Brice Marden
It reminds me of something, and I don’t know what it is.

Brice Marden: It reminds me of something, and I don’t know what it is. is available for online reading from June 15 through July 14 as part of the From the Library series. Published on the occasion of the 2019 exhibition at Gagosian, 980 Madison Avenue, New York, the catalogue features full-color reproductions of Marden’s latest body of paintings and works on paper, which continues the Letter series he initiated in 2006. The book includes a new essay by John Elderfield, in which the curator and art historian discusses the new works in the context of modernist painting and of Marden’s oeuvre, and investigates the allusions the works seem to make.

Brice Marden

Brice Marden is available for online reading from October 11 through November 9 as part of the From the Library series. This catalogue was published on the occasion of the artist’s 2017 exhibition at Gagosian, Grosvenor Hill, London, and focuses on Marden’s terre verte paintings. For the series of ten identically sized paintings measuring eight by six feet, he has employed ten different brands of terre verte oil paint—from his favored Williamsburg to Holbein and Sennelier, among others—each a variation on the indefinable hue. The slow-drying paint is thinned and applied gradually to the canvas in many successive veils, building a surface of transparent yet intense color. New texts by Paul Hills and Noah Dillon, and a conversation between Marden, Gary Hume, and Tim Marlow examine this new body of work from multiple perspectives.

Brice Marden is collaborating with choreographer Pam Tanowitz and composer Kaija Saariaho to present Four Quartets, a dance performance based on T. S. Eliot’s modernist masterpiece published in 1943. The evocative stage design centers on paintings by Marden, their exquisite colors and imagery making connections to the geographical locations of the poem cycle’s four individual parts. Containing piercing and unforgettable literary passages, this unprecedented collaborative performance is the first to be authorized by the T. S. Eliot Estate. To attend the event, purchase tickets at cap.ucla.edu.

To learn more about the collaboration read an interview with Marden about the canvases that form the set design on Gagosian Quarterly.
