Published by Soberscove Press (2009)
In April of 1950, about two dozen of the artists who came to be known as the Abstract Expressionists met for a series of discussions about their own work as well as about the modern scene. The transcript of A Artists’ Sessions at Studio 35 (1950) still pulses with the heated discussions around basic artistic issues like titling, process, relationship to history, community, and professionalism. Often referenced, but difficult to access, this series of closed meetings allows readers fly-on-the-wall access to the artists’ discussions.
