As the art world shifts and expands, the position of everyone in its orbit--from viewers to critics and curators to artists themselves--is continuously reinvented and transformed. Though the artist remains at the center of the artistic universe, what it means to be an artist is in constant flux. Setting out to explore this condition, art advisor, collector and journalist Marta Gnyp conducted a series of interviews with artists and their interlocutors; You, Me and Art collects these conversations.
Here, Fran ois Pinault speaks about his experiences and his vision of contemporary art as a collector; Anthony d'Offay reflects on artists and the postwar art system from the perspective of a gallerist; and Demetrio Paparoni reflects on the state of contemporary art in his role as an art historian, curator and critic. Artists such as Carl Andre, Michael Borremans, Mark Bradford, Damien Hirst, Robert Longo, Sarah Lucas, Danh Vo and more speak about what the work and life of an artist can look like now, testifying to the diversity and variability of that position.
You, Me and Art: Artists in the 21st Century offers fresh insights into the artistic practices of our time, giving readers a glimpse of the extraordinary range of things an artist might do or think about, and how these concerns shape our contemporary art system.
