Publisher's description: Robert Storr is a major force in the art world -- not just an artist himself, but also a curator and a widely respected critic. Seen as a vital link between academic art criticism, contemporary art practice, and the public, he was named one of the most influential Americans in the art world by New York Magazine in 2006. The author of more than two dozen books, Storr in recent years has turned his attention to interviewing most of the biggest names in contemporary art for a variety of publications, including Art in America, Artforum, and Frieze. This book gathers the majority of those interviews for the first time, fully illustrated and absolutely fascinating. In these pages, Storr talks with such landmark artists as Gerhard Richter, Chuck Close, Richard Serra, Elizabeth Murray, Catherine David, Mike Kelley, and many, many more -- thirty in all, each set alongside examples of the art being discussed. The result is a rare treat: a deeply thoughtful who's who of contemporary art, one that lets the artists speak in their own words to a knowledgeable and sympathetic interlocutor, and, by setting them in context with one another, enables fans to see interconnections, sympathies, and shared perspectives.
