"Royal Flush" accompanies the first, solo-museum exhibition to focus on Nina Chanel Abney's paintings since 2007.

The in-depth monograph includes over 150 illustrations, a preface by Richard J. Powell, texts by Natalie Y. Moore and exhibition curator Marshall N. Price, and an interview with the artist by Jamillah James.

Design + Concept

Using the manuscript as a springboard, this design attempts to convey a sense of "organized chaos" through riots of bold color and geometric forms, an overall grid structure that underpins the powerful imagery of Abney's paintings, and typographic and color treatments indexically
linking to the histories of art and design.

Uneasy Laughter

Pop América (View)

This 216-page hardcover scholarly catalogue explores Pop art as a hemispheric phenomenon and offers a radical new view onto the postwar "American way of life" and Pop's presumed political neutrality. 

Published by the Nasher Museum of Art.

On the Cover

Felipe Ehrenberg (1943–2017) is perhaps Mexico's most important experimental artist. For over 50 years Ehrenberg tenaciously and ingeniously contributed to the expansion of art and the territory it consumed. His wide-ranging body of work includes pop and conceptual art, painting, drawing, book-objects, performance, installation, theory, and other indescribable hybrids. Ehrenberg's practice was unapologetically unorthodox and a point of reference for anyone interested in the cultural transformations of Mexico since the 1960s.

His best-known work crosses cultural boundaries and explores the inherent power of language. In Ehrenberg's series of "cajas," or boxes, he utilizes shifting perspectives to create unsettling feelings in the viewer and provoke the idea of power and positioning. Tiny trinkets, like marbles, are often hidden inside the cajas rendering the art object a literal container of images. His work is humble in material and rich in concept. It exhibits Pop motifs like bright colors, appropriated and mechanically-produced imagery, and repetition of form all while remaining characteristically the work of Ehrenberg. 

Similarly, the catalogue employs such design devices as figure-ground relationships and textual treatments to call attention to the long and troubled history of the United States presumed ownership of "America" and Pop art.
