Consistently skating the line between I and we, Carter Mull’s Typist opens up a space for the artist to act as a producer of his own context. Playing with and blending the formats of artist book and artist monograph, Mull invited individuals and businesses that not only populate his personal and professional networks, but his quotidian routines, to author texts and advertisements through the lens of his own visual poetics. By engaging authors that range from critics and curators to the pizza place by his studio, Mull emphasizes the multiple cultures and economies that inform his work.
The publication, edited in collaboration with Alex Klein and designed with Harsh Patel, features contributions by Yasufumi Nakamori, Pizzanista, Blackwidow, Joanna Fiduccia, Michael Ned Holte, Daily Dose, Arcana Books, Aram Moshayedi, Fine Art Solutions, Eva Respini, The Icon, and Paul Sietsema. After perusing this eclectic compendium one can’t help but wonder what will come next from this post-medium practitioner.
