    Calder / Kelly

    $70.00

    Accompanying Lévy Gorvy’s exhibition Calder / Kelly, this catalogue reveals the artists’ friendship and shared pursuit of abstraction. A timeline authored by Veronica Roberts traces the history of their relationship with previously unpublished letters between the artists and members of their shared circle of friends. In addition, Calder biographer Jed Perl examines resonances between the artists in his essay “Apollonian Affinities,” and philosopher Robert Hopkins discusses the similarities and differences in their approaches to abstraction. Newly commissioned poetry by Dan Chiasson, Forrest Gander, and Simon Perchik beautifully responds to works in the exhibition.

  • Intimate Infinite
    Quick shop

    This fully-illustrated catalogue accompanies the first exhibition curated by Brett Gorvy for the gallery. Titled Intimate Infinite, the exhibition features nearly one hundred artworks by twenty-seven artists, including Hans Bellmer, Lee Bontecou, Bruce Conner, Joseph Cornell, Jean Dubuffet, Eva Hesse, Jasper Johns, Henri Michaux, Carol Rama, Robert Ryman, Yves Tanguy, Cy Twombly, and Hannah Wilke. Documenting masterpieces that are rarely on public display, the publication offers a unique perspective on viewership and collecting. In its pages, Gorvy explores the practice of looking and the ways in which we, as viewers, connect with the artistic imagination. An essay by Suzanne Hudson examines works by Johns, Ryman, and Twombly, while Sarah K. Rich considers the practice of using hallucinogens to break down boundaries within the self, as was done by such artists as Michaux and Conner. A new translation of an excerpt from Henri Michaux’s 1957 text Infinite Turbulence offers the reader a window into the mind of an artist on mescaline. Miranda Mellis’s work of short fiction “The Emissaries” conjures a dystopian narrative that beautifully responds to works by Bellmer, Conner, Dubuffet, and Rama, and Pablo Neruda’s poem Ode to Things accompanies reproductions of works by Cornell.

    Publisher: Lévy Gorvy
