My Name is Dave: A Hymnal — PRICE ON REQUEST
This conceptual catalogue accompanies the exhibition To Speculate Darkly: Theaster Gates and Dave the Potter, April 16–August 1, 2010, at the Milwaukee Art Museum. The provocative installation features a gospel choir audio stream that engages the enigmatic, emotional works of poetry found on Drake’s pots. That theme is echoed in this catalog, which was designed in the style of a mid-century gospel hymnal, complete with original music scores.
Edited by Rebecca Zorach. Interview with the artist and Rebecca Zorach. Texts by Ethan W. Lasser and Dan S. Wang.
