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. Written since the turn of the millennium, the texts in The Oberver Effect include meditations on the broader context of painting today alongside reflections on such well-known American painters as Alex Katz, Kerry James Marshall, Nicole Eisenman, and Dana Schutz, as well as practitioners from Europe and beyond―Bernard Frize, Tal R, and Ha Chonghyun among them. 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.A collection of writings on art by Barry Schwabsky.

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

Written by Walid Raad
Walid Raad investigates how violence affects bodies, minds, art, and tradition. This artist's book highlights two of his thoughtful and witty artworks. Here, as elsewhere in his artworks, Raad departs from historical events linked to the protracted Lebanese wars of the past 40 years to create somewhat absurd, outlandish but plausible documents. 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.
