First published in 1996, this irreplaceable resource-more than three hundred artists speaking for themselves on issues related to the production and philosophy of contemporary art-has now been updated, revised, and expanded by editor Kristine Stiles to represent thirty countries and more than one hundred new artists. Stiles has added forty images and a diverse roster of artists, including many who have emerged since the 1980s, such as Julie Mehretu, Kara Walker, Damien Hirst, Shirin Neshat, Cai Guo-Qian, Olafur Eliasson, Matthew Barney, and Takashi Murakami. The writings, which as before take the form of artists' statements, interviews, and essays, make vivid each artist's aesthetic approach and capture the flavor and intent of his or her work. The internationalism evident in this revised edition reflects the growing interest in the vitality of contemporary art throughout the world from the U.S. and Europe to the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Australia.

Review: Roughing It, Vol 1

User Review  - Joan - Goodreads

This year I have been reading a lot of older books I missed. Mark Twain's Roughing It was most enjoyable. He starts out as a very young man traveling west to Silver City Nevada and tells many tales along the way. Give insight to his life and times in Nevada, California and Hawaii. Read full review

User Review  - Jennifer - Goodreads

I try to make myself read the bookclub books because they can get me out of my mystery/fantasy/history rut, but I cannot finish this book. It took three long painful chapters to cover the first DAY. I had to stop. Read full review
