Lisa Yuskavage: Babie Brood is the first up-to-date survey of the artist´s small-scale paintings. Known primarily for larger canvases, these intimate works offer a new window into Yuskavage´s transgressive paintings. Based on the artist´s imagination, live models, and maquettes, among other things, the small paintings in this book demonstrate Yuskavage´s methodical exploration of how images come into existence, and where they come from. Some of the small works are studies for large paintings, while others revisit pre-existing images. Yet others are one-of-a-kind compositions only created on this intimate scale. As places for experimenting with color, form, and characters as well as a variety of formats-including stretched and unstretched linen, canvas boards, wood, and paper-these works, play a remarkably dynamic and role within her oeuvre. This catalogue presents the paintings to scale so readers can explore them as if seeing them in person. Documenting the artist´s exhibition at David Zwirner in New York in 2018, this catalogue includes an essay by Jarrett Earnest illuminating Yuskavage´s early influences and exploring the constant, often surprising, themes that can be found throughout her oeuvre.

´´Eight years in the White House went by so fast. That´s why I´m so grateful that Lawrence was there to capture them. I hope you enjoy his work as much as I do.´´ --From the foreword by Barack Obama When Lawrence Jackson took the job as White House photographer in early 2009, he knew he´d have a front row seat to history. What he didn´t expect was the deep personal connection he would feel, as a fellow African American, with the President of the United States. Yes We Did is filled with Lawrence´s intimate photographs and reflections, as well as first-person recollections from President Obama, everyday citizens, and notable personalities including Bono, Stephen Curry, Valerie Jarrett, Admiral Mike Mullen, and others. The book is a celebration of the most inclusive and representative White House in history - where in between momentous and pivotal decisions, the President and First Lady opened the doors of the People´s House to schoolkids, athletes, senior citizens, hip-hop artists, and more. For anyone who misses the humanity, grace, and undefinable ´´cool factor´´ of the Obama White House, this warm and inspiring book provides an affirming, proud, and focused lens on our history.

Studio 360 (English): Miss Bala & Jack DeJohnet...

In last week’s State of the Union address, President Obama reminded us of China’s turbocharged economy outstripping our own. But when it comes to the global culture war for hearts and minds, the United States remains the unrivaled superpower. For now. Next, last month, thousands of mathematicians attended the Joint Mathematics Meeting in Boston — the largest annual gathering of its kind. In addition to presentations on phylogenetic algebraic geometry and trace formulas, the conference featured an art exhibition, with 80 artists presenting more than 120 works. Then, in Mexico’s drug war, nearly 50,000 people are estimated to have been killed since 2006, and there seems to be no end in sight. A new film called Miss Bala is an artful, riveting depiction of that war, and it isn’t the good guys-bad guys shoot-em-up you might expect. After that, the drummer Jack DeJohnette has recorded with all the jazz superheroes of the last half century — Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, and Keith Jarrett, to name a few. He was recently named a Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts, recognizing a lifetime of contributions to the field.Following that, we received hundreds of submissions to our 420-character-story challenge. Although the contest is over, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to call a couple more authors and have them read their work.And finally, In 2009 the composer Eve Beglarian spent four months traveling down the Mississippi River — from the Headwaters in northern Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico. She made the trip mostly in a kayak, trading off for a bicycle on some stretches. But ´´it wasn’t stressful exercise,” she tells Kurt Andersen. ´´It was that kind of wonderful exercise where your mind can travel as you’re travelling. And I think it put me in a different kind of place in relation to the sources of my creativity.” [Broadcast Date: Feburary 4, 2012] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kurt Andersen.

Fats Domino - Early Imperial Singles Vol.1 (CD
15,95 € *
zzgl. 3,99 € Versand

(1950-52 ´Imperial´) (72:43/30) Fats Domino is a true legend of rock´n´roll. His uniqueness was summed up for me way back in 1973 by New Orleans studio owner Cosimo Matassa when I interviewed him for my book ´Walking To New Orleans´: ´No matter what Fats does he comes through. He could be singing the National Anthem, which everybody until recently did straight, no fooling around or anything, you´d still know by the time he said two words it was him - obviously, unmistakeably and pleasurably him, Domino fits that, just opens his mouth...in fact he just hits an opening chord on his piano and you know it. I´d like to have that, I think anybody would.´The cuddly, teddy bear-like Fat Man first broke into national consciousness in the mid-50s with international hits like Ain´t That A Shame, I´m In Love Again, Blue Monday, I´m Walkin´ and especially Blueberry Hill. Since then his Imperial Recordings have been frequently reissued on LP and CD, but until now his early singles (A & B sides) have never been compiled in a single package in chronological order. As a result we are able to trace Fats´ crucial development from a raw young boogie woogie pianist and blues singer (yes, blues!) into an R&B star, before becoming the hit artist we all know and love. An added bonus is that with modern studio technology the crude original recordings have been cleaned up as never before.Our 30-track CD is further enhanced by the perceptive notes of Rick Coleman from New Orleans, who is in the process of finalising Fats´ biography. Rick takes us through Fats´ discovery at the Hideaway Club by future producer Dave Bartholomew and Imperial label chief Lew Chudd the initial session featuring The Fat Man (which was almost rejected because of the low-fi recording quality) the early, less-than-successful, tours the gradual evolution of Fats´ renowned band the disagreement with Dave Bartholomew which led to record shop owner Al Young producing a short series of earthy recordings with Domino´s own band (rather that the ubiquitous Bartholomew Orchestra) the previously unrecognised session held in Nashville in 1952 by Ted Jarrett (whose work will be featured in upcoming Ace and Kent CDs) and the reconciliation with Dave Bartholomew. The gutsy boogie´n´blues music of the early Imperial 78s and 45s is highlighted by the R&B hits The Fat Man, Every Night About This Time and Goin´ Home we have also included two stellar bonus tracks, The Fat Man´s Hop and Hey! Fat Man which were unreleased on singles at the time. This release follows in the footsteps of two favourite long-deleted LPs Rare Dominos (Liberty) and Boogie Woogie Baby (Ace) - it is a vivid snapshot of rock´n´roll history in the making.
