Beautiful catalogue of Jennifer Bartlett's Rhapsody series, with notes by the artist and an introduction by Roberta Smith ("Rhapsody: The Story of the Mind in Action"). Rhapsody is as numinous as it is numerous, "a visual event that unfolds and refolds in real time, real space, and above all, real thought." Bartlett's grid-backed, colorful abstraction is driven by an implicit effort to explain itself: we don't see so much as watch the work, reading between the lines, learning endlessness also means labour, (mis-)translation, and a sense of an ending. Rhapsody was Bartlett's final exhibition, rigorously immortalized on the page: over 600 colour plates, a full exhibition history, and thorough work descriptions professionally catalogue the powerful series as much as Smith's introduction conceptualizes it, determining Rhapsody as something to think about as much as look at.
