    Ever since the early 1970s, sculptor Charles Ray's protean practice has yielded some of the most memorable objects and experiences in contemporary art, causing us to confront, as Peter Schjeldahl has written, "elegant, deadpan fabrications that flip wild switches in our minds." In 1987's "Ink Line," for example, he sent a single stream of ink flowing to the middle of a gallery's floor in a slender column; outside the 1993 Whitney Biennial he parked a massive replica of a toy fire engine. His recent work is just as alluring and unsettling: a steel sculpture of a handheld bird, a poster of an ominous pumpkin, an intricate cast aluminum sculpture of a tractor. Charles Ray surveys the work the artist has made in the past dozen years; an interview by Michael Fried and an essay by John Kelsey complement texts written about each work by Ray himself.

  • Luc Tuymans: La Pelle documents the most ambitious monographic exhibition of the work of Luc Tuymans (born 1958). The Pinault Collection at Palazzo Grassi has in the past mounted exhibitions of the work of Sigmar Polke, Damien Hirst and Urs Fischer in its elegant interiors along the Grand Canal in Venice. It was thus the appropriate venue for this survey of Luc Tuymans' work. Quiet, restrained and at times unsettling, his works engage with questions of history and its representation and with everyday subject matter in an unfamiliar and eerie light. Painted from preexisting imagery, they often appear slightly out-of-focus and sparsely colored, like third-degree abstractions from reality. Whereas earlier works were based on magazine pictures, drawings, television footage and Polaroids, recent source images include material accessed online and the artist's own iPhone photos, printed out and sometimes rephotographed several times.

  • Anglais Bruce Nauman : contrapposto studies

    • 28 Septembre 2021

    «Contrapposto» se réfère à une pose dans laquelle le sujet humain est légèrement tourné de sorte que le buste est positionné hors de l'axe du bas du corps. L'artiste américain Bruce Nauman (né en 1941) explore cet ancien concept artistique avec son projet le plus récent, dans lequel il revisite sa pièce vidéo de 1968, Walk with Contrapposto, qui dépeint la tentative de l'artiste de tenir la pose classique alors qu'il marche dans un couloir étroit. Bruce Nauman utilise les technologies de manipulation numérique d'aujourd'hui pour revisiter ces premiers travaux dans un contexte entièrement nouveau. Ce volume présente la documentation de la nouvelle série de 2015 à 2019 ainsi que la vidéo originale.

    In his sculptural practice, American artist Charles Ray (born 1953) has long been fascinated by the concept of representation, the depiction of the human form and questions of scale. Known for his keen sense of--and respect for--the uncanny, Ray has carved a widely admired path that crisscrosses the arenas of minimalism and conceptual art, while continually pushing the boundaries of visual perception. This book marks the long-term exhibition of works at Glenstone Museum selected by the artist, including Baled Truck (2013), a sculpture made of solid machined stainless steel, emblematic of the artist's meticulous fabrication process. It also includes a conversation with--and text by--the artist and installation photography.

    A ghostly portrait of an untenanted Venice.

    In these stark black-and-white photographs, gallerist and photographer Mario Peliti (born 1958) transforms our perceptions of Venice. All the pictures were taken under the same lighting conditions, with no people. The lack of human presence induces the viewer to reflect on the city's possible fate as a city with no inhabitants.
