The CCA Wattis Institute in San Francisco dedicates year long seasons of discussions and public events to a single artist. In 2014-15, Joan Jonas (born 1936) was "on our mind." This book brings together essays from writers, curators, art historians and artists that focus on a single work, from Jonas' earliest films through her installation for the US Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale. The book also contains excerpts from readings and public lectures, and images by some of the other artists whose work was evoked in public and private conversation. Contributors include Jacqueline Francis, Renée Green, Quinn Latimer, Sarah Lehrer-Graiwer, Patricia Maloney, Elizabeth Mangini, Judith Rodenbeck and Lynne Tillman.
