The beautiful exhibition catalog for MADE IN L.A. 2020: a version—available to order from the Hammer Store—includes a folio of collages by Hedi El Kholti bound into the book, as well as a conversation with El Kholti and Chris Kraus. The artist-designer-editor has also created two posters, available as exhibition takeaways at the HammerMuseum and the Huntington.
I never really had a plan, except to express myself as purely as possible… I still make work on my own body first, as I always have. I can only understand it from the inside. — Michael Clark
MICHAEL CLARK—COSMIC DANCER, recently at the Barbican, was the first comprehensive retrospective of the British dance artist. Interrupted by the pandemic shutdowns, the exhibition lives on in the catalog, edited by Florence Ostende.
Bringing together materials from his choreographic work and collaborations with artists—including Elizabeth Peyton, Silke Otto-Knapp, Sarah Lucas, Wolfgang Tillmans, LeighBowery, Peter Doig, Cerith Wyn Evans, and Duncan Campbell—the book is a beautiful complement to MICHAEL CLARK, a 2011 monograph edited by Suzanne Cotter and RobertViolette.
I like to work in a way that all the processes about the creation of the work are visible in the end when the work is done. I do not like works where you have to think, “How is this done?” Everything can be visible. — Monica Bonvicini*
Bonvicini gives a video tour of her traveling exhibition LOVER’S MATERIAL, through the beginning of May.
The touring exhibition PATI HILL—SOMETHING OTHER THAN EITHER is in its last weeks in Switzerland. The show is “the most comprehensive exhibition of the artist’s works to date—an artist who was equally an author, columnist, model, antiques dealer, and gallerist.”*
Hill’s oeuvre includes four novels, short stories, artist’s publications, a collection of instruction manuals, and the invention of a new Symbol Language (1977–1978), as well as thousands of photocopies from 1974 onwards.*
