EXHIBITOR PROJECTS



Archive Books

                Archive Books will launch a new book by Warren Neidich entitled The Glossary of Cognitive Activism, which accompanies and informs his three-volume publication, The Psychopathologies of Cognitive Capitalism Part 1, 2 and 3, previously published by Archive Books. This newly published text creates a dictionary of terms with which to understand the ways and means new forms of power have been accumulated through Neural Capitalism. Archive Books will also present, for the first time in the United States, Neidich’s multicolored neon wall installation/mind map entitled The Statisticon Neon.



BATT Coop

                BATT Coop is a Paris-based collective dedicated to collecting, producing, and cataloging artists’ books, which mostly circulate in small circuits without any thematic or genre restrictions. From zine-making to photography, and from illustration to visual, technical, or intellectual experimentation, BATT Coop champions all artistic practices related to print, beyond mere books. BATT Coop was created out of  the lack of spaces able to answer the expectations of the makers, publishers, lovers, or collectors of these kinds of publications. BATT Coop brings a contemporary approach to printmaking, working from both the private archives collected by Galerie P38 and with the production power of the Paris Print Club (a printing studio using traditional printing methods).The presentation will include a full spectrum of over 2,000 publications and posters alongside a selection of out of print publications curated by Librairie Morins.



Gagosian Gallery

                Gagosian Gallery presents a new double album, published by The Vinyl Factory, of Taryn Simon’s 2016 performance An Occupation of Loss. In this work, professional mourners simultaneously broadcasted their lamentations, many of which date back to pre-Islamic and pre-Christian times. Their sonic mournings were performed in recitations that include Northern Albanian laments, which seek to excavate “uncried words”; Wayuu laments, which safeguard the soul’s passage to the Milky Way; Greek Epirotic laments, which bind the story of a life with its afterlife; and Yazidi laments, which map a topography of displacement and exile.
                The accompanying 80-page book presents the laments, their English translations, and Simon’s portraits of the performers. A section documenting the performers’ visa application processes foregrounds the underlying structures of global exchange, the movement of bodies across borders, and the hierarchies of art and culture. The installation includes listening stations where visitors can hear the mourners' laments. An Occupation of Loss was co-commissioned by Artangel and Park Avenue Armory.


Little Big Man Books

                Little Big Man Books presents Coming of Age, a curated group exhibition by Virgil Abloh. The exhibition centers on male youth, offering a diverse and complex look at boyhood that traverses class, race, social economics, subcultures, isolation, and camaraderie. The exhibition will include an international lineup of established and emerging talent, with Nobuyoshi Araki, Nick Waplington, Ed Templeton, Bafic, Jim Goldberg, and Mohamed Bourouissa, among others. Coming of Age offers no answers or solutions, but does wake the longing for a simpler, more naive and optimistic time.


Lisson Gallery

                Lisson Gallery is pleased to present THE ANNOTATED READER, a publication-as-exhibition and exhibition-as-publication, featuring 281 responses and remarks on a chosen piece of writing. Ryan Gander and Jonathan P. Watts invite a range of contemporary artists, designers, writers, institutional founders, and musicians to answer the question: “Is there one piece of writing that you would want with you for company in the small hours?”
                The compiled texts—with personal annotations and notes by contributors including Marina Abramović, Art & Language, Ragnar Kjartansson, Sarah Lucas, and Hans Ulrich Obrist—are newly printed as a book and exhibited as stacks of loose sheets hanging from the walls, so that visitors are able to compile their own ANNOTATED READER. In addition, a vending machine distributes USBs containing the entire PDF of submissions.



