The Art Of Protest
(RIPPON, JO). Imagine!, I00200604, 2020. 10 x 12 in., 176 pages. Hardbound. New/No Jacket - As Issued.
Presented in collaboration with Amnesty International, this stunning collection of more than a hundred posters charts a visual journey across more than a century of political and social activism.
From the suffragettes of the early twentieth century to the upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s to contemporary, social-media-driven demonstrations of dissent and resistance, this illustrative history features iconic art from the archives of Amnesty International, work by world-renowned artists, and spontaneous posters from short-lived print collectives and activists on the ground.
The Art of Protest covers key campaigns, global and local, including the refugee and climate crises, women’s empowerment, nuclear disarmament, LGBTQ activism, Black Lives Matter, and issues around war and the misuse of the world’s resources. These are images that have pushed boundaries as they give voice to the marginalized and confront those who would deny people their rights to peace and equality. 9781623545055 Inventory Number: I00200604$29.99 InquireFiled Under:
MELVIN EDWARDS: LYNCH FRAGMENTS
(EDWARDS, MELVIN) Edited by Adriano Pedrosa, Rodrigo Moura. Text by Hamid Irbouh, Rebecca Wolff, Renata Bittencourt, Rodrigo Moura. MASP, I00200603. 7 x 10 in. / 256 pages. Hardbound. New/No Jacket - As Issued.
Ominous and angular, the acclaimed steel sculptures of Melvin Edwards convey racial violence with edgy ingenuity
This volume brings together a significant selection of works from the titular series by the New York–based sculptor Melvin Edwards (born 1937), created between 1963 and 2016, comprising more than 50 years of what is considered the artist's central body of work.
Edwards started to produce the Fragments series when he lived in Los Angeles, at a crucial time of the civil rights movement in the United States. The works directly reference the practice of lynching after the abolition of slavery. Denouncing violence against African Americans, Edwards created these steel sculptures as forms between bodies and machines that can also be interpreted as weapons, given the sense of violence and danger suggested by their blunt, angular and protruding shapes. The selection of works in this book reflects the multiplicity of thematic interests and the formal variations across the series. 9788531000515 Inventory Number: I00200603
Collecting Black Studies: The Art of Material Culture at the University of Texas at Austin
Lise Ragbir (Editor), Cherise Smith (Editor). University of Texas Press, I00200601.
Book of the day > Collecting Black Studies: The Art of Material Culture at the University of Texas at Austin. “What began as an effort to prevent the neglect and potential loss of hundreds of African objects at the University of Texas at Austin has evolved into one of the most significant collections on campus. The art collections at Black Studies were born from the John L. Warfield Center for African and African American Studies’ Art and Archive Initiative, under the leadership of Cherise Smith, Omi L. Jones, and Edmund T. Gordon. Today Black Studies at the University of Texas boasts approximately 900 objects from sub-Saharan Africa, over 200 contemporary works from African American and Afro-Caribbean artists, and more than 100 pieces jointly held with other collecting entities on campus, adding a diverse richness to the overall collections. Collecting Black Studies gathers and presents these holdings—including costumes, jewelry, paintings, sculptures, works on paper, and photography—and prominently features five Black artists whose work is particularly significant. Scholars and curators examine how John Biggers, Michael Ray Charles, Christina Coleman, Angelbert Metoyer, and Deborah Roberts—artists with deep relationships to Texas—contributed to the Black Studies collections, to art history, and to the culture of our state and beyond.” 9781477320051 Inventory Number: I00200601

Further adventures in dystopian and fantastical cities with Giacomo Costa, virtuoso of digitally manipulated, ultra-detailed photography
Since the mid-1990s, when he debuted his Agglomerati series, Florentine photographer Giacomo Costa (born 1970) has been creating large-format photographs that employ Hollywood blockbuster–style digital techniques to portray unreal, fantastical cityscapes straight out of science fiction.
In 2009 Damiani published The Chronicles of Time, with an introduction by Norman Foster. By turns historical and contemporary, real and imagined, the images in The Chronicles of Time could be the result of natural catastrophe or nuclear war. His latest monograph, A Helpful Guide to Nowhere, presents his latest fascinating, majestic and terrifying images of ominous yet nondidactic dystopias and cityscapes, focusing on work from the last ten years, with numerous previously unpublished images.

