In "Art Is Life," Jerry Saltz, a Pulitzer Prize winner and influential author, provides readers with a compelling and insightful survey of the contemporary art world during turbulent times.

Drawing on his two decades of work and cultural observation, Saltz examines the transformative moments that have shaped the art landscape, from the cultural reset of 9/11 to ongoing social crises.

The book features Saltz's appraisals of visionary artists such as Kara Walker, David Wojnarowicz, and Jasper Johns, as well as provocateurs like Jeff Koons and Marina Abramovic.

Saltz also celebrates landmark works like the Obama portraits by Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald, offering a blend of candor and conviction that emphasizes the importance of fearless artists in capturing and challenging our shared cultural experiences.

"Art Is Life" is a captivating exploration of art's role as a mirror and voice of the times.
