Rock ‘n’ Roll Shrink

Rock ‘n’ Roll Shrink

Glenn Horowitz Bookseller will host Peter Dayton’s rocknrollshrink record release on September 2, 2012 6-8pm, concurrent with a preview of the exhibition Andy Warhol: Album Covers.

rocknrollshrink is a compilation of Peter Dayton’s ongoing psychological exploration of multigenerational recollections related to the democratic institution of rock and roll.  In the grooves of this clear vinyl 12'' 45rpm is an edited archive of recordings from Dayton’s participatory performances wherein the artist assumes the role of an unlicensed psychiatrist and explores the impact of music on his patients’ psyche and personal past. The artist recorded these conversations at venues such as fordPROJECT, GREY AREA JMC@Glenn Horowitz Bookseller, where performances occurred spontaneously throughout the exhibitions with resulting testimonials such as: “Rock and Roll destroyed my life,” John, 43 years old and “My Uncle gave me Blonde on Blonde when I was eight…so there ya go,” Katrina, age unknown, “Rock and Roll is about fucking, that’s what it means” Eric 51 years old.

Founder of the seminal 70’s punk band La Peste, Peter Dayton has explored the intersection between visual art and rock music for decades.  Years in the making, this vinyl culmination of rocknrollshrink is a mashup of art object, performance and an archive of a punk rock anthropological experiment.

The 12” 45rpm with artist designed cover and label is available in an edition of 150. The record includes a liner note insert with the names of patients on the album. For those who don’t own a record player, an mp3 will be available for download at www.6decadesbooks.com

ANDY WARHOL: ALBUM COVERS, Exhibition Preview
Everyone who knows anything about Andy Warhol is aware he began as a designer/illustrator, but lesser known is the fact that his success as an illustrator began when his arrival in New York City overlapped with the marketing of the long play record in 1949. This complete collection, 60 in total, ranges from the Stone’s ubiquitous Sticky Fingers zipper cover, to the full page blotted line drawings found in Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake Acts I & II. A rare opportunity to view this collection in full, this exhibition will preview on September 2nd, 6-8pm and run through September 24.

Ralph Rucci Book Signing at Glenn Horowitz Bookseller, East Hampton, July 28, 5-7pm

Ralph Rucci Book Signing at Glenn Horowitz Bookseller, East Hampton, July 28, 5-7pm

Published by Bauer & Dean, Autobiography of a Fashion Designer: Ralph Rucci, a lavishly illustrated artist book issued in a limited edition, will be exclusively distributed on the East End of Long Island this season by Glenn Horowitz Bookseller.

Meet the designer at our book signing and reception on July 28, 5-7pm.

This personal and colorful documentation of Rucci’s fascinating life offers an intimate self-portrait of an American fashion icon. Through a wealth of stunning images, it delves deeply into both his private and public worlds. His eclectic and beautiful home is revealed through a compelling series of closely-cropped photographs, such as the layers of rich cashmere, silk, and leather in his closet; the thoughtfully positioned objets d’art throughout the rooms; and his extensive book collection – on muses from Francisco Goya to Cristóbal Balenciaga – which is shelved, stacked, or placed at the foot of his bed.

The images of Rucci’s design processes are equally captivating – if not more so. Saturated bolts of fabric, spools of thread, and racks of dress patterns are presented alongside journals rich with source material. No less interesting are the photographs of his file cabinets, which are filled with folders headed with such intriguing titles as “Confetti Holiday 1987, 88.” Behind-the-scenes pictures of model fittings, photo shoots, and runway stagings comprise the finale of this luxurious book, and where Rucci’s creative genius is brilliantly displayed through a unique visual portfolio of his numerous award-winning designs.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Rucci earned a philosophy degree at Temple University, after which he entered the fashion business, receiving his initial training under Halston and a Balenciaga patternmaker. He held his first formal show in 1981, and launched his own eponymous house, Chado: Ralph Rucci, in 1996. In 2002, Rucci was invited by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture to show in Paris —the first American-based designer to ever receive the honor — and last fall he received his “Fashion Walk of Fame” plaque on Seventh Avenue in Manhattan. In April, he was the keynote speaker at the seventh annual Design Leadership Summit in Marrakech.