JOAN MITCHELL: I CARRY MY LANDSCAPES AROUND WITH ME
(MITCHELL, JOAN). David Zwirner Books, I00200526. 2020. Hardbound. Artist Monograph. New.
“I carry my landscapes around with me focuses on American abstract artist Joan Mitchell’s large-scale multipanel works from the 1960s through the 1990s.
Mitchell’s exploration of the possibilities afforded by combining two to five large canvases allowed her to simultaneously create continuity and rupture, while opening up a panoramic expanse referencing landscapes or the memory of landscapes.
Mitchell established a singular approach to abstraction over the course of her career. Her inventive reinterpretation of the traditional figure-ground relationship and synesthetic use of color set her apart from her peers, resulting in intuitively constructed and emotionally charged compositions that alternately evoke individuals, observations, places, and points in time. Art critic John Yau lauded her paintings as “one of the towering achievements of the postwar period.”
Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at David Zwirner New York in 2019, this book offers a unique opportunity to explore the range of scale and formal experimentation of this innovative area of Mitchell’s extensive body of work. It not only features reproductions of each painting in this selection as a whole, but also numerous details that allow an intimate understanding of the surface texture and brushwork. In the complementing essays, Suzanne Hudson examines boundaries, borders, and edges in Mitchell’s multipanel paintings, beginning with her first work of this kind, The Bridge (1956), considering them as both physical and conceptual objects; Robert Slifkin discusses the dynamics of repetition and energy in the artist’s paintings, in relation to works by Monet and Willem de Kooning, among others."

PHILIP GUSTON NOW
(GUSTON, PHILIP) Text by Harry Cooper, Mark Godfrey, Alison de Lima Greene, Kate Nesin. Contributions by Jennifer Roberts, Tacita Dean, Peter Fischli, Trenton Doyle Hancock, William Kentridge, Glenn Ligon, David Reed, Dana Schutz, Amy Sillman, Art Spiegelman, Rirkrit Tiravanija. D.A.P./National Gallery Of Art, I00200521, 2020. 9.5 x 11.5 in, 280 pages. Hardbound. New.
A long-overdue retrospective of Philip Guston’s influential work, from social realism to abstract expressionism to tragicomic, cartoony figuration
Philip Guston—perhaps more than any other figure in recent memory—has given contemporary artists permission to break the rules and paint what, and how, they want. His nonlinear career, embrace of “high” and “low” sources, and constant aesthetic reinvention defy easy categorization, and his 1968 figurative turn is one of 20th-century art’s most legendary conversion narratives. “I was feeling split, schizophrenic. The war, what was happening in America, the brutality of the world. What kind of man am I, sitting at home, reading magazines, going into a frustrated fury about everything—and then going into my studio to adjust a red to a blue?”
And so Guston’s cross-hatched abstractions gave way to large, cartoonlike canvases populated by lumpy, lugubrious figures and personal symbols in a palette of meaty pinks. That Guston continued mining this vein for the rest of his life—despite initial bewilderment from his peers—reinforced his reputation as an artist’s artist; he has become hugely influential as contemporary art has followed Guston into its own antic figurative turn.
Published to accompany the first retrospective museum exhibition of Guston’s career in 15 years, Philip Guston Now includes a definitive chronology reflecting many new discoveries. It highlights the voices of artists of our day who have been inspired by the full range of his work: Tacita Dean, Peter Fischli, Trenton Doyle Hancock, William Kentridge, Glenn Ligon, David Reed, Dana Schutz, Amy Sillman, Art Spiegelman and Rirkrit Tiravanija. Essays trace the influences, interests and evolution of this singular force in modern and contemporary art—including a close look at the 1960s and ’70s, when Guston gradually abandoned abstraction, returning to the figure and to current history but with a personal voice, by turns comic and apocalyptic, that resonates today more than ever. 9781942884569 Inventory Number: I00200521
CLAUDIA ANDUJAR: THE YANOMAMI STRUGGLE
(ANDUJAR, CLAUDIA) Texts by Thyago Nogueira, Curator of the exhibition, and Bruce Albert, Anthropologist. Published by Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain, I00200520, 2020. 9 x 12 in., 336 pages. Paperback. New/No Jacket - As Issued.
This book is published to accompany “Claudia Andujar, The Yanomami Struggle” at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris, one of the most ambitious exhibitions devoted to the Brazilian photographer.

