Here's Charley...

Charley 01 is now available in specialty art and photography bookstores around the world.

Charley 01 is now available in specialty art and photography bookstores around the world. Due to high demand, the first print run of Charley 01 sold out in a few months. Here comes the re-print, as rough as ever.

Charley is a machine for redistribution, a mechanism for spreading and exploiting information, rumors, and communication. Like most information, it is partial, unstable, and untrustworthy. There are no hierarchies and no favorites in Charley. Charley is a pre-digested combine, with pages assembled from catalogues, brochures, press clips, postcards, and other visuals. Leading artists, curators, and critics from around the world suggested four hundred artists, and each is represented by one page in Charley.

Charley was published by Les presses du réel, in Dijon, France ( and is available in the U.S. through D.A.P. Distributed Art Publishers (T: 212 627-1999; F: 212 627 9484; and in Europe through Idea Books (T: +31 20 62 26 154; F: +33 20 6209299;

ISBN: 1-56466-092-3.


Coming in late fall: Charley 02, a snapshot of the New York City art season from fall 2001 through summer 2002, featuring over 140 of the most important exhibitions and events of the seasonin postcard format.

Charley is powered by the Deste Foundation, Athens Greece.
