Summer Show

We are pleased to announce the opening of “PARKETT – 25 Years”, the summer show of selected editions and volumes published since 1984 at Carolina Nitsch Project Room in Chelsea, New York.

The show includes new works by Maria Lassnig, Beatriz Milhazes, Josh Smith and Jean-Luc Mylayne, as well as rare editions by Ross Bleckner, Alighiero e Boetti, Louise Bourgeois, Andreas Gursky, Jenny Holzer, Martin Kippenberger, Paul McCarthy, Mario Merz, Jason Rhoades, and others.

Also on display are recent and out-of-print Parkett volumes from the past 25 years and artists’ documents illustrating the collaborations between Parkett and the artists.

The Whitechapel Art Gallery in London remarked: “Commissioned by Parkett, … the most important artists of our time have created works that represent the essence of their art or reveal an unexpected dimension … The works cover every possible medium including painting, page art projects, photographs, drawings, prints, sculptures, videos, DVDs and sound pieces.” Deborah Wye from the MoMA observed: “The collections of The Museum of Modern Art contain numerous examples of editions by the most significant artists of the modern period… The editions commissioned by Parkett carry on this rich tradition … “.

To date PARKETT has published 200 artists’ collaborations and editions with 85 volumes and 1400 texts, making it a large library and a small museum of contemporary art. The exhibition also features the new CD Rom with all PARKETT INSERTS. This CD presents for the first time a survey of the signature INSERTS made by artists for PARKETT.

A 25 Years retrospective of all works made by artists for PARKETT will be exhibited at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan, in September. A fully illustrated catalogue raisonné, “200 Art Works – 25 Years”, will be published on that occasion.

All in print PARKETT back issues are also featured at Chelsea’s new art bookstore ARTBOOK AT X along with related artists monographs. (Artbook at X, 548 West 22nd Street near 11th Avenue, New York City, www.artbook.com | www.x-initiative.org .

“PARKETT – 25 Years” is on display from June 25 – August 7, 2009 at Carolina Nitsch Project Room on 22nd Street in Chelsea, New York. For further information please contact info@carolinanitsch.com or call 212-645 2030.
