 Laurie Simmons: Big Camera Little Camera
Laurie Simmons: Big Camera Little Camera
$60.00

PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE OCTOBER 12, 2018 Laurie Simmons’s exploration of archetypal gender roles is a topic as potent today as it was in the late 1970s, when she began to develop her mature artistic style by using doll houses, props, and dolls as stand-ins for people and places. Using photography and film, her work investigates the nature of representation, notions of performance, the materiality of daily life, and the contrived stereotypes we all contend with. Her fictional scenes strike a psycholog¬ical chord as they make keen observations about real life. Laurie Simmons: Big Camera/Little Camera spans Simmons’s career to date, from her iconic early black-and-white photographs of female dolls in domestic settings to her most recent monumentally scaled and vibrantly colored portraits. Laurie Simmons: Big Camera Little Camera On view Oct 14, 2018 - Jan 27, 2019 Learn More

Sean Scully: Catalogue Raisonné Volume II: 1980–1989
Sean Scully: Catalogue Raisonné Volume II: 1980–1989
$150.00

Sean Scully Catalogue Raisonné of the Paintings Volume II, 1980–1989 This catalogue, the second volume in a proposed series of five, chronicles Sean Scully’s paintings of the 1980s. Beginning with major breakthrough works early in the decade, it profiles the development of Scully’s mature style as well as his growing success in America and internationally. Scully, a native of Ireland, was educated in England and moved to the United States in 1975. By the early 1980s, he was established in New York and making works that would influence his work years to come. In works both small (Solomon) and large (Heart of Darkness), Scully developed a powerful style of richly painted stripes and shapes with a masterly control of color and strongly built canvases. In an era of low regard for abstract painting, Scully invigorated and reinvented the form to include rich evocations of places, literature and other art forms, and emotions. By the end of the decade, he was universally regarded as one of the most important artists of the second half of the twentieth century. By Marla Price, ed. Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, graphic design by Peter Willberg Learn More

Twerk by Latasha N. Nevada Diggs
Twerk by Latasha N. Nevada Diggs
$8.00

"Poetry. African American Studies. Peformance Studies. TWERK unveils an identity shaped by popular media and history, code switching and cultural inclusivity. The poems, songs, and myths in this long-awaited first book are as rooted in lyric as in innovation, in Black music as in macaronic satire. TWERK evokes paradox, humor, and vulnerability, and it offers myriad avenues fueled by language, idiom, and vernacular. This book asks only that we imagine America as it has always existed, an Americana beyond the English language."

Sophie Calle: The Address Book
Sophie Calle: The Address Book
$29.95

"The Address Book, a key and controversial work in Sophie Calle's oeuvre, lies at the epicenter of many layers of reality and fiction. Having found a lost address book on the street in Paris, Calle copied the pages before returning it anonymously to its owner. She then embarked on a search to come to know this stranger by contacting listed individuals--in essence, following him through the map of his acquaintances. Originally published as a serial in the newspaper Libération over the course of one month, her incisive written accounts with friends, family and colleagues, juxtaposed with photographs, yield vivid subjective impressions of the address book's owner, Pierre D., while also suggesting ever more complicated stories as information is parsed and withheld by the people she encounters. Collaged through a multitude of details--from the banal to the luminous, this fragile and strangely intimate portrait of Pierre D. is a prism through which to see the desire for, and the elusivity of, knowledge. Upon learning of this work and its publication in the newspaper, Pierre D. expressed his anger, and Calle agreed not to republish the work until after his death. Until then, The Address Book had only been described in English--as the work of the character Maria Turner, whom Paul Auster based on Calle in his novel Leviathan; and in Double Game, Calle's monograph which converses with Auster's novel. This is the first trade publication in English of The Address Book (Gemini G.E.L. in Los Angeles released a suite of lithographs modeled on the original tabloid pages from Libération in an edition of 24). The book has the physical weight and feel of an actual address book with a new design of text and images which allow the story to unfold and be savored by the reader."

Hardcover. 104 pages.
