Skirts

Texts by Rachel Silveri, Deborah Solomon, Michaëla Mohrmann
Design by Other Means

Made for Arlene Shechet’s solo exhibition Skirts, this richly illustrated catalogue features color reproductions, including details and installation views, of recent assemblages by the New York-based sculptor. 

Shechet discusses her practice in two new interviews alongside an essay by scholar Rachel Silveri, who explores the lively work in conversation with and as a feminist intervention in the history of modern art. The considered approach to design, including the use of a variety of paper types, nods to Shechet’s own engagement with material.

In Shechet’s work, surfaces change. That which is hidden becomes revealed. Something seen becomes something else.

If you can open your heart and mind to this inanimate thing, you can reach out across divides to other humans…I think art does create empathy in that way. Maybe that’s what it is—it’s a language of empathy and meaning.
