Artists Living with Art is full of fascinating and often surprising revelations about the artworks a select group of the world’s most influential contemporary artists choose to collect and display in the intimacy of their own homes. (Just as Andy Warhol famously collected cookie jars, so do these 25 artists, all living in New York, collect art and in some cases, mundane objects they cherish as art.) The works they display reflect remarkably diverse, eclectic and often unexpected tastes. Many of these homes, some of which also function as studios, have never been seen and offer unique insight into each artists’ personal life, creative process, and artistic practices, as well as what inspires them and who their friends are (many swap art with one another).Readers will learn about the pieces most treasured by each artist, as well as their favourite period in art (a surprising number have a preference for pre-twentieth-century art). Authors Stacey Goergen and Amanda Benchley gained unprecedented access into each home for the photography and interviews, and highly acclaimed photographer Oberto Gili was commissioned to shoot the these homes especially for the book. Intimacies from such artists as Cindy Sherman, Brice Marden, Eric Fishl, Michelle Oka Doner and Will Cotton are shared through the engaging, accessible text and gorgeous photography Featured Artists: Cindy Sherman Brice Marden Will Cotton Jeff Koons John Currin & Rachel Feinstein Eric Fischl & April Gornick Chuck Close Joel Shapiro & Ellen Phalen Leo Villareal Marilyn Minter Michelle Oka Donar Mickalene Thomas Andres Serrano Pat Steir Rashid Johnson Tauba Auerbach Timothy Greenfield-Sanders Ursula von Rydingsvard Mary Heilmann Ugo Rondinone Julian Lethbridge Joan Jonas EV Day
