Chartered airplanes will fly banners created by 15 text-savvy artists including Richard Prince, Jenny Holzer, Lawrence Weiner, and Martin Creed high above the waterfront every afternoon for four hours for the duration of Art Basel Miami. Here is Ed Ruscha’s inclusion, entitled People Getting Ready To Do Things.
This volume compiles all of the photographs from Terry Richardson’s wildly successful 2012 show Terrywood, held at the OHWOW gallery in Los Angeles. Terrywood is the photographer’s vision of everything that Hollywood has meant and continues to mean in the public imagination: grand-scale glitz, big-budget glamour-and of course the awards ceremonies, in homage to which Richardson produced a series of ten award statuettes for the show, fashioned in his own bespectacled likeness. You can buy the monograph here.
Autre’s Infinite Journal is now floating around Miami Basel. If you can’t find one sign up for the newsletter to find a copy.
Lisson Gallery presents an exhibition of new works by seminal American artist, Lawrence Weiner. Widely recognised for his pioneering role in the development of conceptualism in the 1960s, Weiner has spent the last five decades deconstructing artistic practices into various concepts of language and idea. In his new show, Weiner focuses on the concept of truncation, a mathematical term referring to the discarding of unnecessary digits, as an inherent meaning and material reality. His works will populate the gallery walls on a grand and small scale, and will include a new piece occupying the entirety of a 12 metre wall. Be That As It May will be on view until January 12, 2013 at Lisson Gallery, 52-54 Bell Street, London
Brussels based publishing house Shelter Press presents Camille Vivier’s new book titled Veronesi Rose. Born in Paris in 1977, Camille Vivier started her photography career as an assistant in Purple magazine. After studying at the Grenoble Fine Arts School and Saint Martins, she dedicated herself entirely to photography and works at the same time in the art and fashion worlds. Camille Vivier explains her her new book: “Girls lying on concrete disonaurs are facing obsolete neon signs. Broken, knocked down, abstract, discarded, left there. The girls are naked, in black and white, static. The neons are coloured, saturated like comic strip boxes. Prehistoric monsters, mysterious beauties follow and merge with relics of modern cities. Metals, skins and stones collide. Pages unattached slide and mix to deceive time and order.” See more photographs from the book after the jump. [CLICK HERE...]

Gladstone Gallery presents an exhibition of new paintings by Carroll Dunham. Featuring nine works that draw on the motifs of nude bathers and pastoral landscapes familiar from Dunham’s earlier paintings, the exhibition highlights the artist’s continuing interest in these themes. Expanding upon the visual language that characterized his previous works, Dunham demonstrates a shift in his formal decision making, adhering less strictly to the subject’s formal vocabulary and iconography, and instead allowing each work to evolve as a singular painting rather than as a work in a series. On view until January 19, 2013 at Gladstone Gallery, 515 West 24th Street, New York. See more photographs after the jump. [CLICK HERE...]
