These influential, hard-to-obtain texts by the New Museum's founding director Marcia Tucker-many of which have never before been published-showcase her lifelong commitment to pushing the boundaries of curatorial practice and writing while rethinking inherited structures of power within and outside the museum. The volume serves as a rich resource, bringing together the only comprehensive bibliography of Tucker's writing and highlighting her critical attention to art's relationship to broader culture and politics. The book is divided into three sections: monographic texts on a selection of the visionary artists that Tucker championed, among them Bruce Nauman, Joan Mitchell, Richard Tuttle and Andres Serrano; exhibition essays from some of the formative group shows she organised, such as Anti-Illusion: Procedures/Materials (1969) and Bad Girls (1994), which expanded the canons of curating and art history; and other critical works, including lectures that interrogated museum practice, inequities of the art world and institutional responsibility. These texts attest to Tucker's tireless pursuit of questions related to difference, marginalisation, access and ethics, illuminating her significant impact on contemporary art discourse in her own time and demonstrating her lasting contributions to the field.
