Barbara Kruger
This is the most comprehensive publication ever produced on the work of American artist Barbara Kruger. Kruger, one of the most influential artists of the last three decades, uses pictures and words through a wide variety of media and sites to raise issues of power, sexuality, and representation. Her works include photographic prints on paper and vinyl, etched metal plates, sculpture, video, installations, billboards, posters, magazine and book covers, T-shirts, shopping bags, postcards, and newspaper op-ed pieces. This book serves as the catalog for the first major one-person exhibition of Kruger's work to be mounted in the United States. The book, designed by Lorraine Wild in collaboration with the artist, contains texts by Rosalyn Deutsche, Katherine Dieckmann, Ann Goldstein, Steven Heller, Gary Indiana, Carol Squiers, and Lynne Tillman on subjects associated with Kruger's work, including photography, graphic design, public space, power, and representation, as well as an extensive exhibition history, bibliography, and checklist of the exhibition. The cover features a new piece by Kruger, entitled Thinking of You,created especially for the catalog. The exhibition was organized by Ann Goldstein, curator at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Copublished with The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.

A Forest of Signs

A Forest of Signs
A Forest of Signs documents a major exhibition of critical art in the last decade, one that marks a change in the art world, perhaps even in the broader culture. The thread of representation ties together the work of the 30 artists included in the book, encompassing such issues as allegory, appropriation, and commodification, the role of the artist, and the functions of authorship and originality in vesting meaning in art. Much of the work is provocative, challenging the way we look at art, the way we talk about it, where we see it, and how we buy it. The development of these issues and their role in shifting the focus of much recent art from insistence on the art as object, to a host of representations is addressed in four essays and a section of "artists' pages." In the first essay, exhibition co-organizer Ann Goldstein discusses the individual artists and points to key issues and methods in their art. The artists themselves are represented by a 60 page portfolio of their works. Designed by the artists, these pages include personal statements, the remarks of others, works made specifically for the book and works using the tools of mechanical reproduction. In the three essays that follow, Anne Rorimer, former Curator of 20th Century Painting and Sculpture at the Art Institute of Chicago, traces the roots of recent American art to the development of international conceptualism in the 1960s and early 1970s; Mary Jane Jacob, exhibition co-organizer and MOCA Chief Curator, places the artists within the current trends of European as well as American art; and editor and critic Howard Singerman examines the relationship of recent art to its circle of critics and to the emergence of critical theory. Copublished with the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.

Christopher Wool
Published on the occasion of the first survey of Wool's work at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art from July to October 1998, this book features all of this artist's work to date. Drawn from sources in everyday or vernacular culture, Wool's imagery has ranged from the rolled "wallpaper" images of flowers, vines, or dots, to using rubber-stamps, stencils, or silkscreens. Working with language as image since the late 1980s, Wool has restructured words ("prankster", "adversary", "comedian", "paranoic", "riot", "fool") or common phrases ("cats in the bag", "the show is over", "run dog run") into all-over compositions of stencilled block letters that traverse or grid the picture plane while maintaining the integritiy of their meaning. Recently, Wool has turned from the techniques of image construction to exploring methods of image destruction in the silkscreened, overpainted, and spraypainted works of the mid-1990s.

Jennifer Bornstein
The copperplate etchings that fill this small monograph by the Los Angeles based artist Jennifer Bornstein read deceptively simply--they echo sketches on looseleaf. "Marvin with His Skateboard" shows its title subject, defiant, in a "Smiths" T-shirt with its lettering crossed out and "Ramones" written in. Other young models do homework, play guitar, and model even wittier T-shirts. But it's not as direct as all that: A few pages on, the slackers are interleaved with "Margaret Mead in Authentic Samoan Dress," and then later "Buster Keaton on Crutches." Bornstein was born in Seattle, Washington, in 1970. She has had recent solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Blum & Poe, Santa Monica; and Leo Koenig, Inc., New York.

The Days of Abandonment
Rarely have the foundations upon which our ideas of motherhood and womanhood rest been so candidly questioned. This compelling novel tells the story of one woman's headlong descent into what she calls an absence of sense after being abandoned by her husband. Olga's days of abandonment become a desperate, dangerous freefall into the darkest places of the soul as she roams the empty streets of a city that she has never learned to love. When she finds herself trapped inside the four walls of her apartment in the middle of a summer heat wave, Olga is forced to confront her ghosts, the potential loss of her own identity, and the possibility that life may never return to normal again.
