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, articles and essays—from the 1980s to the mid-2000s, this publication includes texts on a wide range of artists such as Jean-Michel Baquiat, Louise Bourgeois, Carroll Dunham, Eva Hesse, Ilya Kabakov, Martin Puryear, Louise Lawler, Bruce Nauman, Adrian Piper, Jackson Pollock, Chéri Samba, Nancy Spero, Yvonne Rainer and Rachel Whiteread (among many others). Writings on Art offers fresh insights on some of the most influential artists of our era, and is a must-read for curators and students, artists, exhibition-goers and all those interested in the art and culture of today.

Robert Storr (born 1949) is a renowned American critic, curator and artist. His writing has appeared in countless books and exhibition catalogs. He was curator and senior curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, for more than a decade, and became the first North American curator of the Venice Biennale in 2007. Storr led the Yale University School of Art as Dean from 2006 to 2016, and continues to teach there as professor of painting.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Art Daily News

The 672-page collection spans two and a half decades of Storr’s influential criticism, shedding light on some of the most consequential figures in modern and contemporary art [...] Informed by Storr’s wide-ranging knowledge and his lived experience as an artist in his own right, these reviews, articles, and essays have risen above the often specialized, theory-dense discourse of the past half century to speak meaningfully and movingly to a general audience

NEW RELEASE: Robert Storr's 672-page 'Writings on Art 1980–2005'

Featured spreads (showing a 1920s Suprematist relief sculpture by Ivan Puni on the top left; a 2003 acrylic on board by Richard Tuttle on the top right; and two relief sculptures by Frank Stella below) are from Heni's gorgeous new 672-page clothbound collection of Robert Storr's Writings on Art, 1980–2005—the first of a two-volume set. A new release this week, this monumental trove launches virtually Tuesday, November 17, with a conversation between the Storr and the book's editor, Francesca Pietropaolo, via Paula Cooper Gallery and 192 Books in New York. "Writing to someone, without knowing who that someone might be, is at the heart of Storr’s critical output," Pietropaolo writes. "There is a longed-for interlocutor, unnamed and yet ever present. The invitation to the reader to engage with a text, in dialog with the writer and with themselves, is palpable even in, or perhaps because of, its elusiveness. A self-declared 'insatiable scopophiliac bedeviled by the written word,' Storr proves to be one of the most influential and riveting art writers of our time. Infused with a remarkable agility of intelligence and an uncompromising belief in the importance of art, the writings collected in this book show just that and make sparks fly." continue to blog
