Organic Music Societies featuring works by Don and Moki Cherry. $20 496 pages, published by Blank Forms Books.
For a long time, Moki Cherry's artwork has been circulating among artists in whatever form they can find it...her visual art has remained somewhat obscure for decades to American audiences, but has had a real currency among young artists whenever they lay eyes on it. Most know her through collaborations she made with her musician husband Don Cherry for album covers. This book is an incredible (496 pages!!) exploration of the work the couple made together, which extends far beyond art made for records and into utopian multimedia productions. Full of historical context and beautifully reproduced imagery, this is a extremely welcome book that documents one of the most successful artistic collaborations of modern times.
