Parkett collaborates directly with compelling artists from around the world. Each collaboration features 3-4 essays by renowned authors on artists who create a signed edition especially for Parkett, which may take any form; from prints, objects and installations to unique works of art. With 101 books and 270 in-depth artists’ collaborations published, Parkett has evolved into a one-of-a-kind time capsule and archive of contemporary art. After the closing print issue 100/101 Parkett continues online with all editions and books, new projects, and exhibitions.
Collaborating artists include among others Ai Weiwei, El Anatsui, Laurie Anderson, Ed Atkins, Georg Baselitz, Matthew Barney, Louise Bourgeois, Cao Fei, Maurizio Cattelan, Francesco Clemente, Olafur Eliasson, Tracey Emin, Urs Fischer, Fischli/Weiss, Adrian Ghenie, Camille Henrot, Damien Hirst, Ilya Kabakov, Anish Kapoor, William Kentridge, Jeff Koons, Yayoi Kusama, Christian Marclay, Ernesto Neto, Beatriz Milhazes, Bruce Nauman, Meret Oppenheim, Gabriel Orozco, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Anri Sala, Cindy Sherman, Hito Steyerl, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Luc Tuymans, Danh Vo, Andy Warhol, Xu Zhen, Yang Fudong and many more.
Since its foundation in 1984, the thirty-three-year project has evolved both as a large library and a small museum of contemporary art. An ongoing travelling show of all works originated at MoMA, New York, and has been on view across Europe, the US and Asia, most recently in Beijing (UCCA), Seoul, Singapore and Taipei.
Parkett’s website features detailed content on all editions and books with selected texts and images, including artists sketches and letters. The recent 600 page catalogue raisonné fully documents all editions with color reproductions and essays by Deborah Wye, curator, MoMA, and other authors. The Exhibition Space in Zurich presents rotating, themed shows and events.
Parkett is based in Zurich with an additional office in New York. Editions and books are available online. Parkett’s editorial board consists of cofounders Bice Curiger, editor-in-chief, Dieter von Graffenried, publisher, and Jacqueline Burckhardt.

“The most important artists of our time have created editions for Parkett that represent the essence of their art or reveal an unexpected dimension.” Iwona Blazwick, Director, The Whitechapel Art Gallery, London
“An engine of artistic thought and practice.” Phil Tinari, Director, UCCA, Beijing
“If asked to choose a favorite among Parkett’s artist editions over the past 33 years, my definitive answer would be 'All of them.' The individual editions are wonderful, but collectively they form an extraordinary … collection that charts a vast array of changes that have swept through the art world since the 1980s … the Parkett editions influence artists in ways that stretch far beyond exhibition and publishing, and this influence will likely continue well into the future.”
Glenn Phillips, Curator and Head of Modern & Contemporary Collections, Getty Research Institute, Santa Monica, California
