Dana Schutz: Between Us (Louisiana Museum of Modern Art)
Malou Wedel Bruun, Anders Kold (Eds.)
Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, 2023
With a vast selection of works from the last two decades and Polaroids of the artist’s studio, this mid-career catalog provides unique perspective on Schutz’s oeuvre and methods
Dana Schutz is one of the great figurative painters of our time—an eminent storyteller who depicts people in complex and often gigantic compositions. For two decades now, Schutz (born 1976, USA) has distinguished herself with her tremendous narrative power, vigorous sense of color and ability to merge the gruesome, grotesque, absurd and comic.
This richly illustrated catalog presents paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture, providing an overview of Schutz’s entire career to date. Alongside a thorough analysis of Schutz’s work by curator Anaël Pigeat, it presents a studio visit described in detail by art critic (and friend of the artist) Jarrett Earnest, whose text is accompanied by Polaroids of the studio that unfold Schutz’s working methods. Also featured is a conversation between curator Anders Kold and the artist, and a poetic essay by award-winning author Lauren Groff.
Foreword by Poul Erik Tøjner, Anders Kold. Text by Jarrett Earnest, Lauren Groff, Anaël Pigeat. Interview by Anders Kold.