Three Star Books

               Three Star Books will exhibit four new, exciting projects by artists Frank Benson, Cheryl Donegan with Kenneth Goldsmith, Cyprien Gaillard, and Raffaella della Olga.
                Cyprien Gaillard will present NIGHTLIFE, an outstanding corpus of over 580 night photographs from 2011 to 2019, edited and designed by the artist. Frank Benson will introduce CATALOG 1, a unique way to apprehend the artist’s precise elaboration of four sculptures, including Juliana (2014) and Castaway (2016). CATALOG 1 also includes three-dimensional images to be seen with anaglyph glasses. Cheryl Donegan partners with poet Kenneth Goldsmith for PEELS, an extraordinary volume that combines Donegan’s colorful visual work with Goldsmith’s distinct writing style. Lastly, Raffaella Della Olga will present her unique books that are entirely crafted with modified typewriters.

‘TILL THE LAST GASP’, A Graphzine History 1975-2005                ‘TILL THE LAST GASP’, A Graphzine History 1975-2005, showcases a largely undocumented movement of independent artists’ books and fanzine publications called Graphzines, which emerged in France beginning in 1975. The Graphzine movement rose from the ashes of 1960's underground free press and comix, revitalized by the punk generation. Its artists-pioneers developed and collected radical forms of drawing, obsessing over the reproduction and collection of provocative images. There was a strong link with the American underground art scene since Graphzine’s inception, with collaborative publishing projects being produced from both sides of the Atlantic. The exhibition will present a collection of over 300 zines, books, and silkscreen posters from 1975-2005, closing with counterparts from Providence's Fort Thunder scene. Three generations of international artists will be exhibited together for the first time. Graphzine is curated by Manuel Morin / Galerie P38, and presented by BATT, a non-profit organization engaged in preserving this quintessential movement’s complete archives.

Torpedo Press

                Torpedo Press presents These Are Situationist Times!—a digitization and publication project devoted to The Situationist Times (1962–67), a magazine edited and published by the Dutch artist Jacqueline de Jong. Throughout its six remarkably diverse issues, The Situationist Times challenged the notion of what it means to be a situationist, as well as traditional understandings of how culture is created, formatted, and shared. Developed by Ellef Prestsæter and Torpedo, These Are Situationist Times! brings together an international group of artists, activists, and scholars to investigate the magazine’s history and probe its contemporary relevance.

COURTYARD PROJECTS


Cybernetics Library

                The Cybernetics Library is an art and research collective built around physical and digital library collections. Through its continually evolving collection and technological components, the library aims to generate feedback between publications, digital information, physical installations, and the readers themselves. We consider how dynamics of bias and oppression are perpetuated through technological systems, and develop public programs to ask how we might create possibilities to challenge and affect those systems.

Endless Editions

                Endless Editions presents From Zero to Kunst Klubb: a five+ year history of curatorial and publishing projects. Founded in 2014, Endless Editions’ mission is to support emerging artists and develop a community within artists’ books. This space will feature the launch of Endless Editions’ digital catalog of published titles, an exhibition of works and ephemera, as well as panel discussions and risograph workshops led by artists and friends. Co-founder Paul John will guide conversations and reflections alongside current Operations Manager Hannah Coleman, Bi-Coastal Representative Alick Shiu, and many other Endless Alumni. From the Copy Shop Residency, work exchange program, and unique book projects, to SPRTS, Salonukahs, Biennials, and book fairs, all things Endless will be explored and on display.

The Free Black Women’s Library

                The Free Black Women’s Library is a mobile interactive library that features over 1,200 books written by Black women, as well as workshops, performances, film screenings, performative readings, book talks and radical conversation. The library works as a one for one trading system: bring a book written by a Black woman, in exchange for another one to read. 

NYPL Picture Collection Outpost

                NYPL Picture Collection Outpost is a special selection of the largest browsable analog image archive in any public library system, with over one million pictures in over 12,000 subject headings. The Picture Collection was established in 1915 and built one image at a time by humans, not algorithms. Amoebas are filed under MICROORGANISMS, Beatniks are under BOHEMIAN LIFE, GIANTS include both fairy tale and real. For the NYABF, artist Jason Fulford has made selections from this expansive archive and alongside NYPL librarians, will facilitate its exploration. Come visit the courtyard outpost and browse this collection of images.
