Lucio Fontana
Sculpture

This catalogue was produced to accompany the exhibition Lucio Fontana “Ceramics” at the Aspen Art Museum, July 27 – October 7, 2012.

Best known for the slashed and cut canvases of the Concetti spaziali that he created primarily in the 1950s and 60s, Argentine–Italian artist Lucio Fontana (1899–1968) used ceramics and clay modeling to explore larger problems in sculpture and painting. ‘Lucio Fontana: Sculpture’ is published in conjunction with the first U.S. museum exhibition dedicated solely to the artist’s groundbreaking ceramic work, and explores the innovative and often contrarian ways in which Fontana made use of the medium.

AMELIE VON WULFFEN

Published on the occasion of her Aspen Art Museum exhibition, the artist’s first solo presentation in an American museum, this catalogue focuses on Amelie von Wulffen’s recent work. The artist deploys a host of painterly techniques that – while departing from the photographic collage practice for which she is best known – remain deeply referential, wryly revisiting and reprocessing tactics and tropes of modern painting from European Romanticism onward.

Through a variety of media, including photographs, sculpture, video and printed ephemera, New Zealand artist Simon Denny (born 1982) invites us to reflect on the evolution of television and video as both technology and cultural construct. Denny’s recent works have included investigations into the “architecture” of the TV set itself, the genre conventions of documentary and the myriad processes by which content is translated from one medium to another, be it in television program stills woven into beach towels or video montages derived from outdated trade magazines. This catalogue emphasises projects realized since 2009–including Denny’s 2012 exhibition at the Aspen Art Museum–and features essays by curator Jacob Proctor, critic Pablo Larios and conservator Hanna Hölling; a conversation between Denny and three artistic peers; and illustrations throughout.

The Anxiety of Photography


The pervasive use of photography by Conceptual artists, and a generation later by artists of the so-called Pictures Generation, effectively ended any debate about the validity of photography operating legitimately within the sphere of contemporary art. Photography’s undefined, in-between status, as a medium, a tool, an object, a practice is still, unresolved. ‘The Anxiety of Photography’ examines the growing number of artists – some of whom self-identify as photographers, others for whom photography is central to their work – who embrace photography’s plasticity, having internalized an expanded collage aesthetic and digested various ideas of appropriation. Among the artists included are Liz Deschenes, Roe Ethridge, Matt Keegan, Annette Kelm, Elad Lassry, Anthony Pearson, and Mark Wyse.
