Into Words. The Selected Writings of Carroll Dunham
Artist Carroll Dunham (b. 1949) is one of the most acclaimed and innovative painters of his generation. But he is also an astute writer who has engaged with a wide variety of artists in the form of reviews, catalog essays, and interviews. Collected here for the first time, Into Words reveals the true depth of Dunham’s writing. From reviews of Pablo Picasso and Jasper Johns to a gonzo Peter Saul interview, to an appreciation of Kara Walker’s films and reflections on his own practice, Dunham writes about what is made and why it matters with real wit and candor. Into Words is an invaluable reader for anyone interested in contemporary art and culture. With an introduction by Scott Rothkopf, chief curator of the Whitney Museum of American Art, and a publisher’s foreword by Paul Chan.
