Matthew Benedict: The Mage’s Pantry

2008

Texts by Charles Beyer, Nayland Blake, and Oliver Zybok

Published by Hatje Cantz


Some of the seemingly nostalgic works by Matthew Benedict recall illustrations from old children’s books, with pirates, saints, and Freemasons recurrently populating his paintings, photographs, embroidered pieces, and sculptures. The quiet, beautiful, and yet uncanny dreamworld of his symbolic figures, and his allegorical references to literature or history, deliberately elude comprehension in the mind of the uninitiated observer. This is the first monograph to examine Benedict's entire oeuvre, as well as its references to illustrative and decorative conventions and techniques.

Michael Buthe: Retrospective

2015

Texts by Okwui Enwezor, Fanni Fetzer, Philippe Van Cauteren, Martin Germann, Dominik Müller, Heinz Stahlhut, and Ulrich Wilmes

Published by Hatje Cantz


Edited by Kunstmuseum Lucerne, S.M.A.K., Ghent, and Haus der Kunst, Munich, published on the occasion of Buthe's recent retrospective.Like a lived life, Buthe believed that the artwork too should constantly transform. This guiding idea is revealed not only in the history of the origins of specific works but also in Michael Buthe’s oeuvre as a whole. Always joyfully drawing on stimuli from all directions, he began with works that came from Art Informel and interlaced the formal rigor or geometric abstraction. Then, he created works that are sparse and liberated from earthly gravity, deriving their inspiration from the visions of both Western and Eastern mystics…

Anxious Objects: Willie Cole’s Favorite Brands

2006

Texts by Willie Cole, Leslie King-Hammond, and Lowery Stokes Sims

Published by Montclair Art Museum, Rutgers University Press


This publication accompanies the first survey of Willie Cole’s work from the late 1980s to present. The exhibition and catalogue focus on Cole’s mixed media sculptural works made from salvaged irons, blow dryers, ironing boards, high-heeled shoes, lawn jockeys, and bicycle parts; paintings and drawings made of iron scorch marks, and prints. Cole’s consumer and domestic objects assume the appearance of objects from another time, culture, or place, transformed into powerful cultural and spiritual evocations referencing African and global culture.

Complex Conversations: Willie Cole Sculptures and Wall Works

2013

Texts by Patterson Sims

Published by the Gwen Frostic School of Art, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo MI


The harsh realities of inner city African-American life and his immediate family have always been the underpinning of the sculptures, paintings, drawings, and prints of Willie Cole (b. 1955), as well as his less-known films, music, and writing. As enduringly local as Cole’s existence has been, his art has engaged in a continuous conversation with national identity and world culture. Using everyday consumer objects as means to examine race, history, and belief systems, Cole’s art shifts back and forth from the personal to the universal, from his African-American Baptist heritage to international, pan-spiritual perspectives.

Texts by Ana María Risco and Bruno Cuneo. Edited by Macarena García.

Published by the Museo de Artes Visuales, MAVI, Santiago de Chile


Mr Dittborn has a proclivity for “connecting the unconnected.” He pins the silkscreens of appropriated pictures to panels and improvises various compositions before having them sewn into place. “I try to work with a very different theology of the images. They belong to popular culture or prison culture,” he says. “The connections make light, like a match.”

Texts by Jean Fisher, Colm Tóibín, and Susan McKay. Edited by Rosalind Horne.

Published by Matt’s Gallery, London


Doherty’s continuous and probing investigation of the politics and representations of his native Northern Ireland have set him apart as one of the most important artists of his generation. His work is rooted within political discourse and directs attention to the nature of the language by which conflict is represented and communicated in our society. ‘UNSEEN’ presents for the very first time works produced by Doherty that were specifically made on and in response to the streets of his native city of Derry and its surrounding hinterland.

Diango Hernández: Living Rooms, a Survey

2011

Texts by Yilmaz Dziewior, Luigi Fassi, and Vanessa Joan Müller

Published by Silvana Editoriale


Exploring everyday ideas and found objects, Diango Hernández combines their formal beauty with the embedded meaning of their former use to create works full of symbolic aura and a potential for change. His exhibition indicates that ideas concerning changes in society can start at home, perhaps in the living room, but they certainly will not stop there but will spread into the world.

Texts by Simone Scholten

Published by Diese Publikation


Stefan Kürten has chosen this paradoxical phrase as the title for the companion publication to his exhibition at the Galerie der Stadt Backnang, which provides a comprehensive look at his work in recent years. Stefan Kürten has consistently devoted himself to the thematic complex of private life for many years. With all of the emotional significance given to the private retreat space, it is no wonder that dwellings seem to turn all by themselves into surfaces for the projection of personal dreams and notions of happiness.

