Martin Herbert
Tell Them I Said No


This collection of essays by Martin Herbert considers various artists who have withdrawn from the art world or adopted an antagonistic position toward its mechanisms. A large part of the artist’s role in today’s professionalized art system is being present. Providing a counterargument to this concept of self-marketing, Herbert examines the nature of retreat, whether in protest, as a deliberate conceptual act, or out of necessity. By illuminating these motives, Tell Them I Said No offers a unique perspective on where and how the needs of the artist and the needs of the art world diverge. Essays on Lutz Bacher, Stanley Brouwn, Christopher D’Arcangelo, Trisha Donnelly, David Hammons, Agnes Martin, Cady Noland, Laurie Parsons, Charlotte Posenenske, and Albert York.

Martin Herbert is a writer and critic living in Berlin. He is associate editor of ArtReview and writes for international art journals. Previous books include The Uncertainty Principle (2014) and Mark Wallinger (2011).

The Slip of the Tongue
Danh Vo, Caroline Bourgeois, Julie Ault, Heinz Peter Knez, Stefan A. Peterson (Eds.)


Edited by Danh Vo, Caroline Bourgeois, Julie Ault, Heinz Peter Knez, Stefan A. Peterson.
Exhibition curated by Danh Vo and Caroline Bourgeois
Texts by Patricia Falguieres, Elisabeth Lebovici, and Amy Zion
Photography by Heinz Peter Knez

Danh Vo’s conceptual artworks and installations often draw upon elements of personal lived experience (his own, the lives of his parents and other family members) to explore broader historical, social or political themes, particularly those relating to the history of Vietnam at the close of the twentieth century. The works shown in this book—closely related to an exhibition at the Pinault Foundation in Venice—in addition to Vo’s site-specific installations, include some curious old works of art from Venetian museums and collections, provocatively chosen by Vo to establish an unprecedented dialogue between past and present.

Beautifully designed, comprehensive exhibition catalogue with two inserted booklets (text book with words by Patricia Falguieres, Elisabeth Lebovici, and Amy Zion; and exhibition guide/artist profile book and work list), with the main book entirely made up of elegant colour photographic imagery by Heinz Peter Knez of the exhibition itself and the wonderful collection of works assembled. Profusely illustrated with installation views, works and details, featuring the work of Leonor Antunes, Nairy Baghramian, Giovanni Bellini, Constantin Brancusi, Marcel Broodthaers, Giovanni Buonconsigliodetto Il Marescalco, Hubert Duprat, Michael Elmgreen & Ingar Dragset, Luciano Fabro, Peter Fischli and David Weiss, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Petrit Halilaj, David Hammons, Roni Horn, Peter Hujar, Tetsumi Kudo, Bertrand Lavier, Zoe Leonard, Francesco Lo Savio, Lee Lozano, Robert Manson, Piero Manzoni, Sadamasa Motonaga, Jean-Luc Moulène, Henrik Olesen, Pablo Picasso, Sigmar Polke, Carol Rama, Charles Ray, Auguste Rodin, Cameron Rowland, Andres Serrano, Nancy Spero, Sturtevant, Alina Szapocznikow, Paul Thek, Harald Thys & Jos Degruyter, Danh Vo, David Wojnarowicz, Martin Wong.

David Hammons
Rousing the Rubble


The now very scarce and collectable MIT Press monograph on David Hammons, published in 1991. First and only edition in original dust jacket.

Essays by Steve Cannon, Tom Finkelpearl, and Kellie Jones
Photographs by Dawoud Bey and Bruce Talamon

Rousing the Rubble celebrates two decades of work by artist David Hammons, who has risen to prominence while at the same time consciously ducking the attention of critics, galleries, and museums, preferring to “do things in the street.” A recipient of both a MacArthur Foundation “genius” award and a Prix de Rome, Hammons places himself as an artist between Arte Povera and Marcel Duchamp. He makes his art from refuse and the detritus of African-American life: chicken wings, Thunderbird and Night Train bottles, clippings from dreadlocks, basketball hoops. Hammons’s deeply felt political views on race and cultural stereotypes give his witty and elegant sculptures, installations, and body prints an integrity that promises to keep the focus on his art rather than on his career.

Illustrated with nearly 100 photographs (both black and white and color), Rousing the Rubble covers the full range of Hammons’s art and his methods of creating it. Steve Cannon’s rap poem takes the reader on a freewheeling bicycle ride from Harlem to the Lower East Side in New York and is joyously infused with the same energies and inspirations as Hammons’ work. Tom Finkelpearl discusses the power of the dirty, used objects Hammons prefers and how they relate to the clean” art exhibited in conventional gallery settings. And Kellie Jones examines how Hammons’s art evolved from Los Angeles in the 1960s to New York and Rome in the present day.
