For Immediate Release
On Tuesday, December 13, 2005, Artists Space and Pointed Leaf Press will celebrate the publication of Earthling by Warren Neidich with a book signing by the author and the launch of Artbrain.org #3 curated by Warren Neidich and Nathalie Anglès.
The event will be held at Artists Space at 35 Greene Street in SoHo from 6 to 9 pm and is free and open to the public.
Earthling ( 84 pages, hardcover, $50, www.pointedleafpress.com ) presents Neidich's most recent body of work with an interview by Hans Ulrich Obrist and an essay by Barry Schwabsky. Often taken in cafés and using found newspapers and magazines, which the artist has altered, the photographs are eerie, humorous and taken straight from today's headlines. Photographs from the book are available through Michael Steinberg Fine Arts in New York City.

Titles include Over the Top: Helena Rubinstein, Extraordinary Style, Beauty, Art, Fashion, and Design; The Complete Kagan, Vladimir Kagan: A Lifetime of Avant-Garde Design; and Class Act: William Haines---Legendary Hollywood Decorator. Artbrain.org#3 was created in 2000 by co-founders Warren Neidich and Nathalie Anglès, as a site for works of visual art, film, writing, architecture whose ideas are in the territory of Neuroscience.

After completing the curatorial internship at the Ecole du Magasin, CNAC Grenoble she went on to work on curatorial projects at Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts and the Union Centrale des Arts Decoratifs, Paris before moving to New York in 2000.
