About The Blog

The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts and Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis have joined together to create the Contemporary-Pulitzer blog which, for the first time, combines the perspectives of two separate institutions with differing missions within the same blog.


Offering alternating posts each day from the Pulitzer and Contemporary, the blog provides a candid look at the behind-the-scenes workings of both arts organizations.

Three Days in New York with Sean Landers

Last week I spent three days working with Sean Landers in his Chelsea studio, preparing the design for his upcoming catalog. The major monograph, produced in conjunction with his recent exhibition at the Contemporary, will focus on Sean’s work produced in the early nineties. In my three-day visit, we roughed in some 300+ pages of exhibition shots, individual works, and running quotations from Sean’s paintings, diaries, and prose.  The above picture was my view of the city looking up the Hudson River for those three days. Below is a picture from the back of the studio looking out the windows. You can see Sean and his two studio assistants, Allison and Cindy working away.

The studio is filled with bright natural light, which can make viewing work on the monitors difficult.  On the desk you can see a Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis baseball hat that was there before I arrived, and which serves as the official studio sun visor. On the monitor is the catalog in progress.

Tuesday evening when we were done working, we headed home along the High Line.  What a beautiful transformation, from a neglected elevated rail to city park.

Stay tuned for the catalog.  It will be our largest to date, weighing in at approximately 400 pages!

    What a fun ‘research’ trip.
