Published on the occasion of Nora Schultz's exhibition parrottree -- building for bigger than real, January 12 – February 23, 2014. It was Schultz's first solo museum show in the US and the first show curated at the Renaissance Society by new Chief Curator and Executive Director, Solveig Øvstebø.
Nora Schultz: Parrottree is a unique and ambitious hybrid between exhibition catalogue and artist’s book. Along with photo documentation of the Renaissance Society installation and an essay by the curator Solveig Øvstebø, the publication also includes The Parrot Magazine by Nora Schultz, a 64-page magazine "made by parrots for parrots and for all birds that need to integrate into human society under aggravated circumstances." Additionally, experimental writing pieces by Keren Cytter and Seth Price, and a visual art project by John Kelsey were all commissioned specifically for this book.
