    • Pictures of Nothing: Abstract Art since Pollock


    • VARNEDOE, KIRK. Pictures of Nothing: Abstract Art since Pollock. Foreword by Earl A. Powell III, preface by Adam Gopnik; xvii and 302 pp., roughly 20 color and b&w illustrations. 4to, cloth. Princeton and Oxford, Princeton University Press, 2006.
      These A.W. Mellon lectures, edited and reproduced here with their illustrations, were delivered to overflow audiences at the National Gallery of Art in Washington in the spring of 2003, just months before Kirk Varnedoe died. Conceived as a statement of his faith in modern art, he addresses the skeptical attitudes and misunderstandings that we often bring to our experience of abstract art, and challenges the received wisdom about distinctions between abstraction and representation, modernism and postmodernism, minimalism and pop. A fascinating and engaging tour of half a century of art.

    • CELANT, GERMANO et al. When Attitudes Become Form, Bern 1969 / Venice 2013. 700 pages, illustrated throughout in color. 4to, cloth. Venice. Fondazione Prada, 2013.
      This fascinating catalogue documents, debates, and deconstructs Harald Szeeman's landmark 1969 exhibition "Live in Your Head. When Attitudes Become Form" in the context of it's recreation this year in Venice through the auspices of the Prada Foundation. The presentation of the material follows a timeline-like logic. The first part documents the installation of the original exhibition in photographs,. The second part consists of interviews (Thomas Demand and Rem Koolhaus were collaborators) and wide-ranging essays by a roster of critics. The third part documents the recreation of the original exhibition in photographs and includes a register of works from both shows. Don't be put off by the size of this book. It's a tome but there's a scholarly energy here that repays repeat visits.
