Parkett, No. 83

Overview

In this issue of Parkett, Richard Flood writes, Christopher Wool hasn't left much of the American angst and anger out of his art. The terse staccato of his language--rushing between noir wise guys, Burma Shave teasers, Punk rants, Lenny Bruce riffs and Zen smack downs--is a mad imploded sampler of rage, denial and brutal pragmatism."

Overview

In this issue of Parkett, Richard Flood writes, Christopher Wool hasn't left much of the American angst and anger out of his art. The terse staccato of his language--rushing between noir wise guys, Burma Shave teasers, Punk rants, Lenny Bruce riffs and Zen smack downs--is a mad imploded sampler of rage, denial and brutal pragmatism." Scott Rothkopf takes on Wade Guyton's latest inkjet paintings in bull's-eye prose. And writing on Robert Frank, Eileen Myles claims: "Pull My Daisy refers to a g-string being dropped away, but the emotional underpinnings of this film make it more like a red flag being waved at a bull." Also, Paul Chan on Paul Sharits, Max Wechsler on Felix Vallotton, Thomas Eaton on Kenneth Anger, Burkhard Meltzer on Susan Philipsz and Victor Tupitsyn. Insert by Kerstin Bratsch, spine by Paulina Olowska."

Meet the Author

Robert Frank was born in Zurich in 1924 to parents of Jewish descent. He immigrated to the United States two years after World War II ended, and since then he has produced work that changed the history of art and photography. Groundbreaking projects include The Americans, Lines of My Hand, Black White and Things, Pull My Daisy and Cocksucker Blues. Frank was the subject of a major retrospective organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, in 1994. He was the recipient of the Hasselblad Award in 1996. A major exhibition organized by The National Gallery of Art, Looking In: Robert Frank's "The Americans," will tour nationally in 2009, with stops in Washington, San Francisco and New York.

Christopher Wool was born and brought up in Chicago. In the early 1970s he moved to New York, where he studied painting intermittently and worked as an assistant to the artist Joel Shapiro. His first show was at the Cable Gallery, New York, in 1984. Since then he has exhibited internationally, including the 1989 Whitney Biennial, Documenta9, Birth of the Cool, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, Kunsthalle Basel and the Secession Gallery in Vienna.
