Texts by Peter Doroshenko, Eric Fischl

“I am one of the first generation artists who grew up in the suburbs. We grew up, post-WWII, in an ascendant America in which the suburbs was its utopian manifestation. We came into our art maturity painfully aware of the disconnection between what was promised and what was delivered.”
—Eric Fischl

Eric Fischl (New York, 1948) is one of only a handful of contemporary painters who regularly, though by no means exclusively, employs sourced images, culled from the internet, newspapers, and magazines, to inform his paintings. The artist then adds his own photographs and blends a final ensemble of information and storytelling. No kings or generals or momentous battles move across Fischl’s canvases, and most of his subjects are quotidian rather than grandiose—suburban bourgeois families, art world mongers and awkward social interactions. In his works, communication is nonexistent and boredom is pervasive. The book, published on the occasion of a solo show held at Dallas Contemporary museum, includes more than 120 painting reproductions and a conversation between Eric Fischl and Peter Doroshenko.

A Retrospective by Appointment
David Maljković

David Maljković’s A Retrospective by Appointment (2015) defied expectations, problematizing the genre of the retrospective. Taking place across three different exhibition spaces in Zagreb—the artist’s studio, Gallery Nova, and the Gallery of Croatian Designers’ Association—it avoided the usual approach of showing the development of the artist’s “style” over time, and instead treated the exhibits in a nonhierarchical way. Maljković’s key concerns and methods—individual and collective relationships, the complexities of time, collagist approaches, self-referentiality and referencing the work of other artists, the use of earlier works and exhibition displays as material, art’s autonomy, and the nature of the gaze—were all carefully choreographed in installations that treated major works, early student sketches, and film props equally. Unexpected, poetic, and sometimes humorous situations created the cumulative effect of throwing visitors off balance. The book follows the experimental format of the exhibition, and is conceived as an ironic deconstruction of retrospective format, as well as a critical intervention into the institutional landscape in Zagreb.
