Badlands: The Book

Badlands: New Horizons in Landscape surveys a contemporary approach the landscape, continuing a lineage from the Impressionists to Ansel Adams to the Earth Artists to today. For the exhibition’s catalogue (distributed by The MIT Press), curator Denise Markonish and I wanted to create a kind of field guide for the exhibition, a book that you could hold in your hand while walking through the show. You can purchase the book in Hardware: The MASS MoCA Store or on Amazon.

The catalogue is divided into four sections—The Historians, The Explorers, The Activists & The Pragmatists, and The Aestheticists—and features essays by Denise, Ginger Strand, Gregory Volk, and Tensie Whelan and a foreword from MASS MoCA Director Joseph Thompson.

But the best part is that Denise interviewed each artist for the catalogue. After the jump are a few personal favorites.

Thoughts on Democracy

tod_cpb_web_blk.jpg

Former MASS MoCA Design Director Tim Hossler has a great new project cooking at his new digs, the Wolfsonian in Miami Beach. For Thoughts on Democracy, Tim asked a host of amazing designers (Chip Kidd, James Victore, Winterhouse, Paula Scher, Wim Crouwel, to name a few) to riff on Norman Rockwell’s “Four Freedoms” posters, which were recently donated to the Wolfsonian by Leonard Lauder. (One of my favorites, from Crispin Porter + Bogusky, is above.)

Doug Speaks

MASS MoCA’s former director of design Doug Bartow (now in his own shop, id29) granted an interview. We know we were his best client ever and we know you should look for him on the podium next year as best actor in a documentary short film (but we hope he loses the goatee before then.)

If you’re interested in the history of MASS MoCA, you may find this enlightening.
