Aaron Curry/Richard Hawkins
This gorgeous artist’s book project documents the eponymous collaborative exhibition between Aaron Curry and Richard Hawkins at David Kordansky Gallery in 2011. Brian Roettinger’s book design is a true highlight—the unique smyth-sewn volume has eight page-folded signatures showing detail shots on the external pages, with a perforated- finish top and a flush-cut open bottom that reveals full images of works and installation views in shades of lime green, chartreuse and shocking purple. Reveling in critical juxtapositions—Curry’s sculptures offer evocative reworkings of biomorphic imagery of the mid-century avant- garde; Hawkins’s collages, paintings and installations focus on voyeurism and the male form—both artists draw from high and low culture with equal zeal. Featured texts by Richard Hawkins and Stuart Krimko.
