Latest Podcast: The Review Panel from February 7


  • David Cohen

    Marjorie Welish has communicated the following comment to me:
    Thank you for the panel discussion, and for your perspectives on my work.
    Theoretically, Alain Kirili was amazingly accurate–yes, “Some Differences” is a dedicated study of difference and repetition meant to hold in mind a Deleuzean response to antithesis, wherein diptychs of antithetical structures yet also some other works for which differentials in degree rather than difference in kind are the point. And he got that.

    But I’d like to correct an error in fact. When Granary Books commissioned a work from me in 2006 it was “to take charge of the whole thing,” as Steve Clay put it, and so as artist primarily I conceived of the constructed artists’ book and invited James Siena to contribute; it was with the agreement that we be both visual and verbal mates. http://www.granarybooks.com/book/1130/James_Siena_Marjorie_Welish+Oaths_Questions/

    Published in 2009, Oaths? Questions? is an edition of 50, with copies now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Bieneke, Getty, Smith College Museum of Art,, etc.
