LONDON.- Interviews on Art was inspired by the desire to bring together, for the first time, the most important interviews conducted by the acclaimed American critic and curator Robert Storr. This definitive collection brings together conversations with many of the most celebrated names in the art world including Gerhard Richter, Louise Bourgeois, Jeff Koons, Alex Katz, Chuck Close, Richard Serra, Gabriel Orozco, Sophie Calle, Elizabeth Murray, Harald Szeemann and Mike Kelley. Each interview is accompanied by images of relevant works and previously unpublished photographs of the artists themselves.

Editor and long-time collaborator, Francesca Pietropaolo, has carefully chosen from Storr’s extraordinary life archive of writing and curating. The sixty-one illustrated interviews in the book span the years from 1981 to 2016 and comprise thought-provoking dialogues on art with a wide range of artists of different generations and of different formal and poetic inclinations. This ultimate selection includes discussions around a variety of media, ranging from painting, drawing, sculpture, and installation to graphic work, photography, video, film, and performance.

Robert Storr’s interviews are disarmingly intimate in their general tone: his engaging conversations afford fresh insights into the methods, thinking, and achievements of some of the most influential practitioners of our time, and, simultaneously, they shed light on significant shifts in aesthetic and cultural discourse over the last four decades. The themes of the conversations encompass the intrinsic problems of art as well as social and political issues of the day. Together, these interviews offer an unusual cross section of the landscape of contemporary art, opening up a multitude of points of view.

A conversation between curator and art historian Francesca Pietropaolo and Robert Storr introduces the texts, in which they dissect the interview as a medium: discussing the ethics involved, the notion of technique and approach, alongside the limitations and difficulties of the process. 
The book features nineteen previously unpublished interviews with subjects including Buckminster Fuller, Mary Reid Kelley, Robert Ryman and Kara Walker.

Robert Storr is a curator, critic, and painter. From 1990-2002 he worked
 at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, as curator and then as senior curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture. In 2002 he became the first Rosalie Solow Professor of Modern Art at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. From 2006 to 2016 he served as the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Dean of the Yale University School of Art, where he continues to be a professor of painting. From 2005—2007 he served as Artistic Director of the Venice Biennale.

Since 1982, Robert Storr’s essays, reviews, and columns have appeared in Art in America, Art Press, Frieze, Artforum, Parkett, Corriere della Sera, and other magazines
 and journals. He is the author of numerous catalogues and books. A frequent lecturer both in the United States and abroad, he has taught painting, drawing, art history, and criticism at numerous colleges, universities, and art schools. He is the recipient of many prestigious awards for his criticism and curatorial work from organizations such as the International Association of Art Critics and the Archives of American Art. Robert Storr lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, and
