Robert Irwin Getty Garden - Revised Edition (Hardback)

£16.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Among the most beloved sites at the Getty Center, the Central Garden has aroused intense interest from the moment artist Robert Irwin was awarded the commission. First published in 2002, 'Robert Irwin Getty Garden' is comprised of a series of discussions between noted author Lawrence Weschler and Irwin, providing a lively account of what Irwin has playfully termed "a sculpture in the form of a garden aspiring to be art." The text revolves around four garden walks: extended conversations in which the artist explains the critical choices he made - from plant materials to steel - in the creation of a living work of art that has helped to redefine what a modern garden can and should be. This updated edition features new photography of the Central Garden in a smaller, more accessible format.

Lawrence Weschler was a staff writer at The New Yorker for over twenty years. His many books include 'Seeing Is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees: Over Thirty Years of Conversations with Robert Irwin', 'True to Life: Twenty-Five Years of Conversations with David Hockney', 'Mr. Wilson's Cabinet of Wonder', and most recently, 'And How are You, Dr. Sacks? A Biographical Memoir of Oliver Sacks'.
