Softcover / Primary Information 2020 / 384 pages

A massive, groundbreaking, international anthology of concrete poetry by women, from Mira Schendel to Susan Howe.

This expansive volume is the first collection of concrete poetry by women, with artists and poets from the US, Latin America, Europe and Japan, whose work departs from more programmatic approaches to the genre. Their word-image compositions are unified by an experimental impetus and a radical questioning of the transparency of the word and its traditional arrangement on the page.


Owing, perhaps, to the fact that concrete poetry’s attempt to revolutionize poetry foregrounded the male-dominated channels in which it circulated, some of the women in this volume―Ilse Garnier or Giulia Niccolai, for instance―were active in the movement’s epicenters, yet failed to attain a visibility or ample representation in international anthologies such as Emmett Williams’s Anthology of Concrete Poetry (1967) and Mary Ellen Solt’s Concrete Poetry: A World View (1968).

This anthology celebrates their legacy and recontextualizes word-image compositions by other figures working independently. It gathers work by over 40 writers and artists, including Lenora de Barros (Brazil), Mirella Bentivoglio (Italy), Amanda Berenguer (Uruguay), Suzanne Bernard (France), Tomaso Binga (Italy), Blanca Calparsoro (Spain), Paula Claire (UK), Betty Danon (Turkey), Mirtha Dermisache (Argentina), Ilse Garnier (France), Anna Bella Geiger (Brazil), Bohumila Grögerová (Czech Republic), Ana Hatherly (Portugal), Susan Howe (USA), Tamara Jankovic (Serbia), Annalies Klophaus (Germany), Barbara Kozlowska (Poland), Liliana Landi (Italy), Liliane Lijn (USA), Françoise Mairey (France), Giulia Niccolai (Italy), Jennifer Pike (UK), Giovanna Sandri (Italy), Mira Schendel (Brazil), Chima Sunada (Japan), Mary Ellen Solt (USA), Salette Tavares (Portugal), Colleen Thibaudeau (Canada), Rosmarie Waldrop (USA) and Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt (Germany).

JAMES LEE BYARS: The Sage in the Tower FEMINIST ART ACTIVISMS AND ARTIVISMS Sensuous Thoughts: Essays on the Work of Donald Judd
James Lee Byars; Els Hoek, et al

French wraps / Museum boimans von beuningen 2020 / 24 pages / ISBN 9789069183138

During his first European exhibition in 1969, American conceptual and performance artist James Lee Byars (1932–1997) presented three actions, and with them provided a guideline for experiencing his art: viewers had to believe in the reality he was offering. His premise was the less you had to go by, the greater the scope of your imagination. The artist travelled extensively throughout his life, and maintained his extensive international network by writing letters. Starting from his correspondence with Flor Bex, Lieve De Deyne, and Wies Smals, this Boijmans Study recounts Byars’s activities in the Netherlands and Belgium, and also recounts his formative years in Japan.

MOBY DICK - Illustrated by Alex Katz BLACK MOUNTAIN CHAMBERLAIN: John Chamberlain's Writings at Black Mountain College, 1955 PHILIP GUSTON: COLLECTED WRITINGS, LECTURES, AND CONVERSATIONS
Herman Melville / Alex Katz

Hardcover / Karma 2020 / 684 pages, 29 b/w ills.

A sumptuous edition of Melville’s epic tale of hubris and obsession, gorgeously illustrated by Alex Katz.

In 1948, while enrolled in an illustration course at Cooper Union, Alex Katz (born 1927) created 27 pen and ink drawings inspired by Herman Melville’s 1851 novel Moby-Dick; or, The Whale. Katz, who had first read the book at 13 years old, was drawn to its experimental and digressive structure. Moby-Dick “doesn’t really have a beginning, a middle, and an end,” he notes; rather, “it’s a big form.” The artist’s whimsical illustrations capture this quality while expressing the early formation of his now highly recognizable style, celebrated for its elegant formal economy. Katz later returned to maritime motifs with a series of work based on his trips to Maine that began in the mid-1950s.

Like Melville’s literary attempts to elude representation, Katz’s drawings attempt to represent the unknowable. “The great Leviathan is that one creature in the world which must remain unpainted to the last,” Melville writes. “True, one portrait may hit the mark much nearer than another, but none can hit it with any very considerable degree of exactness.”
