WRITING

Juliana Huxtable Mucus In My Pineal Gland co-published with Capricious

A collection of poetry from New York based writer and artist Juliana Huxtable.

Pierre Leguillon, Barbara Fédier Oracles Artists’ Calling Cards Co-published by HEAD – Genève (Geneva University of Art and Design) and Edition Patrick Frey, under the patronage of the Museum of Mistakes

This new book published by Edition Patrick Frey and the Museum of Mistakes reproduces 123 calling cards of artists (including Rodin, Albers, Dan Graham, Canova, Man Ray, Adrian Piper and many many more) from the 18th century to the present day. The facsimile cards are placed loose within the book. They are tucked alongside essays on the history of artistic calling cards and the social context in which they were produced, creating a kind of micro-history of art, all based around these tiny expressions of artistic identity.
