"This book is a collection of interviews that reveals the diversity of techniques employed by important artists of the past two decades. Not only do the artists yield insights into the actual creative process, but some of the most immediate questions about the conservation of contemporary art also come to light." "Since there has been increasing concern about the preservation of contemporary art, the author contends that the use of many different materials 'poses a great challenge' to the conservator." "Forced to seek new interpretations, Stephan Gotz, a conservator himself, directly confronts twenty-six New York artists in their studios. In each interview Gotz transforms the artist into a specialist who offers us a very personal and subjective view of his/her art. Each artist presents a diversity of new and accepted techniques." "A prefatory note by Robert Lue establishes the context for each interview and a reproduction of a recent or important work by the artist is included."-Jacket.
