New York City, 1975
André Cadere
Published by Triangle Books, Brussels, 2023, 40 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 20 × 20 cm, English / French
Price: €25 (Temporarily out of stock)

This book brings together a series of 30 photographs by André Cadere (Warsaw, 1934–Paris, 1978). The photographs, which have never before been published in their entirety, capture the artist’s wanderings through New York City during his first trip in November, 1975. He took with him several round bars of wood, including one of his size, which appears in all the photographs. These images imply the idea of walking and displacement that is always associated with Cadere, who is often considered as a sort of itinerant artist or a parasitic figure who inserted himself into places to which he had not been invited. They also capture the very spirit of New York, a city that is always changing, but that nevertheless always manages to retain its uniqueness.

Lynda Morris / Dear Lynda…
Published by White Columns, New York, 2012, 100 pages (cb/w ill.), 21 × 29.7 cm, English
Price: €18

Produced on the occasion of the exhibition Lynda Morris / Dear Lynda… at White Columns, New York and Chelsea Space, London, 2012.

An exhibition that considers the ongoing practice of the British curator and writer Lynda Morris. As with the term ‘artist’s artist’ there should perhaps be an additional category of ‘artist’s curators’ for which Morris would be an exemplary figure. Having worked for most of her career in regional British cities (inc. Nottingham and Norwich), Morris’ ongoing advocacy for the social realities and political necessity of art is evident in her most recent major project “Picasso: Peace and Freedom” an exhibition and accompanying book that she organized for Tate Liverpool, England, a project that considered the legacy of Picasso’s involvement in and support of the Peace movement.

Including the work of Art & Language, Gilbert & George, Andre Cadere, John Baldessari, David Lamelas (whose early works Morris appeared in), Richard Hamilton, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Marcel Broodthaers, Gustav Metzger, Stephen McKenna, Nigel Henderson, John Wonnacott, Jeremy Deller, Lucy McKenzie, Marc Camille Chaimowicz, John Stezaker, and more—White Columns press release

Documenting Cadere, 1972–1978
Lynda Morris
Published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln, 2013, 172 pages (b/w ill.), 21 × 29.7 cm, English
Price: €34

Documenting Cadere, 1972–1978 is curated by Lynda Morris and draws on her personal archive and the archives of the Herbert Collection, Ghent, Massimo Minini, Brescia and Barry Barker, London.

André Cadere belonged to a generation of European artists who contested the art object and institutional framework of the art world in which they operated. Best known for carrying his Barres de Bois Rond—Round Bars of Wood—wherever he went. His appearances at the most important private views of contemporary art across Europe became legendary. With his round bar of wood in hand he would intervene in a provocative way on other artists’ exhibitions in galleries and museums.

The publication contains new translations of lectures given by Cadere; an interview with the artist conducted by Morris in 1976; plus new essays by Morris, and two other figures who worked closely with Cadere, British curator Barry Barker and Italian gallerist Massimo Minini. You can see Lynda Morris talking about Cadere here.
