Tauba Auerbach, Folds; published by Bergen Kunsthall
In connection with the exhibition ‘Tetrachromat’ by Tauba Auerbach, Bergen Kunsthall and Sternberg Press are publishing a new book that presents Auerbach’s ongoing series of Fold paintings for the first time in book form. In these paintings Auerbach twists and folds the canvas before applying the paint. In its stretched form the flat canvas retains a trompe l’oeil rendering of its previous three-dimensional state. Transferred to the medium of the book, the paintings are presented here in a new and unexpected way alongside mathematical diagrams and three texts.

Flattery (Sincere?) Lightly Dusted With Irony—Sherrie Levine at the Whitney
For more than 30 years Ms. Levine has been slyly lifting images and forms from works by well-known Modernist artists and photographers, using them, her admirers maintain, in ways that undermine conventional notions of originality, artistic mastery and authorship. Her goal has apparently been to expose evils like the commodification or fetishization of the unique art object and to chip away at the myths of individual creativity that have historically served male artists and their markets.
