Hello We Were Talking about Hudson

Steve Lafreniere

Commemorating the unconventional gallerist, featuring interviews with collaborators and friends such as Dennis Cooper, Charles Ray, Kay Rosen, Tony Tasset and David Sedaris

Neither a comprehensive oral history nor a biography, this reader is an intimate collection of anecdotes, reflections and musings that cohere to form a narrative portrait of a complex man and the vehicle through which he focused his artistic energy and convictions. The man in question is the visionary "artists' dealer" behind the revered Feature Inc. gallery--the mononymous Hudson (1950-2014). The gallery, which opened and ran from 1984 to 1988 in Chicago, and then in New York City from 1988 to 2014, showcased the early work of many now-prominent artists, such as Raymond Pettibon, Kay Rosen, Vincent Fecteau, Takashi Murakami, Nancy Shaver and Jeff Koons.
Presented here are over 30 interviews with Hudson's artists, collectors, colleagues and friends. The book also includes additional selected written remembrances and dozens of images, many shared for the first time. Published on the 10th anniversary of Hudson's death, this book is a record of Hudson's resounding cultural impact.
