From the Back Cover:

The essays and interviews in this book highlight the work of contemporary artists around the world whose work is directly inspired by literature. The artists featured in The Storytellers translate the stories of legendary authors into magnificent works of art. The exhibition was initially inspired by Latin American literature and its distinct tradition of storytelling. Authors such as Jorge Luis Borges, Pablo Neruda, Gabriel Garcia Márquez, Octavio Paz and Reinaldo Arenas have all had a tremendous influence on the development of literature and poetry both in their home countries and internationally. Through the years, their stories and poems have provided a valuable source of inspiration not only for other authors, but also for artists. More than every before, the impact of literature is also seen within the realm of international contemporary art. While the inspirational seed for this exhibition was planted in Latin America, it has grown and blossomed far beyond its roots, reaching across geographical, linguistic, and creative borders. The result is an exhibition that features contemporary artists from around the world whose work is also inspired by authors such as James Joyce, William Blake, Karl Marx, Virginia Woolf, Italo Calvino, and Arthur Rimbaud. Featuring the work of: Georges Adéagbo, Liliana Angulo, Mónica Bengoa, Milena Bonilla, Monika Bravo, Ryan Brown, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Eloisa Cartonera, William Cordova, Marilá Dardot, Alfredo Jaar, William Kentridge, Lobato & Guimaraes, Cristina Lucas, Fabio Morais, Ernesto Neto, Ulf Nilsen, Rosana Ricalde, Eder Santos, Tracey Snelling, Valeska Soares, Elida Tessler, Sergio Vega, Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries, and Nina Yuen.
