Faux Pas - Selected Writings and Drawings of Amy Sillman


A key figure in the New York art scene, Amy Sillman is renowned for her singular approach to painting and drawing. Her writings extend a practice that challenges traditions and theoretical frameworks with criticality and humour, and advocates subjectivity: she re-evaluates Abstract
Expressionism with a queer eye, explores the meanings of colour and shape, and discusses in depth the work of other artists-from Delacroix to Maria Lassnig to Laura Owens. In Faux Pas, a collection of her most recent essays, alongside her cartoons and original drawings, art-as personal as it is political-is a practice that responds to today's struggles.
