Summary

The first publication about Dick Polich and the impact of his foundries on contemporary art since the 1960s, documenting his working relationships with Roy Lichtenstein, Nancy Graves, Jeff Koons, and more.

Dick Polich tells the story of the man who founded Tallix in 1970 and revolutionized the world of American fine art foundries. As an art fabricator, Polich typically remains behind the scenes. This publication, the catalogue for the exhibition at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, SUNY New Paltz, explores the history and processes of Polich and his foundries Tallix, Polich Art Works, and Polich Tallix, from the 1960s to the present. Contents include an art historical survey by Daniel Belasco, a personal account of the craft of the foundry by Dick Polich, and new statements about working with Polich by artists Rona Pondick, Joel Shapiro, Tom Otterness, Janine Antoni, Martin Puryear, and Jeff Koons. The Dorsky Museum exhibition is the first to examine Dick Polich’s influence on contemporary art.

Daniel Belasco is the Curator of Exhibitions and Programs at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, SUNY New Paltz. Dick Polich is the managing director of Polich Tallix, Inc. and has been a leader in the field of industrial and art foundries since the 1950s. Sara J. Pasti is Neil C. Trager Director of the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, SUNY New Paltz.
