David Hartt: Stray Light
by David Hartt

David Hartt: Stray Light

When the Johnson Publishing Company, best known for Jet and Ebony, moved into its iconic building on Michigan Avenue, the structure symbolized a bold entry into both the Chicago skyline and the city’s cultural environment. This emblematic building was the first in Chicago designed and owned by African Americans, a modernist masterpiece that in 1980 the Washington Post called, “practically a monument—sometimes an ostentatious one—to black success.”

David Hartt was given unprecedented access to the building, much of which retains its ’70s design, from bright gold accents to vintage see-through furniture. His resulting photographs take viewers on a rich and revealing tour. They capture the distinct physical characteristics while also illuminating the power structures and ideological purposes they once represented. Hartt’s collection also serves as an unexpected final documentation. Not long after Hartt captured these images, the Johnson Publishing Company announced it was selling its building and moving north. Stray Light is a time capsule of a historic building that once symbolized a bright future.

Out [o] Fashion Photography: Embracing Beauty
by Deborah Willis

Out [o] Fashion Photography Image

Out [o] Fashion Photography: Embracing Beauty investigates the transformative experience of the photograph. In this book Deborah Willis explores historical perceptions of beauty and desire through artistic and ethnographic imagery and the role individual photographers play in constructing ways of seeing. Through the themes of idealized beauty, the unfashionable body, the gendered image, and photography as memory, Willis challenges and makes problematic the “reading” of photographic images in the 21st century.

Working from the significant photographic holdings of the University of Washington’s Henry Art Gallery, and the University of Washington Libraries, Special Collections, the author examines shifting gender attitudes that emerged in work by women photographers such as Gertrude Käsebier and Diane Arbus. Willis discusses ethnographic ideologies underpinning the work of Edward Sheriff Curtis and Fred E. Miller who worked with Native American subjects, as well as the framing and reframing of images of black people in the work of Samuel Montague Fassett and Carrie Mae Weems. Additionally, the effects of fashion and desire on the imaging of beauty are examined in the work of such artists as Don Wallen, Janieta Eyre, and Jan Saudek. The book includes full-page illustrations of works by more than fifty internationally recognized photographers including Lisette Model, Imogen Cunningham, Lewis Wickes Hine, Bruce Davidson, Cecil Beaton, Nan Goldin, André Kertész, Lee Friedlander, Lorna Simpson, Cindy Sherman, and Andy Warhol.

Deborah Willis is a professor of photography and imaging at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.

Like a Valentine: The Art of Jeffry Mitchell
by Sara Krajewski

Jeffry Mitchell dust jacket

On the occasion of the exhibition Like a Valentine: The Art of Jeffry Mitchell, the Henry and Marquand Books published the first monograph on the artist’s work. This volume documents Mitchell’s prolific output, trace the evolution of his career, and discuss his work in relationship to greater trends in contemporary art. Furthermore, because many of the artist’s projects were ephemeral or experimental in nature, the monograph will become a crucial reference for understanding work that no longer exists. This publication will become a catalyst for a greater appreciation of Mitchell’s work and his unique contributions to contemporary art beyond the Pacific Northwest.

The Gift Shop by Matthew Offenbacher

Designed by David Knowles

Matthew Offenbacher’s The Gift Shop with orange risograph prints is layered on black and white images of work 2009-2010 multi-artist exhibition at the Henry Art Gallery’s former museum shop. Matthew Offenbacher asks the questions: What can an art exhibition do? How can artists work together? Who is the audience for an art exhibition? What responsibilities do artists have towards their audience? What responsibilites do audiences have? What is the relationship between artists and the institutions who support them? What can we learn from each other?

“Museum gift shops are fabulously liminal places. They sit in the middle of a complex web of transitional space, shifting methods of discourse, utopian and practical considerations, different understandings and misunderstanding of the purpose and function of art.”

The Gift Shop was published by Publication Studio.
