SUPERFLEX---LA Times: Art meets books: Very cool and far away

The exhibit will be on the museum's sixth floor. Another, Printin', will be on the second, in the Paul J. Sachs Prints and Illustrated Books Galleries. It takes as its start "DeLuxe," a portfolio of 60 works by Ellen Gallagher, and then "brings work by more than 50 artists from multiple disciplines in a sweeping chronology that extends from the 17th century to the present day, to propose a free-flowing yet incisive web of associations that are reflected in DeLuxe." Both exhibits will be up from mid-February to mid-May.

An associated exhibit opened this week: Print Studio in the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building. The independent Brooklyn-based Reanimation Library is among the projects that can be found in the Print Studio through March 9, where interactivity is encouraged. The Reanimation Library is a showcase of books that have fallen out of circulation that have strong visual components. Its "outdated and discarded" books, it writes, "have been culled from thrift stores, stoop sales, and throw-away piles, and given new life as a resource for artists, writers, cultural archeologists, and other interested parties."

Opening in Februrary in the Cullman building is another related exhibit, Millennium Magazines, a survey of art and design magazines. Will it include shelter porn like "Dwell"? Maybe. The exhibit "explores the various ways in which contemporary artists and designers utilize the magazine format as an experimental space for the presentation of artworks and text." Or maybe not. The exhibit closes in mid-May.

A number of gallery talks and other conversations are scheduled for the duration. They include a conversation with Ellen Gallagher, a panel discussion with K8 Hardy of "LTTR," Flint Jamison of "Veneer Magazine," Kristina Lee Podesva and Jeff Khonsary of "Fillip," Anthony Smyrski of "Megawords," and Marina Abramović in conversation with art publisher Jacob Samuel.
