ABOUT THE BOOK

Bvlgari's new high jewelry collection pays tribute to the pioneering visions of indomitable women who blazed their own paths, broke boundaries, or shattered cultural norms. In keeping with the inspiration for the jewelry collection, this book is an ode to women, as suggested by the female name "Magnifica." This launch marks the start of a new chapter in a history filled with energy, impact, and daring creativity, with a collection of outstanding pieces at the height of High Jewelry, creativity, and artisanship, conveyed through exper-tise and craftsmanship. In a male-dominated world, Bvlgari's muses have helped forge a new perception of women thanks to their courage, resilience, and talent. Whether they may be artists, art patrons, or intellectuals, they have shared the same ability to think outside the box, reimagining their future in an unapologetic way. Based on the three pillars of stunning gems, inspiring muses, and the gifted hands of artisans and designers, Bvlgari's Magnifica book is divided into three sections—Head, Heart, and Hands—and outlines Bvlgari's new jewelry ecosystem. In addition to gorgeous photographs of jewels, the voices of the contributors to this volume, who are all women, will trace a path of encouragement and provide an example for today's women to pursue their intuitions and cultivate their talent.

A Virtual Evening with Annie Leibovitz on Wonderland

 Friday, December 10 at 5pm Pacific / 8pm Eastern

 

Join Leibovitz, one of the most influential photographers of our time, for an exclusive public, virtual event to mark the publication of Wonderland (Phaidon, November 2021) 

Fashion has been both the subject of, and the vehicle for, many of Leibovitz’s images, which have graced the covers and interiors of countless publications and magazines around the world. In conversation with her longtime editor at Phaidon, Deb Aaronson, Leibovitz will share stories from her ambitious fashion shoots—including looks by designers such Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, and Rei Kawakubo—alongside tales of her encounters with a wide and diverse range of icons: from fashion designers such as Stella McCartney and Karl Lagerfeld to Kate Moss, Serena Williams, politicians Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Nancy Pelosi, and cultural figures—Queen Elizabeth II, Lady Gaga, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie—to name a few.

Starting in 1970, when Leibovitz began creating what became her ground-breaking work for Rolling Stone, to her work at Vogue and Vanity Fair in the 1980s, and through to present day, Leibovitz will reflect on her career, the individuals she has photographed, the editors she has worked with, and how her distinctive approach has developed and evolved over the last half century.

On Friday, December 10, spend an evening with the legendary photographer as she grants you a passport to Wonderland, a world where fashion is revealed in unexpected subjects and places, and photography is celebrated in its highest form.

ABOUT THE BOOK

In Architecture Unbound, noted architecture critic Joseph Giovannini takes us to architecture’s wilder shores as he traces a century of the avant-garde to transgressive and progressive art movements that roiled Europe before and after World War I, and to the social unrest and cultural disruption of the 1960s. Manifestos produced during this pivotal and fertile period opened the way to tentative forays into an inventive, anti-authoritarian architecture in the next decade. Built projects broke onto the front pages and into public awareness in the 1980s, and took digital form in the 1990s, with large-scale international projects landing on the far side of the millennium.

As Giovannini writes in the Prologue, "With strategies of explosion, collision, and fragmentation, architects were introducing forces that dislocated architecture’s system of thought and construction predicated on gravity. Architects produced fresh astonishments, some fantastical. The buildings worked, and they worked well, but perhaps their highest and best function was to fascinate.”

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Joseph Giovannini is a practicing architect who has written on architecture and design for four decades for such publications as the New York Times, Architectural Record, Art in America, and Art Forum, and he has served as the architecture critic for New York Magazine, the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, and the Los Angeles Review of Books. He has also taught widely in graduate architecture programs.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 7 at 6 PM ET

Images Publishing and Rizzoli Bookstore invite you to meet one of the world's foremost experts on classical architecture and interiors. Phillip James Dodd will be in conversation with radio host Rob Taub about An American Renaissance: Beaux-Arts Architecture in New York City, which details the fascinating stories behind New York's Beaux-Arts buildings and the lives of those who commissioned, designed, and built them.

