Artbook at MoMA PS1

Artbook at MoMA PS1 ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1 From a few pushcarts in the lobby of P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in 2004, the Artbook @ MoMA PS1 Bookstore has grown to become the most vibrant source for cutting-edge contemporary art books on the East Coast, a treasure trove of books, DVDs and CDs rarely found elsewhere and a destination for lovers of contemporary culture.

Artbook @ MoMA PS1 Bookstore offers a huge selection of titles on contemporary culture and art, including MoMA PS1 exhibition-related publications (and other MoMA PS1 products), books relating to current New York shows and a large, adventurous stock of monographs, theory, photography, performance, music, new media, plus CDs, DVDs and journals.

Today, Friday, July 30, NY PopsUp is hosting a free reading of Brontez Purnell’s ‘100 Boyfriends’ on Rashid Johnson’s Stage in the Courtyard at MoMA PS1. Brontez Purnell is a writer, musician, dancer, filmmaker, and performance artist from Triana, Alabama based in Oakland, California.

Visit the Bookstore or link below to pick up a SIGNED copy of ‘100 Boyfriends’ and join us on July 30 at 5:30 PM to hear excerpts read by the author himself. Tickets to the event are included in Museum entry. Visit momaps1.org to reserve your spot!

‘100 Boyfriends’ shares intimate and humorous recounts of fictional, though entrancing, gay relationships: childhood bullies/crushes, long-term partners, friends with benefits, co-worker’s husbands, Satanist hookups… These relationships– no matter the extent– are each told from the perspective of a new narrator, all Black, all q***r, and all longing for a sense of belonging and care. As Purnell has been called “a living archive of the Bay’s q***r and punk scenes,” the stories he creates are reflective of his own experiences and those of the q***r communities in the American South and the San Francisco Bay Area. Through each voice, Purnell’s tone shifts between desire, tenderness, eroticism, curiosity, naiveté, pain, and countless more emotions all can identify with. His characters are heroes in their own ways, even as they “tiptoe through minefields of romantic, substance-fueled misadventure,” With each page revolving around the “boyfriend,” we can’t help but wonder: What classifies as a boyfriend?

“My mother had explained to me that buildings needed human breath in them to keep them moist and held together,” one character recalls. “Abandoned buildings are like abandoned people — they die sooner.” –Brontez Purnell, ‘100 Boyfriends’

Rashid Johnson’s Stage, the location of Friday’s reading, is a participatory installation that draws from the history of the microphone as a tool for protest as well as a lyrical reference in hip-hop since the 1980s. This yellow powder-coated stage is sprawling with Johnson’s signature markings and supports five SM58 microphones that echo throughout the exterior of the museum. Any and all guests are welcome to speak, sing, protest, or rejoice by means of the Stage and MoMA PS1 is ecstatic to welcome Brontez Purnell.

Surprising absolutely nobody, the National Book Critics Circle recently picked ‘Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration,’ by Dr. Nicole R. Fleetwood, as one of the best books of criticism published in 2020, and on the shortlist for their Criticism prize, to be announced tonight, Thursday, March 25, at 7PM EST.

For the last six months we have been humbled and honored to be the home base bookstore for Dr. Fleetwood's visionary exhibition catalogue, which serves not only as a guide to her landmark show but also as a manifesto in imagining, practicing, and proliferating creativity and freedom despite and beyond duress. We’re with her every step of the way, all the way to abolition. Dr. Fleetwood comes into the Bookstore sometimes to sign books and check in and chat for a while. She signs every book “To art & freedom!”—the most important things in the world, which she knows and means.

Signed books are available, which you will want to have when 'Marking Time' wins the National Book Critics Circle award. Visit our Bookstore or click below to order signed copies online. With love and solidarity from Artbook @ MoMA PS1 Bookstore.

Book launch details below!

