Martin Puryear: Liberty / Libertà

Foreword by Brooke Kamin Rapaport. Text by Anne Wagner, Tobi Haslett, Darby English.

Accompanying the landmark exhibition by renowned Hudson Valley–based artist Martin Puryear (born 1941), who is representing the United States at the 58th Venice Biennale, this book captures a high point in the career of one of today’s most acclaimed artists.

In addition to extensive illustrations of new sculptures made for the Biennale, including a significant site-specific work, the book features major texts by Brooke Kamin Rapaport, Darby English and Anne Wagner. The works and essays demonstrate Puryear’s powerful, original and influential engagement with art history and social history on both a personal level, as an African American artist, and universally.

With a definitive illustrated chronology of the artist’s career over the last fifty years, Martin Puryear: Liberty / Libertà is an essential look at one of the most important artists today, who continues to work at the height of his powers.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

New York Times

Holland Cotter

Taken together, [the works in 'Liberty/Libertà'] constitute a kind of précis of his styles and methods. But they’re also evidence of an intensified response to topical concerns in the present.

Artnet

Ben Davis

The veteran sculptor does not raise his voice or sermonize but [Liberty/Libertà] delivers an eloquent message about history, race, and the struggle for freedom.

Art Newspaper

With a tactile surface appeal to match their multi-layered meanings, [Liberty/Libertà contains] deeply meditated works that present liberty as a universal, rather than American, right.

New York Times

Kat Herriman

Each piece [in 'Liberty/Libertà'] draws special attention to the relationship between architecture and power, exemplified by “A Column for Sally Hemings” (2019), a column pierced with a cast-iron stake inspired the story of Sally Hemings.

Washington Post

Philip Kennicott

[In Liberty/Libertà] each work offers multiple meanings, intersects with the others and connects to concerns far beyond the rarefied realm of art.

Wall Street Journal

Peter Plagens

[In] ‘Liberty/Libertà’ [...] Martin Puryear [...] gives beautiful form to the political in works that deal with slavery.

Midwest Book Review

Carl Logan

Impressively informative, deftly illustrated throughout...
