Keith Haring: Heaven and Hell, Adriani, Gtz (Edited by); Melcher, Ralph, et al. (Essays by)
2 Adriani, Gtz (Edited by); Melcher, Ralph, et al. (Essays by)
Keith Haring: Heaven and Hell
Ostfildern-Ruit, Germany Hatje Cantz Publishers 2002 3775710825 / 9783775710824 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine Collectible 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
200 pp., illus. (some col.), ports., biblio.; 29 cm. Catalogue of an exhibition held at the Museum fr Neue Kunst, ZKM Karlsruhe, Sept. 23, 2001-Jan. 6, 2002, and at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, May 10-July 21, 2002. AS NEW. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. "The American painter and sculptor Keith Haring, who died in 1990, was undisputedly one of the most popular artists in the 20th century. More than ten years after his death, his output is still as important to younger artists as it is to the wider public. Therefore it seems all the more essential to present a profile of the less well-known Haring - looking beyond the Haring of the ubiquitous, world-famous cheerful matchstick figures. From his earliest days as an artist, Haring engaged with the meaning of death, suffering and violence, with the importance of religion and the afterlife in our own lives. It is only against this background that Keith Haring's positive, life-affirming 'icons' can be properly understood. The main focus of this publication is on paintings and drawings from the artist's estate - some never previously published - and the rarely seen large-format pictures and wall hangings on the theme of Heaven and Hell." - Publisher.

David Armstrong: The Silver Cord, Armstrong, David; Goldin, Nan (Afterword by)
7 Armstrong, David; Goldin, Nan (Afterword by)
David Armstrong: The Silver Cord
Zurich, Berlin, New York Scalo 1997 3931141489 / 9783931141486 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Very Good Collectible 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
119 pp., illus.; 31 cm. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Dust jacket, with light edgewear, protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. "In an age of media hype and political proselytizing David Armstrong's work resonates with calm intensity. The title The Silver Cord is a quote from Ecclesiastes 12,6, a sermon on youth, aging, and a need for spiritual awakening before 'the silver cord is snapped.' A melancholy awareness of time's passing and man's fragility underlies Armstrong's refined portraits and wistful landscapes. David Armstrong, a longtime friend of Nan Goldin's, has kept his work sheltered and protected for almost 25 years. This decision has allowed him to maintain an absolute integrity above and beyond passing trends and fads. His classical, deceptively simple photographs try to capture timeless essence rather than mere circumstance. Armstrong started out as an artist taking pictures of the people who gave meaning to his life. Tender longing pervades his homoerotic portraits of boys in the impermanence of their youth, his studies of close women friends, people of unspecific gender, and of gay couples both old and young. Serenely, Armstrong reveals and celebrates his sitters' vulnerability and desire. His out-of-focus images of gardens, palaces, and New York City streets convey a realm transcending the particularities of time and space. Armstrong's work is an antidote to the growing all-pervasive cynicism around us: he dares you to believe in the truth inherent in beauty." - Publisher.

1987 Biennial Exhibition, Armstrong, Richard, and Hanhardt, John, and Marshall, Richard, and Phillips, Lisa (Curated by)
8 Armstrong, Richard, and Hanhardt, John, and Marshall, Richard, and Phillips, Lisa (Curated by)
1987 Biennial Exhibition
New York Whitney Museum of American Art 1987 0393304396 / 9780393304398 First Edition Soft Cover Very Good Exhibition Catalogue 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
213 pp., illus. (some col.), biblios.; 24 cm. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Spine slightly cocked/lean. Light shelfwear to wraps. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. The Whitney Museum's Annual/Biennial exhibitions began in 1932; a nonjuried exhibition selected by the staff, the current "Whitney Biennial" is a tastemaking blockbuster exhibition that usually provides a good barometer of the contemporary art market, and fills much the same role as the 19th-century Parisian Salon in resisting and coopting the avant-garde. The 1987 Whitney Biennial was notable for the inclusion of many of the post-modern and so-called Neo-Geo artists, such as Ross Bleckner, R. M. Fischer, Peter Halley, Jeff Koons, Barbara Kruger, Richard Prince, Philip Taaffe, others. Also, some overt gay content.

Cambridge, MA MIT Press 2004 0262025701 / 9780262025706 1st Hardcover Very Good Fine 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
Cloth, xxx, 307 pp., illus., video/filmography, index; 24 cm. Near fine. Tight, clean copy. Remainder mark/tail edge. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. "The HIV epidemic animates this collection of essays by a noted artist, writer, and activist. 'So total was the burden of illness--mine and others'--that the only viable response, other than to cease making art entirely, was to adjust to the gravity of the predicament by using the crisis as a lens,' writes Gregg Bordowitz, a film- and video-maker whose best-known works, Fast Trip Long Drop (1993) and Habit (2001), address AIDS globally and personally. In The AIDS Crisis Is Ridiculous--the title essay is inspired by Charles Ludlam, founder of the Ridiculous Theater Company--Bordowitz follows in the tradition of artist-writers Robert Smithson and Yvonne Rainer by making writing an integral part of an artistic practice. / Gregg Bordowitz is an artist, writer, and Professor of Film, Video, and New Media at the School of the Art Institute, Chicago. He is the author of The AIDS Crisis Is Ridiculous and Other Writings, 1986-2003 (MIT Press, 2004). Bordowitz, who has been living with AIDS for two decades, was a member of the groundbreaking AIDS activist group ACT UP. James Meyer is Associate Professor of Art History at Emory University. He is the author of Minimalism: Art and Polemics in the Sixties and the editor of The AIDS Crisis is Ridiculous and Other Writings 1986-2003 by Gregg Bordowitz (MIT Press, 2004)." - Publisher.

Christianity, Social Tolerance, and Homosexuality: Gay People in Western Europe from the Beginning of the Christian Era to the Fourteenth Century
Chicago University of Chicago Press; Phoenix Books 1981 0226067114 / 9780226067117 Paperback Very Good 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
xviii, 424 pp., [6] leaves of plates, illus., biblio., index; 24 cm. Near fine. Tight, clean copy. Age toning. "John Boswell's National Book Award-winning study of the history of attitudes toward homosexuality in the early Christian West was a groundbreaking work that challenged preconceptions about the Church's past relationship to its gay members - among them priests, bishops, and even saints - when it was first published twenty-five years ago. The historical breadth of Boswell's research (from the Greeks to Aquinas) and the variety of sources consulted make this one of the most extensive treatments of any single aspect of Western social history. Christianity, Social Tolerance, and Homosexuality, still fiercely relevant today, helped form the disciplines of gay and gender studies, and it continues to illuminate the origins and operations of intolerance as a social force." - Publisher.
