Forthcoming! A testament to the Resistance: Every day since Trump was inaugurated in 2017, artist Richard Kraft has been assigning him colored cards for his transgressions, like a soccer ref. Special pre-order price.
The Newest: Siglio's four critically lauded books from 2020 use language, image, the space of the page, and the book as object in startlingly beautiful ways: Madeline Gins, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Ray Johnson, and Bernadette Mayer.
Beloved Books! Joe Brainard! John Cage! Karen Green! Dick Higgins! Ray Johnson! Dorothy Iannone! Tantra Song! Cecilia Vicuña! A big embrace of experiment, expansiveness, indeterminacy, and contradiction.
Artist Focus—Sophie Calle: Two books by the renowned artist whose controversial works often fuse investigatory methods, fictional constructs, conceptual art, and the artful composition of self.
O! Collage!—A wide selection of collage works, some full of beguiling nonsense, others plundering (or inventing) archives to tell untold stories, all using juxtaposition and friction to see the world in new ways.