Claudia Andujar features over 200 black-and-white and color photographs, historical documents, and drawings produced by Yanomami artists. The fruit of several years’ research into the photographer’s archives, this exhibition catalog reflects the two inseparable aspects of Andujar’s approach: aesthetic and political. This catalog also shows Andujar’s significant contribution to art photography and the essential role she has played in the defense of Yanomami rights and the forest where they live. 9782869251540 Inventory Number: I00200520
RICHARD PRINCE: COWBOY
(PRINCE, RICHARD) edited by Robert M. Rubin. Prestel, I00200519. 9 x 12 in, 480 pages. Paperback. New/No Jacket - As Issued.
A visually stunning compilation of Richard Prince’s 40-year-long project of examining the cowboy as an American symbol.
In the mid-1970s, Richard Prince was an aspiring painter working in Time Inc.’s tear sheet department clipping texts for magazine writers. After he removed the articles, he was left with advertisements: glossy pictures of commodities, models, and other objects of desire. He began to re-photograph the advertisements, cropping and enlarging them, and selling the artworks as his own. Prince paid particular attention to the motif of the cowboy, often depicted in advertisements for Marlboro cigarettes. He had an explosive effect on the art world, provoking lawsuits and setting auction records for contemporary photography. More recently, he has revisited copies of TIME from the 1980s and 90s using contemporary technology to produce a new series of work, extending his preoccupation with the cowboy in the era of Instagram to demonstrate that the stakes around originality, appropriation, and truth in advertising are as high as ever. This book showcases how Prince has mined the mythological American West within the artwork he produced during the last four decades. Each chapter contains a brief introduction, followed by artwork by Prince, and concludes with a section of related ephemera, relics, and fragments that aid in contextualizing Prince’s work. Once again challenging the conventional limits of photography, Prince is reigniting the debate he sparked forty years ago through the lens of cowboys and the West. 9783791359687 Inventory Number: I00200519
HELLO MUDDAH, HELLO FADDAH: ANDY SWEET'S SUMMER CAMP 1977
(SWEET, ANDY) Edited with foreword by Brett Sokol. Introduction by Naomi Fry. Letter16 Press, I00200515, 2020. 9 x 9 in.. Hardbound. New.
The golden days of tube socks, bunk beds, marshmallows and first crushes: 1970s summer camp, from the photographer behind Shtetl in the Sun
A companion volume to Shtetl in the Sun, Andy Sweet's love letter to the colorful Jewish community of late 1970s South Beach, Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah chronicles the summer of 1977 at Camp Mountain Lake, serving up a knowing portrait of the era's fashion, pop culture and frank expressions of adolescent sexuality.
Set against the cherished rituals of camp life—from the parade of trunks as 300 campers arrive at Mountain Lake's rural North Carolina setting to the end-of-August Dionysian frenzy of "Color War"—Sweet's photos tell a classic coming-of-age story, one full of awkward crushes, intense friendships and the kind of deep truths that emerge over late-night, campfire-toasted marshmallows.
As the camp's photography instructor and one of its counselors, Sweet brings an intimate familiarity to his subject, capturing the rhythms of the camp's daily life through both posed compositions and spontaneous images. By turns nostalgic, poignant and laugh-out-loud funny, this collection includes a foreword by award-winning Miami arts journalist Brett Sokol and an introductory essay by New Yorker staff writer Naomi Fry. 9780989381192 Inventory Number: I00200515
BILL HENSON: THE LIGHT FADES BUT THE GODS REMAIN
(HENSON, BILL). Thames & Hudson, I00200514, 2020. 11 in x 13.2 in, 168 pages. Hardbound. New.
Over thirty years have passed since Bill Henson made his iconic Untitled 1985/86 series. These mesmerizing photographs cast a hazy procession of people and places in suburbia, interspersed with dreamlike vignettes of Egyptian structures.
Now, Henson revisits his home suburb to create new work. While these photographs return to the same cul-de-sacs as the Untitled series, they show an environment that appears to have slipped out of linear time. Henson’s new images are sumptuous and resplendent in their grandeur, offering a view of what is just down the street, but seems to come from another age. Together, the two series provide a glimpse into Henson’s brilliant mind as he ponders the passing of time.
The Light Fades but the Gods Remain, celebrates an extraordinary artist at two stages in his career. Casting suburbia in an entirely new light, this publication is a captivating meditation on growing up. 9781760760434 Inventory Number: I00200514
DOROTHEA LANGE: WORDS & PICTURES
(LANGE, DOROTHEA) Edited with text by Sarah Hermanson Meister. Text by Julie Ault, Kimberly Juanita Brown, River Encalada Bullock, Sam Contis, Jennifer Greenhill, Lauren Kroiz, Sally Mann, Sandra Phillips, Wendy Red Star, Christina Sharpe, Robert Slifkin, Rebecca Solnit, Tess Taylor. MoMA, I00200513, 2020. 9 x 11 in. Hardbound. New.
Toward the end of her life, Dorothea Lange reflected, “All photographs—not only those that are so-called ‘documentary’... can be fortified by words.” Though Lange's career is widely heralded, this connection between words and pictures has received scant attention. A committed social observer, Lange paid sharp attention to the human condition, conveying stories of everyday life through her photographs and the voices they drew in. Published in conjunction with the first major MoMA exhibition of Lange’s in 50 years, Dorothea Lange: Words & Pictures brings fresh attention to iconic works from the collection together with lesser-known photographs—from early street photography to projects on the criminal justice system. The work’s complex relationships to words show Lange’s interest in art’s power to deliver public awareness and to connect to intimate narratives in the world.
Presenting Lange’s work in its diverse contexts—photobooks, Depression-era government reports, newspapers, magazines, poems—along with the voices of contemporary artists, writers and thinkers, the book offers a nuanced understanding of Lange’s career, and new means for considering words and pictures today. An introductory essay by curator Sarah Hermanson Meister is followed by sections organized according to “words” from a range of historical contexts: Lange’s landmark photobook An American Exodus, Life and Aperture magazines, an illustrated guide to minimize racism in jury trials, and many more. These contexts are punctuated with original contributions from a distinguished group of contemporary writers, artists and critical thinkers, including Julie Ault, Kimberly Juanita Brown, River Encalada Bullock, Sam Contis, Jennifer Greenhill, Lauren Kroiz, Sally Mann, Sandra Phillips, Wendy Red Star, Christina Sharpe, Rebecca Solnit, Robert Slifkin and Tess Taylor. 9781633451049 Inventory Number: I00200513
THE ADIDAS ARCHIVE. THE FOOTWEAR COLLECTION.
(ADIDAS) foreword by designer Jacques Chassaing. Taschen, I00200512, 2020. 12.5 x 11.7 in, 644 pages. Hardbound. New/No Jacket - As Issued.
100 years ago the brothers Adolf ("Adi") and Rudolf Dassler made their first pair of sports shoes. Hundreds of groundbreaking designs, epic moments, and star-studded collabs later, this book presents the first visual review of the adidas shoe through more than 350 models including never-before-seen prototypes and one-of-a-kind originals.
To further develop and tailor his products to athletes’ specific needs, Dassler asked them to return their worn footwear when no longer needed, with all the shoes eventually ending up in his attic (to this day, many athletes return their shoes to adidas, often as a thank you after winning a title or breaking a world record). This collection now makes up the "adidas archive", one of the largest, if not the largest archive of any sports goods manufacturer in the world—which photographers Christian Habermeier and Sebastian Jäger have been visually documenting in extreme detail for years.
Shot using the highest reproduction techniques, these images reveal the fine details as much as the stains, the tears, the repair tape, the grass smudges, the faded autographs. It’s all here, unmanipulated and captured in extremely high resolution—and with it comes to light the personal stories of each individual wearer. We encounter the shoes worn by West Germany’s football team during its “miraculous” 1954 World Cup win and those worn by Kathrine Switzer when she ran the Boston Marathon in 1967, before women were officially allowed to compete; custom models for stars from Madonna to Lionel Messi; collabs with the likes of Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Raf Simons, Stella McCartney, Parley for the Oceans or Yohji Yamamoto; as well as the brand’s trailblazing techniques and materials, like its pioneering use of plastic waste that is intercepted from beaches and coastal communities.
Accompanied by a foreword by designer Jacques Chassaing and expert texts, each picture tells us the why and the how, but also conveys the driving force behind adidas. What we discover goes beyond mere design; in the end, these are just shoes, worn out by their users who have loved them—but they are also first-hand witnesses of our sports, design, and culture history, from the beginnings of the Dassler brothers and the founding of adidas until today. 9783836571951 Inventory Number: I00200512$150.00 InquireFiled Under:

