Carol Bove, The Middle Pillar, Karma, 2013

The Middle Pillar: A Retrospective Introduction
In 2004 Carol Bove described her interest in what she called the provocative 'shady places' of display: 'a gradient that starts with a small, personal domestic object and goes through art objects, installation art, site-specific works, environments, installation design, architecture, etc.'. Her use of historical objects and texts belongs to this larger project dedicated to undermining binaries, often the either/or distinctions between site-specific installations and autonomous artworks.
Text by Cathleen Chafee.

Martial Raysse, Martial Raysse 1960-1974, Luxembourg & Dayan, 2013

In spite of his vital contributions to the European Neo-Avant-Garde, French artist Martial Raysse has been conspicuously under-represented in American art critical discourse. He is perhaps best known for early vivid paintings that appropriate images from advertisements, fashion magazines and familiar art masterpieces. With his signature palette of hyper-saturated colors and his unconventional incorporation of found objects and neon tubing on the surface of canvases, Raysse has been viewed until now through the lens of American Pop art – an altogether inadequate perspective on a seminal postwar artist who departed from Pop’s optimism and fascination with celebrity culture to introduce fresh, albeit disturbing, suggestions of real human confusion and growth behind the shiny surface of all things new.

Published on the occasion of the show at Luxembourg and Dayan, May 11 – July 13, 2013.
Include texts by Otto Hahn, Alison Gingeras, and Anaël Pigeat. Designed by Joseph Logan, the catalogue features previously unpublished archival material from the 1960s.

Keith Sandborn, Andy Moses, Underexposed (A Selected History of Neglected Films), Artists Space, 1987

Who Chicago?, Sunderland Arts Centre, Ceolfrith Gallery, 1980

The genesis of this book is an exhibition of the ten artists now widely called "Chicago Imagists" and four of their antecedents. It amply demonstrates that 'during the last fifteen years a unique art has developed in Chicago. It is the product of a group of artists working in association with each other and sharing certain assumptions about the making of art; it is a movement. This group of artists, despite varying individual modes, produces work with a certain common formal and expressive characteristics; it is a style. While this style undoubtedly belongs to a certain tradition and owes seomthing to artistic attitudes prevalent among earlier Chicago artists, it does not resemble anything that came before it, not in Chicago, not elsewhere. 
The interest of this art lies not only in the extraordinary vitality, originality and import of the works themselves, but also in the degree to which apsects of this style have gained currency as art moves into the 80's.' 
(exerpted from introduction essay by Russel Bowman)

Artists in the show: Roger Brown, James Falconer, Art Green, Philip Hanson, Gladys Nilsson, Jim Nutt, Ed Paschke, Christina Ramberg, Suellen Rocca, Barbara Rossi, H. C. Westermann, Karl Wisum, Joseph Yoakum, Ray Yoshida.

François Laruelle, The Concept of Non-Photography, Urbanomic, 2011

Myriads of negatives tell of the world, speaking among themselves, constituting a vast conversation, filling a photosphere that is located nowhere. But one single photo is enough to express the real that all photographers aspire one day to capture, without ever quite succeeding in doing so. Nevertheless, this real cohabits intimately with negatives, with clichés as embedded in our lives as they are imperceptible. Photographs are the thousand flat facets of an ungraspable identity that only shines - and sometimes very faintly - through something else. What more is there to a photo than a curious and prurient glance? And yet it is also a fascinating secret.
The Concept of Non-Photography develops a rigorous new thinking of the photograph in its relation to science, philosophy and art, and introduces the reader to all of the key concepts of Laruelle's 'non-philosophy'.

Felix Gonzales-Torres, Felix Gonzales–Torres, A.R.T. Press, 1994

Interviewed by Tim Rollins, essays by Susan Cahan and Jan Avgikos
 
Felix Gonzales-Torres is best known for installations and public artworks that invite the viewer's direct participation. In this interview Gonzales-Torres talks about his commitment to social change and his understanding of his role as an artist in effecting that change.
 
Gonzalez-Torres: “I wanted to make a show that would disappear completely. It had a lot to do with disappearance and learning. It was also about trying to be a threat to the art-marketing system, and also, to be really honest, it was about being generous to a certain extent. […] Freud said that we rehearse our fears in order to lessen them. In a way this “letting go” of the work – this refusal to make a static form, a monolithic sculpture, in favor of a disappearing, changing, unstable, and fragile form – was an attempt on my part to rehearse my fears of having Ross disappear day by day right in front of my eyes.”

J. Hoberman, Edward Leffingwell, Wait for me at the Bottom of the Pool: the Writings of Jack Smith, Serpent's Tail, 1997

During thirty years of astonishing activity as a filmmaker, photographer and performer, Jack Smith produced a body of creative, antic writing that intersects and transcends the genres of hothouse fantasy, criticism and social comment. Bringing together long unavailable essays, performance scripts, interviews and other material, "Wait for me at the Bottom of the Pool" reveals the ideas and personality of an artist whose distinctive vision has influenced generations of filmmakers and performance artists. With caustic wit, Smith praises the performances of Maria Montez as well as the sculpture of Walter de Maria, examines the cult success of Reefer Madness and the uses of pornography, and discusses the perils of democracy, the evils of property and the police state, art history and architecture.
Contains a lot of drawings.
From the High Risk series.
