Yellow Creature – Aspects of Transformation

Group exhibition at Kunstmuseum Luzern, Luzern (CH)
The British author and illustrator Mervyn Peake (1911–1968) created the Yellow Creature as early as 1939, a figure that is always changing between woman and man, animal and human while being joyfully true to itself. Thus, Yellow Creature lends its name to the exhibition, which is concerned with the boarders between sexes and categories.

Four Honest Outlaws, book cover

Four Honest Outlaws – Sala Ray Marioni Gordon

published by Michael Fried for the Yale University Press
In this strongly argued and characteristically original book, Michael Fried considers the work of four contemporary artists: video artist and photographer Anri Sala, sculptor Charles Ray, painter Joseph Marioni, and video artist and intervener in movies Douglas Gordon.
«Four Honest Outlaws» takes its title from a line in a Bob Dylan song, «To live outside the law you must be honest», meaning in this case that each of the four artists has found his own unsanctioned path to extraordinary accomplishment, in part by defying the ordinary norms and expectations of the contemporary art world.
Michael Fried will moderate a symposium «PAINTING NOW: A discussion taking off from the work of Joseph Marioni»,
The Phillips Collection, Washington, DC (USA), December 10, 2011
