This book is not a catalogue raisonné, it instead takes a look at the library of an amateur, an excuse to apprehend this aspect of Richard Prince’s work which encompasses books and the question of the collection and its incompleteness, revealed here by the ‘ghosts’ of the missing books.
Richard Prince is an avid collector of books, an obsessive one.
This fervor is visible in The Good Life or American/English, where he photographs covers of books from his collection, reducing the book to an image, a simple surface.

Art & Project Bulletins 1 – 156
September 1968 - November 1989

From the earliest days in 1968 when the bulletin appeared Under the title of “Architectural Research” the Small statement printed on the bottom of the front page rings out with the spirit of its time : “art & project plans to bring you together with the ideas of artists, architects and technicians to discover an intelligent form for your living and working space. Art & project invites you to participate in its exhibitions which will explore ways in which art, architecture and technology can combine with you own ideas.”

From Daniel Buren’s transparent bulletin to Sol Lewitt’s beautiful bulletin folded into 48 small squares, from Bas Jan Ader’s final bulletin mailed during his last work in which he died to Gilbert & George’s fragile double portrait, these issues are a unique moving international artwork that stands apart from anything else in this period in its breath of artists included and quality of original work involved. It is increasingly included in exhibitions concerned with Conceptual Art and its influences. The complete set is of prime interest to major private collectors and museums and libraries concerned with the artists involved with the bulletins. These 156 issues encapsulate an era.

Published in conjunction with the exhibition held at Cabinet Gallery, London, October 17 – December 23, 2011; & Christophe Daviet-Thery Livres et éditions d’artistes, Paris, October 27 – December 23, 2011.