Lippard, Louise Allison Cort, Fariba Bogzaran, Isamu Noguchi, Alyssa Ballard, Rene Bustamante, Glenn Adamson, Rick Yoshimoto. Interview by Rita Lawrence. Blunk Books/Dent-De-Leone, I00200511, 2020. 8 x 10 in. Hardbound. New/No Jacket - As Issued.
The first survey of the ceramics and sculptures of beloved Californian artist JB Blunk, in a handsome foil-stamped hardcover volume
This is the first publication to explore the entire oeuvre of the great American sculptor JB Blunk, with previously unseen examples of his work in stone, clay, painting and jewelry. The design beautifully combines archival images of Blunk’s work in situ, and his studio, with color plates of newly photographed pieces. In an essay, Lucy R. Lippard discusses Blunk’s reverence for ancient art and places, while Smithsonian Curator of Ceramics Louise Allison Cort details Blunk’s formative years in Japan. Glenn Adamson, Senior Scholar at the Yale Center for British Art, contributes an essay that explores the essence of Blunk himself along with his artwork.
Blunk maintained a Midwestern sensibility of hard work and plainspokenness throughout his career, with little regard for the distinction between art, craft and design. Rather, he was guided by the materials with which he worked to create large sculptural pieces that seem to exude their own powerful energy unique to organic matter. 9781907908552 Inventory Number: I00200511
(JONZE, SPIKE) Written by Spike Jonze, Text by Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz . Rizzoli, I00200508, 2020. 9.25 x 10.75 in. Hardbound. New/No Jacket - As Issued.
The first book of photography to be published by the Academy Award-winning film director and photographer Spike Jonze. Will appeal to every fan of Beastie Boys and golden-era hip hop, as well as photography and Spike Jonze's own focused audiences.
Spike Jonze and Beastie Boys met for the first time in Los Angeles in 1991, when Jonze went out to photograph the band for the cover of Dirt magazine. A connection formed between the three MCs and the young photographer, which has lasted throughout their careers.
Almost thirty years later--published to coincide with the release on Apple+ of a new documentary, Beastie Boys Story--this book collects for the first time more than two hundred of Spike Jonze's personal photographs of his time spent with the group. Edited and with an afterword by Jonze, and including new writing by Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz themselves, this book shows an intimate look at the greatest act of the hip-hop generation in their truest colors as only a close friend could see them--from performing live onstage to writing together at Mike's apartment; getting into character for a video to dressing up as old men to hit the basketball court; recording music in the studio to goofing around on the streets of New York.
From the music video for "Sabotage" to the cover of the Sounds of Science album, Spike Jonze is responsible for some of the most iconic images of the band ever made. But here, the emphasis is on the candid, the unexpected, and the real--just pictures of friends who like making stuff together. 9780847868384 Inventory Number: I00200508
ADRIAN GHENIE: PAINTINGS 2014 TO 2019

