Inside the Artist’s Studio
Princeton Architectural Press (October 6, 2015)
Sunday, August 7 at 2 pm

In this thought-provoking collection, twenty-four painters, video and mixed-media artists, sculptors, and photographers reveal their highly idiosyncratic techniques and philosophies, as well as their quotidian habits and strategies for getting work done: the music they listen to; the hours they keep; the relationships with gallerists and curators, friends, family, and fellow artists that sustain them outside the studio. Readers will learn how singeing off a friend’s eyebrows provided the inspiration for Petah Coyne’s wax pieces, how the cemeteries of Cypress Hills lured Leonardo Drew, how Judy Pfaff became a sculptor in order to avoid the painting crits at Yale, and numerous other artists’ insights, advice, and stories of the art-making life.
Book available in the Museum Shop in June | $35.00
