L.A. ART BOOK FAIR

DoPe Press is extremely happy to see the return of the Printed Matter–LA Art Book Fair to the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA. We will be in section H07 on the main level.

Our newest publications—the journal PARIS LA 16: “The Fashion and Writing Issue” and the artist’s book …my life in the sunshine—Liz Craft 2006–2017—will be available, as well as our back catalogue and a selection of out-of-print titles.

For art and fashion lovers: In 2013 the artist Max Hooper Schneider created a silk scarf edition with P.P.M. Studio, Milan. We are offering the edition for purchase, as well as his last available original artwork from this series—dense, hand-drawn graphic lines recalling imaginative worlds and biologies—which will be part of a forthcoming book published by DoPe Press in September 2019.

In addition, we have invited some friends and family from Paris to share their publications and journals: Paraguay Press, MAY, and Profane.

THE MOTORMAN AT RICHARD TELLES FINE ART LOS ANGELES

“The Motorman” opened this past weekend at Richard Telles Fine Art in Los Angeles, and is on view until July 5th. The title of this group exhibition refers to David Ohle’s sci-fi novel The Motorman published in 1972. In the book, the main character inhabits “a world similar to our own, but with stark physical differences.” In the exhibition, familiar objects take on new and peculiar identities. Oscar Tuazon’s Leisure, for example, is a rocking chair assembled out of an oil drum and an office chair. It is both comical and disturbing. Mathieu Malouf’s photographs “stemming from a nascent film script about two males and their drunken, ill-fated departure from a gay bar” show familiar scenes gone awry – a car with skeleton passengers, a plate with a bloody heart. Alex Hubbard has constructed a functional bar inside of a shipping container. It is a bar big enough for only one person, who must play both bartender and drinker in front of a mirror. The exhibition also features Emily Sundblad’s drawings and a painting by Jon Pestoni.
