Bird, Jon (2015) A New York story. In: Leon Golub: Bite your tongue [Exhibition Catalogue]. Enderby, Emma, Blanchflower, Melissa and Larner, Melissa, eds. Koenig Books, London. pbk-ISBN 9783863357184. [Book Section]


The survey exhibition of the American figurative painter Leon Golub – his first in a London public institution since 2000 – highlights key aspects of the artist’s oeuvre from the 1950s until his death in 2004. This publication includes an essay by the exhibition’s curator, Emma Enderby, charting the trajectory of Golub’s life and practice through the selection of works in this exhibition, which are illustrated in full. The Serpentine has also invited artists and writers to contribute texts and memories of Golub. Artist Julie Ault selects excerpts from a 1994 interview between Golub and Spero to focus on the inextricable relationship between their practices. From their first meeting in 1984 to watching the attacks of September 11 unfold, art historian Jon Bird’s text records his friendship with Golub and his experiences of staying with the couple in New York. This is accompanied by ephemera from Bird’s archive. [...]
