Tauba Auerbach (b. 1981, San Francisco) studies the boundaries of perception through an art and design practice grounded in math, science, and craft. Published in conjunction with the first major survey of the artist’s work, this volume, designed by Auerbach in collaboration with David Reinfurt, spans sixteen years of their career, highlighting their interest in concepts such as duality, interconnectedness, rhythm, and form, and the way these ideas intersect with questions about the structure of the universe.

Encapsulating Auerbach’s longstanding consideration of symmetry, texture, and notions of quantum scale and the behavior of matter, the subtitle S v Z offers a framework for this volume’s typeface, design, and structure. Images of more than 130 drawings, prints, paintings, and sculptures created between 2004 and 2020 are mirrored and contextualized by a comprehensive selection of related reference images, illuminating their multifaceted practice as never before. Essays by Joseph Becker, Jenny Gheith, and Linda Dalrymple Henderson provide further context for the work.

Published in association with D.A.P./Distributed Art Publishers on the occasion of the exhibition Tauba Auerbach ― S v Z, organized by Joseph Becker and Jenny Gheith for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
