of the same title, brings together artistic and theoretical perspectives that reflect on the boundary between subjects and objects, and the modern anxiety that accompanies the relation between “persons” and “things.”

A Brief History of Invisible Art Ralph Rugoff

Published by CCA Wattis Institute, San Fransisco, 2006, 65 pages (b/w ill.), 15.5 × 22 cm, English

Price: €14

A Brief History of Invisible Art is a fully illustrated catalog with essay by Ralph Rugoff, which brings together artworks from six decades that place a pronounced emphasis on the conceptual and communicative possibilities of the work of art, while bypassing its seeming requirements of visibility and materiality. In surveying this terrain, the exhibition includes works that represent a wide range of aesthetic practices and that engage with surprisingly diverse concerns. Whether underscoring the role of the audience, mocking the theological aura of museum rhetoric or calling attention to the importance of linguistic description in cultural production, these works prompt us to see through the more grandiose distractions of contemporary art and so to think more clearly about its underlying functions.

Featured Artists: Art & Language, Michael Asher, Robert Barry, James Lee Byars, Maurizio Cattelan, Jay Chung, Trisha Donnelly, Tom Friedman, Carsten Höller, Bethan Huws, Bruno Jakob, Yves Klein, Glenn Ligon, Jonathan Monk, Gianni Motti, Andy Warhol.
