New Books Celebrate Robyn O’Neil, Misty Keasler, and Walter Hopps

Robyn O'Neil

Walter Hopps

Earlier this year, artist and writer Anne Doran and New Yorker fiction editor Deborah Treisman published The Dream Colony: A Life in Art, a book about the life and work of Menil Collection founding director and curator Walter Hopps. Pieced together from interviews and oral histories, the book chronicles Hopps’ time as a dealer, curator, and maybe even an art thief. Tomorrow, September 15, at 7PM, the Menil is hosting a conversation about The Dream Colony featuring Treisman, Doran, and museum director Rebecca Rabinow. A book signing will follow the talk.

Robyn O'Neil: 20 Years of Drawings

Also this Saturday, from 6-8PM, Talley Dunn Gallery is hosting a book release party for Robyn O’Neil’s new monograph Robyn O’Neil: 20 Years of Drawings. Published by Archon Projects, the 184-page book features more than 100 drawings by O’Neil and an essay by Museum of Fine Arts, Houston curator Alison de Lima Greene. O’Neil spent her formative years in Texas and graduated in 2000 from Texas A&M University-Commerce with a BFA. She lived in Houston from 2002 to 2011. For more book tour dates, see below.

Archon Projects has also published a book of Misty Keasler’s photographs in conjunction with her upcoming exhibition at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. For a list of upcoming book tour dates, see below.
