            Celebrating the 120th anniversary of artist Len Lye (1901-1980), the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery and the Len Lye Foundation co-publish the first collection of the artist's poetry. Introduced and selected by Len Lye Foundation trustee and University of Auckland Professor Emeritus,... Roger Horrocks, the 42 poems collected in Poems are an exciting glimpse into the literary world of Len Lye. Internationally recognised for his pioneering experimental films and boisterous kinetic sculpture, Lye's practice included painting, photography and the written word, a multimedia practice unified around the artist's declared dedication to movement as an artistic medium. As a schoolboy in Aotearoa, Lye considered poetry to be "a lot of romanticised junk," but after moving to London in 1926 he "woke up" to poetry. Lye befriended many famous poets of the day such as Norman Cameron, Dylan Thomas, Robert Graves, Laura Riding and Gertrude Stein. They encouraged him to write because they saw something very original in his quirky style of speech.

            Aztecs: Conquest and Glory (Paperback)

            By Jimson, Kerry

            Drawing on exclusive access to the cultural treasures of Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), this accessible, colorful book tells of the complexity, richness, splendor, and mystery of the Aztec civilization. The book reflects the latest archaeological ...knowledge about the Mexican people and provides exclusive interviews with a range of international experts on Mexican life and culture. Included in the book are more than 200 color reproductions of treasures from the national museums of Mexico, archival documents, iconic codices featuring pictograms of Aztec writing, and rare archaeological images from the temples--particularly the Templo Mayor where human sacrifices were made less than 500 years ago. The story of the Aztecs is fascinating, dramatic, and ultimately tragic--from its mythic origins, rituals, and ways of life to its tragic conquest--and this visually stunning resource reflects the profound heritage of Aztec culture and its continuing importance at the heart of Mexican life today.

            Joan Mitchell: I carry my landscapes around with me

            I carry my landscapes around with me focuses on American abstract artist Joan Mitchell's large-scale multipanel works from the 1960s through the 1990s. Mitchell's exploration of the possibilities afforded by combining two to five large canvases allowed her to simultaneously creat...e continuity and rupture, while opening up a panoramic expanse referencing landscapes or the memory of landscapes. Mitchell established a singular approach to abstraction over the course of her career. Her inventive reinterpretation of the traditional figure-ground relationship and synesthetic use of color set her apart from her peers, resulting in intuitively constructed and emotionally charged compositions that alternately evoke individuals, observations, places, and points in time. Art critic John Yau lauded her paintings as one of the towering achievements of the postwar period. Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at David Zwirner New York in 2019, this book offers a unique opportunity to explore the range of scale and formal experimentation of this innovative area of Mitchell's extensive body of work. It not only features reproductions of each painting in this selection as a whole, but also numerous details that allow an intimate understanding of the surface texture and brushwork. In the complementing essays, Suzanne Hudson examines boundaries, borders, and edges in Mitchell's multipanel paintings, beginning with her first work of this kind, The Bridge (1956), considering them as both physical and conceptual objects; Robert Slifkin discusses the dynamics of repetition and energy in the artist's paintings, in relation to works by Monet and Willem de Kooning, among others.
