Includes bibliographical references.
A handsome compendium of speculations on art and artists by a revered protagonist of postwar British sculpture. Alongside her career as an artist, Phyllida Barlow (born 1944) has written, taught, lectured and been the subject of numerous interviews. Over the course of her lengthy career, she has become as well known for her writing and pedagogy as for her imposing, colorful and playful installations. This massive volume compiles 50 texts by Barlow--prose, presentations, reflections on artists and conversations. Edited by Sara Harrison, this reader gives access to nearly 50 years of Barlow's thoughts on making, teaching, drawing and artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Marcel Duchamp, Eva Hesse, Eduardo Chillida, Henry Moore and David Smith. Among her interlocutors in the conversations are Hans Ulrich Obrist, Fiona Bradley, Briony Fer and Mark Godfrey.
