Item description for Interviews By Mike Kelley: 1986-2004 by Mike Kelley & John C. Welchman...
What do Mike Kelley and his cronies and sometime collaborators Jim Shaw, Paul McCarthy, and Tony Oursler talk about when they talk about art? You'll have to crack this book to find out, but expect a heady mix of pop culture, sex, violence, politics, and, as always, a strong dose of humor. This volume brings together for the first time Kelley's major interviews with those artists and others over the past 18 years. Kelley is naturally a provocative commentator on his own work and the work of others, but he's also an informed and serious student of his interviewees' oeuvres and asks questions that explore the soul of artistic imagination. Surrealism, the 60s, and institutional cowardice provide fodder for these fascinating conversations.

More About Mike Kelley & John C. Welchman
Mike Kelley, one of the most controversial, prolific and influential figures in contemporary art, was born in 1954 in Detroit, Michigan, and earned a Bachelors degree from the University of Michigan and a Masters from California Institute of the Arts. His work, often wickedly humorous and drawing on both high art and the vernacular with distinctively American iconography, ranges across media such as drawing, painting, sculpture, music, performance, writing and video projects, the last often in collaboration with artists such as Paul McCarthy, Raymond Pettibon and Tony Oursler. In 1993, The Whitney Museum of American Art held a major retrospective of his work. He lives in Los Angeles, and is a member of the graduate faculty at Art Center College of Design, Pasadena.
