David Gilhooly

Catalogue for David Gilhooly’s 1976 exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art,Chicago.

Whimsical and irreverent, Gilhooly was internationally acclaimed for his imaginative ceramic works of animals, food and other subjects. He started his career in 1962 as an assistant to sculptor Robert Arneson, who ran the freewheeling TB-9 ceramics studio at UC Davis. Arneson and his students were iconoclasts who created works that poked fun at high culture and made them leaders in the Bay Area funk art movement.

Although he sculpted creatures ranging from anteaters to zebras, Gilhooly made his popular reputation with an amusing amphibian. He created green frogs — first as unusual handles for drinking cups and then as full-size residents of Frog World, a universe of figures with full histories and mythologies.

Keren Cytter
The Best of Keren Cytter / The Worst of Keren Cytter


Published by Kunsthal Charlottenborg / Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago

Text by Naomi Beckwith, Jacob Fabricius

The Best of Keren Cytter/The Worst of Keren Cytter is the first comprehensive publication of the video screenplays written by Keren Cytter (born 1977). Cytter has been widely heralded for her video work, which challenges conventions of narrative cinema through its pared-down style, deliberately kitschy effects, knowing manipulation of familiar genres and fractured storylines. For her exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, the artist invited the exhibition’s two curators, Jacob Fabricius and Naomi Beckwith, to read and categorize transcripts of the entire body of her video work. The curators then debated the merits of every screenplay, dividing them into the “best” or “worst” of Cytter’s work. This two-volume publication anthologizes all of Cytter’s screenplays and includes short essays by the two curators.
