Art Schooled by Jamie Coe (Nobrow) $22.95 – Daniel Stope is a small-town guy who dreams of becoming an artist. His enrollment at art school and consequent move to the city opens up a world of exciting possibiles. Unsurprisingly, Daniel struggles with his newfound independence – the difficulties of dating and making new friends in the big smoke. Jamie Coe delivers his first full length graphic novel; an observational narrative on his own experience at art school. Coe critiques the extremes of his environment whilst  painting a funny and a colourful portrait of a pivotal time in a young artists’ life. Art Schooled is an incisive and warm graphic novel that  is resolutely contemporary.

New Stuff This Week

noiseinmyheadNoise in My Head: Voices from the Ugly Australian Underground by Jimi Kritzler (Hozac Books) $55.95 – The Ugly Australian Underground documents the music, songwriting, aesthetics and struggles of fifty of Australia’s most innovative and significant bands and artists currently at the creative peak of their careers. The book is complimented by previously unpublished photographs of all bands interviewed. The Australian underground scene in the last five years has been heralded not only in Australia but also in Europe, and particularly in America. Known as the ‘Australian Invasion,’ many of the bands interviewed in this book have received a great deal of hype and press in America, with many of the bands signing to American record labels. Bands featured in the book, such as The Drones, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Royal Headache, Uv Race, Circle Pit, HTRK, Lost Animal, Oren Ambarchi, Total Control, Witch Hats, Deaf Wish, Blank Realm, New War, Holy Balm, Fabulous Diamonds, The Garbage and The Flowers, Straight Arrows, xNoBBQx, Naked on the Vague, Kitchen’s Floor and My Disco are all on American record labels, and have toured America at least once. Eddy Current Suppression Ring even lent their song ‘Memory Lane’ to an American telecommunications company advertisement, which was played repeatedly during the Super Bowl. While that may indicate the influence of the band in America at the more mainstream end of the spectrum, at the other end, Eddy Current Suppression Ring are a culturally significant and revered underground band, who play to thousands of people at any given show.

New Stuff This Week

whatnerveWhat Nerve!: Alternative Figures in American Art, 1960 to the Present by Dan Nadel, Dominic Molon, Roger Brown and Robert Cozzolino (RISD Museum of Art/D.A.P) $40.00 – What Nerve! reveals a hidden history of American figurative painting, sculpture and popular imagery. It documents and/or restages four installations, spaces or happenings, in Chicago, San Francisco, Detroit and Providence, which were crucial to the development of figurative art in the United States. Several of the better-known artists in What Nerve! have been the subject of significant exhibitions or publications, but this is the first major volume to focus on the broader impact of figurative art to connect artists and collectives from different generations and regions of the country. These are: from Chicago, the Hairy Who (James Falconer, Art Green, Gladys Nilsson, Jim Nutt, Suellen Rocca, Karl Wirsum); from California, Funk artists (Jeremy Anderson, Robert Arneson, Roy De Forest, Robert Hudson, Ken Price, Peter Saul, Peter Voulkos, William T. Wiley); from Detroit, Destroy All Monsters (Mike Kelley, Cary Loren, Niagara, Jim Shaw); and from Providence, Forcefield (Mat Brinkman, Jim Drain, Leif Goldberg, Ara Peterson). Created in collaboration with artists from these groups, the historical moments at the core of What Nerve! are linked by work from six artists who profoundly influenced or were influenced by the groups: William Copley, Jack Kirby, Elizabeth Murray, Gary Panter, Christina Ramberg and H.C. Westermann.

Edgewise: A Picture of Cookie Mueller by Chloé Griffin (Bbooks Verlag) $24.95 – Don’t miss author Chloé Griffin talking about this book here at Quimby’s 10/28, featuring a reading, multimedia presentation and conversation between the author and writer Britt Julious. Cookie Mueller was a firecracker, a cult figure, a wild child, a writer, a go-go dancer, a mother and a queer icon. She was an actress in John Waters films, then an art critic, writer of hilarious stories and a maven of New York’s downtown art world. This oral history includes interviews with the people who knew her, including John Waters, Mink Stole, Gary Indiana, Sharon Niesp, Max Mueller, Linda Yablonsky, Richard Hell, Amos Poe and Raymond Foye. The contributors take us from the late-1960s artist communes of Baltimore to 1970s Provincetown and New York, through 1980s Berlin and Positano. There’s artwork, photos and more.

Honoré de Balzac’s The Physiology of the Employee (Wakefield Press), With caricatures by  Louis Joseph Trimolet. $13.95 – Before there was Kafka, there was this text from 1841. It’s a field guide to the cogs and wheels of bureaucracy, with the various classifications of the office employee, from the Intern to the Clerk (all ten species, from Dapper to Bootlicker to Drudger) to Office Manager, Department Head, Office Boy and Pensioner. Sounds a little too familiar, doesn’t it? Might we suggest this as the perfect graduation gift for the fresh-faced and ambitious college graduate, about to enter the work force, to prepare them for the inevitable stifling disillusion with the world due to oppressive paperwork and soul killing office politics?