🐍 Pre-order the exhibition catalogue "Niki de Saint Phalle: Structures for Life" from Artbook at MoMA PS1 and support independent bookstores. A new exploration of Niki de Saint Phalle’s colorful and compelling public structures featuring archival materials and more, this volume brings newfound attention to Saint Phalle’s work in architecture and public sculpture, and the commercial products such as perfume and jewelry that she produced to fund these ambitious projects. Get yours at mo.ma/order and stream the book launch online Thursday at 1 p.m. EST at mo.ma/launch

With a wide selection of images of her architectural works and rarely seen archival materials, this book places these projects in the context of her larger boundary-defying practice, drawing connections with politically charged works such as the films and books she made in response to the AIDS crisis in the 1980s. Charting Saint Phalle's many efforts to radically open her practice beyond the confines of the art world, it serves as a survey of her practice from the 1960s until the early 2000s.

Dear young artists, thinkers, book worms: Artbook stores @artbookhwla and @artbookps1 are seeking interns who are interested in how independent bookstores are coming to terms with the 21st century retail reality. The internship is remote with the possibility of in-store tasks if agreed upon and as circumstances allow. The stores follow the Covid-19 guidelines at all times at both locations. The virtual internship allows for a long-distance internship experience, an unusual situation given that independent bookstores are, by nature, rooted in a specific place and therefore engage with local residents and culture.

For more information about the internship and how to apply, visit our website: https://www.artbook.com/jobs-ny-artbook.html

"This is for you." Send a personalized Artbook Gift Card from me @ you & you @ me.

You know that they like books, but it is hard to select which book to give when you cannot visit a bookstore and look at the books, to find the special book that speaks for you, says “this is for you.” Online ordering doesn’t give you the ability to discover titles like in store, where staff has selected titles to be discovered. Or you might want to give a book to someone who you know likes books, but what book? Then the me @ you & you @ me gift card is perfect to speak for you.

Buy online, for instant usage, or order a physical gift card, mailed to you or yours with free U.S. shipping. Both options can be used online at artbook.com and in our stores in NYC, LA, and pop-up and fair stores around the country.

Read on for another great reason to visit MoMA PS1, reopening today, September 17--and come back for the Bookstore reopening on Saturday. September 26!

Here's a preview of what you might experience at PS1 after our reopening on Thursday 👂

“Stage" is a new interactive installation by Rashid Johnson, offering a place for the public to speak their mind, or to simply 🎷. Audio from the mics is broadcast throughout the courtyard live and will be recorded and rebroadcast intermittently. We invite you to get onto "Stage" and contribute to this expanding collaborative and participatory audio repository.

In this moment of vast uncertainty and widespread protest, the work also points to the tension between the power of the voice as a tool for change, and fear of the voice as a potential transmitter of illness. The work is sanitized between each use, and visitors are required to wear face masks when interacting with the installation and throughout their visit. mo.ma/stage

We're so excited for the opening of the "Marking Time" exhibition TODAY at MoMA PS1, and the Bookstore opening on Saturday, September 26!
To order a copy of Nicole R. Fleetwood's book, "Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration," with free U.S. shipping, email [email protected].

"A thoroughly researched and heartbreakingly personal look at prison art and the broader visual culture of incarceration, and the way art becomes a mode of relationality among prisoners who use it to combat the imposed isolation of imprisonment." – ARTnews

Opening Thursday, "Marking Time" features art made by people in prisons and work by nonincarcerated artists concerned with state repression, erasure, and imprisonment. The exhibition is organized by Dr. Nicole R. Fleetwood in conjunction with her new book "Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration."

Why is the United States Post Office so important?

The USPS keeps independent bookstores alive by providing affordable and reliable shipping. 📚📦

The USPS transports vital resources including: prescription medications, food supplies, census forms, mail-in voting and absentee ballots, and much more. If the mail service becomes privatized this means that private mail carriers will get to dictate where they do, and do not, deliver.

Who will be impacted the most if USPS shutter? Poor people, the elderly, small businesses and Americans who live in rural areas. The USPS also provides 600,000 Americans with well-paying jobs, including nearly 100,000 military members and veterans. Did you know that in low income neighborhoods the post office also serves as a bank, where you can buy money orders to pay rent and bills? Shutting down this service is class warfare.

We must keep the mail accessible for everybody, everywhere! 📫

What can you do to help the USPS?

Text “USPS” to 50409 to electronically generate and send letters to your representatives based on your zip code. This is a legitimate service and only takes a few minutes with basic information.

OR

Buy some stamps and write some letters to your elected officials this week and let them know we have to keep the USPS funded. Make your voice heard! 💌
