Between Artists:

by Amy Sillman and Gregg Bordowitz

×

“There’s a holy feeling, I think, that accompanies objectless yearning. Perhaps a feeling of awe, also a feeling of dread”

—Gregg Bordowitz

“So how is it different from the sublime?”

—Amy Sillman

“Between Artists” is an ongoing series of books edited by Alejandro Cesarco and originally published by A.R.T. Press. They are based on artist to artist conversations. The conversation format permits a thorough and at the same time informal investigation of the artists’ practice and the larger social issues that inform it. By virtue of their clarity, personal focus, affordability, and innovative method of distribution, these books make possible the presentation of contemporary artists and their work to a wide readership.

Since the first “Between Artists” books were released in 2005, they have gained a cult following, and a number of them have been out of print. Badlands Unlimited, in association with A.R.T. Press, is pleased to reissue “Between Artists” as ebooks for a new generation of readers.

Between December 2006 and January 2007, Sillman and Bordowitz recorded approximately 10 hours of conversation on topics ranging from art and philosophy to their personal histories and friendship. The resulting publication follows the chronology of their discussions from beginning to end. The transcript starts where they consider the beliefs underlying their respective endeavors, what art can and cannot accomplish.

This ebook contains a new postscript created by Sillman and Bordowitz in the summer of 2014.
