Sinopsis: With the hotly discussed resurgence of painting at the dawn of the new century, it is clear that reports of the medium's death have been greatly exaggerated. "Painting at the Edge of the World" explores the possibilities of a redefinition and ''hybridization'' of painting begun in the 1960s, examining the manifestations of these new artistic vistas in the present day. This full-color catalogue features illustrations and a variety of critical texts by some of the most exciting established and emerging critical voices working today, in addition to work by an international and intergenerational group of artists hailing from places as diverse as Brazil, Ethiopia, Germany, South Africa, Scotland, Japan, Belgium, Iran, Italy, and the United States. Designed in two sections--a gatefold plate section containing reproductions of the work, and a french-folded section containing critical essays--the book brings together a wide range of contemporary views on painting from a diverse array of disciplines, including the visual arts, film, architecture, design, and music in an attempt to assess the relevance of painting in the contemporary global context. In addition, "Painting at the Edge of the World" includes documentation of each artist's work and an examination of their artistic methodology. Essays by: Daniel Birnbaum, Paulo Herkenhoff, Midori Matsui, Jorg Heiser, Frances Stark, Andrew Blauvelt, Reindaldo Laddaga, Yves-Alain Bois, Helio Oiticica, Takashi Murakami, Mike Kelley, and Cuauhtemoc Medina. Introduction by Douglas Fogle. Featuring artworks by: Franz Ackerman, Haluk Akakçe, Francis Alÿs, Kevin Appel, Marcel Broodthaers, John Currin, Marlene Dumas, Andreas Gursky, Eberhard Havekost, Arturo Herrera, Mike Kelley, Martin Kippenberger, Udomsak Krisanamis, Jim Labie, Margherita Manzelli, Paul McCarthy, Lucy McKenzie, Julie Mehretu, Takashi Murakami, Nader, Chris Ofili, Helio Oiticica, Michael Raedecker, Thomas Scheibitz, Rudolph Stingel, Hiroshi Sugito, Paul Thek, and Richard Wright.
Paperback, 6.5 x 9 inches, 256 pages, 175 color illustrations.
From Library Journal:
The demise of painting as an art form has been anticipated and disputed ever since the invention of photography in the 19th century. This exhibition catalog is published in conjunction with a show at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and addresses the current state of painting within the international avant-garde. It features 30 cutting-edge artists from around the world, with some more familiar names including Mike Kelley, John Currin, Marlene Dumas, Takashi Murakami, and Chris Ofili. The work of these artists is complemented by equally cutting-edge writing on contemporary painting, contributed by an array of academics, artists (many of whom are featured in the exhibit itself), and curators. The artist plates at the end of the catalog function as a small encyclopedia of contemporary painting, while large color gatefolds and brief profiles represent each of the artists in the exhibition. The design, though contemporary and stylish, can be cumbersome to the reader. Recommended for academic and specialized art collections. Krista Ivy, Bryn Mawr Coll., PA
