OBSERVER EFFECT: ON CONTEMPORARY PAINTING

Written by Schwabsky, Barry
Many consider Barry Schwabsky to be the critic on painting today, even if he does write copiously on other art forms,” write editors Rob Colvin and Sherman Sam in their foreword to this selection of Schwabsky's writings.

As Colvin and Sam point out, the book “documents a dialogue between abstraction and the image” in which “images serve less to represent their described subject than to articulate the sort of painting each one desires to be.

WALID RAAD - BETTER BE WATCHING THE CLOUDS / I WANT TO BE ABLE TO WELCOME MY FATHER TO MY HOUSE

Walid Raad investigates how violence affects bodies, minds, art, and tradition. This artist's book highlights two of his thoughtful and witty artworks.

The first part concentrates on the local, regional, and international political figures whose faces and names became fixtures in the Lebanese landscape; the second relies upon diaries that Raad's father kept during the wars.Walid Raad investigates how violence affects bodies, minds, art, and tradition.