Ever since his spectacular exhibition at the Romanian Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennial in 2015 at the latest, Adrian Ghenie has been known to a broader art audience as one of the most interesting and idiosyncratic painters of his generation. His works—painted in oil, etched, troweled, or thrown—have already found their way to the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Tate Modern in London, and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. On the art market they are close on the heels of auction records. Still, neither Gehnie’s subjects nor his technique accommodate general taste: the most important source of his collage-like compositions is the history of the “century of humiliation,” as Ghenie calls the twentieth century—its criminals and victims. These are joined by positive heroes such as van Gogh and Darwin, along with self-portraits. 9783775743525 Inventory Number: I00200507

In Picture Summer on Kodak Film, a poem by two sisters echoes across Fulford’s photographs, comprised of recurring motifs: time, test strips, refracted light, rainbow colour, and distortion through shadows. Characters and places are repeated in kaleidoscopic compositions throughout this vivid sequence. Though taken across the world (in Canada, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Nepal, Thailand, USA and Vietnam), these photographs come together to create a singular visual language: one bright, timeless, fictional place. A place imbued with the unexpected beauty, humor and meaning, that one has come to expect from Jason Fulford. 9781912339747 Inventory Number: I00200506
JUSTINE KURLAND: GIRL PICTURES
(KURLAND, JUSTINE) Story by Rebecca Bengal. Aperture, I00200505, 2020. 9 x 11 in. Hardbound. New/No Jacket - As Issued.
The North American frontier is an enduring symbol of romance, rebellion, escape, and freedom. At the same time, it's a profoundly masculine myth — cowboys, outlaws, Beat poets. Photographer Justine Kurland reclaimed this space in her now-iconic series of images of teenage girls, taken between 1997 and 2002 on the road in the American wilderness. "I staged the girls as a standing army of teenaged runaways in resistance to patriarchal ideals," says Kurland. She portrays girls as fearless and free, tender and fierce. They hunt and explore, braid each other's hair, and swim in sun-dappled watering holes—paying no mind to the camera (or the viewer). Their world is at once lawless and utopian, a frontier Eden in the wild spaces just outside of suburban infrastructure and ideas. Twenty years on, the series still resonates, published here in its entirety and including newly discovered, unpublished images. 9781597114745 Inventory Number: I00200505
CECIL BEATON’S BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS
(BEATON, CECIL) Text by Robin Muir.. National Portrait Gallery, I00200504, 2020. 9.75 x 11 in.. Hardbound. New/No Jacket - As Issued.
The stylish and extravagant world of the “Bright Young Things” of 1920s and ’30s London, seen through the eye of renowned British photographer Cecil Beaton
In 1920s and ‘30s Britain, Cecil Beaton used his camera and his larger-than-life personality to mingle with that flamboyant and rebellious group of artists, writers, socialites and partygoers who became known as the “Bright Young Things.” Famously fictionalized by the likes of Evelyn Waugh (in Vile Bodies), Anthony Powell and Henry Green, these men and women cut a dramatic swathe through the epoch and embodied its roaring spirit.
In a series of themed chapters, covering Beaton’s first self-portraits and earliest sitters to his time at Cambridge and as principle society photographer for Vogue and Vanity Fair, over 50 leading figures who sat for Beaton are profiled and the dazzling parties, pageants and balls of the period are brought to life. Among this glittering cast are Beaton’s socialite sisters Baba and Nancy Beaton, Stephen Tennant, Siegfried Sassoon, Evelyn Waugh and Daphne du Maurier. Beaton’s photographs are complemented by a wide range of letters, drawings, book jackets and ephemera, and contextualised by artworks created by those in his circle, including Christopher Wood, Rex Whistler and Henry Lamb. 9781855147720 Inventory Number: I00200504
TAUBA AUERBACH: S v Z
(AUERBACH, TAUBA) Introduction and text by Joseph Becker, Jenny Gheith, Linda Dalrymple Henderson. Afterword by Neal Benezra. D.A.P./SFMOMA, I00200501, 2020. 8.25 x 11.75 in. / 256 pgs. Hardbound. New/No Jacket - As Issued.
Part artist's book, part exhibition catalog, this book chronicles Tauba Auerbach’s multimedia syntheses of abstraction, science, graphic design and typography
Tauba Auerbach studies the boundaries of perception through an art and design practice grounded in math, science and craft. Published in conjunction with the first major survey of the artist’s work, this volume, designed by Auerbach in collaboration with David Reinfurt, spans 16 years of her career, highlighting her interest in concepts such as duality and its alternatives, interconnectedness, rhythm and four-dimensional geometry.
Encapsulating Auerbach’s longstanding consideration of symmetry, texture and logic, the title S v Z offers a framework for this volume’s typeface, design and structure.