Please register here.

RIZZOLI IN-PERSON EVENT COVID POLICIES:

In-person events will be presented to a fully vaccinated audience at full capacity. All attendees are required to wear masks. All patrons over the age of sixteen will be required to show proof* of having completed the COVID-19 vaccination series at least 14 days prior to the date of the event. 

*Proof of vaccination will be defined as either an original vaccination card or an Excelsior Pass. 

 Registration will be required. 

About the Book

This book, which has been painstakingly researched and beautifully photographed over many years, takes a close look at 20 of the finest examples of Beaux-Arts architecture in New York City. While showing public exteriors, its focus is on the lavish interiors that are associated with the opulence of the Gilded Age—often providing a glimpse inside buildings not otherwise viewable to the public. While some of the buildings and monuments featured are world-renowned landmarks recognizable and accessible to all, others are obscure buildings that history has forgotten.

Set amid the magnificent achievements of an American Renaissance, this book recounts not only the fascinating stories of some of New York’s most famous and significant Beaux-Arts landmarks, it also recalls the lives of those who commissioned, designed, and built them. These are some of the most acclaimed architects, artists, and artisans of the day—Daniel Chester French, Cass Gilbert, Charles McKim, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Louis Comfort Tiffany, and Stanford White—and some of the most prominent millionaires in American history—Henry Clay Frick, Jay Gould, Otto Kahn, J.P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, and the ubiquitous Astor and Vanderbilt families.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Fairy Tales is an erotic folklore of short stories shot by Petra Collins starring Alexa Demie. The pair created the concept and text collaboratively. Alexa portrays nine characters that embody new stories they would have liked to see. As children, Petra and Alexa were both enamored with fairy tales, which provided an escape from their own painful realities.

Each of the nine tales are set in unique spaces, ranging from suburban homes and parking lots to fantastical sets. Petra and Alexa’s chapters of elves, mermaids, sirens, water sprites, fallen angels, fairies, witches, and banshees blend their own stories with retold fairy tales. The photos combine elements of camp, prosthetics, and shibari in a surreal update to the imagery of the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, Charles Perrault, and others. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Petra Collins is a multi-talented artist and director whose photography set the stylistic tone for much of the 2010s. Shooting since the age of 15, her work is fueled by self-discovery and a contemporary femininity which explore the complex intersection of life as a young woman online and off. Collins weaves through the worlds of art, fashion, film, and music. She is working on her first feature film, set to shoot in 2021.

Alexa Demie is an actor, musician and multi-hyphenate talent who currently stars as ‘Maddy’ in HBO’s EUPHORIA. She has starred in acclaimed A24 films and had success in creative direction and design projects. Alexa is currently working on her first EP, developing and producing film and TV, and engaged in social impact work focused on equality and representation, especially for the Latinx community and the next generation of youth.

ABOUT THE SERIES

RIZZOLI MUSIC APERITIVO

From Francis Scott Fitzgerald to Jack Kerouac, from Toni Morrison to James Baldwin, from Philip Michael Ondaatje to Geoff Dyer, from Julio Cortazar to Boris Vian, from Amiri Baraka and Ishmael Reed to Jayne Cortez, the list of international writers and poets inspired or intrigued by jazz and other musical genres goes on. Since New York City’s Rizzoli Bookstore has a long tradition of building bridges between arts genres, international scenes, and creative people, we wanted to turn our gorgeous space in NoMad into an experimental living room where live jazz and other music can be enjoyed. The Rizzoli Music Aperitivo is sponsored by Field Blend Selections and is curated by Mondo Jazz, the weekly Radio Free Brooklyn show dedicated to international jazz.

MONDO JAZZ

Mondo Jazz is a weekly program on Radio Free Brooklyn dedicated to the proposition that jazz is an international language. It is hosted every Wednesday night from 8 to 10 PM by Ludovico Granvassu, the founder and editor in chief of All About Jazz Italia. All archived episodes are available here.

FIELD BLEND SELECTIONS

Founded in January, 2017, Field Blend Selections is a new wine importing and distribution company based in New York City, serving the New York and New Jersey markets.

