Kurzbeschreibung

10. Januar 2009
When this book first appeared in 1982, it introduced readers to Robert Irwin, the Los Angeles artist 'who one day got hooked on his own curiosity and decided to live it'. Now expanded to include six additional chapters and twenty-four pages of color plates, "Seeing Is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees" chronicles three decades of conversation between Lawrence Weschler and light and space master Irwin. It surveys many of Irwin's site-conditioned projects - in particular the Central Gardens at the Getty Museum (the subject of an epic battle with the site's principal architect, Richard Meier) and the design that transformed an abandoned Hudson Valley factory into Dia's new Beacon campus - enhancing what many had already considered the best book ever on an artist.

Pressestimmen

"A magnetic (now expanded) biography." -- Robert L. Pincus San Diego Union-Tribune 20090222 "Seeing is Forgetting may not be just the best biography of an artist out there but also one of the best books on contemporary art-making." -- Eugenia Bell Frieze 20081001

Synopsis

When this book first appeared in 1982, it introduced readers to Robert Irwin, the Los Angeles artist "who one day got hooked on his own curiosity and decided to live it." Now, expanded to include six additional chapters and twenty-four pages of color plates, "Seeing Is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees" chronicles three decades of conversation between Lawrence Weschler and light and space master Irwin. It surveys many of Irwin's site-conditioned projects - in particular the Central Gardens at the Getty Museum (the subject of an epic battle with the site's principal architect, Richard Meier) and the design that transformed an abandoned Hudson Valley factory into Dia's new Beacon campus - enhancing what many had already considered the best ever book on an artist.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Großes Buch über einen großen Künstler 25. Mai 2013
Von ZT
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Wer ein bisschen die Welt vergessen machen will, ohne Metaphysik oder sakralen Msytizismus zu bemühen, wendet sich am besten an Irwins Kunst.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Really Fantastic 2. Mai 2012
Von MonsoonKing - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I've read on ton of books of art history and theory, and this one stands out as one of the best.

Through thirty years of friendship and discussions, Weschler traces Bob Irwin's career, from buffing car dashboards in high school to creating monumental gardens and installations in his old age. The benefit of this extended coverage is that we get to see how Irwin develops in every stage of his career, often as these developments are happening. We discover how relationships, environment, the art world, and philosophy influence Irwin's evolution and how each element manifests itself in his work.

Irwin typically deals with abstract, minimalist, and formalist art which is often considered "difficult", even by open minded art viewers. In these interviews, he extensively details his mental and physical process, offering an unparalleled look at just what goes into these works. He recounts staring at a canvas for weeks, trying to decide precisely where a line should go and what impact it will have on the finished work. Even if you don't find yourself mesmerized by the next Agnes Martin you come across after reading this book, you'll at least gain an appreciation of why some people find it interesting and what might have been going through the mind of the artist when he/she created it.

Part of what this makes this biography so compelling is that Irwin is an incredibly appealing character. Most successful artists are pigeonholed as shameless self-promoters or tortured geniuses. Irwin comes across as humble, brilliant, open minded, sincere, and indefatigably dedicated to his work. He seems like an art world version of Richard Feynman; the kind of curious guy you'd love to explore ideas with over a beer. He can talk about betting the ponies and Wittgenstein. He has a soft spot for Cadillacs but doesn't mind living a frugal, almost hermetic existence. He's fascinated by both the mind and the soul.

This book isn't a page turner (though Bob is an excellent story teller). It's really best savored and carefully considered. But, if you're interested in Irwin, abstract art, art theory, the artistic process, hope to increase your art appreciation, or are just looking for an interesting biography, this is well worth a read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen History that should not be missed. 18. Februar 2009
Von Michael - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is an extremely well written and understandable account of the life and work of one of the greatest artist of our time. "Seeing is Forgetting" brings with it an understanding of the processes and theory involved in creating art that is entirely your own. This book includes Art history in the making and should not be missed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen best artist biography 6. Februar 2011
Von Gary Seelig - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I first read this book in 1983 and now again in December 2010 - and it stands as the best artist biography I have ever read. Irwin begins with customizing cars in the 1940s and proceeds seamlessly through realism, abstraction, minimalism, and on to the Getty Gardens and Dia Beacon - but really the book is not about "isms" - it is about presence and perception - a life altering read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen See Here Now 17. März 2011
Von Mel Pal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I plan to expand this review later, but I just wanted to say that this book has improved the way I use my visual perception. We receive so much information from all of our senses that it is difficult to give the attention required to maximize the value of our experiences. This book encouraged me to be more attentive to and perceptive of what I see as Peter Stankovich has helped me to be more attentive to what I hear. Peter's book is about one on one conversations while this is about viewing inanimate objects, but they are both about being involved in the present with the experience. Both books help you enrich your life as it occurs.

5.0 von 5 Sternen You can always choose to see 29. März 2014
Von Mickey Kovari - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Next level. Beautifully written stories within a meta story about a genius who is incredibly inspiring. I wish more people would read this and be influenced by Irwin's approach to life. Savior the experience, the experience is the art, and the experience is whenever you decide to be present. Whenever you decide to perceive. Whether your eyes are open or closed, you can always see.
