The living room of Rashid Johnson's Manhattan home showcases a bevy of pieces by Brazilian modernists, including two 1954 loose-mantle armchairs by Joaquim Tenreiro, and a Racket Screen 1 by Fernando and Humberto Campana, who also designed the wicker chair in the foreground.
A series of bright colors and geometrical shapes fill the kitchen of Tauba Auerbach's Brooklyn home. A 2008 light sculpture by Andy Coolquitt hangs above the table with a range of objects lying atop, including candles by Andrej Urem, salt and pepper mills by Muuto, and a Memphis-inspired table lamp. The colorful work on paper is by Kamau Amu Patton. The red and yellow tote bags are by fiber artist Doug Johnston.
In the study of American conceptual artist Glenn Ligon, a 1966 cardboard work by Cady Noland hangs on the right-hand wall, above a collection of books and framed pieces. (We also spy a Stool 60 by Aalto at the far left.)
Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and his wife purchased a former church rectory in New York's East Village in 1978—years before the art scene exploded in the neighborhood. A series of family portraits by fellow artist Francesco Clemente hang above a reading area furnished with well-worn LC50 armchairs by Le Corbusier, a bench coffee table by George Nelson, and a rare Hans Wegner swivel chair. The side table to the left is a piece by conceptual artist Joseph Kosuth.
A sculptural "totem" by Ettore Sottsass presides over a corner of a dining area, near two Jasper Johns prints and a Noguchi-like lantern, in the home of painter Francesco Clemente.
Swiss-born artist Ugo Rondinone converted an abandoned Romanesque church in New York's Harlem neighborhood—a sublime place he now calls home. In the plywood-outfitted kitchen, a bookshelf displays a series of his scholar's rocks. "They inspire me," the artist says.
At his Tribeca loft, artist Will Cotton displays his large 2012 plaster cake sculpture, Against Nature, in the street-facing window. Two Chandigarh chairs by Le Corbusier, a Tulip table by Eero Saarinen, and a series of wire chairs by Harry Bertoia furnish the space.
These are just a sampling of the 25 homes featured in Artists Living With Art by Stacey Goergen and Amanda Benchley, with photography by Oberto Gill and a foreword by Robert Storr, out this month from Abrams Books.
