Out of Now: The Lifeworks of Tehching Hsieh

Out of Now is the first major publication on the extraordinary and influential Taiwanese-American artist Tehching Hsieh. In the vibrant Manhattan art scene of the late 1970s and early 1980s, Tehching Hsieh made an exceptional series of artworks: five separate one-year-long performances that were unprecedented in their use of physical difficulty over extreme durations and in their absolute conception of art and life as simultaneous processes. Out of Now is the first extensive critical account of these remarkable works. Adrian Heathfield’s astute meditation is complemented by an intensive exchange with the artist and a set of letters from leading art theorists Peggy Phelan and Carol Becker, and the internationally acclaimed artists Marina Abramovic, Santiago Sierra, and Tim Etchells.

Live Art Development Agency and The MIT Press, 2009, 384 pages, 173 colour and 140 black and white photographs throughout, 24.5cm x 32cm.
