Book Launch: Melissa Wyse and Kate Lewis present Artists in Residence: Seventeen Artists and Their Living Spaces, from Giverny to Casa Azul
In conversation with Sanaë Lemoine
Award-winning writer (and staff member at our sister store Yours Truly, Brooklyn!) Melissa Wyse and painter Kate Lewis take the virtual Greenlight stage to share their new book, Artists in Residence! This charming book explores the art and lives of seventeen artists, past and present, from Basquiat to Bourgeois, Matisse to Kahlo, and illuminates the connections between art, creativity, and the spaces of home. For the artists profiled here, a house or an apartment is not simply a place to eat and sleep; they transform everyday spaces into dynamic reflections of their individual artistic passions. This beautifully written and richly illustrated book offers a fascinating and inspiring blend of art history, interior design, and armchair travel. Artists in Residence points to the fascinating creative potency of interior spaces at a moment when people across the world are redefining their relationships with their homes. Sanaë Lemoine, author of The Margot Affair, joins Wyse and Lewis for an illuminating conversation on the dynamic and often unexamined roles that the home plays in the creative lives of artists.
