Warm Equations is a monograph that’s not a monograph: a study of an unstable, mercurial subject. Taking the paintings of New York-based Alan Reid as a cypher, the book pivots around the artist’s deferral of authorial closure, shifting the emphasis from his work to a multiplicity of voices and contributors. Rushing in from offstage, these voices pronounce their own concerns, setting textual tempos and rhythms that run amok non-hierarchically, catching on to or installing their own ambient metaphors.
With texts by Matthew Brannon, Corina Copp, Jill Gasparina, Kristen Kosmas, Ella Kruglyanskaya, Alan Reid, Lisa Robertson, Chris Sharp, Rachel Valinsky, and Jamieson Webster. Published by Edition Patrick Frey (Zurich).
