The Oasis of Matisse


At the heart of this publication is one of the most popular works: the monumental paper cut-out The Parakeet and the Mermaid (1952-1953).

This iconic artwork is presented alongside other many cut-outs, book designs by Matisse, rarely-exhibited works in fabric, interiors, costume and stained glass inspired by them. Matisse sought the most perfect possible union between shape and colour.

He depicted Eastern nudes, colourful fabrics, carpets, potted plants, and idyllic landscapes. This major publication, splendidly designed and full of vivid illustrations, reveals that, until his death, Matisse sought to evoke a bright, joyous simplicity with the minimum of means.

Texts by Patrice Deparpe, Geurt Imanse, Beatrix Ruf, Maurice Rummens, and Bart Rutten.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition The Oasis of Matisse at Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, 27 March – 16 August 2015.

Jean Tinguely
Retrospective

 

Associated with the Nouveaux Réalistes and Zero, Swiss painter and sculptor Jean Tinguely (1925–91) is best known for his whirring, jangling meta-mechanic sculptures, which take up Dada’s mantle in their use of discarded materials and their wit, humor and irony. But this perception of Tinguely as merely a playful kinetic sculptor neglects the more topical, critical, theoretical and interdisciplinary aspects of Tinguely’s work.
An extensive monograph on this chronically underpublished artist, Jean Tinguely: Retrospective is the first publication to explore the artist’s work from this perspective.
Tinguely’s machines are built to malfunction or self-destruct, expressing a pessimistic view of human existence and death–and yet they are infectiously cheerful. His meta-mechanics suggest a hobbyist’s enthusiasm for technology, but made out of junk, they also suggest the artist’s skepticism regarding technological advance. Tinguely loved art history, and yet he launched savage attacks on the museum with pieces that are now seminal works of institutional critique.
With contributions from Kaira Cabañas, Hans-Christian von Herrmann, Dominik Müller, Johan Pas, Margriet Schavemaker, Barbara Til and Beat Wismer, this volume presents Tinguely as an artist whose work sustained contradictions and courted ambiguity.
A fantastic and visually-rich book!

CARL ANDRE ROBERT BARRY DOUGLAS HUEBLER JOSEPH KOSUTH SOL LEWITT ROBERT MORRIS LAWRENCE WEINER [also known as the ‘Xerox Book’]
Seth Siegelaub


Originally published by Siegelaub/Wendler in 1968. Republished in December 2015 on the occasion of the exhibition Seth Siegelaub: Beyond Conceptual Art at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.

This exhibition in book form was originally published and organised to show work outside of the gallery setting by American curator and art dealer Seth Siegelaub. The book presents several artists (Carl Andre, Robert Barry, Douglas Huebler, Joseph Kosuth, Sol Lewitt, Robert Morris, Lawrence Weiner) associated with Siegelaub’s curatorial practice, and applies unconventional modes for the exhibition and distribution of art. Siegelaub asked each participating artist to create 25 pages of work that responded to the photocopy format, which was new at the time. A pivotal exhibition for conceptual art in the 1960s, it has now been republished in a second edition through a collaboration by Roma Publications, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, De Appel arts centre, and Egress Foundation.
