LARA FAVARETTO: AGEING PROCESS. Ed. by Lara Favaretto. MAXXI-Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, Rome, 2016. Published in association with Sternberg Press, Berlin. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 344 pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783956791666 In English.
Due date: October 2016. Publisher's description: Ageing Process, Italian contemporary artist Lara Favaretto's (b. 1973) first monograph, is an unusual journey through an artist's career. Designed as a handbook, the publication links ten essays by ten authors -- artists, curators and architectural historians -- to Favaretto's installations and videos from the 1990s to the present. Themes such as On Ugliness, The Unreadymade, Debt and Materiality, Funny Bone and Distracted -- are presented along with color photographs and detailed information on the artist's work. Favaretto asked each author to imagine their subjects projected into the future and then edited the essays to create a unified discourse with themes complementary but not directly connected to her own practice. The underlying dialogue and contextualization encourage the viewer to engage different facets of Favaretto's work, as does the handsomely designed, chunky craftpaper-covered catalog. Featured contributors include Markus Miessen, Jalal Toufic and others. Favaretto's work has been exhibited in venues as varied as the Venice Biennale, MoMA PS1 and the Carnegie International.
