On Sunday, February 15th from 4:00 – 6:00pm, please join Arcana: Books on the Arts in celebrating the publication of Mona Kuhn’s fifth book, Private. Kuhn has entered the heart of the American desert and returned with a sequence of pictures that is seductive, enigmatic and a little unsettling. Private proposes a world in which concrete reality and the imaginary are one. Plants and animals on the edge of survival, sun-drenched landscapes and wind-sculpted earth are intercut with a series of nudes that push Kuhn’s renowned sensitivity to human form into unexpected directions. The result is a book somewhere between the poetry of T.S. Eliot, the cinema of Robert Altman, and a lucid dream.

On Thursday, January 29th thru Sunday, February 1st, please join Arcana: Books on the Arts for the Printed Matter Los Angeles Art Book Fair!

Arcana will be downtown again this year with another enticing assortment of rarities including Pop and Conceptual artists’ books and catalogues, (maga)’zines, artworks + multiples, and an array of coveted posters, announcements and ephemera. It’s a unique opportunity to shop many of the exquisite, inspiring, and rarely-seen items from the Arcana: Books on the Arts hidden-recesses and flat files. See you there!

On Sunday, February 1st at 1:00pm, Arcana is hosting a book signing in their LA Art Book Fair booth with the immensely talented Ed Templeton for his fantastic new collection of photography: “Wayward Cognitions”.
“Wayward Cognitions” is a collection of photographs by Ed Templeton, chosen from his archives spanning twenty years. For this volume, Templeton selected images that do not fit into his usual manner of organizing by theme or subject. In past publications he has arranged his work in straightforward groupings such as Teenage Kissers, Teenage Smokers, or photographs shot from a moving car. In “Deformer”, he presented the photographs under the theme of suburbia. “Wayward Cognitions” represents the in-between moments that arise when shooting in the streets without theme or subject.
