FOREST HILLS - BILL SULLIVAN


Sun Books and Editions, 2014 / First Edition of 500 copies / 145 pages / 25 x 17 cm

From the publisher: Forest Hills is a book that follows the 20th century history of tennis and art, confusing and conflating their two stories in order to create a new kind of history. Once the center of tennis in America Forest Hills is now an almost forgotten world, a lost civilization of the sport. Bill Sullivan's book uses photography and image making to tell the story of it's rise and fall paralleling it's history with that of art and design. The book follows the history of the site and the stadium as it evolved through the various changes to its surfaces and trappings to its ultimate end. Functioning as an ahistorical/historical document, Forest Hills is a story about a real place as well as a long meditation on how this place and it's elements may have been viewed by people in the past over time.

Scarce.

ODO YAKUZA TOKYO / ANTON KUSTERS


VERY GOOD + SOFTCOVER with faint edge-wear

Zabrozas (2016) / Third Edition / 226 pages, color illustrations.

The story of YAKUZA is a personal visual account of the life inside an inaccessible subculture: a traditional Japanese crime family that controls the streets of Kabukicho, in the heart of Tokyo, Japan. Through 10 months of negotiations with the Shinseikai, my brother Malik and I became one of the only westerners ever to be granted this kind of access to the closed world of Japanese organised crime. I share their complex relationship to Japanese society, and show the personal struggle of being forced to live in two different worlds at the same time; worlds that often have conflicting morals and values. It turns out not to be a simple 'black' versus 'white' relationship, but most definitely one with many shades of grey.

EYE OF THE SIXTIES: RICHARD BELLAMY AND THE TRANSFORMATION OF MODERN ART / JUDITH STEIN




NEW HARDCOVER

Farrar, Straus and Giroux / 2016 / 384 pages / ISBN
0374151326
(
See also, the simultaneous publication: SERIOUS BIDNESS: THE LETTERS OF RICHARD BELLAMY)

A man with a preternatural ability to find emerging artists, Richard Bellamy was one of the first advocates of pop art, minimalism, and conceptual art. The founder and director of the fabled Green Gallery on Fifty-Seventh Street, the witty, poetry-loving art lover became a legend of the avant-garde, showing the work of artists such as Mark di Suvero, Claes Oldenburg, James Rosenquist, Donald Judd, and others.

Based on decades of research and hundreds of interviews with artists, friends, dealers, and lovers, Judith Stein's Eye of the Sixties
recovers the elusive Bellamy and tells the story of a counterculture that became the mainstream.

SERIOUS BIDNESS: THE LETTERS OF RICHARD BELLAMY



NEW HARDCOVER


Edited and with an introduction by Miles Bellamy.


Brooklyn, NY: Near Fine Press; Printed by Small Editions, Red Hook. 72 pages, cloth. ISBN 978-0-692-51867-0. Two facsimiles, three photographic illustrations.

This selection of twenty-two letters written by the renowned art dealer Richard Bellamy (1927-1998) highlights his great sensitivity to the needs of the artists he represented, his special brand of humor and his literary predilections. The letters cover the year 1965, when he closed the Green Gallery — a showcase for many who would become the most important artist of the second half of the 20th century — to the last weeks of his life in 1998.

Included are letters to art collectors and patrons such as Virginia Wright, Vera List and A. Alfred Taubman, and letters concerning the artists Mark di Suvero, Walter De Maria and Yayoi Kusama, among others. There are also four letters written to his son, Miles Bellamy which draw a kind of narrative of their relationship. Miles Bellamy’s introduction and notes expound on that relationship and describe the contexts in which all the letters were written. Appended to the main text are Richard Bellamy’s essay on the painter Myron Stout, the only previously published writing by the dealer, as well as documentation of a posthumous reading of Bellamy’s letters at the New School in October, 1998.

This publication coincides with that of a major new biography, Judith E. Stein’s EYE OF THE SIXTIES: RICHARD BELLAMY AND THE TRANSFORMATION OF MODERN ART

FINCH COLLEGE 1965


HARDCOVER.


A strange a mysterious document of seniors [?], graduates [?] - it is not explicitly stated - of Manhattan's all-female Finch College. Black and white images throughout, with only a brief introduction by Dr. John H.B. Knowlton, thus: "While the visual aspect of our world still matters -- the sudden regard of a face, the apprehension of some everyday object, or simply the conflict or consonance of two colors -- while these things hold the impossibility of drama, that drama will demand its stage and its actors...the traffic that crosses this stage has its own life and volition whether it bears human faces or only the diagrams of anxiety or rapture." We suppose the young women featured here are the "traffic' to which he refers. 84 pages. Cloth quarto with wear to edges. Scarce. Further images available upon request.

SETH SIEGELAUB: BEYOND CONCEPTUAL ART


NEW SOFTCOVER

Curator, writer and dealer Seth Siegelaub (1941–2013) is legendary for his promotion of Conceptual art in New York in the 1960s and ‘70s. Acknowledging the unusual scope and essentially unclassifiable nature of his manifold interests and activities, this volume shows how Siegelaub’s projects and collections are underpinned by a deeper concern with printed matter and lists as ways of disseminating ideas. The book’s chapters explore the various facets of and connections in Siegelaub’s work, from his groundbreaking projects with Conceptual artists and his research and publications on mass media and communications theories to his interest in handwoven textiles and non-Western fabrics. It also highlights his collecting activity, which culminates in a unique ensemble of books on the social history of textiles and a textile collection comprising over 750 items from around the world.
