ABSTRACT DRAWING

Richard Deacon

Bringing together an unusually eclectic selection of works from the mid-20th century to the present, this exciting catalog explores the complexities of “abstraction” in drawing. An exhibition at London’s esteemed Drawing Room (curated by British artist Richard Deacon) features works that employ various strands of abstract drawing—from the inscriptive and calligraphic to the ornamental and generative. A generously illustrated catalogue, features works by 28 internationally renowned artists—including Tomma Abts, Tauba Auerbach, David Batchelor, Eva Hesse, Sol LeWitt, Gordon Matta-Clark, Richard Serra and Kishio Suga—alongside texts by Dawn Ades, Richard Deacon and Anna Lovatt that interrogate the convergences and divergences inherent within abstract art.

ABSTRACT VAUDEVILLE

The Work of Rose English

Guy Brett, Martha Fleming & Doro Globus (Eds.)

Rose English emerged from the Conceptual art, dance and feminist scenes of 1970s Britain to become one of the most internationally influential performance artists working today. This comprehensive exhibition catalog documents her 40-year career to date, including legendary site-specific performances and large-scale spectaculars. Her uniquely interdisciplinary work combines elements of theater, circus, opera and poetry to explore themes of gender politics, the identity of the performer and the metaphysics of presence. English has mounted performances on ice rinks; at the Royal Court Theatre and Tate Britain, London and Franklin Furnace, New York, collaborating with horses, magicians and acrobats. Accompanying many rare archival photographs and performance scripts, a major essay by art critic/curator Guy Brett surveys the artist’s work and times alongside interviews with two of English’s closest collaborators, Sally Potter and Simon Vincenzi.

ACTS OF VOICING

The Poetics and Politics of the Voice

Hans D. Christ, Iris Dressler & Christine Peters (Eds.)

A voluminous and beautifully illustrated hardcover publication, Acts of Voicing addresses the aesthetic, performative and political significance of the voice from the perspective of visual art, dance, performance and theory. Documenting a museum exhibition (Stuttgart & Seoul, 2012) of the same title in essays and photo- graphs of installations and performances, the elegant book explores the diegetic (elemental) and performative characteristics of the voice. There are voices that resist, voices that are disciplined and seek to discipline, voices that are heard and voices that go unheard. The book also examines the struggle to find one’s voice and the act of getting voices to speak or be silent. With contributions by artists, curators, choreographers, authors and theorists including Daniel García Andújar, John Barker, Samuel Beckett, Natalie Boseul Shin, Hans D. Christ, Ines Doujak, Iris Dressler, Tim Etchells, Ramón Grosfoguel, Anette Hoffmann, Ranjit Hoskote, Bojana Kunst, Manuel Pelmus, Christine Peters, David Riff and Imogen Stidworthy.

AFTER BERKELEY

Objectif Exhibitions, 2010–2012

Mai Abu ElDahab (Ed.)

After  Berkeley opens with a letter from Mai Abu El Dahab addressed to the book’s designer, Will Holder, about parallels between their project and Roberto Bolaño’s book The  Savage  Detectives. It then proceeds through a series of conversations revealing the references, methods, and interests of the participants at Objectif Exhibitions ranging from reticence and possession in artistic production to a historical account of so-called carrot jokes. Interviews include Matias Faldbakken by Nikki Columbus, Patricia Esquivias by Jonas Z␣akaitis, and Michael Portnoy by Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy, among others, and a contribution by Dexter Sinister. This publication is the second in a two-part series of interviews with artists who exhibited at Objectif Exhibitions, Antwerp, between 2010 and 2011.

AGNIESZKA KURANT / ALEKSANDRA WASILKOWSKA

Emergency Exit

Emergency Exit, the installation exposed and explored in this full-color book, merges the disciplines of architecture and art within a collaborative dialogue between artists Agnieszka Kurant and Aleksandra Wasilkowska, who represented Poland with this project at the 12th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice in 2010. In their essay, the artists present the ideas behind Emergency Exit and the concept of “urban portable holes,” and such artifacts as Utopian Ruins and Fictional Sports. An archive of reference images, theories, films, and documents inspire and support their work within expanding and interrelated subjects; an all-star team of critics add commentary, and Hans Ulrich Obrist conducts a dual interview with Kurant and Wasilkowska.
