JUNE/JULY

2 X RAY JOHNSON

Not Nothing: Selected Writings by Ray Johnson, 1954-1994

Edited by Elizabeth Zuba and with an essay by Kevin Killian

This lovingly curated collection of more than 200 mostly previously unpublished writings opens a new view into the whirling flux of Johnson’s art, highlighting his keen sense of play and of the shifting nature of meaning.

 

The Paper Snake by Ray Johnson

A reprint of the seminal 1965 artist’s book, originally published by Dick Higgins and Something Else Press

Long out of print (and coveted by Ray Johnson fans), The Paper Snake is a vertiginous, mind-bending artist’s book and essential work in Johnson’s oeuvre.

 

SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER

ROBERT SEYDEL

A Picture Is Always a Book: Further Writings from Book of Ruth

Edited by Lisa Pearson, to accompany an exhibition of Seydel’s Ruth works at the Neilson Library, Smith College

These “journal pages”—typed on paper purloined from old photo albums and drawn on with colored pencils, oil pens, white-out, and ink stamps—narrate the inner life of Seydel’s alter ego Ruth Greisman for whom the distance between ecstasy and melancholy is “infra-thin.”

 

ROBERT SEYDEL

Songs of S. (and “Maybe S.”)

Co-published with Ugly Duckling Presse, edited by Peter Gizzi, Richard Kraft and Matvei Yankelevich

In the voice of S., another of his personae, Seydel wrote a beautiful and mesmerizing cycle of poems, which is accompanied by a four-color booklet that reveals the creation and revision of S. in Seydel’s drawings and notebooks.

 

NOVEMBER

DOROTHY IANNONE

You Who Read Me With Passion Now Must Forever Be My Friends

Edited by Lisa Pearson with an essay by Trinie Dalton

This large compendium of exuberantly sexual and transgressive image+text works (drawings, paintings, artist’s books, and writings) traces Iannone’s decades-long pursuit of “ecstatic unity”—from the carnal to the spiritual.

 

AND COMING IN 2015!

RICHARD KRAFT

Here Comes Kitty: A Comic Opera

With interpolations by Danielle Dutton

In this wildly graphic and irreverent collage narrative, Kraft reassembles a pre-perestroika era comic about a Polish spy infiltrating the Nazis, orchestrating  joyous cacophony and revelatory nonsense.