In both name and practice, Field Blend Selections celebrates agricultural traditions and diversity. The name is an homage to the nineteenth-century immigrants who co-planted an assortment of grape varieties in vineyards throughout the United States, many of which survive today. Alongside their vines, they often co-planted other crops, including fruits, grains, and legumes. This approach of co-mingling various plantings to achieve balance in the vineyards is now referred to as polyculture, and it is widely recognized as one of the best methods for naturally enriching soils and reducing disease. Polyculture, by replicating nature’s diverse ecosystems, produces healthier fruit without the necessity of artificial herbicides or pesticides.

About the Book: 

The elegant, clean classicism of Philip Mitchell’s style is on full display in these homes, where he masterfully incorporates a wide-ranging mix of antiques, vintage collectibles, and contemporary pieces—everything from inherited furniture collections to modern art—in rooms that are filled with memories and warmth. As a master of what he calls modern maximalism, Mitchell embraces the challenge of taking wonderful things that a homeowner already has and making more of them. Once Mitchell has established a connecting thread among a variety of disparate pieces—whether through finish, material, scale, color, texture, or line—he starts the process of building the relationships that bring a space to life.

About the Books:

All in the Family creator Norman Lear and author Jim Colucci take fans behind the scenes of the groundbreaking sitcom on the occasion of its 50th anniversary.

The face of television was changed forever in 1971 with the premiere of All in the Family. The working-class Bunker family of Queens, New York—lovable bigot Archie (Carroll O'Connor), his long-suffering “dingbat” wife Edith (Jean Stapleton), their liberal daughter Gloria (Sally Struthers), and son-in-law Mike "Meathead" Stivic (Rob Reiner)—instantly became, and half a century later still are, four of the most iconic characters in television.

In All in the Family: The Show that Changed Television, Norman Lear shares his take on fifty essential episodes that exemplify why the show remains as funny and relevant as ever. Its boundary-pushing approach to hot-button topics is examined with commentary from co-stars O’ Connor, Stapleton, Reiner, and Struthers, as well as writers, directors, and guest stars from the show.

With previously unseen notes from Lear, script pages, production designs, and a foreword by super-fan Jimmy Kimmel, this book is the ultimate companion to the seminal series and a must for fans of Lear’s shows and television comedy.

“Norman Lear,” said New Yorker critic Michael Arlen, “has a feel for what people want to see before they know they want to see it.” All in the Family, like all of the Lear shows that followed, was a turning point in television’s handling of taboo subjects such as race relations, feminism, homosexuality, war, religion, gun control, social inequity, and other controversial subjects, all of which remain in the news today.

 

Drag celebrates the fabulous current and historical influence of drag, and its talented and inspiring performers.

Since man first walked the Earth...in heels, no other art form has wielded as unique an influence on pop culture as Drag. Drag artists have now sashayed their way to snatch the crowns as the Queens of mainstream entertainment.

Through informative and witty essays chronicling over 100 years of drag, readers will embark on a Priscilla-like journey through pop culture, from television shows like The Milton Berle Show, Bosom Buddies, and RuPaul's Drag Race, films like Some Like It Hot, To Wong Foo..., and Tootsie, and Broadway shows like Hedwig and the Angry Inch, La Cage aux Folles, and Kinky Boots.

With stops in cities around the globe, and packed with interviews and commentaries on the dramas, joys, and love that "make-up" a life in wigs and heels, Drag features contributions from today's most groundbreaking and popular artists, including Bianca del Rio, Miss Coco Peru, Hedda Lettuce, Lypsinka, and Varla Jean Merman, as well as notable performers as Harvey Fierstein and Charles Busch. It includes more than 100 photos—many from performers' personal collections, and a comprehensive timeline of drag "herstory."

 

About the Authors:

Veteran television historian Jim Colucci covers television and other entertainment media on his blog Must Hear TV. He is the author of the authorized companion book Will & Grace: Fabulously Uncensored (2004), The Q Guide to the Golden Girls (2006), and the New York Times best-seller Golden Girls Forever (2016).

