Synopsis: A limited-edition artist's book by one of the most respected indie-underground cultural icons of our time. An artist's book by visual artist and legendary indie rocker Kim Gordon, this volume is an intoxicating look into Gordon's dreamy visual world. Watercolors, paintings, photographs, and written word combine to create a portrait of an artist's work inspired by popular culture. The first 3,000 copies include a beautifully printed, limited-edition signed print by Gordon. This luxurious yet affordable package combines layers of media to create an extension of the artist's portfolio, with written contributions by artist Jutta Koether and writer Hilton Als. "Kim Gordon: Performing/Guzzling" is the first in a series of books by Rizzoli and Nieves that consists of beautifully designed books by artists, photographers, and designers who have substantially contributed to the texture of artistic culture. Each project will be an extension of the artist's portfolio.
Review: "For decades now, Sonic Youth's stalwart bassist-guitarist Kim Gordon has been a beacon of cool, inspiring generations of girls to try to make their own noise. With "Performing/Guzzling", a sumptious art book released by Rizzoli and Nieves, Gordon is now inspiring these same girls to make art." "NYLON"""Performing/Guzzling" functions more as a hard bound artist journal than a monograph filled with page after page of Gordon's ghost like watercolors, text paintings, lyrics/poetry, and photography. The watercolor works are by far the most accomplished, inspired by on-stage performances where the faces in the audience become a dreamy and ethereal blur of color... "Performing/Guzzling" is a must have book for both artist book enthusiasts and Sonic Youth fans alike!" "Beautiful/Decay"
