Description - The Artist Project by The Metropolitan Museum of Art
"The Artist Project is the latest step among The Met's recent strides to better integrate contemporary art into its historical pantheon." -Art NewsArtists 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 shed new light on art-making, 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.
