From our base in New York, we produce, publish, and present a program of photography projects, locally and internationally.
Architecture Words is a series of texts and important essays on architecture written by architects, critics and scholars. Like many aspects of everyday life, contemporary architectural culture is dominated by an endless production and consumption of images, graphics and information. Rather than mirror this larger force, this series of small books seeks to deflect it by means of direct language, concise editing and beautiful, legible graphic design.
"Between Artists" is an ongoing series of books edited by Alejandro Cesarco and originally published by A.R.T. Press. They are based on artist to artist conversations. The conversation format permits a thorough and at the same time informal investigation of the artists’ practice and the larger social issues that inform it. By virtue of their clarity, personal focus, affordability, and innovative method of distribution, these books make possible the presentation of contemporary artists and their work to a wide readership. Since the first "Between Artists" books were released in 2005, they have gained a cult following, and a number of them have since become out of print.
The bilingual Conversaciones/Conversations series, launched by the Fundación Cisneros/Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros in 2010, is dedicated to preserving firsthand accounts from leading Latin American artists and intellectuals.
Responding to the urgent need to compile primary-sourced information on the historical and contemporary conditions in Latin American art, this illustrated series of reading books features dynamic, in-depth dialogue between artists and their interlocutors.
The Conversaciones/Conversations e-book series—a joint collaboration between CPPC and MAPP Editions, UK—disseminates these important publications in a digital format.