Stefan Kürten: Here Comes the Night

2014

Texts by Stephan Berg and Oliver Zybok

Published by Ostfildern: Hatje Cantz


“Even though the houses and gardens that distinguish my paintings are drawn from real houses and gardens, taken from my own photos, books, and magazines, they are somehow transformed into the stuff of daydreams or nightmares. They are devoid of human presence, the apparent idyll feels isolated to the point of oppression. Nonetheless, there seem to be some sort of a presence, like a hidden secret, something untold and left to our imaginations.” – Stefan Kürten

Stefan Kürten: Blue days, black nights

2004

Texts by David Frankel and David Gray

Published by Alexander and Bonin, Hosfelt Gallery, Galerie Michael Cosar, and Galerie Ute Parduhn


The buildings so often the subjects of Kürten’s painting come in a range of twentieth-century manners, sometimes stocked with the cold glass and flat surfaces of modernism, sometimes more simple and friendly, in the style of the suburb or garden city. These pictures often treat some balance between the human home and nature. There are never any people in Kürten’s paintings, which makes their utopianism both a little easier to pull off and a little unreal. Distant, still - the work describes nothing attainable, at least not in this life.

The exhibition concentrates on Macchi’s artistic production over the last seven years, supplemented by a smaller body of older work which acts as a sort of accent. The presentation at S.M.A.K. was worked out in close cooperation with Macchi and was designed as an all-embracing atmospheric circuit that exposes several intuitive atmospheres and clusters works around such instinctive aspects as music, light and shade, blurring, openness and delineation, which are to be found in Macchi’s work.

Sylvia Plimack Mangold: Landscape and Trees

2012

Texts by Cheryl Brutvan

Published by the Norton Museum of Art


Sylvia Plimack Mangold: Landscape and Trees is the second exhibition of RAW (Recognition of Art by Women). This collection presents for the first time an exhibition of the remarkable paintings and works on paper that Sylvia Plimack Mangold has created over a thirty year period. The resulting compositions, a result of her devoted observation of the trees surrounding her home and studio, are less a document than a manifestation of intangible qualities, including the experience of looking and the feeling of time passing.

Texts by Helen Molesworth

Published by Alexander and Bonin


For the past twenty years Sylvia Plimack Mangold has been painting the trees on her land in Washingtonville, New York. Plimack Mangold’s practice is daily, seasonal, and annual; to look at the whole of her oeuvre is to feel the coexistence of linear and cyclical time. Hence the tree paintings permit an exploration of variation and difference. They privilege change over stasis, or, to put it more precisely, they make an issue of the dialectical tension between change and stasis.

Natural Sympathies: Sylvia Plimack Mangold and Lovis Corinth Works on Paper

2009

Texts by Ann Finholt

Published by Alexander and Bonin


For nearly 30 years, contemporary artist Sylvia Plimack Mangold has investigated the natural setting surrounding her home in the Hudson Valley region of New York. Although she painted the first landscape of her professional career in 1977, the imagery of trees that has absorbed her for the past several decades emerged definitively in the mid-1980s. The shift in subject matter marked a turning point in Plimack Mangold’s work and closely coincided with her discovery of the oeuvre of artist Lovis Corinth (1858-1925). Corinth was a critical influence and inspiration and she turned her attention to individual trees, and in Natural Sympathies, prints, drawings, and watercolors by Plimack Mangold executed during the past twenty-five years and prints and drawing by Corinth from her collection illuminate the evolution of Plimack Mangold’s landscape investigations and artistic working process in the context of her personal encounter with Corinth.

2016

Texts by Mary Schneider Enriquez, Narayan Khandekar, and Doris Salcedo. Edited by Micah Buis, Sarah Kuschner and Cheryl Pappas.

Published by Harvard Art Museums


Salcedo has long been interested in creating works that respond to the violence that has roiled her native Colombia. However, since gaining wide acclaim in the 1990s, she has broadened her approach to address both past and present violence faced by societies around the world. Salcedo unites a desire to mourn and acknowledge the forgotten with a deep commitment to challenge and extend the boundaries of the materials she uses in doing so. Today, the escalation of civil violence in the United States as well as abroad makes her works more resonant and her artistic project all the more urgent.

Published by the Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art


The 9th Hiroshima Art Prize recipient, Ms. Doris Salcedo, is an artist who has consistently expressed that art has a potential power of strong resistance against the widespread violence and discrimination that continues to plague the world. This exhibition consists of two large-scale installations that transform the entire display space into a memorial for the dead. These works are Salcedo’s response to the tragedy of Hiroshima, a city which suffered violence of a scale previously unknown in human history. They serve as a silent prayer for the dead and function as a plea for rebirth that extends beyond lament.

Published by the New Museum of Contemporary Art


Doris Salcedo’s work gives visible and concrete form to the inexpressible effects of terror, pain, and destruction which are the stock-in-trade of repressive political and military regimes, specifically those in her native Colombia. That it does so without recourse to the literal underscores the extraordinary complexity of her endeavor, which investigates the relationship between the intimate, poetic, and unique nature of an individual’s life and the shattering histories of power and control to which it can be subjected.

Paul Thek in Process

2012

Texts by Susanne Neubauer

Published by JRP Ringier


Paul Thek in Process evolves out of the discovery of an unrealized publication project initiated while installing his first space-filling environment, Pyramid/A Work in Progress at the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, in the winter of 1971, which was to have been released for documenta 5. Paul Thek in Process evaluates the complex organizational and conceptual task of the installation’s eventual realization, and offers an exhibition history written with a view from the inside, with particular attention paid to the status of the ephemeral objects that remain as contingent representatives of the lost work. The book contains a treasure trove of previously unpublished photographs recording the installation at the Moderna Museet, as well as all of the surviving correspondence between Thek and the museum relating to the conception of the show, work-related ephemera, and press coverage of the exhibition.
