Cerith Wyn Evans’ gloriously uncategorizable oeuvre has spanned installation works, sculptures, photography, film, text and a recent collaboration with industrial-music pioneers Throbbing Gristle. Preoccupations with language and perception generally lead the works, from an exhibition at Tate Britain in which a computer randomly selected lines from William Blake’s poetry to be reflected off a disco ball in Morse code format to “Inverse, Perverse, Reverse,” a large circular mirror that showed viewers’ reflections upside down, referencing Lacan’s mirror-stage theory of identity while throwing a wrench into the expected experience of representation. Evans has said he wants his work to function as a “catalyst or reservoir of possible meanings that, for the viewer, could unravel many discursive journeys.” In this series of conversations, Hans Ulrich Obrist draws Evans on these and other themes.… (more)

Hans Ulrich Obrist has been conducting ongoing conversations with the world's greatest living artists since he began in Switzerland, aged 19, with Fischli and Weiss. Here he chooses 19 of the greatest figures and presents their conversations, offering the reader intimacy with the artists and insight into their creative processes.

Inspired by the great Vasari, Lives of the Artists, Lives of the Architects explores the meaning of art and artists today, their varying approaches to creating, and a sense of how their thinking evolves over time. Including David Hockney, Gilbert and George, Gerhard Richter, Louise Bourgeois, Rem Koolhaas, and Oscar Niemeyer, this is a wonderful and unique book for those interested in modern art.… (more)
