Interlock : art, conspiracy, and the shadow worlds of Mark Lombardi by Patricia Goldstone( )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the fateful month of March 2000, shortly after opening a hugely successful show in New York that unveiled the more nefarious financial connections of Presidential candidate George W. Bush, the hugely ambitious Conceptual artist Mark Lombardi was found hanged in his studio, an apparent suicide. With museums lining up to buy his work, and the fame he had sought relentlessly at last within his reach, speculation about whether his death was suicide or murder has titillated the art world ever since. Lombardi was an enigma who was at once a compulsive truth-teller and a cunning player of the art game, a political operative and a stubborn independent, a serious artist and a Merry Prankster, a metaphysicist if not a scientist. Lombardi's spidery, elusive diagrams describing the evolution of the shadow-banking industry from a decades-old alliances between intelligence agencies, banking, government and organized crime, may have made him unique in art history as the only artist whose primary subject, the CIA, has turned around and studied him and his art work. Exhaustively researched, this is the first comprehensive biography of this immensely contradictory and brilliantly original artist. "Goldstone has impressively mined the artist's archives and interviewed many who knew him, dutifully recording all their contradictory gossip."--Kirkus "This isn't a story about an artist. This is a story about something more deep and meaningful ... This book is very well-researched, it's very detailed." --Forward Thinking "Goldstone is a deft guide to her subject, managing to write up all of his conspiracy research without making him sound like a loon, while also providing a thorough examination of the art scene in Houston and New York." --Bookslut "The first major book about the artist ..." --Newsweek "Patricia Goldstone has written the first comprehensive biography of the conceptual artist ... which is full of details from those who were closest to him: family, friends, colleagues, and past loves. Goldstone weaves US historical records into the course of the artist's life, citing scandals, political intrigue, and economic turbulence along the way." --Artnet

Making the world safe for tourism by Patricia Goldstone( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past hundred years tourism has evolved into the world's biggest business, and few countries today question the common wisdom that the road to economic development is paved with tourist dollars. Yet questions should be raised, Patricia Goldstone argues in this book on the social and political impacts of tourism. She examines for the first time the close connections between business and politics as government and industry leaders work together to reengineer political trouble spots into tourist destinations in places like Ireland, Turkey, and Cuba. She also probes the impact of tourism on diverse cultures."--Jacket
