Dave Hickey Talk & Signing at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel

Thursday, May 12 at 7PM, ARTBOOK @ Hauser Wirth & Schimmel and The University of Chicago Press present Dave Hickey, speaking on his new book, 25 Women: Essays on Their Art. Introduction by Dr. Julia Friedman. Book signing to follow.

Dave Hickey Talk & Signing at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel

Calloused, insightful, cantankerous or illuminating Dave Hickey’s writing does nothing if not illicit a visceral response. On the heels of his recently published collection of essays 25 Women: Essays on Their Art and to celebrate the landmark exhibition Revolution in the Making: Abstract Sculpture By Women 1947–2016 at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel, ARTBOOK @ Hauser Wirth & Schimmel is pleased to welcome Dave Hickey and Dr. Julia Friedman for a talk and book signing.

More than a collection of essays, 25 Women constitutes a body of work that reflects Hickey’s deep and prolonged engagement with influential contemporary artists including Roni Horn, Mary Heilmann and Revolution in the Making artist Lynda Benglis. With his trademark wit and raucous eloquence, Hickey’s writing cuts to the heart of deciphering the creative process, questioning institutional accountability and criticism’s role in generating thought provoking discussion through controversy.

“…I am an adept of difficulty,” Hickey writes in his introduction. “I love the mystery of gazing across the craquelure of gender gaps that still deploy themselves like canyons across our provisional utopia.” 25 Women: Essays on Their Art crystalizes that gaze into a shimmering collection of writing by a critic who has spent his 50-year career in constant conversation with women.

DAVE HICKEY is a distinguished American art and cultural critic and the author of Dragon: Four Essays on Beauty (1993), Air Guitar (1997), and Pirates and Farmers (2014) and 25 Women: Essays on Their Art (2016). He has served as executive editor of Art In America, a contributing editor for the Village Voice and as the arts editor of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Hickey was Professor of English at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, and Distinguished Professor of Criticism for the MFA Program in the Department of Art & Art History at the University of New Mexico.

JULIA FRIEDMAN is a Russian-born art historian, writer, and curator. Her book Beyond Symbolism and Surrealism: Alexei Remizov’s Synthetic Art was published by Northwestern University Press in 2010. She recently compiled two collections of Dave Hickey’s digital writing, Dust Bunnies: Dave Hickey’s Online Aphorisms June 2014-March 2015 (2016) and Wasted Words: The Essential Dave Hickey Online Compilation (2016), both from PCP Press.
