Join us at 48 Walker Street to celebrate the publication of The Sum of It, Alison Elizabeth Taylor's first comprehensive monograph, published by Addison Gallery of American Art and DelMonico Books | DAP. Enjoy readings by contributors Naomi Fry and Lynne Tillman and get your copy signed by the artist.
Featuring insightful essays by leading curators and writers, this fully illustrated publication traces the evolution of the artist’s work from early paintings that explore space, line, color, and form within the limited palette afforded by the grains and tones of natural woods to vividly colored “hybrids” that layer marquetry, paint, and photographic imagery, to brand new and increasingly complex works inspired by the resilience of the artist’s urban neighborhood and community during the pandemic.
Taylor's monograph is published on the occasion of Alison Elizabeth Taylor: The Sum of It, a major traveling survey exhibition at the Des Moines Art Center in Des Moines, IA, which will be up from October 15, 2022, through January 15, 2023. The show travels to the Addison Gallery of American Art, Andover, MA in February 2023.
This event is free and open to the public.
