Bill Powers’s first nonfiction book, Interviews with Artists, collects twenty-two conversations with artists including George Condo, Rashid Johnson, Jeff Koons, Adam McEwen (whose painting graces the cover), and Ed Ruscha. Many of these interviews were originally published in Purple Fashion magazine (including those with Peter Beard, Dave Hickey, and Damien Hirst with Jay-Z), but several are published for the first time in this volume (Ryan McGinley, Tom Sachs, and Julian Schnabel). Discover what Kara Walker considers to be the first human artwork, read Dana Schutz’s recollections of drawing Barack Obama in person, and hear John Currin’s problem with bad reviews (“they’re usually right”).
