At Julian Schnabel's outdoor studio in Montauk, Summer 2012
Earlier this month Gagosian released Bill Powers' first non-fiction book, Interviews With Artists, a collection of Q&As ranging from art world legends like Ed Ruscha, George Condo and Jeff Koons to newer talent such as Nate Lowman, Rashid Johnson and Adam McEwen (whose painting graces the cover).
Many of these conversations were originally published in Purple Fashion magazine (Dave Hickey, Peter Beard, Damien Hirst with Jay-Z), but several were conducted specifically for this volume (Tom Sachs, Ryan McGinely, Julian Schnabel). Discover what Kara Walker considers to be the first human artwork, read Dana Schutz's remembrances of drawing Barack Obama in person, or hear John Currin's problem with bad reviews ("they're usually right.") This collection is a must-read for any contemporary art lover.