MAUDE ARSENAULT: ENTANGLED
(ARSENAULT, MAUDE). Deadbeat Club, I00200430, 2020. 9.4 x 12.25 in.. Paperback. New/No Jacket - As Issued.
Maude Arsenault’s Entangled encapsulates a pivotal moment for her work, representing a shift in perspective and personal responsibility. “After years dedicated to creating glorified images of women,” she says of her success in fashion photography, “I came to question my role and influence in the transmission of models of femininity.” Albeit informed by a progressive, non-binary upbringing, this introspection is ultimately necessary now – in the context of motherhood as she raises three children including a young woman.
When speaking about Entangled, Arsenault invokes the French word carcan – meaning “ploy,” or “ambush,” or “ideological trap” – to explain the underlying motivation for making the spare and evocative pictures in this debut monograph. By which she means that becoming an adult and a parent have given her distance and perspective on the cultural demands made on the bodies and societal roles of young women, and particularly on life choices which have been constricted or even foreordained. Arsenault calls the work “a poem, an ode, a shout out,” and one senses that the quiet power of the book lies in contradictions still unresolved even as the author gains in experience and independence. “I feel often trapped in the person I have been trying to be my entire life,” she says in a touching and revealing statement, one that perfectly echoes the finely calibrated tensions and the tentative triumphs evoked in these pages. “Now I stand, shaky but alive, looking away at my world as a female with the best possible hope.”

(SEPUYA, PAUL MPAGI) Interview with the artist by Wassan Al-Khudhairi. Contributions by Malik Gaines, Lucy Gallun, Ariel Goldberg, Evan Moffitt, and Grace Wales Bonner. APERTURE, I00200428, 2020. 8 x 10 in. / 96 pages. Paperback. New/No Jacket - As Issued.
Paul Mpagi Sepuya presents the work of one of the most prominent up-and-coming photographers working today. Sepuya makes photographs of friends, artists, collaborators, and himself. He chal¬lenges and deconstructs traditional portraiture by way of collage, layering, fragmentation, mirror imagery, and the perspective of a Black, queer gaze. Although the creation of artist books has been a long-standing part of his practice, Paul Mpagi Sepuya is the first publication of his work to be released widely, co-published with the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis on the occasion of a major solo exhibition. 9781597114806 Inventory Number: I00200428
WRITING THE FUTURE: BASQUIAT AND THE HIP-HOP GENERATION
(BASQUIAT, JEAN-MICHEL) Edited by Liz Munsell, Greg Tate. Text by J. Faith Almiron, Dakota DeVos, Hua Hsu, Carlo McCormick. MFA Publications, I00200424, 2020. 9.5 x 10.75 in. Hardbound. New/No Jacket - As Issued.
How hip-hop culture and graffiti electrified the art of Jean-Michel Basquiat and his contemporaries in 1980s New York.
In the early 1980s, art and writing labeled as graffiti began to transition from New York City walls and subway trains onto canvas and into art galleries. Young artists who freely sampled from their urban experiences and their largely Black, Latinx and immigrant histories infused the downtown art scene with expressionist, pop and graffiti-inspired compositions.
Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960–88) became the galvanizing, iconic frontrunner of this transformational and insurgent movement in contemporary American art, which resulted in an unprecedented fusion of creative energies that defied longstanding racial divisions. Writing the Future features Basquiat’s works in painting, sculpture, drawing, video, music and fashion, alongside works by his contemporaries—and sometimes collaborators—A-One, ERO, Fab 5 Freddy, Futura, Keith Haring, Kool Koor, LA2, Lady Pink, Lee Quiñones, Rammellzee and Toxic. Throughout the 1980s, these artists fueled new directions in fine art, design and music, reshaping the predominantly white art world and driving the now-global popularity of hip-hop culture.
Writing the Future, published to accompany a major exhibition, contextualizes Basquiat’s work in relation to his peers associated with hip-hop culture. It also marks the first time Basquiat’s extensive, robust and reflective portraiture of his Black and Latinx friends and fellow artists has been given prominence in scholarship on his oeuvre. With contributions from Carlo McCormick, Liz Munsell, Hua Hsu, J. Faith Almiron and Greg Tate, Writing the Future captures the energy, inventiveness and resistance unleashed when hip-hop hit the city.

