Louise LawlerAdjusted

Prestel

Published in conjunction with her exhibition currently on view at Museum Ludwig in Cologne, this volume presents an overview of Lawler’s eclectic body of work, including recent works, which offer insightful and witty revelations about the way art is “consumed” in our current culture, and the way it is modified, or “adjusted,” by the manner in which it is displayed. Texts by curator Philipp Kaiser, Benjamin Buchloh, Hal Foster and Sven Lütticken.

Louise LawlerTwice Untitled and Other Pictures (Looking Back)

The MIT Press
Editor Helen Molesworth
"Twice Untitled and Other Pictures," published in conjunction with Lawler's first major museum exhibition in the United States, organized by the Wexner Center for the Arts, eats away at the standard museum practices of chronology, linear development, and the presentation of masterpieces, opting instead to explore such dynamic themes and undercurrents in Lawler's practice as her relationship to sculpture, her long history of collaborative projects, her production of such ephemera as napkins, matchbooks, and announcement cards, and the steady political dimension of her work. With essays by art historian and political theorist Rosalyn Deutsche and curators Ann Goldstein and Helen Molesworth, "Twice Untitled and Other Pictures" promises to be an essential volume for anyone interested in late 20th and early 21st-century art.

Louise LawlerAn Arrangement of Pictures

Assouline
From an exhibition of Degas' materpieces to an Andy Warhol installation, this book invites you to discover Louise Lawler's unique vision of modern and contemporary art. Lawler is fascinated by what "happens" to the art object after it leaves the artist's studio - where it goes, how it's displayed, how it's valued, what it means. In a Lawler photograph taken in a private home, the furnishings and objects surrounding the art are given as much attention as the art; in a museum, the view out of a window next to the artwork; in an auction house, the label identifying the artwork. Her striking and provocative photographs show us how the environment that surrounds it affects our perception of art and how it in turn affects all aspects of that environment.
