The Bob Mizer Foundation






         

Bob Mizer (1922–1992) was born in Hailey, ID. 

A trailblazing photographer, filmmaker, and publisher. At a time when homosexuality was criminalized in the United States Mizer’s photographs were subversive and inherently political. For his perspective on eroticized representation alone, Mizer is often ranked with Alfred Kinsey at the forefront of the sexual revolution.

Mizer's work has been exhibited widely in the US and internationally, including the landmark exhibition Bob Mizer & Tom of Finland at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles in 2014 and NYU’s Gray Gallery. In 2009, Taschen published Bob's World: The Life and Boys of AMG's Bob Mizer, a monograph accompanied by an oral history with contributing artists David Hockney, Jack Pierson and John Sonsini ,followed in 2016 by the extensive two-volume edition of Bob Mizer. AMG: 1000 Models.

Mizer's photos are in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.  The artist's archive is held with the The Bob Mizer Foundation in San Francisco, CA.

Clarity Haynes: Portals

ISBN-13: 9798218181932

Publisher: New Discretions

Year: 2024

Pages: 152









Text by Leah DeVun, Harry Dodge, Clarity Haynes, Jeanne Vaccaro

Bare torsos, totemic altars, evocations of childbirth and gender fluidity form the basis for Haynes’ visceral, carnal oil paintings

Willem de Kooning once stated that flesh was the reason oil paint was invented. To artist Clarity Haynes (b. 1971), the correlation between flesh and paint is alchemical. Portals is the first survey celebrating her paintings. The book explores her approach to nontraditional portraiture informed by feminism and gender interrogation, starting with her seminal The Breast/Chest Portrait Project, ongoing for the past 25 years; her series of trompe l’oeil Altars; and her new Crowning series. With her depictions of blood, Haynes revels in the abject and transcendent, in defiance of the taboo subject of childbirth in the history of art. Her queer activist point of view shifts the gaze to a decidedly visceral, sensual engagement with paint, challenging what bodies can be.














Tom Bianchi: 63 E 9TH STREET, NYC Polaroids 1975 - 1983

ISBN-13: 9788862086479

Publisher: Damiani Ltd

Year: 2019

Pages: 186








In 1975 Tom Bianchi moved from the American heartland to New York City, seeking a place in the cultural and sexual revolution that was unfolding among its blossoming young gay population. On summer weekends, Bianchi took his Polaroid SX – 70 camera to the Pines; those pictures became the 2013 book Fire Island Pines: Polaroids 1975–1983. Years later, we now get a first look at another extraordinary collection of Bianchi’s Polaroids, taken in his East 9th St apartment. Bianchi’s New York apartment was an intimate, track-lit den, a safe stage where he and his friends played out erotic night games. At once confronting limited notions of the self and reveling in the spirituality of physical bodies, Bianchi faithfully documented these sexual encounters, often turning the camera on himself. Playful, nostalgic and highly personal, New York City Polaroids is an essential companion book to Fire Island Pines and an important document of urban gay life.







Clarity Haynes: Altar-ed Bodies

Publisher: Heinzfeller Nileisist &
New Discretions

Year: 2022

Pages: 32






This chapbook was created to accompany Haynes' 2020 Altar-ed Bodies exhibition at Denny Dimin Gallery in New York. It features poems by Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Jibz Cameron, Shelley Marlow, and more, juxtaposed against color images of Haynes’ paintings.






Cary Leibowitz: Museum Show


ISBN-13: 978099164114

Publisher: The ‎Contemporary Jewish
Museum, San Francisco

Year: 2017

Pages: 224






Since 1986, New York-based contemporary artist Cary Leibowitz (b. 1963) has created comic, text-based works with an emphatically gay and often Jewish perspective that address issues of identity, kitsch, modernist critique, and queer politics. This catalog is the definitive resource on Leibowitz’s work and published in conjunction with Cary Leibowitz: Museum Show, the first comprehensive career survey and solo museum exhibition of Leibowitz’s work. This publication features nearly 300 full color illustrations; an exhibition history and bibliography; and contributions from Hilton Als, Antonio Sergio Bessa, David Bonetti, Fran Drescher, Glen Helfand, Anastasia James, Cary Leibowitz, Rhonda Leiberman, and Simon Lince.






Paul P: Last Flowers

ISBN-13: 9781467517263


Publisher: Downtown Art
Projects and INVISIBLE-EXPORTS

Year: 2012

Pages: 72







Text by Daniel Reich

From a sketchbook made by the Canadian artist in 2003, the book juxtaposes the drawings of young men’s faces culled from 1970s gay pornography with copies of Edouard Manet’s Last Flowers. Manet’s paintings depicted bouquets that friends brought to his Paris apartment while he was home bound during the last six months of his life. The faces “are caught in the moment of change, when they are successfully removed from their context, freed from degradation. I am searching for analogies and the touching of hands between the past and the present.”
