Allan Kaprow “Posters”

January 5, 2015

Christophe Daviet-Thery has the pleasure to present his following edition

Allan Kaprow. Posters, 2014

27,7 x 43 cm – 91 pages – sofcover

Text by Steve Roden & Oscar Tuazon

Price: 36 euros

Allan Kaprow (1927–2006) is considered to be the founding father of the Happening, of Environments and Activities: terms that he continued to redefine throughout his career.

With a wide selection of images, this publication, designed by Coline Sunier and Charles Mazé, documents Kaprow’s posters, a lesser-known side of his work, produced between 1953 for his first show at the Hansa Gallery, New York and 1996 at Kunsthalle Palazzo, Liestal.

Most of these posters were designed by Allan Kaprow and are characterized by their aesthetic quality, the earliest ones in particular a combination of hand-lettered text and drawings and the later ones of photographs and typographic text in a minimalist style.

More than merely advertising Happenings or Activities, these posters act as scores/tools for the participants to the Happenings and as everyday objects that blur the boundaries between art and life.

Allan Kaprow (1927–2006) was an American artist who is perhaps best known for his work 18 Happenings in 6 Parts that took place at the Reuben Gallery in New York in 1959. In 1958 he wrote an essay, “The Legacy of Jackson Pollock,” that became an essential text for understanding the development of his work and indeed the entire Sixties performance art scene: “Pollock, as I see him, left us at the point where we must become preoccupied with and even dazzled by the space and objects of our everyday life, either our bodies, clothes, rooms, or, if need be, the vastness of Forty-second Street. Not satisfied with the suggestion through paint of our other senses, we shall utilize the specific substances of sight, sound, movements, people, odors, touch.”

ART-O-RAMA 2014

Nathalie Daviet-Thery Editions has the pleasure to inform you that she will be participating in the The ART-O-RAMA
to be held August 29-31, 2014 at Marseille.

Art-O-Rama_2014

Nathalie Daviet-Thery invites the artists Claire Morel and Yann Sérandour to re-appropriate, each in their own way, the Art & Project Bulletin number 72 realized in 1973 by Lawrence Weiner, following up the Four proposal for changing Bulletin 72 by Michael Riedel. For Claire Morel, it is all about reducing the bulletin inked surface, according to her own modus operandi. Yann Sérandour will on the other hand react to a “stained” version of the bulletin.

Essays: ” Do Androids dream about Kindles” by Vincent Pecoil, “American/English” by Yann Sérandour

Bibliographical notes: Francine Delaigle

Design: Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié

This book is not a catalogue raisonné, it instead takes a look at the library of an amateur, an excuse to apprehend this aspect of Richard Prince’s work which encompasses books and the question of the collection and its incompleteness, revealed here by the ” ghost” of the missing books.

Richard Prince is an avid collector of books, an obsessive one. This fervor is visible in The Good Life of American/ English, where he photographs covers of books from his collection, reducing the book to an image, a simple surface.

1 volume – 208 pages- illust in colour -16 x 11,5 cm

Edition of 1000 copies.

Price: 25 euros

ART-O-RAMA, MARSEILLE 2014

ART-O-RAMA, MARSEILLE

International Fair of Contemporart Art – August 29-31, 2014

Art-O-Rama_2014

August 29
Professionnal preview (by invitation only)
3-8pm

August 30-31
Open to all public
Exhibition untill September 14, 201

This summer, Nathalie Daviet-Thery will take part in ART-O-RAMA Marseille contemporary art fair, which will be held on August 29, 30 and 31, 2014.

Together, Nathalie Daviet-Thery and Michèle Didier present a shared curatorial project for this edition of Art-O-Rama 2014. Conceptual art is the common thread running through the works selected by both publishers.

mfc-michèle didier presents SOMETHING IN A BOX by Robert Barry, replaying on its own scale — 10,2 x 15,2 cm — the measurements of the cards — here 62 — that were distributed about forty years ago. This new production actualizes the artist’s work Index Cards, initially created in 1971. A box made of walnut wood gathers here 62 index cards, each one proposing a different statement by Robert Barry. Art lovers, an unbound book by the same artist, contains 31 portraits of famous «Art Lovers» who were photographed by Robert Barry. They are hidden behind a black surface where only the perforation of a word reveals a few clues on the identity of the people behind it. The reader has thus no choice but to reconstruct their faces, to imagine new identities and to replace the «Art Lovers» selected by the artist.

Nathalie Daviet-Thery invites the artists Claire Morel and Yann Sérandour to re-appropriate, each in their own way, the Art & Project Bulletin number 72 realized in 1973 by Lawrence Weiner, following up the Four proposals for changing Bulletin 72 by Michael Riedel. For Claire Morel, it is all about reducing the bulletin’s inked surface, according to her own modus operandi. Yann Sérandour will on the other hand react to a «stained» version of the bulletin.web_4372
