Description - Pulse: Art, Healing & Transformation by Jessica Morgan

This book examines the complex relationship between art and therapy. Taking as its starting point the seminal work of Joseph Beuys and Lygia Clark as it relates to the development of an artistic practice that promotes curative effects, the catalogue examines the variety of ways in which these artists' work has influenced and directed subsequent generations. The catalogue concentrates on the work of contemporary artists at work over the past decade including Gretchen Bender and Bill T. Jones, Tania Bruguera, Cai Guo-Qiang, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Irene and Christine Hohenbuchler, Leonilson, Wolfgang Laib, David Medalla, Ernesto Neto, Hannah Wilke, and Richard Yarde. In addition to documenting all of the artists' work the essays will provide a theoretical, historical, and critical insight into this complex subject. Writers include Sander Gilman, author of many volumes on the relationship between art, science, and medicine and Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago; Sandra Alvarez de Toledo, a Paris-based author and curator; Thierry Davila, Curator of CAPC, Bordeaux and author of L'Art Medicine; Jessica Morgan, Curator of the exhibition; and Gwendolyn DuBois Shaw, professor of African American Studies at Harvard University.
