9780500970539: Art Studio America: Contemporary Artist Spaces

Large-format and illustrated with original photography: a fresh look at the current scene for art lovers and a unique introduction to the art world for the novice

For centuries, America's permutations of climate and landscape and its tantalizing suggestion of unlimited possibilities have inspired some of history's greatest minds to embark on both literal and imaginary journeys of exploration, none more so than its visual artists. Contrasting intimate visits to artists' studios with explorations of the country's sweeping landscapes of light and form that have inspired artists since the Luminists and the Hudson River School, here is a privileged look at the dreams, ideas, and thoughts of more than one hundred American artists who are active today.

From established figures such as Marina Abramovic, John Baldessari, Chris Burden, Francesco Clemente Chuck Close, John Currin, Rachel Feinstein, Richard Prince, Robert Irwin, Kiki Smith, Bill Viola, and Lawrence Weiner to members of the new guard, including Diana Al-Hadid, Tauba Auerbach, Mark Bradford, Theaster Gates, Rashid Johnson, and Sterling Ruby, this profusely and beautifully illustrated journey through artists' studios provides an unprecedented look into the workings of one of the world's largest artistic communities.

From New York's skyline to Southern California's sunny boardwalks, Art Studio America will embolden readers the chance to embark on transformative journeys of their own.

The book includes essays by Robert Storr, Mark Godfrey, and Ben Genocchio. 597 illustrations

Book Description Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Contrasting intimate visits to artist s studios, intended to evoke the particular elements of their own interior landscapes, with explorations of the USA s sweeping landscapes of light and form, which have inspired artists since the Luminists and the landscape specialists of the Hudson River School, Art Studio America provides a privileged look at the dreams, ideas and thoughts of 115 artists who are active today.
