Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam

Seth Price
Social Synthetic

This catalogue is the first comprehensive publication on Price’s varied oeuvre. It offers an unflinching portrait of contemporary, mediated Western life. The exhibition at Stedelijk Museum is the first survey of the American artist’s work.

A key theme in Price’s work is the self under technological pressure. This is often expressed in terms of the ‘skins’ of surface, packaging, and wrapping: a photographic study of a person’s skin obtained through the technologies Google employs for mapping; a vacuum-formed plastic relief presenting a body part stranded in plastic; a large wall sculpture depicting the negative space between two people engaged in intimate action, greatly enlarged from a tiny internet jpeg.

‘Seth Price is a key figure in addressing technology and artistic authorship. His work traces an important art historical shift from the concept of collage, where chance played a major role and the image was constructed of multiple layers, to the concept of a unified image, which envelops us in an endless, undifferentiated, digital stream.’ – Beatrix Ruf, Director of Stedelijk Museum

Published on the occasion of the exhibition Seth Price: Social Synthetic, at Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (15 April – 3 September 2017), and at Museum Brandhorst, Munich (12 October 2017 – 18 March 2018).

Texts by: Cory Arcangel, Ed Halter, Achim Hochdörfer, Branden W Joseph, John Kelsey, Michelle Kuo, Rachel Kushner, Laura Owens, Ariana Reines, Beatrix Ruf.

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.