About the Book:

Hear ye, hear ye, hear ye! Princess Ozma of Oz, supreme ruler of the land of Oz, invites you to visit the enchanted kingdom of Oz as you never have before. THE ART OF OZ: WITCHES, WIZARDS, AND WONDERS BEYOND THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD has been sanctioned by royal proclamation.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was the best-selling American children’s book of the twentieth century, and the classic 1939 movie of this quintessential American fairy tale left a permanent mark on the hearts and imaginations of devoted fans throughout the world. In THE ART OF OZ: WITCHES, WIZARDS, AND WONDERS BEYONE THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD artist and Oz archeologist Gabriel Gale brings to life all the creatures and inhabitants from L. Frank Baum’s beloved series, many illustrated here for the first time: wicked witches and their armies, mythical beasts, elemental fairies, robots, insects, one-legged and two-sided people, and many more sky, land, sea, and underground creatures. THE ART OF OZ also debuts the first-ever “Google Map” of the Land of Oz!

Gabriel Gale has mapped the country and animated all the creatures he found there. He has sketched Emerald City the buildings and habitats of the enchanted Land. Through spectacular illustrations, in original and precise style, Gale portrays each character in detail, often with attention to anatomy, structure, size and scale. Gale’s fantastical, vivid, and delightful renderings are also accompanied by excerpts and drawings from the fourteen books in Baum’s Oz series and the most famous inhabitants of Oz—Professor H.M. Woggle-Bug, T.E., Dorothy, the Cowardly Lion, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, Toto, Glinda the Good, and the Wizard—add context to this magical endeavor. This is the perfect book for the whole family to share and for anyone entranced by the fantasy and everlasting magic of Oz.

“Gabriel Gale has almost singlehandedly brought Oz into the 21st Century in this stunning book for all ages and for the ages.”

—Michael Patrick Hearn, author of the best-selling The Annotated Wizard of Oz

About the Author:

Gabriel Gale is an architect and artist whose enchantment with the Oz books began in childhood. In 2017 and 2018, he published two books in his three-book series Ages of Oz, which launched his own conception of a 1,000-year Oz universe based on the characters and intentions of L. Frank Baum’s original books.

John Fricke is a preeminent Oz historian; his past books include two about the entire Oz phenomenon and two about the famous MGM Wizard of Oz film.

Michael Patrick Hearn is the author of the best-selling The Annotated Wizard of Oz and the world’s leading authority on L. Frank Baum and his Oz series.

- First published in 2018, this ode to the streets and people of New York has been reprinted with a new trim size and a new price- The energy and buzz of the city captured by a Dutch-born photographer in full color imagesThe photographer Richard Koek is a visual storyteller with a gift for being in the right place at the right time. For this book, he turns his gaze to the people and streetscapes of New York, capturing the diversity and energy of the city that inspires so many to come here to realize their dreams. These are photos of real New Yorkers, night and day, at work and at play, in their neighborhoods, at their jobs, and on the street. The city itself, from glass fronted buildings to sidewalk food stands, reflects the tenacity and spirit of the people who call the Big Apple home. "Richard has a unique eye for the still astonishing diversity of New Yorkers, natives or transplants. A transplant himself, there's no denying the power of Richard's personal vision of the city he has made his home. His evident talent and the works' singularity speak for themselves. - Julia Gruen, Executive Director, Keith Haring Foundation, New York


About the Author:
Dutch-Argentinean photographer Richard Koek is a visual storyteller. He shares his love of New York City and the anonymous people that live and work there on a day-to-day base. In 2018 his book NEW YORK NEW YORK was published by Terralannoo. A midprice version arrived in fall 2021. His sensibility for the complicated life in New York shows in his photos, which are rather than a decisive moment, an encouragement to viewers to form their own interpretation of his work. Every picture becomes a new narrative, unique to its beholder.  Koek decided to give up his profession as a tax lawyer to pursue his passion for photography in New York City. His work has featured in renowned titles including Interview Magazine, Stern, The New York Times and The New York Review of Books. Richard Koek lives in New York and Amsterdam.


