Compiled and Edited by James Cahill

What if you could sit down with your favorite artist and ask them anything you like—Life? Work? Inspiration? Based on multiple new interviews and archival material from a huge roster of artists, this book does exactly that. Is art a ‘career,’ a vocation, or something else entirely? Do you need a studio or a dealer, and how do you find one? Are artists too competitive? How do they come up with ideas, and what is the point of the private view? Does financial success—or the lack of it—change you? Are there advantages to getting older? Should you ever read the reviews? Can an artist ever retire?

Encompassing every stage of an artist’s life—from early works to debut shows and mid- and late-career stages—this book allows artists to answer, or ponder, all these key questions.
