Theft Is Vision

By Bob Nickas.

Theft is Vision gathers essays and interviews from the past ten years by the influential New York critic and curator Bob Nickas, offering a personal, shoot-from-the-hip take on the American art scene. More of a fan than a theorist, Nickas views art through a focused, subcultural lens; he pursues overlooked figures such as graphic designers Art Chantry and Jamie Reid, post-punk legends The Fall, cult artists Cady Noland and Steven Parrino; collaborates on photo/text pieces with Trisha Donnelly and John Miller; and offers a fictional conversation between Andy Warhol and On Kawara. Interviews with Philip Taaffe and Jeff Wall reflect on the 80s, while those with Wolfgang Tillmans (not previously published) and Kelley Walker bring us into the present. Since 1985, Nickas has organized over 60 exhibitions for galleries and museums as an independent curator. As Curatorial Advisor at P.S. 1 from 2003-2007, he organized more than 20 exhibitions, including Stephen Shore: American Surfaces, Wolfgang Tillmans: Fredom From The Known, William Gedney-Christopher Wool: Into the Night, Peter Hujar and the Lee Lozano retrospective, Drawn From Life. Nickas's book, Live Free or Die: Collected Writings 1985-1999 was published by Les Presses du réel in 2000, and Collection Diary, an account of his year-long project to "play" at being a collector, was published by JRP|Ringier in 2004.

FROM THE BOOK
"When I was 14, Warhol was my art hero. My little town library had a copy of the Moderna Museet catalogue from his show in '68, and I would sneak behind the last row of bookshelves and pore over all the pictures. There were many from the sets of his movies, mainly of people in various states of undress in beds, in bathtubs, and on couches. There were pictures of the Velvet Underground and Nico, all icy cool. Everyone was either playing or waiting to play. Most importantly (as I would only understand much later), all the pictures were reproduced in black and white, even Warhol's paintings, which is fairly unusual for a museum catalogue. But here, artworks and people, objects and events, boredom and fascination, what was grimy and what was glamorous, all flowed together as fact. And, like so many pictures in black and white, even moving pictures, it seemed so much more believable. The first time I went to the Factory and met Warhol, I confessed that the catalogue had been my teenage introduction to art and sex, and that it had been downhill ever since. Years later, when I went back to the library with the intention of permanently borrowing the catalogue, it was gone…."

Bob Nickas, excerpted from the chapter "Everything I Know About Art I Learned From Andy Warhol and On Kawara," reproduced from Theft is Vision.