Koek works for various international publications, companies and non-profit organizations, and has been purchased by The National Archives of Holland, The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and The Royal Tropical Institute of Amsterdam. He has exhibited work at the The Art+Commerce Festival of Emerging Photographers and Photoville Festival in NYC and at Fotofestival Naarden in The Netherlands.

About the Book:

The Go-Go’s were the first all-female rock group in history to write their own songs, play their own instruments, and reach the top of the Billboard charts with their #1 album, Beauty and the Beat. Made In Hollywood is drummer Gina Schock’s personal account of the band, which includes a treasure trove of photographs and memorabilia collected over the course of her 40-year career.

The Go-Go’s debut album, Beauty and the Beat, rose to the top of the charts in 1981 and their hit songs "We Got the Beat," "Our Lips Are Sealed," “Vacation,” and "Head Over Heels" (to name a few) served as a soundtrack to our lives in the ‘80s.

Now, after the release of their Critics Choice Award-winning Showtime documentary, and in anticipation of their forthcoming induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and their 2021 West Coast shows, Gina takes fans behind the scenes for a rare look at her personal images documenting the band's wild journey to the heights of fame and stardom. Featuring posters, photographs, Polaroids, and other memorabilia from her archives, Made In Hollywood also includes stories from each member of the Go-Go’s, along with other cultural luminaries like Kate Pierson, Jodie Foster, Dave Stewart, Martha Quinn, and Paul Reubens.

HEARING THINGS 

 

RIZZOLI MUSIC APERITIVO
The Music Series at Rizzoli Bookstore 

Hearing Things plays instrumental music recalling an era where instrumental hits were all the rage. Through the compositional imagination of saxophonist Matt Bauder, their material channels early rock & roll, surf, jump blues and north african soul while retaining a modern surrealist approach. Bauder’s unique perspective comes partly from working with such free jazz luminaries as Anthony Braxton, Rob Mazurek and Taylor Ho Bynum as well as indie rock icons Arcade Fire, Iron & Wine and Jovanotti.

 

Vinnie Sperrazza (drums) JP Schlegelmilch (organ) are mainstays in the Brooklyn experimental jazz scene and separate the band from the garden variety garage rock throwback.

 Their debut LP “Here’s Hearing Things'' was released in 2019 on Yeggs Records.

This event is ticketed. The ticket is $20 and includes complimentary wine glass.

Rizzoli Music Aperitivo - The Concept

 From Francis Scott Fitzgerald to Jack Kerouac, from Toni Morrison to James Baldwin, from Philip Michael Ondaatje to Geoff Dyer, from Julio Cortazar to Boris Vian, from Amiri Baraka and Ishmael Reed to Jayne Cortez, the list of international writers and poets inspired or intrigued by jazz and other musical genres goes on. Since New York City’s Rizzoli Bookstore has a long tradition of building bridges between arts genres, international scenes and creative people, we wanted to turn our gorgeous space in NoMad into an experimental living room where live jazz and other music can be enjoyed. The “Rizzoli Music Aperitivo” is sponsored by FieldBlendSelections and is curated by Mondo Jazz, the weekly Radio Free Brooklyn show dedicated to international jazz (https://radiofreebrooklyn.com/show/mondo-jazz).

 


MONDO JAZZ
Mondo Jazz is a weekly program on Radio Free Brooklyn dedicated to the proposition that jazz is an international language. It is hosted every Wednesday night from 8 to 10 PM by Ludovico Granvassu, the founder and editor in chief of All About Jazz Italia. All archived episodes are available at https://www.allaboutjazz.com/php/contributor_articles.php?id=200

FIELD BLEND SELECTIONS
Founded in January, 2017, Field Blend Selections is a new wine importing and distribution company based in New York City, serving the New York and New Jersey markets. 

