When Fountainheads Collide: Lawrence Weschler on Robert Irwin & David Hockney

On the occasion of the publication of his braided biographical volumes, ‘Seeing is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees: Thirty Years of Conversations with Robert Irwin” and “True to Life: Twenty-Five Years of Conversations with David Hockney,” longtime New Yorker contributor Lawrence Weschler describes what it has been like, lo these many years, to be ponging back and forth between these two giants of contemporary art, who disagree about almost everything, in the profoundest of ways, and yet have never actually spoken with each other.
