Artists And The Rothko Chapel
Artists and the Rothko Chapel celebrates the legacy of the Rothko Chapel in Houston and globally since its founding in 1971. It features recent work by four contemporary artists who have drawn inspiration from the Chapel--Sam Gilliam, Sheila Hicks, Shirazeh Houshiary, and Byron Kim--and illustrates the 1975 exhibition Marden, Novros, Rothko: Painting in the Age of Actuality shown at Rice University. The volume includes interviews with Brice Marden and David Novros, statements from the artists about their work's relationship to the Chapel, and reflections from local figures on spirituality, identity, and equality. With new photography of the installations and of the recently restored Chapel, this book is a testament to the enduring impact of the non-denominational space Rothko created.
