Cut, Copy, and Print: Magalie Guérin on Replicating Her Own Paintings

by Bradley Rubenstein
I first met Magalie Guérin in the early 2000s in Greenpoint, Brooklyn—long before Greenpoint was made famous by the TV show . She ran a small gallery called GV/AS, and curated shows that fused serious painting with something personal and quirky (Rodney Dickson's exhibition of paintings of Tanya Roberts still stands out as one of his most interesting exhibitions). One could always find Magalie sitting the gallery and working on drawings—in retrospect, combining elements of art making,... [more]

The Social Life of the Book: castillo/corrales Bring Their Unique Take on Publishing to Frieze Projects

by Josie Thaddeus-Johns
Reading can be a very private pursuit. It requires solitary attention, time, focus: all the things you often don’t find in abundance at an art fair. As part of 2015’s Frieze Projects commissions, alongside works from Thea Djordjadze and Rachel Rose, castillo/corrales are bringing their DIY publishing spirit to a broader context, with newly commissioned texts and furniture for the booth, presented with a vinyl floor recreation of the typical Parisian social hangout: a passageway cafe. With an... [more]

Bibliophilia in Technophobia, Pt. II: The Return of the Zine

by Mara Goldwyn
Some years back an acquaintance who I guess is about eight years younger than I am (I’m thirty-seven now, so at the time I was probably thirty-two and she twenty-four), sent out an email telling people about her “zine.” In the text, she said something like, “don’t know what a zine is?” and then included a link to a Wikipedia article … on zines.[i] I smiled a bit haughtily; this somehow brought me back to my teens and early twenties, when I never quite fully understood why my mother was so...

Bibliophilia in Technophobia: A Dream Come True

by Mara Goldwyn
–Walter Benjamin, “Unpacking my Library” Every artist should have a cheap line. It keeps art ordinary. –John Baldessari   Let me tell you about a dream I had. It was a working-through, partially, of an 80’s era Twilight Zone I probably saw for the first time late at night on a television where there were still two knobs for UHF and VHF, re-ran on YouTube this past year. In the episode, words began to lose their meaning. The word “lunch,” for example, became “dinosaur,” and by the end of the... [more]

Why Publishing an Art Book May Do Nothing For Your Career

by Daniel Rolnik
The last time I got lunch with my friend, he was in the midst of sending applications to McDonalds. Ironically, he was the last person I ever expected this from. The friend I was eating lunch with is one of the most published artists I’ve ever met, with over ten book covers and at least three big solo releases of his own. But what has all that done for him? I mean, right now he’s telling me how it’s literally impossible to feed his family and he’s so desperate for money that in a few minutes... [more]
