Brutalist Readings
Essays on Literature “John Douglas Millar’s Brutalist Readings: Essays on Literature is a significant intervention into recent debates on the place of literature and writing in the context of contemporary art. Featuring essays on the highs and lows of the conceptual turn in poetics, avant-garde literary genealogies, and monographic pieces on Paul B. Preciado, Chris Kraus, and Pierre Guyotat, among others, Brutalist Readings explores the radical histories of writing, as well as its potential now.” Design by Present Perfect

Micheal Jackson and Other Men, Dawn Mellor, published by our friends at Studio Voltaire in South London . This book is a collection of the artist's drawings of Micheal Jackson, Richard Pryor, Bill Cosby, Carl Lewis and unnamed black protesters made as a white teenager in Thatcherite Britain & in an era of South African Apartheid. Revisiting the works as a more informed adult Mellor writes "I now view the drawings as a cringe-inducing fusion of mawkish emphatic identification, political naivety and witless self-pity"
The works provide an obsessive adolescent POV of celebrity, racism and sexuality sourced only from weekly magazines and a pre internet media landscape fascinated by celebrity, dominated by sexism and racism, where marginal voices were rigorously excluded and where media consumers are complicit.

If you are in NYC - Sirens, an exhibition of new work by Dawn Mellor opens at Team (gallery inc) Nov. 9th!
