10 Art Books to Add to Your Shelf This December

Sonya Clark’s latest catalogue, the case for decolonizing drag, Coco Fusco speaks truth to power, a memoir of Brooklyn’s underground performance scene, and more.

By Hrag Vartanian, Lakshmi Rivera Amin, Hakim Bishara and Natalie Haddad 

If you’re shamefully counting the titles you didn’t get around to reading this year, know that you are not alone. This month, we’d like to recommend 10 art books to keep you company as you navigate the busy season and provide you with a bit of respite from the chaos December often brings. Our editors reflect on the indefatigable Coco Fusco’s art on the occasion of her latest catalogue, the late Ray Johnson and his queer correspondence art, the commercialization of drag and how to fight against it, and other new books that remind us of art’s potential to illuminate the fractures in our world. —Lakshmi Rivera Amin, Editorial Coordinator

Sonya Clark: We Are Each Other

This is the catalogue for Clark’s touring exhibition, which is currently at Atlanta’s High Museum before landing at Manhattan’s Museum of Arts and Design this March, and I challenge you not to be wowed by an artist who transforms the familiar into something new and unexpected. —HV
