'Molesworth remains a rare breed: a curator who can actually write.' - Art in America

An illustrated reader featuring a collection of essays from trailblazing curator and writer Helen Molesworth - the first book of her collected writings

Over the past three decades, Helen Molesworth's singular voice and lively curatorial vision has established her as one of the most dynamic and influential voices in the art world. This generously illustrated reader - the first ever collection of her writings - presents 24 essays from the past 30 years, gathered from exhibition catalogs and art publications such as Artforum, Documents, frieze, and October.

The volume opens with a new essay that lays out Molesworth's belief in art's unique capacity for merging knowledge and feeling. It also includes new critical and reflective commentary on her past writing, an innovative approach that will position Open Questions as an indispensable volume for viewing and thinking about contemporary art for generations to come.
