Newsweek calls him? exhilarating and deeply engaging. Time Out New York calls him? smart, provocative, and a great writer. Critic Peter Schjeldahl, meanwhile, simply calls him? My hero. There?s no one in the art world quite like Dave Hickey?and a new book of his writing is an event.25 Women will not disappoint. The book collects Hickey?s best and most important writing about female artists from the past twenty years. But this is far more than a compilation: Hickey has revised each essay, bringing them up to date and drawing out common themes. Written in Hickey?s trademark style?accessible, witty, and powerfully illuminating?25 Women analyzes the work of Joan Mitchell, Bridget Riley, Fiona Rae, Lynda Benglis, Karen Carson, and many others. Hickey discusses their workas work, bringing politics and gender into the discussion only where it seems warranted by the art itself. The resulting book is not only a deep engagement with some of the most influential and innovative contemporary artists, but also a reflection on the life and role of the critic: the decisions, judgments, politics, and ethics that critics negotiate throughout their careers in the art world. Always engaging, often controversial, and never dull, Dave Hickey is a writer who gets people excited?and talking?about art.25 Women will thrill his many fans, and make him plenty of new ones.

Art Chantry Speaks


Art Chantry Speaks


$23.86


There used to be a time when designers were trained in the history of composition. Now you just buy a fuckin’ piece of software and now you’ve become a designer.”Art Chantry. Is he a Luddite?” asks a Rhode Island School of Design poster promoting a Chantry lecture. “Or is he a graphic design hero?”For decades this avatar of low-tech design has fought against the cheap and easy use of digital software. Chantry’s homage to expired technology, and his inspired use of Xerox machines and X-Acto blade cuts of printed material, created a much-copied style during the grunge period and beyond. Chantry’s designs were published in Some People Can’t Surf: The Graphic Design of Art Chantry (Chronicle Books), exhibited at the Seattle Art Museum, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian, and the Louvre. More recently, Chantry has drawn upon his extraordinary collection of twentieth-century graphic art to create compelling histories of the forgotten and unknown on essays he has posted on his Facebook page. These essays might lionize the unrecognized illustrators of screws, wrenches, and pipes in equipment catalogs. Other posts might reveal how some famous artists were improperly recognized. Art Chantry Speaks is the kind of opinionated art history you’ve always wanted to read but were never assigned.

Behind the iconic jazz orchestras, vocalists, and stage productions of the Swing Era lay the talents of popular music? s unsung heroes: the arrangers. John Wriggle takes you behind the scenes of New York City’s vibrant entertainment industry of the 1930s and 1940s to uncover the lives and work of jazz arrangers, both black and white, who left an indelible mark on American music and culture. Blue Rhythm Fantasy traces the extraordinary career of arranger Chappie Willet-a collaborator of Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, Gene Krupa, and many others-to revisit legendary Swing Era venues and performers from Harlem to Times Square. Wriggle’s insightful music analyses of big band arranging techniques explore representations of cultural modernism, discourses on art and commercialism, conceptions of race and cultural identity, music industry marketing strategies, and stage entertainment variety genres. Drawing on archives, obscure recordings, untapped sources in the African American press, and interviews with participants, Blue Rhythm Fantasy is a long-overdue study of the arranger during this dynamic era of American music history.
