Curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, 'Do It' began in Paris in 1993 as a conversation between the artists Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier and Obrist himself, who was experimenting with how exhibition formats could be rendered more flexible and open-ended. The discussion led to the question of whether a show could take "scores" or written instructions by artists as a point of departure, which could be interpreted anew each time they were enacted. To test the idea, Obrist invited 13 artists to send instructions, which were then translated into nine different languages and circulated internationally as a book. Within two years, 'Do It' exhibitions were being created all over the world by realizing the artists' instructions. With every version of the exhibition new instructions were added, so that today more than 300 artists have contributed to the project.

This publication accompanies the first survey of drawings by Los Angeles artist Ken Price (1935-2013), best known for his abstract, brightly colored ceramic sculptures. Price's work was only widely exhibited later in his life, but scholars have long admired his highly original forms. As early as 1966, Lucy Lippard commented: "No one else on the East or West Coast is working like Kenneth Price." Like his better-known sculptures, these drawings feature an idiosyncratic array of amorphous shapes. The book includes an in-depth 44-page illustrated essay by exhibition curator Douglas Dreishpoon, a 20-page section detailing a rarely seen large-scale scroll drawing from 1962, and color plates of all of the nearly 70 works in the exhibition, tracking the evolution of Price's drawings over 48 years and demonstrating a wide range of characters and techniques. -- Provided by publisher.

"Draw It with Your Eyes Closed: the Art of the Art Assignment, is a unique and wide-ranging anthology featuring essays, drawings, and assignments from over 100 contributors including: John Baldessari, William Pope. L, Mira Schor, Rochelle Feinstein, Bob Nickas, Chris Kraus, Liam Gillick, Amy Sillman, James Benning, and Michelle Grabner. Practical and quixotic in equal parts, the art assignment can resemble a riddle as much as a recipe, and often sounds more like a haiku, or even a joke, than a clear directive. From introductory exercises in perspective drawing to graduate-level experiments in societal transformation, the assignment coalesces ideas about what art is, how it should be taught, and what larger purpose it might, or might not, serve. The book is a written record of an evolving oral tradition. Bringing together hundreds of assignments, anti-assignments, and artworks from both teachers and students from a broad range of institutions, Draw It with Your Eyes Closed serves as an archive and an instigation, a teaching tool and a question mark, a critique and a tribute."--Amazon.

An increased public and academic interest in drawing and sketching, both traditional and digital, has allowed drawing research to emerge recently as a discipline in its own right. In light of this development, "Writing on Drawing" presents a collection of essays by leading artists and drawing researchers that reveal a provocative agenda for the field, analyzing the latest work on creativity, education, and thinking from a variety of perspectives. "Writing on Drawing" offers consolidation, discussion, guidance and an agenda to a fragmented community in the form of essays by international drawing makers and drawing researchers. Discussion extends to creativity, education and thinking, all with multi-disciplinary viewpoints. An essential resource for artists, scientists, designers, and engineers, this volume offers consolidation, discussion, and guidance for a previously fragmented discipline.Drawing research is emerging as a discipline in its own right. Very few resources exist to support the international community which consists of artists, scientists, designers, engineers - both within academia and in practice. It includes essays by leading drawing makers and drawing researchers with international reputations. Steve Garner is Director of the international Drawing Research Network. This currently has 300 members internationally and a well visited web site.

Emma Dexter's introductory text offers a critical account of the recent evolution and role of drawing in the art world, and introduces some of the trends, methods and artists included in the book. In the following and largest section of the book (over 300 pages and approximately 500 illustrations), the 100 or more artists are presented in an A to Z order. Some artists are presented on 2 pages, some on 4 pages. About 5 selections of work are reproduced for each artist, along a text written by an author who is a specialist on the artist's work. The 500-word texts are brief surveys of the artist's career to date, and aim at introducing the methods and subject matter at issue in their recent works. A selected list of exhibitions and bibliography also complements the reproductions and text on each artist.

This is an exploration of the history, meaning, and art of comics and cartooning. Using comics to examine the medium itself, the author takes the form of a cartoon character and explains the structure, meaning, and appeal of comics, and provides a running analysis of comics as art, literature, and communication. He reaches back to pre-Columbus picture manuscripts and Egyptian monuments to trace the history of the comics and examines their place in today's pop culture.

"Seeing comes before words. The child looks and recognizes before it can speak.""But there is also another sense in which seeing comes before words. It is seeing which establishes our place in the surrounding world; we explain that world with words, but word can never undo the fact that we are surrounded by it. The relation between what we see and what we know is never settled."John Berger's "Ways of Seeing" is one of the most stimulating and the most influential books on art in any language. First published in 1972, it was based on the BBC television series about which the "London Sunday Times" critic commented: "This is an eye-opener in more ways than one: by concentrating on how we look at paintings ...he will almost certainly change the way you look at pictures." By now he has.
