SOL LEWITT: RECENT WORK (2004) - Catalog No. 46

Sol LeWitt (b.1928), whose abstract work relates to both Conceptual and Minimal art, created a “wall drawing” in situ for this exhibition – a vibrant latticework of primary colors. Other works included 12 recent colorful gouaches on large sheets of paper as well as drawings and maquettes for a series of dome structures that have yet to be realized. In her extensive catalogue essay, Emily Braun, Professor of Art History at Hunter College and the Graduate Center of the University of the City of New York, presents an entirely new interpretation of LeWitt’s wall drawings. There are many color illustrations of the art works. 42 pp.

ETERNAL PRESENCE: HANDPRINTS AND FOOTPRINTS IN BUDDHIST ART (2004) - Catalog No. 44

After ten years of extensive research, Kathryn Selig Brown curated this landmark exhibition of approximately 50 objects that date from the 2nd century BCE through the 20th century. They originated in Tibet, India, Pakistan, Burma, Thailand, China, and Japan. Loans from private collections, as well as museums in the United States and Europe, provided the most comprehensive display of Tibetan thangkas (sacred paintings) bearing handprints and footprints ever assembled. They are reproduced in color in this important catalogue, the first to treat the subject. In addition to Selig Brown’s lucid and scholarly essay, Donald S. Lopez has written an informative article on Buddhist symbolism. 80 pp.

THE HUMAN COMEDY: PORTRAITS BY RED GROOMS (2003) - Catalog No. 42

Many of Red Grooms’s (b.1937) most memorable works were shown in this major exhibition, the first devoted solely to his portraits. His subjects include such cultural icons as Mae West, Gertrude Stein, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, and Elvis Presley. High and low art merges in his painting, sculpture, mixed media constructions, prints, and drawings. The portraits are at times close to caricature, yet always affectionate. The colorful catalogue covers the exhibition and contains an essay by Curator Isabelle Dervaux on the importance of portraiture. 36 pp.

Price: $15.00 each

 

EDWARD GIOBBI (2003) - Catalog No 41

This exhibition surveyed the long career of Edward Giobbi (b. 1925), whose work includes both abstraction and figuration. Influenced by Italian Masters as well as the Italian Futurists, Giobbi paints compelling images of social concern and personal identity. He draws on literary references from the classics and the Bible, as well as dream imagery, to create canvases of jewel-like colors and explosive brushwork. The catalogue contains a conversation between the artist and guest Curator Mimi Thompson. 26 color illustrations. 30 pp.

Price: $10.00 each