EVA HESSE AND HANNAH WILKE: EROTIC ABSTRACTION
(HESSE, EVA; WILKE, HANNAH) Text by Eleanor Nairne and Jo Applin and Anne Wagner, Contribution by Amy Tobin. Rizzoli, I00042120. 2020. 12 x 10 in. Hardbound. New/No Jacket - As Issued.
This exhibition and accompanying book offers the first opportunity to appreciate the resonances between the studio practices of Eva Hesse and Hannah Wilke. Both artists found themselves drawn to unconventional materials, such as latex, plastics, erasers, and laundry lint, which they used to make work that was viscerally related to the body. They shared an interest in repetition to amplify the absurdity of their work. These repeated forms--whether Hesse's spiraling breast or Wilke's labial fold--sought to confront the phallo-centricism of twentieth-century sculpture with a texture that might capture a more intimate, psychologically charged experience. Eleanor Nairne, the curator of the exhibition, writes the lead essay, followed by texts by Jo Applin and Anne Wagner. An extensive chronology by Amy Tobin includes primary-source materials, which bring a new history of how both artists' work sits in relation to the wider New York scene. Also included are excerpts of both artists' writing. 9780847868100 Inventory Number: I00042120

NERI OXMAN: MATERIAL ECOLOGY
(OXMAN, NERI) Edited with text by Paola Antonelli. Text by Anna Burckhardt, Hadas A. Steiner. Museum of Modern Art, New York, I00041520. 9.5 x 12 in. / 192 pgs / 220 color. Paperback. New/No Jacket - As Issued.
The first survey on the interdisciplinary biodesign genius of Neri Oxman, pioneer of "material ecology
Throughout her 20-year career, Neri Oxman has invented not only new ideas for materials, buildings and construction processes, but also new frameworks for interdisciplinary—and interspecies—collaborations. She coined the term “material ecology” to describe her process of producing techniques and objects informed by the structural, systemic and aesthetic wisdom of nature, from the shells of crustaceans to the flow of human breathing.
Groundbreaking for its solid technological and scientific basis, its rigorous and daring experimentation, its visionary philosophy and its unquestionable attention to formal elegance, Oxman’s work operates at the intersection of biology, engineering, architecture and artistic design, material science and computer science.
This book—designed by Irma Boom and published to accompany a midcareer retrospective of Oxman’s work—highlights the interdisciplinary nature of the designer’s practice. It demonstrates how Oxman’s contributions allow us to question and redefine the idea of modernism—a concept in constant evolution—and of organic design. Some of the projects featured in the book and exhibition include the Silk Pavilion, which harnesses silkworms' ability to generate a 3-D cocoon out of a single thread silk in order to create architectural constructions; Aguahoja, a water-based fabrication platform that prints structures made out of different biopolymers; and Glass, an additive manufacturing technology for 3-D printing optically transparent glass structures at architectural dimensions. 9781633451056 Inventory Number: I00041520

“They were like hippie acid freak drag queens, which is always a good thing!!” — John Waters
The Cockettes were an acid-fueled, experimental, hippie collective performance troupe who, through their theatricality, costume, and communal living, created the singular “High Drag” performance genre known as Gender Fuck.
The influence of the Cockettes on American underground culture is present in every glittery sequin and candy-colored coiffure gracing our daily lives. Birthed in an LSD bathed commune in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district in the fall of 1969, The Cockettes were a fever dream of sexual freedom and expression. They granted themselves names and identities that reflected their inner nature then put it all on the stage with elaborate costumes in anarchic musical productions. Gay, straight, bisexual, pansexual—The Cockettes were EVERYTHING. The photos here are shared from museums, magazines, private collections, and the archives of founding and long-time Cockette, Fayette Hauser.
Notable photographers whose work is represented in these pages: Mary Ellen Mark, Peter Hujar, Clay Geerdes, Bud Lee, Robert Altman, David Wise, Michael Zagaris, Roger Anderson, Gilles Larrain, Scott Runyon, Blair Paltridge, Jack Mitchell, and Wendy Mukluk.

