"It is the 'thirst of the soul,' says Samuel Johnson, seeming to express its necessity; but its effects are merely negative or privative ones—curiosity 'rather frees us from uneasiness, then confers pleasure.'" -Brian Dillon

Curiosity: Art and the Pleasures of Knowing

Published by Hayward Publishing
Foreword by Roger Malbert. Text by Brian Dillon, Marina Warner.

Featured image, Philip Henry Gosse's "Illustration for Actinologia Britannia" (c.1858–1860), is reproduced from <I>Curiosity: Art and the Pleasures of Knowing</I>.Curiosity explores the notion of intellectual and creative curiosity. Compiled in association with author and U.K. editor of Cabinet magazine Brian Dillon, this richly illustrated book explores objects, artworks and narratives drawn from a variety of disciplines--scientific, occult, anthropological and aesthetic--taking as its guide a sensibility that developed in Europe in the early modern period and tracing it at work in disparate historical and contemporary contexts. Contributors to the volume include Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, Agency, Aura Satz, Aurélien Froment, Charles Le Brun, Corinne May Botz, Gunda Förster, Jeremy Millar, Laurent Grasso, Leopold and Rudolph Blaschka, Matt Mullican, Nicolaes Maes, Nina Katchadourian, Pablo Bronstein, Philip Henry Gosse, Robert Hooke, Roger Caillois, Tacita Dean, Thomas Grünfeld and Toril Johannessen.
