Robert Overby
Works 1969 – 1987


Alessandro Rabottini, Andrea Bellini, Martin Clark, eds.
Texts by Andrea Bellini, Martin Clark, Robin Clark, Alison M. Gingeras, Terry R. Myers, Alessandro Rabottini
Despite a prolific and diverse practice, Robert Overby (1935–93) remains one of the best-kept secrets in post-war American art. While rarely exhibiting during his lifetime, he nonetheless built up an extraordinary, multifaceted body of work encompassing sculpture, installation, painting, photography, print and collage.
This monograph is published on the occasion of “Robert Overby: Works 1969-1987”, the first survey exhibition of the artist’s work to be organized in Europe. Edited by Alessandro Rabottini —in collaboration with Andrea Bellini and Martin Clark—it has been conceived, from the outset, as a joint project of four partner institutions: Centre d’Art Contemporain, Genève; GAMeC – Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Bergamo; Bergen Kunsthall, and Le Consortium, Dijon.

DAN GRAHAM
WORKS 1965-2000


Brand new copy of the now out-of-print Dan Graham catalogue raisonne, published to accompany a major traveling exhibition held from 13 January to 25 March 2001 at the Museum of Contemporary Art Serralves, 21 June to 30 September at the Musée d’art moderne de la Ville de Paris from 25 November to 10 February 2002 in Kroller Müller Museum in Otterlo and May to August 2002 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki.

Since the 1960s, Dan Graham has carved out a unique space in the field of contemporary art, combing his work as an artist and as a critic of architecture and art in a unique fusion of theory and practice. From the outset, Graham engaged seriously with the aesthetic and political ramifications of Structuralism, taking the artist’s critical perceptions of reality to an increasingly conceptual level. His early articles grappled with the question of architecture, arguing that behind the high-rise apartment complexes and housing projects spreading over the Western world lay the phenomenon of economic and social rationalization. Since the beginning of the 1970s Graham has pursued these and other observations with installations, videos, films and large-scale pavilions that serve as thought-models for his critical insights.

This catalogue raisonne provides a comprehensive, chronological documentation of 165 works and writings from 1965 until the present day, and includes articles, written sketches, Graham’s reports about his artistic activities, art critical essays, film stills, architectural models, pavilions and video rooms, as well as an extensive bibliography. With essays by preeminent critic/philosophers Benjamin Buchloh and Thierry de Duve, among others, the result is a complete and edifying look at one of the premier artist-scholars of the past thirty years.

Under the Clouds: from Paranoia to the Digital Sublime
João Ribas (ed.)


Since the second half of the 20th century, we have lived under the shadow of two clouds: the mushroom cloud of the atomic bomb, and the ‘cloud’ of distributed information networks. How did the central metaphor of cold war paranoia become the utopian metaphor of today? ‘Under the Clouds’ explores the contemporary sublime that has replaced the natural one, and the interrelated effects and affects of these two clouds on life and work, leisure and love, and on images, bodies, and minds.
The post-war technologies of the emergent third industrial revolution have now evolved to fit in the palm of our hand; we no longer merely look at images, we now touch, scroll, pinch, and drag them. Where is the border between the self and its data shadow, between information, matter, and affect? The biological, economic, aesthetic, and political effects of living under the clouds has taken the form of new relations between data and material, as well as increasing debt and abstract financialization; the changing nature of work and sex; and new relationships between screens, images, and things. As earlier forms of technologically inflected art sought to mitigate the effects of change — both on perception and society — many of today’s artistic practices confront the myriad interfaces and decentralized networks that continue to shape and transform daily life, forming new evolving connections between bits and atoms.
