LONDON.- Art Studio America: Contemporary Artist Spaces features original interviews with and specially commissioned photographs of 115 leading artists who are active in America today. From John Baldessari and Larry Bell to Alex Katz and Andrea Zittel, this extraordinary book gives a rare insight into the thoughts, dreams and ideas of the artists in the landscapes in which they work. Exceptional essays by art-world luminaries Robert Storr, Mark Godfrey and Ben Genocchio augment the artists’ profiles.

From New York’s illustrious skyline to Southern California’s hazily sunny boardwalks, Art Studio America provides a privileged glimpse into the workings of one of the world’s largest artistic communities. Featuring such established figures as Marina Abramovic, Chris Burden, Francesco Clemente, Chuck Close, George Condo, Gregory Crewdson, John Currin, Dan Graham, Nancy Holt, Robert Irwin, Emilia and Ilya Kabakov, Jeff Koons, Joseph Kosuth, Robert Longo, Brice Marden, Richard Prince, Julian Schnabel, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Bill Viola and Lawrence Weiner, the book also includes select members of the new guard, including Allora & Calzadilla, Rita Ackerman, Cory Arcangel, Tauba Auerbach, Hernan Bas, Mark Bradford, Theaster Gates, Charlene von Heyl, Mark Grotjahn, Rashid Johnson, Julie Mehretu, Richard Phillips, Sterling Ruby, Taryn Simon, Rirkrit Tiravanija.

While the world may know well the work of many of these artists, they have rarely, if ever, allowed their personal landscapes to be traversed in such an intimate manner and against the backdrop, both literal and figurative, of their country’s larger environment. Art Studio America was conceived as a journey, contrasting visits to artists’ studios with explorations of the country’s sweeping landscapes of light and form, whether wild or tamed, that have inspired artists since the Luminists and the landscape specialists of the Hudson River School.

Designed to a large format, lavishly illustrated and produced to the highest standards, Art Studio America follows on the phenomenal success of Sanctuary: Britain’s Artists and their Studios, a six-hundred-page seminal tome exploring the
lives, times and studios of 120 of Britain’s leading artists, recently voted a Book of
the Year by The Art Newspaper.
