Richard Hunt

Introduction by Courtney J. Martin. Text by John Yau, Jordan Carter, LeRonn Brooks. Interview by Adrienne Childs. Chronology by Jon Ott.

Richard Hunt

Seven decades of incredibly dynamic sculpture in bronze and steel from the Chicago virtuoso—with full-color plates, archival materials and much more

Sculptor Richard Hunt was only 35 years old at the time of his 1971 retrospective exhibition at MoMA—the first for an African American sculptor at the museum—and his continued work over the course of his nearly seven-decade-long career, ranging from small bronze and steel sculptures to large-scale public commissions, has cemented his place as one of the foremost artists of the 20th century. This book is the definitive look at Hunt’s work and career. Fully illustrated with more than 350 images, including historical photographs, installation images, images of Hunt in his studio, newspaper clippings and a plate section of significant works from throughout the artist’s career, this book also includes a section on his major public commissions, a recent interview with art historian Adrienne L. Childs and an illustrated biography and chronology by Hunt's biographer Jon Ott. Essays discuss Hunt’s attentiveness to antiquity, the ways in which his critical reception aligned with his practice and the relevance of his unique studio—a decommissioned electrical substation in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood—to the ethos of his artmaking. This volume is a testament to the monumental works and stature of one of our greatest living artists.
Chicago artist Richard Hunt (born 1935) is one of the most important sculptors of the 20th century. Hunt has had over 150 solo exhibitions and is represented in more than 100 public museums. In 2022 the Obama Presidential Center in Chicago commissioned him to make a work for its collection.

From this day forward, 'Richard Hunt' is a book no serious art library can be without

Featured spreads are from Gregory R. Miller's definitive new monograph on Chicago sculptor Richard Hunt. Spanning seven decades of pure artistic inquiry, this 352-page volume includes historical photographs, installation shots, images of Hunt in his studio, newspaper clippings and a section on major public commissions, alongside a plate section of significant works from throughout the artist’s career. A recent interview with art historian Adrienne L. Childs and an illustrated biography and chronology by Hunt's biographer Jon Ott are amplified by a host of scholarly essays. "To be creative is to not know what one is doing," Hunt is quoted. "The process of creation resolves the imbalance or irritation that initiated the desire to create something. Sculpture is a way of exploring, amplifying and giving form to my enthusiasms, which are wide-ranging and often intersect each other, technically, emotionally and spiritually. God said to man: I just gave you life; you make the rules you are going to live by. I value my independence. Value systems can give impetus, support, meaning and resonance to style. Sometimes it is not about making art. Sometimes it is about making statements about culture and history or history and culture with or through art. The goal is to wander, wander through the unknown in search of the unknown, all the while leaving your mark. Art can do it all: a life of doing things, a life of making things. Sculpture is habit-forming, lifestyle-forming; my hands are getting more like claws, or dull, worn talons." continue to blog
