About the Author

Lisa Le Feuvre is a curator and writer on art and Head of Sculpture Studies at the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, England. She was co-curator, with Tom Morton, of 'British Art Show 7: In the Days of the Comet' (2010-11).


"This brilliant collection puts paid to the notion that the creative act - the inscrutable conjuring of something from nothing - is the dominant mode through which art comes into being. Lisa Le Feuvre's revision lends substance to art's emergence from inarticulate and unforgiving conditions, in order to position failure as one of the crucial obligations of modernism." - Andrew Renton, Director of MFA Curating Programme, Goldsmiths College, London "...[T]he book does what this kind of project should: it introduces you to unfamiliar ideas, authors, and practices; offers new approaches; and raises new questions. Presumably, it's intended for people who make or write about art, but you certainly don't have to be an artist to appreciate new ways of thinking about failure and, not coincidentally, success." - Publishers Weekly
