Welcome to the book launch of JUDITH BERNSTEIN RISING!
Kunsthall Stavanger is proud to release the first catalogue of the work of New York-based feminist artist Judith Bernstein. The publication includes an extensive timeline of the artist’s works, installation views of the exhibition at Kunsthall Stavanger, as well as a selection of writing by individuals with distinct and varying relationships to Bernstein’s work including Maurizio Cattelan, Johanna Fateman, and Thomas Micchelli. Each offers a different entry point to the artist’s work, and elucidates an aspect of her life and career. The catalogue is co-published by Mousse Publishing, and designed by Bastion – Agency Studio Lab.
Judith Bernstein will join the event via Skype from New York to say hello, briefly discuss her work, and answer any questions from the audience. The discussion will be held in English.
The catalogue will be on sale during the event at a special 20% discount.
