To accompany the full-scale exhibtion catalogue for Elizabeth Murray's retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art in October 2005, the Museum is also producing a matching artist's book. Since Murray's works often operate in three dimensions, this book will contain two pop-ups, one derived from an existing painting, the other from a drawing created especially for the book. Both pop-ups are to be designed by the accomplished paper engineer Bruce Foster in collaboration with the artist. The book will also show a selection of the preperatory sketches and other drawings that Murray makes to ceate these works. Robert Storr, organizer of the Murray retrospective, will contribute an introduction.
Robert Storr is the Rosalie Solow Professor of Modern Art, The Institute of Fine Arts, New York University and a former Senior Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art.
