Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now


In more than thirty pieces from the last decade, the well-known arts critic Bonnie Marranca addresses issues in performance, media, visual art, and writing in the work of artists who include Joan Jonas, Caryl Churchill, Robert Wilson, Alvis Hermanis, Laurie Anderson, and Etel Adnan. Subjects as wide-ranging as the catastrophic imagination, performance and drawing, virtual reality, contemporary culture, art and the spiritual, and ecology shape the central preoccupations of Timelines. The volume also showcases the author's longtime interest in new critical forms, such as the image/essay and writing in the landscape; interviews with her previously unpublished in the U.S.; and reflections on the loss of theatre figures Sam Shepard and Maria Irene Fornes.
