In a category all his own, Gaetano Pesce is widely considered one of the most important, and elusive, creative figures of the last half century.

Bridging numerous key art and design movements, while never belonging to any of them, Pesce’s singular practice has remained steadfastly provocative, defying convention, utility, and good taste. In this long overdue summary, Pesce looks back at his incomparable and wildly inventive career, recounting his life and practice to renowned design curator and critic Glenn Adamson.
