The first collection of essays by one of America’s most decisive and 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 Basquiat, 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, students, artists, exhibition-goers, and all those interested in the art and culture of today.
