Memory Work: Anne Truitt and Sculpture

To celebrate Memory Work: Anne Truitt and Sculpture, published by the University of California Press, the author, Miguel de Baca, will join the artist's daughter, Alexandra Truitt, to discuss the publication at the New York Public Library on Wednesday, January 20, 6 - 8 PM. The discussion will take place in the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building in the Celeste Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.

Memory Work: Anne Truitt and Sculpture will be released in December, 2015. In addition to Truitt's own popular published writings, which detail the unique challenges facing female artists, Memory Work draws on unpublished manuscripts, private recordings, and never-before-seen working drawings to validate Truitt’s original ideas about the link between perception and mnemonic reference in contemporary art. Miguel de Baca offers an insider’s view of the artist’s unstinting efforts to realize her artistic vision, as well as the cultural, political, and historical resonances her oeuvre has for us today.
