Literary Nonfiction. Art. The art world and all the people it encompasses have daily lives that are structured in one way or another by art. But how is it structured? And how do they perceive any one slice of their art life? New York based Holly Crawford, the author of Critical Conversations in a Limo, invited anyone in the art world to answer the question, How would you describe seven days living within the art world? No parameters were given or template to follow. This expanded edition features entries from over 40 different artists and creatives as they pull back the curtain to reveal hardships, vulnerabilities and the banality of life in the arts. Each chapter presents a personal account of the contributor's intimacy with art—and the disillusionment, poignancy and success that comes with it during a week.
