Exhibition catalogue / monograph published in conjunction with show held September 14, 2019 - January 5, 2020. "This monograph charts the evolution of the palm tree in Charles Gaines's work from the 1980s to the present. In a new text, David Platzker explores the cultural and art historical contexts of the series, particularly the recent 'Numbers and Trees' works that take palm trees as their subject. Also featured is a conversation between Gaines and Cherise Smith, which delves into the conceptual underpinnings of the artist's work. Published alongside Gaine's 1919-20 exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles, this publication also dicuments and discusses other works from the artist's decades-long career, including the 'Manifestos' series (2008-18), exploring the threads that unite various parts of his practice." --publisher's statement.
