Wade Guyton: Das New Yorker Atelier, Abridged
This publication is conceived to accompany Wade Guyton’s exhibition Das New Yorker Atelier, Abridged at the Serpentine Gallery (29 September 2017 - 4 February 2018).
American artist Wade Guyton uses digital technologies – iPhones, cameras, computers and consumer-grade Epson printers – as tools to create both large-scale paintings on linen and smaller compositions on paper. Guyton is interested in the translations that take place between these tools, transforming three-dimensional space into digital information that is subsequently reproduced on surfaces and in space.
This book is inspired by traditional exhibition guides and is designed to be a portable accompaniment to the exhibition, and a record of the works included in the gallery. It includes a foreword by Serpentine Galleries CEO, Yana Peel and Artistic Director, Hans Ulrich Obrist; as well as two newly commissioned texts: Alex Kitnick has contributed an essay that draws links between the sites of production and exhibition of Guyton’s work; and Flame have written about the modes of temporality within Guyton’s practice. This book has been designed by Henrik Nygren Design.
