Doyle Lane: Weed Pots is an important new catalogue published on occasion of the eponymous exhibition curated by Ricky Swallow at David Kordansky Gallery, Los Angeles, on view July 22 – August 29, 2020. The exhibition and corresponding publication highlight Lane's iconic ceramic Weed Pots, a form that the artist returned to time and again over the course of two decades. The catalogue opens with an essay by Swallow that underscores the significance of this form to Lane’s practice and career, followed by text by ceramicist Lee Whitten in response to production images of Lane in his El Sereno studio by photographer Ben Serar and a conversation between Dale Brockman Davis and Stanley C. Wilson on their relationship and exhibition history with the late artist. The publication also includes important, previously unpublished archival material related to the production, sale, and presentation of Lane's work along with vivid full-color, to-scale reproductions of each of the sixty pots featured in the exhibition, and installation photography from the 2020 show. Doyle Lane: Weed Pots is designed by 12:01—Office of Hassan Rahim, New York.
