  • The Chuck Close catalogue raisonné is the definitive list of paintings by Chuck Close, and is updated regularly to include his most recent works. Monumental in scale and exhaustive in detail, the catalogue is the most comprehensive and interactive publication about the artist to date. It documents the artist’s process, biography, and the myriad approaches he has innovated in rendering the human face. Forthcoming volumes will supplement the existing catalogue with complete records of the artist’s drawings and photo maquettes, plus a career-spanning selection of prints.

    Each artwork record includes complete provenance, exhibition, and literature histories, excerpts from relevant published texts, and numerous illustrations including progress and exhibition photographs. Close’s only film, the 1970 Slow Pan for Bob, can be viewed in its entirety. The catalogue includes nearly 1,200 images, more than 100 quotations from the artist, and extensive exhibition and literature histories documenting some 1,200 solo and group shows and 2,500 publications. The growing multimedia archive includes 70 video and audio files to date. Editor Carina Evangelista has enriched the catalogue with original scholarship, including three essays, one of which describes the artist’s landmark 1969 lawsuit, which contributed to freedom of expression through the visual arts.

    Jim Dine: Sculpture is the definitive publication of three-dimensional works created by the artist between 1983 and the present, the period during which he has worked extensively with Walla Walla Foundry in Washington. The catalogue raisonné details the artist’s entire output of freestanding sculpture from these years—more than 300 original works. It also lists comprehensive information for individual casts within editions, of which there are approximately 900 in total.

    Organized by chronological and thematic sections including Dine’s signature motifs like hearts, Venuses, and Pinocchios, the catalogue raisonné explores the artist’s three-dimensional work more thoroughly than any other publication to date. The publication details more than 260 solo exhibitions and 600 bibliographic entries and includes more than 1,000 images, notably allowing readers to click through photography to see sculptures in the round.

    In a series of conversations with Editor Sara K. Davidson in spring 2013, Jim Dine spoke at length about his body of work. Artifex Press produced 33 original videos from this dialogue, which are accessible exclusively in this catalogue raisonné.

    The Tim Hawkinson catalogue raisonné contains detailed records for all of the artist’s works from 1986 to the present, with select meaningful student works dating back as far as 1979, encompassing his entire boundary-breaking career thus far. Thousands of color images illustrate Hawkinson’s more than 530 artworks to date, and his written descriptions augment the reader’s understanding of key artworks. The catalogue is organized into chapters that highlight the artist’s unusual use of everyday materials, which range from latex to eggshell to found art objects that he transforms into creations of his own.

    The catalogue contains more than 100 whimsical self-portraits and 31 clocks made from milk cartons, toothpaste tubes, and other commonplace objects. Photography of individual artworks is supplemented with installation views, in-progress images, audio files, and videos showing kinetic works in motion. Comprehensive exhibition and literature histories document 150 solo and group exhibitions and 300 bibliographic entries. A living catalogue raisonné, the publication is updated as Hawkinson completes new works, and research is ongoing on projects such as his commission for the Transbay Transit Center in San Francisco, which is slated to open in late 2017. This catalogue raisonné is the most up-to-date resource on the artist’s career.

    Loris Gréaud: The Unplayed Notes Museum is the first-ever digital exhibition catalogue produced by Artifex Press, created for the exhibition of the same title at the Dallas Contemporary in Texas from January 18 to March 21, 2015. The catalogue includes extensively detailed exhibition plans with 3D renderings, models, and gallery plans, created prior to the opening of the show, plus installation photography of the site-specific works in the Dallas Contemporary galleries. The catalogue includes a narrative exhibition story written by the artist and videos to enhance the catalogue experience of Gréaud’s uniquely immersive vision.

    This publication was produced in preparation for the forthcoming release of the complete catalogue raisonné of Loris Gréaud’s entire body of work.
