The first collection of essays by one of America’s decisive and most lucid critical voices
Following on from the much-lauded Robert Storr: Interviews on Art, Heni presents the first in a two-volume publication featuring the collected writings of Robert Storr, one of the world’s leading art critics and curators.
Featuring the best of Storr’s criticism, reviews, essays and other writings from the 1980s to the early 2000s, this publication includes essays on artists such as Eva Hesse, Martin Puryear, Eric Fischl, Brice Marden, Arshile Gorky, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Bruce Nauman and Adrian Piper.
Expertly selected from Storr’s prolific and multifaceted output, and illustrated with 175 images accompanying the texts, Writings on Art is the definitive collection of the writing of one of America’s foremost critical voices. Storr’s first book of collected writings, this volume is a must-read for curators and students, artists, exhibition-goers and all those interested in the art and culture of today.
