In this book of interviews, Heidi Zuckerman, CEO and Director of the Aspen Art Museum, opens up the studios and practices of more than thirty prominent contemporary artists through personal and illuminating conversations.
A perceptive, sensitive interviewer, Zuckerman offers the reader refreshing insights and access to some of the most engaging artists making work this decade. Before arriving in Aspen in 2005, Zuckerman previously worked as a curator at the University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, and the Jewish Museum, New York. In Aspen, Zuckerman has transformed the Aspen Art Museum into a pioneering, risk-taking institution and made a name for herself as one of the leading museum directors in the US.
