    Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Whale and Star Press Modeled after the famed TV sci-fi series The X-Files, The &-Files gathers together a covert body of documents following the long and often controversial career of Art & Text, one of the landmark contemporary art magazines of the 1980s and 1990s. Founded in Melbourne, Australia, in 1981 by Paul Taylor (1957–92), who soon moved to New York City to make his mark as an art critic, the magazine went on to become one of a handful of international art magazines that succeeded in capturing the turmoil and passing brilliance of that period of postmodernism.Perceived through the eyes and ears of its longtime publisher and editor Paul Foss, The &-Files is comprised of an open letter, a lengthy interview, two questionnaires, and other commentaries and bibliographies, offering a unique insider account of the extraordinary advantages and pitfalls of publishing an art magazine.
  • The 'Do-it-Yourself' Artwork: Participation from Fluxus to New Media (Rethinking Art's Histories)

    Viewers of contemporary art are often invited to involve themselves actively in artworks, by entering installations, touching objects, performing instructions or clicking on interactive websites. Why have artists sought to engage spectators in these new forms of participation? In what ways does active participation affect the viewer's experience and the status of the artwork? Spanning a range of practices including kinetic art, happenings, environments, performance, installations, relational and new media art from the 1950s to the present, this critical anthology sheds light on the history and specificity of artworks that only come to life when you -- the viewer -- are invited to "do it yourself." Rather than a specialist topic in the history of twentieth- and twenty-first century art, the "do-it-yourself" artwork raises broader issues concerning the role of the viewer in art, the status of the artwork, and the socio-political relations between art and its contexts.

    Before gaining recognition for his radical performance art, Vito Acconci experimented in the burgeoning downtown New York poetry scene. Collaborating with such future art world celebrities Sol LeWitt and Robert Smithson, Acconci would coedit an influential (but ultimately short-lived) experimental poetry and conceptual art magazine. Now, as part of Ugly Duckling Presse's Lost Literarture Series, the complete run of '0 to 9' is brought backinto print in its full mimeographed glory. Featuring works from 70 renowned artists and poets, readers can glimpse the first appearance of influential works as Sol LeWitt's 'Sentences on Conceptual Art' and more!

    This new gorgeous and diverse collection documents the exhibition 00 at the Barbara Gladstone Gallery in New York. For this exhibition, over one hundred prominent contemporary artists were asked to submit works on paper that were made this year--in '00'. 00 investigates the act of drawing as a vital necessity that transcends the bounds of age, nationality, scale, content, process, and concept. The richness of the medium is reflected by the diversity of the participating artists, who include: Acconci Studio, Kai Althoff, John Baldessari, Miroslaw Balka, Matthew Barney, John Bock, Louise Bourgeois, Cecily Brown, Vija Celmins, Francesco Clemente, Michael Craig-Martin, John Currin, Roy Dowell, Marlene Dumas, Carroll Dunham, Rachel Feinstein, Tim Gardner, April Gornik, Arturo Herrera, Gary Hume, Sol LeWitt, Anish Kapoor, Ellsworth Kelly, Yayoi Kusama, Mark Manders, Brice Marden, Chris Ofili, Elizabeth Peyton, Elle Phelan, Lari Pittman, Richard Prince, Charles Ray, Gregor Schneider, Richard Serra, Serse, Takashi Murakami, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Rosemarie Trockel, Kara Walker, Lawrence Weiner, and Christopher Wool. The resulting exhibition and its accompanying catalogue--including an illuminating essay by the curator and writer Klaus Kertess--act as a definitive survey of the practice of drawing at the present moment.
