Book Signing & Celebration
of the New Book
“Twin Visions: Jerome Witkin & Joel-Peter Witkin”

About the Book:
Estranged for more than 50 years, identical twin brothers – the celebrated artists Joel-Peter Witkin and Jerome Witkin – are brought together for the first time in this publication that re-creates the historic presentation of the two artists in a major exhibition at Jack Rutberg Fine Arts, in Los Angeles. Each work is illustrated in full and double page images. The text includes the first interviews of the artists together, as well as a selection of the initial reviews published through the mid-point of the exhibition’s extended run, making this a unique virtual “real-time” publication.

The book includes an introduction by Jack Rutberg and writings from 16 separate publications plus an audio CD of the historic first interview with Jerome and Joel-Peter Witkin, broadcast on Public Radio, recorded on the opening day of this historic exhibition.

Both artists will sign copies of this new publication.
Advance purchase is recommended to avoid lines.

About the Exhibition:
Due to the extraordinary international response to this important exhibition, Jack Rutberg Fine Arts is extending the run of the exhibition, “Twin Visions: Jerome Witkin & Joel Peter Witkin” through summer, with a new closing date of August 30.

Cited by many as the most important exhibition in Los Angeles, visitors continue to engage this historic exhibition, with travelers specifically coming to Los Angeles from as far away as Paris, Mexico City, New York, San Francisco, and all points in between.

The exhibition has been the subject of three Public Radio programs, in addition to numerous articles published to date. A documentary film is currently in production.
