Overview

Not only was Frank O'Hara (1926-1966) one of the most important American poets of his generation, he was also intimately involved with the art world of the 1950s and 1960s, a time when New York had become the cultural capital of the world. As an associate curator at the Museum of Modern Art, O'Hara organized a series of important exhibitions, notably of the work of Franz Kline and of Robert Motherwell.
In Memory of My Feelings: Frank O'Hara and American Art
explores this key period in modern art by presenting artists who were associated with O'Hara and whose seminal works are reflected in his poetry.

Featuring over 80 works by twenty-three artists, the book focuses on works closely tied to specific poems by Frank O'Hara, notably Jasper Johns's
In Memory of My Feelings—Frank O'Hara
and Grace Hartigan's Oranges.
Included are direct collaborations between O'Hara and various artists such as Joe Brainard, Norman Bluhm, and Larry Rivers, as well as portraits of the poet by Elaine de Kooning and Alex Katz. Franz Kline, Alice Neel, and Joan Mitchell are some of the other artists highlighted.

The book is a timely re-examination of the relationship between art and poetry at this crucial moment in American art. It also offers new insights into the charismatic figure of Frank O'Hara and his world.

The exhibition,
In Memory of My Feelings: Frank O'Hara and American Art
, will be at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, from July 11 to November 14, 1999; at The Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, Ohio, January 28 to April 16, 2000; and the Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, New York, in May, 2000.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Co-published with the U. of California Press in conjunction with a 1999 exhibition at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (and scheduled for other venues). Curator Ferguson supplies an extended essay situating O'Hara (1926-1966) as one of the most important poets of his generation who was deeply involved in the New York art world during the 1950s. From Ferguson's essay: "This book is not...a study of his poetry. Nor is it a biographical study. Its aim, rather, is to use the charismatic figure of O'Hara as a lens through which to take another look at the most mythologized period in American art." The works represented include art by O'Hara as well as by the many artists with whom he had profound relationships. ( shows a second ISBN from the Museum: 0-91435-769-7, though it's nowhere on the book.) Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Bart Schneider
In Memory of My Feelings: Frank O'Hara and American Art is the title of an exhibition that just closed at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. Fortunately, the accompanying publication, a sumptuous collaboration between the museum and the University of California Press, is a fine consolation for missing the show.
The Hungry Mind Review
Internet Bookwatch
In Memory Of My Feelings is a collection which examines contemporary artist Frank O'Hara and his influence on American art, providing an excellent catalog of both his works and portraits of O'Hara as presented by his contemporary artists. Color pictures on almost every page accompany a scholarly survey of his life, times, and the art circles he worked with. An excellent catalog.

    In Memory of My Feelings: Frank O'Hara and American Art: A Review

    This is a very good book if you are a fan of Frank O'Hara and the time and art that surrounded him. It is an excellent critique of the artists' influence on him and vice versa. However if you were looking for a book on his poetry, this is not it.
