Since its inception, co-founder and artistic director Phong Bui and the Railís contributors have interviewed over four hundred artists for The Brooklyn Rail. This volume brings together for the first time a selection of sixty of the most influential and seminal interviews with artists ranging from Richard Serra and Brice Marden, to Alex Da Corte and House of Ladosha. While each interview is important in its own right, offering a perspective on the life and work of a specific artist, collectively they tell the story of a journal that has grown during one of the more diverse and surprising periods in visual art. There is no unified style or perspective; The Brooklyn Railís strength lies in its ability to include and champion difference.

Selected and coedited by Jarrett Earnest, a frequent Rail contributor, with Lucas Zwirner, the book includes an introduction to the project by Phong Bui as well as many of the hand-drawn portraits he has made of those he has interviewed over the years. This combination of verbal and visual profiles offers a rare and personal insight into contemporary visual culture.

Join us in the Rare Book Room for a panel discussion featuring Brooklyn Rail publisher Phong Bui along with Jonas Mekas, Shirin Neshat, Shahzia Sikander and Jack Whitten, who are included in the book, moderated by Lucas Zwirner!
