The book was published on the occasion of SFMOMA’s 2016 expansion. Contributors include Robert Adams, Jill Dawsey, Gary Garrels, Henry Urbach, Rudolf Frieling and more. Green contributed an essay on Julie Mehretu’s Stadia I (2014).
Proving Ground. by David Maisel. Published in 2020 (Radius). An unsettling encounter with one of the most secretive of American military zones, Proving Ground is California-based photographer David Maisel’s investigation of Dugway Proving Ground, a classified site covering nearly 800,000 acres in a remote region of Utah’s Great Salt Lake Desert.
From its inception during World War II to the present, Dugway’s primary mission has been to develop and test chemical and biological weaponry and defense programs. After more than a decade of inquiry, Maisel was granted rare access to photograph the terrain, testing facilities and other aspects of this deliberately obscured region of the American atlas. Comprising aerial and on-site photos made at Dugway, this body of work explores questions surrounding military power, national security and land use, as well as the limits of technology and human endeavor. The book features essays by William Fox, Geoff Manaugh and Green.
Anne Appleby: We Sit Together the Mountain and Me (forthcoming, allegedly). The book is a catalogue of a 2017-18 exhibition of the same title of Anne Appleby’s paintings and video work at the Tacoma Art Museum. The catalogue will feature essays by Rock Hushka, Grace Kook Anderson and Green. Hear Appleby discuss the work and the exhibition on The Modern Art Notes Podcast.
