Abstract Resistance By Yasmil Raymond et al.
eBook (PDF): $9.99
Download immediately.
True to its title, the exhibition Abstract Resistance considers the metaphor of “resistance” as a complex political and compositional force defining art of the past half-century. Starting... More > with Michel Foucault’s assertion that “where there is power, there is resistance,” it explores art made since World War II that has been shaped by traumatic historical events in complex ways. Rather than creating an explicit art of social protest, artists have responded to violence and upheaval with a type of art that rejects comforting moral certainties. Such art is resistant to interpretation; it withholds information, it tends to evade identification, and certainly it protests interrogation.< Less

Haegue Yang—Paper Control By Haegue Yang
eBook (PDF): $4.00
Download immediately.
This booklet was generated from an artist-in-residence project with Haegue Yang at the Walker Art Center. The residency began as a conversation on the nature of artist residencies between Yang and... More > then Walker curator Doryun Chong. It evolved into an experiment in which the artist aimed to “domesticize the institution” as an apprentice in the museum. An exploration of the sometimes antagonistic relationship between artists/artworks and institutions, Yang’s project mobilized the Walker to bring together a group of “expert” participants in a skill share and knowledge exchange revolving around the artist’s interests and themes in her work. It concluded with a series of public events centered on the late French writer Marguerite Duras and a theatrical workshop in which Yang staged a production of Duras’ novella "The Malady of Death." This booklet is designed to be nested within a gallery guide for the exhibition "Haegue Yang: Integrity of the Insider," previously on view at the Walker.< Less

Open Field: Conversations on the Commons By Sarah Schultz
Paperback: $16.00
Ships in 3-5 business days
George Bernard Shaw once wrote: “If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea... More > and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.” Open Field is the Walker Art Center’s three-year experiment in participation and public space. Taking place outdoors in the summer months, the project invited artists and visitors to imagine and inhabit the museum’s campus as a cultural commons—a shared space for idea exchange, creative gatherings, and unexpected interactions. The Walker’s backyard was home to numerous activities, from conversations to performances and temporary sculptures. This volume discusses Open Field’s genesis, exploring the meaning and impact of public practice for institutions.< Less
