David Chickey

David Chickey, founder and publisher of Radius Books in Santa Fe, will talk about the history of this unusual enterprise, which publishes affordable monographs (often around $60) about notable artists, both from the Southwest and elsewhere. Since starting Radius in 2007, Chickey has worked with the Doug Wheeler, Lee Friedlander, Marlene Dumas, Shirin Neshat, and many others, his main contributions being an obsessive attention to materials and the way he attempts to lay bare the artists’ creative process. Chickey will tell us about the nonprofit aspects of the business, how and why he decides on the artists, and how the future looks for this specialized sort of venture.

Events are free, but please RSVP to ann@thewrightcontemporary.com
