The art world and all the people it encompasses have daily lives that are structured in one way or another by art. But how so? And how do they perceive any one slice of their art life? New York–based artist/critic Holly Crawford, and author of Critical Conversations in a Limo, invited anyone in the art world to answer the question, 'How would you describe seven days living within the art world?' No parameters were given or template to follow. The result is a 270 page book, with text and images, that pulls back the curtain to reveal the hardships, humor, vulnerabilities and the banality of life in the arts. Uniquely printed on black matte paper, each chapter presents a personal account of the contributor's intimacy with art—and the disillusionment, poignancy and success that comes with it during a week. Contributors include: Martha Wilson, ORLAN, Ischa Tallieu, Brian Curtin, Claude Closky, Fernando Galán, Jonathon Keats, and many more.
