Publishing exhibition catalogues is an important element of support provided by the Fellows of Contemporary Art for emerging and mid-career California artists. FOCA has collaborated with curators, artists and museums to ensure the highest quality of more than thirty-five catalogs. These have included catalogs for many group shows and individual artists, such as Ed Moses, Vija Celmins, Lita Albuquerque, Eleanor Antin, Michael Brewster, Tom Knechtel and George Stone.
FOCA publications are sold in museums and bookstores nationwide and are highly respected by curators, artists, critics, and collectors. Also, FOCA donates a portion of its publications to underserved libraries and schools around the U.S. The name of each FOCA member appears in the exhibition publications, in order to acknowledge their combined efforts and philanthropy.
