Price: €15

Produced on the occasion of the exhibition, Ron Nagle: Lincolnshire Squire at Modern Art, London, 10 September – 18 December 2020.

Mixing traditional materials such as ceramic and porcelain with epoxy resin and catalysed polyurethane, Nagle’s works attain an almost impossible physical quality, their indefinability echoed in the deft wit of their titles, such as Vapor Caper or Curly Centurion. This catalogue illustrates 22 new works by the artist and features an essay by Dan Fox, former Frieze magazine Editor-at-Large.

TheStars Richard Tuttle

Published by Modern Art, London, 2020, 260 pages (colour ill.), 16.5 × 22.5 cm, English

Price: €44

Produced on the occasion of Richard Tuttle’s exhibition TheStars at Modern Art, London, 1 October – 21 November, 2020.

Bearing a clear resemblance to some of Tuttle’s early work from the 1970s, such as his iconic Rope Piece (1974), which came to typify his bold approach to scale, these new works are made predominantly from plywood, paint, paper and metal wire, each sits atop its own hand-made shelf, annotated by Tuttle with its particular title, and secured to the wall with a single nail. The publication documents the new work alongside a series of Tuttle’s corresponding poems.