In both name and practice, Field Blend Selections celebrates agricultural traditions and diversity. The name is an homage to the nineteenth-century immigrants who co-planted an assortment of grape varieties in vineyards throughout the United States, many of which survive today. Alongside their vines, they often co-planted other crops, including fruits, grains, and legumes. This approach of co-mingling various plantings to achieve balance in the vineyards is now referred to as polyculture, and it is widely recognized as one of the best methods for naturally enriching soils and reducing disease. Polyculture, by replicating nature’s diverse ecosystems, produces healthier fruit without the necessity of artificial herbicides or pesticides.

About the Author:
Rosalind Fox Solomon (b. 1930), an American artist based in New York City, is celebrated for her portraits and for her connection to human suffering, ritual, survival, and struggle.  Fox Solomon’s work flows back and forth between the personal and the universal.  Her talent lies in her capacity to interpret and photograph both the social elements of the places she travels to, and the obsessions and anxieties that travel with her.  

For the past 45 years, Fox Solomon has created challenging bodies of work, shown in nearly 30 solo exhibitions and 100 group exhibitions, and in the collections of over 50 museums worldwide.

Lynne Tillman’s recent writing includes the novel Men and Apparitions; a story “The Dead Live Longer” (N+1 journal), and essays: “Homage to Homage,” in Steve Locke: Homage to the Auction Block (Russell Lamontagne Gallery); on Kaitlin Maxwell’s photographs (Granta); and Steve Pyke’s 9/11 photographs (Aperture). In August 2022, a book-length, autobiographical essay, MOTHERCARE, will appear, and, in 2023, a book of selected stories, both from Soft Skull Press. Tillman has received a Guggenheim Fellowship and a Creative Capital/Warhol Foundation grant for Arts Writing, and is Professor/Writer in Residence at The University at Albany.

About the Book:

An intimate and comprehensive visual history tracing the incredible musical career and creative life of The Rolling Stones.

For almost 60 years The Rolling Stones have helped shape popular culture around the world. The Rolling Stones: Unzipped traces their impact and influence on rock music, art, design, fashion, photography, and filmmaking. Packed with evocative archive photos, artworks, outtakes, and memorabilia, this stunning book immerses readers in the world of the Stones.

Peppered throughout with insightful new commentary by Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ronnie Wood, this volume also features an incisive history of the band by Anthony DeCurtis, as well as essays by Buddy Guy, Don Was, Anna Sui, John Varvatos, Martin Scorsese, Shephard Fairey, Patrick Woodroffe, and Willie Williams. In addition to stills from films, videos, and documentary footage, vivid photographic sections showcase the Stones’ musical instruments, their stage clothing, album cover designs, notebooks with lyrics, and tape boxes from the original recording sessions.

A bold and captivating record of “the greatest rock ’n’ roll band in the world,” The Rolling Stones: Unzipped coincides with the band’s Fall 2021 “No Filter” US tour and a major exhibition opening outside Toronto, Canada in late November.

 

Reviews:

“There are books about the Stones, there are books by the Stones… and there are books that, frankly, are the Stones. Or, at least, there are now… Unzipped is the visual equivalent of putting on your favorite clutch of Stonesian albums and just losing yourself for a day or so.” – Goldmine 

“A must for Stones’ fans and really anyone who loves rock ’n’ roll.” – WAG Magazine

“A lavish tribute to [the band’s] iconography… A very plush, surprisingly eye-opening package, not unlike the Stones' musical body of work.” – Psychobabble

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 5TH, 6PM

Please join us for an in person event Shohei Shigematsu, OMA Partner (author) and Jason Long, OMA Partner (author), celebrating the publication of "OMA NY: Search Term" published by Rizzoli International Publications.

