The Brooklyn Rail | Tell Me Something Good

The artists and writers behind The Brooklyn Rail celebrate the release of a new interview anthology.

Panelists, from left to right:

Jonas Mekas
Shirin Neshat
Lucas Zwirner
Shahzia Sikander
Phong Bui

Since its inception, co-founder and artistic director Phong Bui and the Rail’s contributors have interviewed over four hundred artists for The Brooklyn Rail. This volume brings together for the first time a selection of sixty of the most influential and seminal interviews with artists ranging from Richard Serra and Brice Marden, to Alex Da Corte and House of Ladosha. While each interview is important in its own right, offering a perspective on the life and work of a specific artist, collectively they tell the story of a journal that has grown during one of the more diverse and surprising periods in visual art.

This panel discussion, led by Phong Bui and editor Lucas Zwirner, features three of the artists included in the new anthology: Jonas Mekas, Shirin Neshat, and Shahzia Sikander.
