Brian Roettinger: Reproductions

The Thing Quarterly is an object based publication. Each issue is conceived of by a different contributor. The object is reproduced, wrapped, and shipped to the subscribers.
Artist and graphic designer Brian Roettinger‘s issue 25 for The Thing Quarterly, Reproductions, is a massive catalogue raisonnĂ© that collects, documents and indexes the majority of his design work produced to date. The works, which are reproduced in black and white from photocopies, are not presented chronologically, nor is it clear, upon first inspection, which project is which: an early version is shown, sometimes just a sketch, and in some cases, the final printer proofs. Unlike a traditional monograph, Roettinger’s reimagined interpretation is a testament to the process itself, and underscores the poles of his approach, which is both visibly chaotic and meticulously organized. Launch, January 30, 8.30pm, Ace Hotel, Los Angeles.