PLEASE REGISTER HERE

About the Book:

The long-anticipated monograph on OMA New York by Shohei Shigematsu and Jason Long is sure to be the design and architecture book of the season. Presenting more than 20 radical architectural projects from a new generation of the firm, this mammoth volume is the first compendium by OMA, since Content and Rem Koolhaas's S, M, L, XL. Well into its fourth decade, the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), founded by Rem Koolhaas in 1975, remains one of the most influential and successful practices of its kind. OMA describes itself as "a firm operating within the traditional boundaries of architecture and urbanism that applies architectural thinking to domains beyond." OMA New York, has grown from an American outpost to a full-fledged operation with its own attitudes, contributing to the evolution of the globally acclaimed office. Through a diversity of projects, the firm has transformed our understanding of the city and our evolving relationship with art, fashion, food, sustainability, and other quintessentially twenty-first-century preoccupations. The works presented here elaborate on OMA's philosophy even as they expand its portfolio geographically. Featured projects (led by partners Shohei Shigematsu and Jason Long) include residential skyscrapers in New York, Miami, and San Francisco, mixed-use developments in cities from Tokyo to Houston, and projects like 11th Street Bridge Park in the public realm, alongside more intimate spaces such as the studio for renowned Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang. Permanent structures, such as Milstein Hall at Cornell University, the new galleries of Quebec's Musée National des Beaux-Arts, a cultural forum and neighborhood for Faena in Miami, and the expansion of museums such as the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo and the New Museum in Manhattan, contrast vividly with temporary interventions such as the Manus x Machina exhibition at the Met Costume Institute and the sculptural installation of soaring concrete columns for An Occupation of Loss.In between projects are dialogues with leading policy makers, museum directors, artists, fashion designers, musicians, chefs, and curators--Christopher Hawthorne, Lisa Phillips and Massimiliano Gioni, Taryn Simon, Iris van Herpen, Virgil Abloh, David Byrne, Alice Waters, and Cecilia Alemani--who provide insight onto areas of the firm's interests and preoccupations beyond the realm of architecture.

Wolin. The event concludes with a  book signing of the fully illustrated " The Shadow of The Sun: Ross Bleckner and  Zachari Logan " .

*Proof of vaccination will be defined as either an original vaccination card or an Excelsior Pass. 

 Registration will be required. 


About the artists:

 Ross Bleckner was born in New York City and grew up in Hewlett, NY.  He received a Bachelor of Arts from New York University in 1971, a Master of Fine Arts from Cal Arts in 1973, and he has taught at many of the nation’s most prestigious universities. During his career, Bleckner has exhibited throughout the United States and internationally including Kunsthalle Zurich and Moderna Museet, Stockholm, among many others. In 1995, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum held a major retrospective of his paintings. Works by Bleckner are in public and private collections around the globe.

 Zachari Logan holds an MFA from the University of Saskatchewan. Since graduating in 2008, Logan has maintained a studio practice focusing on drawing, painting, ceramics and installation. Numerous artist residencies from New York to Bulgaria are important to his research on the growing nature/culture divide. His work has been exhibited widely, in group and solo exhibitions in the Americas, Europe, and India and can be found in collections worldwide.  

 

 

About the book:

The Shadow of the Sun: Ross Bleckner and Zachari Logan pairs New York-based painter Ross Bleckner with Canadian artist Zachari Logan to remarkable effect. The artists share a sensibility in artmaking that make for a powerful concert of ideas, forms and materials in both their solo and collaborative works, richly illustrated in this new hardcover catalogue.

 

On the surface it may appear that Bleckner and Logan have developed oeuvres that are stylistically disparate. The visual references of style are only part of the picture. On a deeper level the catalogue proposes aesthetic links that underpin each artist’s work. They are the means to create a context of understanding for shared notions of visibility/invisibility, sexuality, selfhood, contemporary landscapes, transcendence, the fragility of love and the omnipresence of sickness and death. Both artists share an appetite for representing societal and personal melancholy and reverential beauty. The result is a range of strategies around image-making to inspire a generation of artists nation-wide and abroad.

Between 1897 and 1903 James Reuel Smith rode around Manhattan and the Bronx on his bicycle with a camera and a tripod and documented the springs and wells that were disappearing as the city grew and as Croton water reached more residents. He left money in his will for the New-York Historical Society to publish a book of the work which they did in 1938. Stanley revisited every site in the book on foot or by bicycle between 2016 and 2020. ?Springs and Wells? combines the photography of Stanley Greenberg with all the original photography and complete original texts by James Reuel Smith.
