2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Seeing Is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees chronicles three decades of extraordinary conversation between Weschler and Light and Space master Irwin, taking us into the heart of what it can mean to be an artist." "The original dialogues extend from the surf and cars of Irwin's L.A. youth through his passion for abstract expressionism, past his decision to abandon studio work altogether, up to and including the 1977 Whitney Museum of American Art retrospective. This lavishly expanded new edition surveys many of Irwin's subsequent site-conditioned projects - in particular the spectacularly realized Central Garden at the Getty Museum (the subject of an epic battle with the site's principal architect, Richard Meier) and the path-breaking design that transformed an abandoned Hudson Valley factory into Dia's stellar new Beacon campus - enhancing what many had already considered the best-ever book on an artist."--BOOK JACKET
