Established in 2000 by the Martin Bucksbaum Family Foundation and the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Bucksbaum Award is presented biennially to an artist living and working in the U.S. “whose work demonstrates a singular combination of talent and imagination.”

A Decade in Conversation introduces each of the recipients—video artist Paul Pfeiffer, who often works with found footage; Irit Batsry, an artist specializing in video and installation pieces; Raymond Pettibon, whose acerbic and darkly satirical drawings critique contemporary culture; Mark Bradford, who specializes in abstract collage work and painting; and Omer Fast, known for exploring the possibilities of cinema. Featuring interviews with the artists and compelling illustrations and installation views, this book presents fascinating details about the ways the Bucksbaum award winners are shaping contemporary art today.
