about this item

Michael Auping, one of America's foremost curators of contemporary art, explores process and technique through conversations he has had over the past four decades with the most significant artists during his career.At the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Michael Auping helped transform the museum into an internationally acclaimed institution. This book collects nearly eighty conversations with more than forty of the artists he worked with, including Georg Baselitz, Louise Bourgeois, Ellsworth Kelly, Anselm Kiefer, Bruce Nauman, Ed Ruscha, Richard Serra, Frank Stella, Kara Walker, and Lawrence Weiner. In his interviews--divided into thematic chapters such as "Dimensions of Drawing,""The Studio,""Figures of Speech," and "Light and Space"--Auping's probing and eloquent curiosity elicits illuminating and fascinating insights from his subjects and touches on every aspect of the artistic process, allowing many of the artists to reveal interests and influences not exposed in other contexts.
