  5. Mickalene Thomas: Muse Box Set

    Mickalene Thomas: Muse Box Set

    $9,000.00

    Aperture is pleased to present a very special limited-edition Mickalene Thomas boxset, comprised of the photograph A moment's pleasure in black and white, 2006/8 and a specially bound signed copy of MUSE. Mickalene Thomas, known for her large-scale, multi-textured, and rhinestone-encrusted paintings of domestic interiors and portraits, has also identified the photographic image as a defining touchstone for her practice. Thomas first began to photograph herself and her mother as a student at Yale—a pivotal experience for her as an artist. While working across multiple series, much of her photographic work functions as a personal act of deconstruction and reappropriation—both of images she has created herself and images she has singled out as influence. With each series, she grapples with and asserts new definitions of beauty and inspiration. Thomas’s portraits draw equally from 1970s black-is-beautiful images of women such as supermodel Beverly Johnson and actress Vonetta McGee; Édouard Manet’s odalisque figures; and the mise-en-scène studio portraiture of James Van Der Zee and Malick Sidibé, to mention a few. Perhaps of greatest importance, however, this collection of portraits and staged scenes reflects a very personal community of inspiration as well—a collection of muses that includes herself, her mother, and her friends and lovers, emphasizing the communal and social aspects of art-making and creativity that pervade her work. This volume is the first to gather together her various approaches to photography, including portraits, collages, Polaroids, and other processes, and will be the foundation for a major traveling exhibition of the work to launch in 2015.

  6. Mickalene Thomas: Muse Box Set

    Mickalene Thomas: Muse Box Set

    $10,000.00

    Aperture is pleased to present a very special limited-edition Mickalene Thomas boxset, comprised of the photograph Le déjeuner sur l’herbe: les trois femmes noires and a specially bound signed copy of MUSE. In “Le déjeuner sur l’herbe: les trois femmes noires” (2010), Thomas transforms Edouard Manet’s notorious canvas (1862-3) into a collaged photograph, as well as a large-scale rhinestone-encrusted mural. Thomas has replaced Manet’s scandalizing dressed men and naked women with three black women who gaze directly at the viewer, dressed to the nines in sundresses, hoop earrings, and full make-up. Of the photograph, Thomas said, “When I was looking through the lens and trying to compose the image I wanted to have the depth of field that Manet has with the woman in the background, and it created that same environment with the Matisse sculpture taking the place of the fourth figure. Everything fell into place. Everything felt right. I didn’t have to try reconstructing things or forcing things. I saw it and I responded and it worked.” Learn More

    Sochi Project Box Set: An Atlas of War and Tourism in the Caucasus

    $575.00

    Out of stock

    This Special Edition of 'An Atlas of War and Tourism in the Caucasus' consists of a signed copy of the book and a protective folder with two signed and numbered C-prints in a handmade red linen slipcase. Hamzad Ivloev, Nazran, Ingushetia, 2012: Hamzad Ivloev, 44, was a policeman in Karabulak. One night he discovered a booby trap. At that moment reinforcements arrived. Hamzad started screaming and telling them to run away. But no one responded. He decided to throw himself on the grenade. "In retrospect, it was all for nothing. I sacrificed myself for a bunch of cowards", he says bitterly. Elena, Sochi, Russia, 2012: Elena, thirty-one, has been a dancer at Art Klub, the strip club on the first floor of the monstrous Hotel Zhemchuzhina, for eighteen months. Loud music, sweaty bodies on the pebble beach, and striptease are perhaps more at home in Sochi than the sporting spectacles of the Winter Olympics. The coming years will prove what survives of both.
