The Artist project
T Campbell & C Noey
An excellent resource from The Metropolitan Museum of Art. See and hear Edmund de Waal on a Ming Dynasty jug, Nan Goldin on Julia Margaret Cameron’s photos, and Eric Fischl on Max Beckmann’s Beginning in a fabulous and free online resource that accompanies this book at http://artistproject.metmuseum.org . Artists have long been stimulated and motivated by the work of those who came before them, sometimes, centuries before them. Interviews with 120 international contemporary artists discussing works from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection that spark their imagination to shed new light on artmaking, museums, and the creative process. Images of the artworks appear alongside images of the contemporary artists’ work, allowing readers to discover a rich web of visual connections that spans cultures and millennia.
