Artists’ Bookshelves. To celebrate this month’s art issue, we’ll be posting the bookshelves of some of our favorite artists. This week: Sculptor and installation/sound artist Julianne Swartz. A retrospective of her work, Julianne Swartz: How Deep is Your, opened at the deCordova Museum and Sculpture Park last year, is currently on view at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, and will travel to the Indianapolis Museum of Art in 2014. You can download examples of her audio work from the Whitney Museum and the deCordova.
My Mod in front of my book-laden cabinet. This collection show here is very music-centric: Many books on Bob Dylan, John Lennon, the Beatles, the Stones, Patti Smith’s Just Kids. There’s humor: the Onion Our Dumb World, the Daily Show’s America. Some of my favorite writers: Carl Sagan, Bill Bryson, Nick Hornby. Some art: Books on mosaic art and Kandinsky. And, for good measure, a Beatles wig!
Poets’ Bookshelves. An ongoing series of posts documenting some of the books collected by our favorite poets. This week: Chris Nealon, author of The Joyous Age (Black Square Editions, 2004), Plummet (Edge Books, 2009), and The Dial (a chapbook free to download from the Song Cave).
