No money is made by any organization through the Art Book Swap, and Regency, NADA and MoMA donate their time, efforts and labor to the event for the benefit and enjoyment of the art-loving public. All remaining books are donated to the Prison Readers Encouragement Project for placement in prison libraries in the New York City region.

Christian Schwarzwald @ Derek Eller Gallery
January 8 - February 13, 2010
Berlin based artist Christian Schwarzwald's latest show at Derek Eller's Gallery consists of a series of large works on paper which are mounted on partially painted gallery walls, challenging the viewer's experience of pictorial space. Aptly named Boxed, the exhibition toys with the notions of space, of negotiations between two-dimensional planar scapes and three-dimensional interventions. This quality is further enhanced by Schwarzwald's repeated use of the box form which functions both as a space-defining device and as a kind of presentation vitrine for the drawings within, giving new meaning to the ideas of enclosure and of being boxed-in.
Christian has had recent solo exhibitions at Galerie Krinzinger in Vienna and Nina Menocal Gallery in Mexico City, and has also been featured in group shows at Bonner Kunstverein and Kunsthalle Düsseldorf. His drawings are in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, New York.

bitforms gallery is pleased to announce a fourth solo exhibition with New York based Daniel Rozin. Known for his longstanding investigation of image creation – be it in response to woven fabric, stone mosaics or today’s pixel – Rozin studies the very nature of modern structure. Taking its name from the Cartesian axes that organize a picture plane, the current exhibit features three sculptures: Rust Mirror (2010), X by Y (2010) and Mirrors Mirror (2008). -Gallery Press Release

New York City, January 8th, 2009 – For the first time in NYC, artist C. Finley will be wallpapering two dumpsters outside of the New Museum on Bowery and Stanton from 3-6pm. The Wallpapered Dumpster Project is an inquiry into urban waste, free art, and notions of femininity, beauty and domesticity. Inspired by free and accessible art the artist states, “ I like to think of these interventions as polite graffiti.” This ongoing series of urban interventions will continue in Los Angeles and 10 select cities in Europe through 2010. Previous dumpsters have appeared in Rome and around Los Angeles and have remained wallpapered for up to a year, depending on use and environmental factors.
If you study a great work of art, you'll probably find the artist was a kind of genius. And geniuses are different than you and me. So let's have no talk of temperamental, self absorbed and petulant babies. Being a good artist is the toughest job you could pick, and you have to be a little nuts to take it on. I love them all... Charles Saatchi
