BOOK LAUNCH: Anne Lindberg
January 6, 2023
Carrie Secrist Gallery is pleased to announce the publication of Anne Lindberg’s monograph Anne Lindberg published by Dürer Editions and publisher Richard Power (2022). The gallery will hold a book release on January 6, 2023 from 5 to 8PM in conjunction with the opening of the artist’s project Afterimage, featuring new drawings at the gallery.
The publication includes work from the last ten years, interweaving images of immersive site-specific installations with drawings and four essays. The writers are Theresa Bembnister (curator at the Arkansas Museum of Arts), Jeffrey Kastner (writer, critic for Art Forum and Senior Editor of Cabinet magazine), Caroline Kipp (Curator of Contemporary Art at The Textile Museum), and Kevin Moore (independent curator, writer, owner of Liberal Arts Roxbury and Creative Director for FotoFocus). Rather than following a time narrative or specific theme, the book introduces a fresh and thoughtful sequence of images of work to bring one closer to the reality of being with Lindberg’s work in person.
On the first pages of the book, Lindberg asks “Why is color so powerful?” For her the answer begins with the body. In works that range from site-specific “drawings in space” made from fine chromatic thread to large-scale drawings of graphite and colored pencil, Lindberg generates experiences that transcend language, slow time, and tap into something at the core of us, with the belief that a kind of alchemy can exist in everyday life.
As Kastner writes in his essay in the book entitled Linear Perspectives, “That in the works’ shifts from 2D to 3D, we are not being shown two things, no matter how related they might be, but are instead being guided by the artist to resituate ourselves in order to fully understand the one thing we’re looking at—nothing less than energetic exchange between matter and space that shapes our experience in and of the natural world.”
For more than thirty years, Lindberg has exhibited her visually complex drawings and immersive thread installations in venues across the United States and internationally, including Museum of Fine Arts Boston, The Drawing Center, U.S. Consulate General (Dhahran, Saudi Arabia), SESCA Bom Retiro (Sao Paulo, Brazil), Tegneforbundet (Oslo, Norway), The Rachofsky Collection, Galerie Herbert Winter (Vienna), Akron Art Museum, Nevada Museum of Art, Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, Cranbrook Art Museum, Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Museum of Arts and Design (NYC), Contemporary Art Museum Raleigh, Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, and Contemporary Art Center Cincinnati, among numerous others. Lindberg has upcoming solo exhibitions in 2023 at The Textile Museum at George Washington University Museums, Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts, and September Gallery.
Anne Lindberg is 112 pages, designed by John Power and Simon Watson and printed by Artes Gráficas Palermo, Madrid. A Collector’s edition of the book (edition of 12) is signed, numbered with a slipcase and includes a signed original artwork. Copies of the book and a Collector’s edition will be available at the gallery.
