Into the Pages of Ryan McGinley’s “Whistle for the Wind”



This month, Rizzoli published Ryan McGinley: Whistle for the Wind, the most comprehensive monograph on one of the most celebrated artists of the 21st century. In this first major monograph chronicling the entirety of the artist’s career, McGinley’s work is considered by three extraordinary figures: Chris Kraus, novelist and critic; John Kelsey, writer, artist and activist; and Gus Van Sant, the auteur filmmaker. Each attends—through the lens of their own rich insights—to various aspects of the artist’s work and creative process, offering in-depth and unique perspectives on McGinley’s work and import. A wonderful look at the archives of one of New York City’s most innovative artists, here we take a look at Mr. McGinley’s Whistle for the Wind.
