    James Goggin and Scott Reinhard: Amalia Pica Catalogue

Graphic Design: James Goggin and Scott Reinhard produce a beautiful catalogue for Amalia Pica

Posted by James Cartwright,

I’m going to let you in on a bit of a secret; most artist books are incredibly tedious. For one reason or another artists and designers can’t seem to get their act together to collaborate on printed works that are formally beautiful and rigorously conceptually communicative. Either the artist is too precious, the designer too zealous or the whole thing gets lost in a web of conceptual nonsense that renders the reading experience hopeless. And so good ones don’t come along very often.

But when they do it is EXTRA-special, as in the case of James Goggin and Scott Reinhard’s exhibition catalogue for the Argentinian artist Amalia Pica. The book takes the form of a retrospective, looking back at a Amalia’s body of work over the past decade and exploring recurring themes within her practise. There’s considered imagery of Amalia’s work as well as an actual discussion of why it’s so tough to commit your work to paper and produce a book. Told you so…
