The Orange County Museum of Art (OCMA) has announced the relaunch of the museum’s acclaimed publishing program. OCMA Books publishes innovative, affordable and limited-edition books, publications and exhibition catalogues that champion the most pioneering artists and thinkers of the present day.

OCMA will start with Why Art Matters: The Bearable Lightness of Being, a book of art and thought which delves deep into the human condition through an in-depth engagement with artworks and artists. The book is divided into short chapters addressing essential, meaningful subjects such as perseverance, the unknown, imperfection and ritual, drawing on a range of artworks to map out different ways to approach the world, while offering insight into how we can bring our best selves to our life and our daily interactions.
