Quotes and Reflections on Parkett's 33-Year Time Capsule

 

“A source of inspiration, reflection, revelation and delight … the multi-perspectival approach to writing; the puzzle-book spines; the finger on the pulse choice of artists; and the alluring program of editions: these are the ingredients that make Parkett one of the most influential forces in post war art…the most important artists of our time have created editions that represent the essence of their art or reveal an unexpected dimension..."

Iwona Blazwick, Director, Whitechapel Art Gallery, London

 

“...an engine of artistic thought and practice …… the diversity of works on view offer a sense of what artists can do with the challenge of how to distill their practices into a single, compact object or image … in doing so the show goes beyond traditional notions of space, scale and scope, in ways both subversive and poetic;

Philip Tinari, Director, Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing

 

“... a catalyst for invigorating change whilst always producing the harvest of the quiet eye”;

Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Co-Director, Serpentine Gallery, London

 

“PARKETT has taken the pulse of our time and built a “Schaulager” for it in book form: it has turned the present into a lasting phenomenon.

Stanislaus von Moos, Prof. emer., University of Zurich

 

“A Collection to turn your hands inside out and your mind upside down … And with its innumerable possibilities, a stimulating array of objects, but also of critical views and study around some of the most crucial and controversial aspects of contemporary artistic practice … a powerful mix of poetics and politics, aesthetics and critique...;

Helena Cabello, Head of the Parkett Collection and Professor, Faculty of Fine Arts, University UCLM, Cuenca, Spain. Member of the artists’ group Cabello/Carceller.

“A show of the work produced for a revolutionary magazine functions as a mini-museum of the recent time;

Financial Times, London.

 

“…Parkett’s editions highlight the Zeitgeist, the hopes and fears of artists in the globalized world, their questions of identity, of past and future, their zest for life, and their creation of new utopias..;

NZZ (Neue Zürcher Zeitung).

 

“If asked to choose a favorite among Parkett’s artist editions over the past 33 years, my definitive answer would be 'All of them.' The individual editions are wonderful, but collectively they form an extraordinary research collection that charts a vast array of changes that have swept through the art world since the 1980s. This includes not only the inevitable march of new and old ideas that always surrounds contemporary art, but also significant shifts in production: looking through the history of Parkett’s editions, one can study the impact of new technologies on artmaking, the increasing interconnectedness of artistic centers across the globe, and shifting ideas on the nature of the artistic multiple itself.Artists have always challenged the producers of multiples to move into new areas of production, but Parkett really is a special case... the Parkett editions influence artists in ways that stretch far beyond exhibition and publishing, and this influence will likely continue well into the future;

Glenn Phillips, Curator and Head of Modern & Contemporary Collections, Getty Research Institute, Santa Monica, California.
