The Dept. of Corrections: Collected Writings 2007-2015 - Bob Nickas


This volume collects some of the best work of New-York based critic and curator Bob Nickas, widely considered to be one of the few independent voices still at work today. In this selection of 50 essays and interviews produced between 2007 and 2015, we encounter artists from the '60s through to the present day- among them, Jack Smith, Andy Warhol, Frank Stella, On Kawara, Isa Genzken, Steven Parrino, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kara Walker, Wolfgang Tillmans, Kelley Walker and Pierre Huyghe. Nickas traces the change in art, architecture and culture in New York over three decades; his writing bringing the past vividly into the present.
