"This written and illustrated volume pays tribute to both The Broad museum in Los Angeles and the significant contemporary art collection within it. For 40 years, Eli and Edye Broad have collected over 2,000 works, notable for both their depth and diversity. This book compiles the insights of cultural leaders, writers, critics and curators to highlight the scope of the artists featured in The Broad collections. Curated similarly to an exhibition, the combination of timeless pieces and modern essays offers the reader a unique pathway through the extensive Broad collections. Contributing authors include: Francesco Bonami, Annie Cohen-Solal, Donna De Salvo, John Elderfield, Siri Hustvedt, Pico Iyer, Greil Marcus, Marla Prather, Nancy Princenthal, Luc Sante, Katy Siegel, Franklin Sirmans, Greg Tate, Lynne Tillman, and John Waters"-- Provided by publisher.
