KRISTEN MUELLER | DATE 4/22/2019
Join Artbook on Sunday, April 28, from 2 to 4 PM in the MoMA PS1 Book Space to launch the publication Neil Goldberg: Other People's Prescriptions, published by Esopus Books, with a discussion between Goldberg and New Yorker writer Jia Tolentino. A book signing will follow. To pre-order signed copies, email email@example.com.
The 80-page book comprises 40 color images from Goldberg’s recent photographic series of the same name, the subjects of which are bespectacled New Yorkers photographed from behind to afford viewers a glimpse of the city through their corrective lenses. The book includes an introduction by Pulitzer Prize winning author Louis Menand. This volume is the first to be published under the nonprofit organization The Esopus Foundation Ltd.'s imprint, Esopus Books, and the first monograph of work by the New York City–based artist Neil Goldberg.
Over the past 25 years, Neil Goldberg has created a remarkable series of artworks (including a project for Esopus 8) that incorporate photography, video, installation, mixed media and performance to explore embodiment, sensing, mortality and the everyday. New York—in particular, the rituals, gestures and accoutrements of its inhabitants—has always played a major role in his work, and the city features prominently in Other People’s Prescriptions.
This event is free and open to the public. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to pre-order a signed copy.
