Richard Serra Sculpture: Forty YearsRichard Serra Sculpture: Forty Years

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Text by Kynaston McShine, Lynne Cooke, John Rajchman, Benjamin Buchloh.

The art of Richard Serra is internationally admired for its powerful material qualities and its searching exploration of the relationship between the work, the viewer and the site. Indeed, since his emergence in the mid-1960s, Serra is widely understood to have radicalized and extended the very definition of sculpture. Quite simply the most complete view to date of the work of one of the most important artists of the last half-century, Richard Serra Sculpture: Forty Years offers a detailed visual presentation and documentation of Serra's entire career, from his early experiments with materials like rubber, neon and lead to the environmentally scaled steel works of recent years--including three monumental new sculptures created for The Museum of Modern Art's 2007 retrospective, for which this volume was produced. The book contains major scholarly essays on the artist's work by Benjamin Buchloh, Lynne Cooke and John Rajchman, as well as an interview with the artist by Kynaston McShine, the Museum's Chief Curator at Large.

Edvard Munch: The Modern Life of the SoulEdvard Munch: The Modern Life of the Soul

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Edited by Kynaston McShine. Essays by Patricia Berman, Reinhold Heller, Elizabeth Prelinger and Tina Yarborough.

In an exploration of modern existential experience unparalleled in the history of art, Edvard Munch, the internationally renowned Norwegian painter, printmaker and draftsman, sought to translate personal trauma into universal terms and in the process to comprehend the fundamental components of human existence: birth, love and death. Inspired by personal experience, as well as by the literary and philosophical culture of his time, Munch radically reconceived the given world as the product of his imagination. This book explores Munch's unique artistic achievement in all its richness and diversity, surveying his career in its entire developmental range from 1880 to 1944. The comprehensive volume features a lavish selection of color plates, an introduction by Kynaston McShine, Chief Curator at Large at The Museum of Modern Art, and essays by Patricia Berman, Reinhold Heller, Elizabeth Prelinger, and Tina Yarborough, as well as in-depth documentation of Munch's art and career. It will accompany the most extensive exhibition of Munch's art in America in three decades.

In Memory Of My FeelingsIn Memory Of My Feelings

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
By Frank O'Hara. Edited by Bill Berkson. Essay by Kynaston McShine.

Between 1952, when Frank O'Hara published his first collection of poems, and his death, in 1966, at the early age of 40, he became recognized as a quintessential American poet whose vernacular phrasing, both worldly and lyrical, told of the urban life of his generation. In addition to the contribution he made to American literature, O'Hara was a vital figure in the New York cultural scene and spent many years working at The Museum of Modern Art, where, having begun by taking a job selling postcards on the admissions desk, he ultimately became an associate curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture. And when he unexpectedly died, in an accident on the beach at Fire Island, New York, he was deeply mourned by the Museum's staff and by the New York art world.

The Museum As MuseThe Museum As Muse

Artists Reflect

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Essay by Kynaston McShine. Foreword by Glenn D Lowry.

Since public museums came into being in the late 18th century, artists have looked upon them with a mixture of reverence, complicity, suspicion, and disdain. In The Museum as Muse, artists of many persuasions speak their minds about museums, their functions and spaces, their practices and politics, and their relationship to the art they contain. More than 60 artists are represented by a wide range of works: photographs of museum patrons by Henri Cartier-Bresson and Elliot Erwitt; "personal museums" and "cabinets of curiosities" by Charles Wilson Peale, Marcel Duchamp, and Claes Oldenburg; fantasies of the destruction or transformation of museums by Hubert Robert, Ed Ruscha, and Christo; and more, including works created especially for this project by contemporary artists, and an anthology of statements and writings by artists about museums. This volume was published to accompany an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
