Art Catalogues is an independent art bookstore, operating under the umbrella of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). In business since 1977, it specializes in current and out-of-print museum and gallery exhibition catalogues and books on the subjects of modern art, architecture and photography. Our specific interests enable us to acquire a very large and comprehensive inventory in these areas. New titles arrive daily, and we encourage your calls and e-mails, as there is much unlisted material. Additionally, we can supply lists for specific artists as well as most subjects.
Dagny Corcoran is the founding proprietor of Art Catalogues. One of the first booksellers to focus primarily on museum and gallery exhibition catalogues, Corcoran has amassed an unparalleled collection over the years. Profoundly interested in the artists and the cultural history of the 1960s and 1970s, she tends to collect in that direction, although her shop canvasses the entire movement of 20th- and 21st-century modern art.
Clifford Eberly is the director of Art Catalogues. Clifford brings over 10 years of bookstore experience to Art Catalogues. His areas of expertise include Contemporary Art, Sculpture and Installation based disciplines. Since moving to Los Angeles in 2012, Eberly has immersed himself in the diverse visual and performing arts communities of Los Angeles while gaining further knowledge of the quickly expanding cultural landscape of Southern California.
Art Catalogues at LACMA is located in the David Bohnett Foundation Atrium of the Ahmanson Building, just off the BP Grand Entrance. Art Catalogues also hosts a changing program of innovative exhibitions and artists' talks -- go here to find out about upcoming events at Art Catalogues Bookstore.
