Greetings from Front Forty Press,

Signs of the Apocalypse / Rapture is finally here!

We’ve been busy working on this book for over two years and it is finally here and ready to ship. Signs of the Apocalypse/Rapture is a curatorial look at rapturous and apocalyptic art, thought, and audio. Featuring the work of over 60 artists, 13 scholars/experts, and 21 audio artists, this beautiful tome is definitely one for your collection.

Artists presented include well respected icons such as Bill Viola, Ed Ruscha, Richard Misrach, Fred Tomaselli, Julie Mehretu, the Starn twins, Zhang Huan, Will Cotton, Julie Heffernan, Desiree Dolron, Andrew Schoultz, Emilio Perez, Till Gerhard, Ellen Kooi, Simmons and Burke, Robert Ryman, Christopher Bucklow and many more.

Essays, interviews, and one poem introduce the books thesis relative to the spiritual, environmental, political, and sociological implications of the subject matter.

Two full-length audio discs contained in the book provide a selection of avant guard audio in twenty-one tracks. The audio artists include bands such as Sonic Youth, OM, SunnO))), Yakuza, Zelienople, Death Unit, Jana Hunter, Matteah Baim, and others.

Look for the feature exhibition of select visual art and sound from Signs of the Apocalypse/Rapture scheduled for Summer 2009 at the Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago as well!
