Sarah Cottier Gallery 1994 – 2014

The history of Sarah Cottier Gallery’s first twenty years in a comprehensive reference volume.

An example of one of Australia’s most influential contemporary art galleries.

Twenty years, two hundred exhibitions, four venues, nearly one hundred artists. Ever since its arrival in 1994, Sarah Cottier Gallery has been one of Australia’s most courageous contemporary art galleries. The artists represented in this time, including John Armleder, Sydney Ball, Marco Fusinato, Matthys Gerber, John Nixon, Mike Parr, Koji Ryui and Gemma Smith, represent some of the hottest talent in contemporary art.

20/200 celebrates the first twenty years of the gallery and its artists in a pictorial format that illustrates the breadth of the twenty year experience. The book includes images of every one of the gallery’s two hundred exhibitions and includes the work of almost one hundred artists. The volume is hardcover bound with a timeless rounded spine and features a holographic foil on the the front cover. The individual works and specific highlights inevitably surrender to the vast, hypnotic rhythm of the volume’s breadth – as in the fairy tale conundrum of the dancing princesses, each is more beautiful than the last.

Includes the work of A.D.S. Donaldson, Martin Creed, Kerrie Poliness, Melinda Harper, Julian Dashper, John Armleder, Sydney Ball, Mikala Dwyer, Hany Armanious, Marco Fusinato, Matthys Gerber, John Nixon, Mike Parr, Koji Ryui, Mikala Dwyer, Hany Armanious, Matt Hinkley, Huseyin Sami, Robert Pulie, Julia Gorman, Simon Denny, Anne-Marie May, Gemma Smith, John Spiteri, Katherina Grosse, Mary Teague, Olivier Mosset, and many more!

Texts by Nicholas Chambers, Jason Marcou, Julie Fragar, Anna Waldmann, Amanda Rowell,  Alan Cholodenko, Mark Titmarsh and Christopher Hanrahan.

The Anti-Museum : An Anthology
Mathieu Copeland, Balthazar Lovay (Eds.)

The museum is constantly a target for criticism, whether it comes from artists, thinkers, curators, or even the public. From the avant-gardes of the twentieth century up until our contemporary era, the museum’s suspect position has generated countless gestures, iconoclastic actions, scathing attacks, utopias, and alternative exhibition spaces. For the first time, this anthology is devoted to the anti-museum, through anti-art, the anti-artist, anti-exhibition, as well as anti-architecture, anti-philosophy, anti-religion, anti-cinema and anti-music. This notion – unpatented but regularly reappropriated – traces the erratic, fractured, and sometimes paradoxical counter-history of the contestation of artistic institutions. From the first anti-exhibition to the first catalog retracing the history of “Closed Exhibitions,” from Dada to Noise music, from “Everything is Art” to NO!art, the Japanese avant-gardes to Lettrist cinema, and not forgetting such major protest figures as Gustav Metzger, Henry Flynt, Graciela Carnevale, and Lydia Lunch, The Anti-Museum sketches a polyphonic panorama where negation is accompanied by a powerful breath of life.

Edited by Mathieu Copeland and Balthazar Lovay.

Artist-Run Spaces
Documents Series

Nonprofit collective organizations in the 1960s and 1970s

This volume was developed in collaboration with founders of important and exemplary artist-run spaces of the 1960s-1970s. It represents the first extensive research on this subject and introduces spaces such as Art Metropole in Toronto, Artpool in Budapest, Ecart in Geneva, Franklin Furnace in New York, MOCA in San Francisco, La Mamelle in San Francisco, Printed Matter in New York, Western Front in Vancouver, and Zona in Florence, whose founders include Carl Andre, John Armleder, AA Bronson, Sol LeWitt, Lucy Lippard, Tom Marioni, and Maurizio Nannucci. At a time of transition to new aesthetic approaches, these artists promoted community spirit and organizational skills, pioneering a revaluation of traditional art concepts.

The book documents not only the activities of these spaces, but also maps the artistic strategies and positions that took currency during this period. It thus shows how the inner life of collective self-organization and the exchange between like-minded artist-run spaces developed dynamically.

With contributions by Julie Ault, Fern Bayer, Lionel Bovier, AA Bronson, Christophe Cherix, Gabriele Detterer, Terry Fox, Peggy Gale, Julia Klaniczay, Lucy Lippard, Carl Loeffler, Tom Marioni, Maurizio Nannucci, Toni Sant, Darlene Tong, Michael Turner, Keith Wallace and Martha Wilson.

The book is part of the Documents series and is co-published with Zona Archives.
