The Wandering Veil provides a comprehensive survey of the work of the New York–based Israeli artist Izhar Patkin (born 1955). Published for an exhibition which traveled from the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and The Open Museum, Tefen to MASS MoCA, it focuses on works of the past decade, including Patkin’s series of mural-size "veil" paintings on tulle, inspired by the work of the late Kashmiri-American poet Agha Shahid Ali and its themes of memory, loss and exile. Arranged thematically, this book contains 125 color plates and includes examples of key works from the 1980s and 1990s. It also features interviews with the artist by David Ross and the late critic Herbert Muschamp, plus texts by authors from a range of disciplines, including curators, poets, art and architecture critics, a literary scholar, a psychoanalyst and a theologian.
