A New Therapy2020
‘A New Therapy’, a dialogue between Nicola Vassell and Rashid Johnson published in ‘Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary: The Commissions Book’ (Sternberg Press, 2020), a vivid documentation of TBA21’s commissioning practice and the ethos of the foundation over the last 18 years. The conversation takes a deep dive into works by Rashid that are in TBA21’s collection. We talk about how he feels as an artist right now and remedies for the future.
“This anthology of TBA21’s work over the past two decades is a guide book for the foundation’s future”— Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza, Chairwoman, TBA21 The Commissions Book, “reviews the processes and conditions which have led us to engage with certain political and social urgencies and environmental concerns. It hopefully presents a new understanding for what it means to collect produce and safeguard contemporary art.”— Daniela Zyman, co-editor and Chief Curator, TBA21
