Mary Weatherford: Canyon—Daisy—Eden

Regular price Regular price $80

This career-spanning volume documents the first museum retrospective devoted to the work of Mary Weatherford. Over the last three decades, Weatherford has developed a rich and diverse oeuvre, from her early 1990s target paintings based on operatic heroines to the expansive, gestural canvases overlaid with neon tubing that brought attention to her practice in the 2010s. Mary Weatherford: Canyon—Daisy—Eden surveys the artist’s career, drawing from several distinct bodies of work made between 1989 and 2019. As constant experiments with color, scale, and materials, these works as a whole reveal the continuity of Weatherford’s interest in human experience, both personal and historical.

Featuring 120 full-color plates and expansive installation views, this volume—published by the Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College in association with Gagosian—documents an exhibition presented at the Tang in Saratoga Springs, New York, and at SITE Santa Fe. It includes an introduction by exhibition organizers Ian Berry and Bill Arning; a conversation between Weatherford and Berry; essays by Arning and Dale Peck; texts by Rebecca Morris and Elissa Auther; a short story by Margaret Weatherford; and a poem by Arnold J. Kemp, commissioned for the publication.
