  • La monographie rétrospective de John Armleder.
    Publiée à l'occasion de deux grandes expositions organisées en Italie, au Madre Museum de Naples et au Museion Bolzano, cette publication offre une rétrospective de l'oeuvre multiple de l'artiste suisse John M Armleder. En documentant largement les deux expositions - la rétrospective de Naples et les installations et environnements totaux mis en avant à Bolzano - l'ouvrage plonge le lecteur dans l'univers d'Armleder grâce au design graphique innovant de Gavillet & Cie.
    Un long entretien avec l'artiste par Andrea Viliani, directeur du Madre et Letizia Ragaglia, commissaire de l'exposition au Museion, un essai sur la peinture d'Armleder par Heidi Zuckerman, commissaire et ancienne directrice de l'Aspen Art Museum, ainsi qu'une bio-bibliographie complète par Chiara Costa, critique d'art et historienne, complètent la publication pour offrir une synthèse unique de la pratique d'Armleder - une pratique qui s'est développée sous l'égide de la liberté et de l'ouverture. Comme l'affirme Zuckerman dans son essai, soulignant le modèle qu'Armleder a été pour des générations de jeunes artistes contemporains : « À une époque où la tentative de catégorisation comme moyen de comprendre et de se situer est répandue à la fois dans la vie et dans l'art, John M Armleder reste connu pour n'avoir aucune restriction ou méthode de travail fixe ».

  • Restless Empathy examines the complex process of projecting into the interior world of another-whether artist, viewer or object-and seeking to make a connection. For the exhibition, the Aspen Art Museum has invited eight artists-Allora & Calzadilla, Pawel Althamer, Marc Bijl, Lara Favaretto, Geof Oppenheimer, Lars Ramberg, Frances Stark and Mark Wallinger-to propose projects sited throughout the museum and town of Aspen. While diverse in practice, these artists create and explore empathy in unexpected ways. With recent works grouped under Relational Aesthetics, the viewer becomes instrumentalized within the work itself. Rather than use people as a medium, however, the artists in Restless Empathy make generous gestures toward the public, marked by a deep sincerity and moments of intimate surprise. Subverting expectations of permanence and monumentality in art that addresses the public, Restless Empathy broadly explores relationships between aesthetics, space, locality and modes of address.

  • Glasgow-based artist Phil Collins' film Soy Mi Madre examines the immigrant populations of Colorado's Roaring Fork Valley, a sizable percentage of which hail from northwestern Mexico. The region relies heavily on service and maintenance work provided largely through this population, who often commute to work in Aspen. Loosely inspired by Jean Genet's The Maids--a seminal example of Theatre of the Absurd that renders surreal the intricate power dynamics that exist between people of divergent socioeconomic groups and exploits the volatility of social identity--Soy Mi Madre portrays the social realities of this region through the melodramatic lens of the telenovela. Reproduced in this volume through a generous selection of stills, the film uses popular Mexican television actors and crew, including Patricia Reyes Spindola, Zaide Silvia Guitérrez, Veronica Langer and Salvador Parra, as well as members of the transsexual prostitute community of Mexico City.
