This book accompanied an exhibition of immersive installations at ICA Boston.  

The desire to collect objects and images of personal significance, and to make connections between them, is a nearly universal human experience. For centuries, artists have collected artworks, along with diverse cultural artifacts and natural materials, as vital sources of inspiration and to create highly individualised models of their world. The Artist’s Museum begins with this impulse to collect and connect, bringing together large-scale installations, photography, film, and videos that employ artworks from the past as material in the present, animating existing artworks, images, and histories to reveal art’s unexpected relationships and affinities. Each of the artists in The Artist’s Museum reimagines the lives of artworks and charts recurring forms and themes across cultures and history. They tweak the language of museum display and organisation to engage a variety of disciplines and subjects, from dance, music, and design to gender, sexuality, and technology.

Among the artists included are Rosa Barba, Carol Bove, Anna Craycroft, Christian Marclay, Mark Leckey, Pierre Leguillon, Rosemarie Trockel, Goshka Macuga, and Sara VanDerBeek.

Essays offer new scholarship, extensive documentation and analysis of each artist's works, and a compendium of historical exhibitions and artworks that serve as important precedents for the exhibition."
