Interviews on Art

By Robert Storr

Edited with interview by Francesca Pietropaolo.

Over the past three decades, Robert Storr has set the critical and curatorial standard for American art

As a museum curator, academic, editor and writer, Robert Storr has come into contact with the most important artists of our era. Over the years he has amassed a major body of interviews, collected here for the first time in a single volume. Interviews on Art includes over 60 fully illustrated discussions, conducted between 1981 and 2016, with some of the most renowned names in the art world.

Interviewees represented in this book include Gerhard Richter, Jeff Koons, Richard Serra, Gabriel Orozco, Elizabeth Murray, Harald Szeemann and Mike Kelley (among many others), and each text is accompanied by relevant works and previously unpublished photographs of the artists. A number of the interviews are unpublished or appear in full for the first time, including those with Louise Bourgeois, Robert Gober, Buckmister Fuller, Bruce Nauman, Yvonne Rainer and Kara Walker.

Refreshingly, Storr is as reflexive about his own work as a critic as he is about the artistic works up for discussion. The book is introduced with a conversation between Storr and curator and art historian Francesca Pietropaolo. The two carry on a wide-ranging discussion in which they dissect the interview as a medium: exploring the ethics involved, various techniques and approaches as well as the limitations and difficulties of the process.

Robert Storr (born 1949) is a renowned American art critic, curator and artist. Trained as a painter, he served as Curator and then Senior Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art for more than a decade. Equally distinguished as an academic, Storr led the Yale University School of Art as Dean from 2006 to 2016.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The Paris Review

The interviews span generations, media, and different aesthetic and conceptual inclinations, providing insight into the thinking, methods, achievements, and trajectories of some of the most influential artists of our time...

The San Francisco Chronicle

Susan Faust

It can be a bracing intellectual experience to listen in, when a top curator talks at length with an accomplished, committed artist. This heavy tome offers 51 such conversations, recorded over the past 35 years by Storr...

Publishers Weekly

Art critic and curator Robert Storr probes the creative genius and artistic achievements of 51 art world insiders in this illuminating collection of interviews.

Shelf Awareness

Francesca Pietropaolo

While the conversations occasionally lean toward the academic, they are never dull or pedantic. The interviews wouldn't be as rich as they are if it weren't for Storr. Trained as an artist, he has the ability to engage intimately with his subjects in a way that feels like a dialogue between peers.

The perfect holiday gift for artists, curators and art historians

“For me, the key element when interviewing artists, or anybody, is that you want to know what they think and how they think. A good interview with someone results from drawing them out, making them feel safe to say what is on their mind. Artists can be expected not to tell you where their ideas come from. Richard Serra famously told Chuck Close once that an artist is only as good as the obscurity of his sources. The point is that there are subjects that the artists don’t want to talk about, that you’re almost never going to get them to discuss, and you don’t want to put them in a situation where you effectively say, ‘Got you!’ I’ve prepared the way for Gerhard Richter and other artists to say things that I didn’t expect they would say, but it wasn’t me versus them in a sort of prosecutorial relationship. It was me and them as two people with a common interest—art, generally, their work, specifically—trying to account for the texture of it and the reasons for it. So my general approach is not to cross-examine artists, but to ask real questions to which I would like to have answers.” – Robert Storr, Interviews on Art, 900 pages of the best there is, published by Heni. continue to blog
