Interview of the day: Lawrence Weschler & Tara Donovan
Lawrence Weschler, who evidently possesses the "genius grant" midas touch, recently interviewed artist Tara Donovan for Design Observer. The two also collaborated on a book about Donovan's art.
W: Did they know you were an artist at the time?
D: No. Nobody knew I was an artist. I did finally work up the nerve to introduce myself to Chuck. He was on the board of the foundation that had awarded me a workspace, and he subsequently came to the open studio, liked my work, and ended up nominating me for a Tiffany grant.
