Swell, 10 Years Later
By Megan Wilson
Paperback, 53 pages, full color
In 1996, Meridian Gallery presented the exhibition Swell: new work by Amy Berk, Carolyn Castaño and Megan Wilson, a humorous and glamorously serious take on femininity, its illusions, and its power in the 1990’s. Over the past ten years these three artists have continued to be close friends and periodic collaborators. Each has expanded and developed her personal relationship with and aesthetic vocabulary of the femme and beyond. In Swell, 10 Years Later, Berk, Castaño, and Wilson present their current work, a reflection of their personal and artistic evolution throughout the last decade.
As the Butterfly Said to Chuang Tzu
By Michael Zheng
Paperback, 40 pages
This is the exhibition catalogue for the solo show of Michael Zheng of the same title at the Mission 17 gallery in San Francisco, 2006. The show set out to let viewers question the nature of perception in light of phenomenological, cultural and political conditioning. It deliberately blurs the boundary between the art object and its context, questioning where the frame stops and where the art starts. This catalogue includes an essay by Clark Buckner on art after Conceptualism, as well as the three reviews of this show in Sculpture Magazine, Artweek and the Shotgun Review by Terri Cohn, Colin Berry and Scott Oliver respectively.
