Kertess, Klaus, Roni Horn and Adam Phillips. MATTHEW BARNEY: The Drawings. 243 pages, including 150 color plates. 4to, boards. New York, Skira/Rizzoli in association with Morgan Library & Museum, 2013.
The drawing exhibition that opens at the Morgan this week is Matthew Barney's first museum show of works on paper. It covers his entire career, from the late 1980s to 2011. The catalogue reproduces these in a handsome demi-chemise binding (the signatures are bound separately in red cloth and are independent of the spine, but the back is bound in).
A selection of storyboards from his videos incorporates items from the Morgan Library collections, and an interview with the artist that closes with his advice for how to avoid talking to your seat mate on an airplane.
