Pierre Huyghe says that life is the core interest of his practice: “I’m interested in how to quantify the different variations of being alive…how to intensify the presence of things.” Many of his performance, film, and installation pieces employ a range of living creatures—insects, plants, animals, and human beings—in order to explore their behavior and interactions. These works become laboratories for articulating complex social phenomena, the precarious distinction between fiction and reality, and contemporary belief systems. In the 1990s, Huyghe became known best for his “post-production” technique, or the reuse of film and mass-media images; more recently, he has mounted…

An internationally acclaimed artist, activist, and writer, Jimmie Durham draws upon his Native American heritage to create potent works that challenge and deconstruct Western hegemony. Durham, a Cherokee, was involved in the U.S. Civil Rights Movement and served as a political organizer for the American Indian Movement.

This deeply troubling—and ultimately defining—betrayal remained a vivid memory for Bourgeois for the rest of her life. Later, she would study mathematics before eventually turning to art. She met Robert Goldwater, an American art historian, in Paris and they married…

(British, born 1949) Biography Tony Cragg is a British sculptor known for his exploration of unconventional materials, including plastic, fiberglass, bronze, and Kevlar. Craggs’ sculptures embody a frozen moment of movement, resulting in swirling abstractions, as seen in his work Point of View (2004). “I felt very free to use the plastic fragments I’d started using in ’77 in new forms,” he reflected. “That was almost a kind of punk gesture at the time, a little bit aimed against the pieties of Land Art, Minimalism, or whatever.” Born Anthony Douglas Cragg on April 9, 1949 in Liverpool, United Kingdom, Cragg…
