Cahiers d’Art, known for its high quality art publications and as the publisher of the Zervos Picasso Catalogue in thirty-three volumes, announces the release of a new issue of their internationally celebrated art revue. This is the second issue to be published since the relaunch of Cahiers d’Art in 2012 and focuses predominately on Rosemarie Trockel, whose work, Clock Owner, 2013, also graces the cover of this edition. Concurrently, Cahiers d’Art is pleased to present a special exhibition of Trockel’s work at their gallery spaces in Paris, on view from March 28 -May 17, 2014 at 14-15 rue du dragon in Saint-Germain-des-Près.
The exhibition will feature fifteen mixed media works, including the artist’s latest works made from stretched black yarn. In these black monochrome works, the yarn material is placed like a stroke of the brush on the canvas. Trockel stands apart among contemporary artists working today through her deep engagement with materials and her unique use of these materials in unconventional ways. In other examples of work in this exhibition, the artist combines ceramic-like materials, such as Acrystal with Plexiglass, together with pieces of crystal. Trockel’s combination of materials as disparate as casts of meat, digital prints and crystal dislodge the materials from their usual meanings. The exhibition also features a series of prints and collages by the artist, which reinforce an important theme of threads and lines and continue to reference different fragments of the human body. Works from the same series have been exhibited at Sprüth Magers London and Gladstone Gallery New York.
In addition to a feature on Trockel, the publication also includes the work of Peter Fischli and David Weiss, Le Corbusier, Inge Mahn, Absalon, and Riccardo Paratore. In the tradition of outstanding contributors to Cahiers d’Art, this second issue of the newly published art journal includes articles and interviews by world-renowned writers, curators and art historians including Hans Ulrich Obrist, Brigid Doherty, Joan Simon, Jean-Louis Cohen, Michel Houellebecq, and poems by Rolf Dieter Brinkmann.
Standard Editions of the Cahiers d’Art revue are available in English and French. A limited signed and numbered edition of 75 copies in French and 75 copies in English will also be available with a special vinyl print bound within each copy. The limited edition of Issue No. 1 – 2 , 2013 of the Cahiers d’Art revue comes in a plexiglass box created by the artist. The limited edition will be available at the Cahiers d’Art Gallery at 14 rue du Dragon in Paris and through the company website at www.editionscahiersdart.com.
The standard edition of the revue is available at numerous locations worldwide, including: Sotheby’s, Gagosian Gallery, Walther Koenig, Fondation Beyeler, 192 Books, Ursus Books, Hennessey + Ingalls, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and directly through the Cahiers d’Art website.
Cahiers d’Art is a legendary publishing house, gallery, and magazine founded in 1926 by Christian Zervos in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Cahiers d’Art editions are among the most remarkable publications of the 20th century, and are sought after by art collectors and book collectors worldwide. By 1960, Zervos had published 97 issues of the Cahiers d’Art magazine and more than 50 books, including monographs on El Greco, Matisse, Man Ray, and African and Mesopotamian Art, as well as collections of poems by Paul Éluard and André Breton. The most famous Cahiers d’Art publication to date is the Zervos Picasso Catalogue, which includes over 16,000 paintings and drawings by the artist, which has been republished in English translation and is also distributed by Sotheby’s. Swedish collector Staffan Ahrenberg acquired Cahiers d’Art in 2011, and is Cahiers d’Art’s Publisher.
