The catalogue includes a newly commissioned work by contemporary poet Mei-mei Berssenbrugge titled "Star Being." The book also features rare archival material; artists’ biographies; and a comprehensive chronology linking developments in the art world with the larger social and political events of the decade, including the Civil Rights Movement, Feminist Movement, Vietnam War, and widespread student protests.

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.