(JULY, MIRANDA) Introduction by Julia Bryan-Wilson. Texts by Carrie Brownstein, David Byrne, Spike Jonze, Sheila Heti, Hans Ulrich Obrist. Prestel, I00041320. 2020. Hardbound. New/No Jacket - As Issued.
The work of Miranda July—the most impressively cross-disciplinary artist of her generation—is brought into focus in this mid-career retrospective.
From her early rarely seen Riot Grrrl-influenced fanzines and performances to a career that has produced seminal films, fiction, sculptures, public art, and even a smartphone app, Miranda July has proven adept at articulating the poignancy and humor of the human plight while also achieving enormous acclaim along the way. This chronological retrospective includes July’s performance and video projects, award-winning films, digital multimedia, and written pieces which make clear the multidimensionality of her work. The book includes photography, stills, and archival ephemera and is narrated by friends, collaborators, curators, assistants, and audience members including David Byrne, Spike Jonze, Lena Dunham, Carrie Brownstein, and Hans Ulrich Obrist, as well as July herself. This behind-the-scenes commentary reveals an intimate perspective on the process, struggles, and grit involved in forging one’s own path. What emerges is just how singular her voice is—from a movie narrated by an injured cat to a performance that builds an intentional community; from sculpture that engages the public to an interfaith charity shop in a London department store. July may be impossible to categorize, but the importance of her work and her status as an essential cultural icon with wide-ranging appeal is irrefutable.

Celebrating more than 60 years of intimate portraiture by David Hockney
Published to accompany a major international exhibition, David Hockney: Drawing from Life features Hockney’s drawings from the 1950s to the present day, and focuses on his depictions of himself and a small group of sitters close to him: his muse, Celia Birtwell; his mother, Laura Hockney; and his friends, the curator, Gregory Evans, and master printer, Maurice Payne. In his portrait drawings of these figures, Hockney tries out new stylistic experiments and expresses his admiration for his artistic predecessors, from Holbein to Picasso.
Featuring 150 beautifully reproduced works from public and private collections across the world, this publication traces the trajectory of Hockney’s drawing practice by examining how he has revisited these five figures throughout his career. Highlights include a series of new portraits, colored pencil drawings created in Paris in the early 1970s, composite Polaroid portraits from the 1980s and a selection of drawings from an intense period of self-scrutiny during the 1980s when the artist created a self-portrait every day for two months. 9781855147973 Inventory Number: I00041220
Fucked Up + Photocopied: 20th Anniversary Edition

This edition celebrates the 20th anniversary of this iconic collection and features a new introduction & a vibrant red cover.
Raw, brazen and totally intense, Fucked Up + Photocopied is a collection of frenetic flyers produced for the American punk scene between 1977 and 1985. Many were created by the musicians themselves and demonstrate the emphasis within the punk scene on individuality and the manic urge of its members to create things new. Images were compiled out of whatever material could be found, often photocopied and, still warm, stapled to the nearest telephone pole to warn the world about next week’s gig.
One glance and you can sense the fury of live performances by bands such as Black Flag, the Dead Kennedys and The Minutemen, and, through the subtext the reader is exposed to the psyche of a generation of musicians stripped bare: The Germs, J.F.A, NOFX, X, The Circle Jerks, Devo, The Exploited, The Screamers, The Cramps, The Dils, The Avengers and more. 9783943330434 Inventory Number: I00040920

DEBAUCHED: WITCHERY AND DEVILRY VOL. 1 (1ST SPELL)
S.S.C. GRIM ROAR (Sweden), I00040620. 2020. Hardbound. New/No Jacket - As Issued.
During the height of the turned-on 1960s and '70s Occult explosion, even the under-the-counter men's magazines got in on the act and began a surreal exploration of the haunting netherworld of Witchcraft and Satanism. This monumental art book reveals a world of diabolical smut that was so compelling and obscure that many people today would question whether or not the magazines were real or just an elaborate and detailed modern photo editing invention.
A few salacious titles and images on the internet sparked imaginations, and strongly inspired bands in the doom/black/heavy metal genre, eventually these alluring images found their way to record covers and T-shirts, but mostly remaining shadowy, mysterious, and elusive. Magazines so impossible to hunt down that their very existence seemed an urban myth. Well, they are real and they are spectacular! These magazines are in fact, out there in the world. They are collecting dust in attics, basements, and garages. Hidden away from sight. Unsavory treasures deemed too filthy and then forgotten by their lustful owners.
This massive 384 pages deluxe hardcover book is a glimpse into a vast and shocking world that remains virtually unknown and unexplored. These artifacts come from a bygone era promoting sexual revolution and freedom with overt and unholy occult themes. If you have any issues with hardcore witchcraft and Satanism, body hair or nudity, don't pick this book up and quickly get it out of your sight, and forget everything we've mentioned.
Just remember life's too short to take everything so seriously. Flesh is beautiful. It's time to descend into the infernal witches' cauldron and deep down into the hellish pit for a real Black Mass. Includes a thorough review and collector's guide of each rare publication as well as illuminating essays on the subject.
