About Joseph hart
Joseph Hart lives and works in New York City. His current works on paper focus on belief and value systems; specifically exchanges between hierarchies, economics, the politics of control, and personal priorities. The work also investigates how value can be illustrated (and manipulated) within museums and galleries through different modes of display. Presentation fixtures such as pedestals, frames and vitrines are reoccurring images in his artwork, providing formal structure while also serving as symbols of significance.
About Seems Books
Seems is an independent publisher of small-run art books based in New York. Our goal is to make original art accessible to everyone. We create books that start dialog and conversation, with a high priority placed on quality and content. We publish a hybrid of zines and monographs, with each book in a solo show format: one artist with a free reign throughout. The name Seems comes from the idea that art and design are not black and white, but gray; there is no absolute; therefore they demand dialog and debate. Seems has also participated in book exhibitions in South Africa, Italy, Canada, San Francisco, and New York.
