HOLDER, Will. For the blind man in the dark room looking for the black cat that isn’t there.
(Saint Louis, MO and Lisbon, Portugal): CONTEMPORARYARTMUSEUMSTLOUIS and Culturgest, 2009. First edition. Slim folio. 158 pages. Superb catalogue for the travelling exhibition of the same title. The exhibition was arranged around the premise that the world–and art–is not a code that needs cracking, the works in the exhibition center on the fruitfulness of not-knowing, un-learning, and productive confusion. David Hullfish Bailey, Marcel Broodthaers, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Fischli & Weiss, Rachel Harrison, Giorgio Morandi, Matt Mullican, Rosalind Nashashibi & Lucy Skaer, Frances Stark, Rosemarie Trockel and others present explanations that playfully don’t explain. Dedicated to the inquisitive mind, For The Blind Man celebrates our ability to get lost and the stories we use to find our way in the dark. Illustrated throughout. A near fine copy in wrappers with plastic sleeve. Complete with the 15 large postcards present. Surprisingly scarce.
