Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Published to accompany the third season of the award-winning PBS television series, this lavishly illustrated volume offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse at some of the most interesting artists working today. Interviewing the artists on the themes of Memory, Power, Play, and Structure, Susan Sollins, executive producer of the series, takes us into their studios and homes where they talk about their life and art in their own words. The 18 artists include established figures such as Ida Applebroog, Mike Kelley, Susan Rothenberg, and Fred Wilson, and emerging artists such as Laylah Ali, Arturo Herrera, and Josiah McElheny.

The innovative approach-bringing the viewer and reader directly into the world of these artists to hear their own unique voices-has already won the Art:21 series the prestigious Golden Hugo Award for "the best in international television," and a rave notice from the New York Times: "When the artists do the talking, something fascinating happens."

Synopsis:

Published to accompany the second season in PBS's acclaimed television series, this richly illustrated book offers a unique glimpse into the lives of some of the most interesting artists now working in America. 387 illustrations, 355 in full color.
