Marilyn Minter : pretty/dirty by Marilyn Minter( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marilyn Minter is well known for her glossy, hyper-realistic paintings, photographs and video-works: seductive images that borrow the language of fashion and advertising photography, exploring the boundaries of desire, sensuality, and body-anxiety in the age of consumption. Close up images of mouths, feet, splashes and puddles, rendered in high gloss enamel on sheets of metal, seem to emanate from their surfaces and question the pathology of glamour. Produced in conjunction with the first major major museum retrospective on her work, Marilyn Minter: Pretty / Dirty examines every period of the artist's storied 40 year career, from her beginnings with the controversial "Porno" paintings, initially rejected by the critical establishment, to her later large-scale, photorealistic works and assumption as one of today's most influential artists. Major essays from the exhibition's curators, Contemporary Art Museum of Houston director Bill Arning, and Museum of Contemporary Art Denver curator Elissa Auther, examine the trajectory of Minter's development, and her continued engagement with the political debate over the representation of the female body. Texts from a wide variety of musicians, artists, writers and curators speak to Minter's wide-ranging influence and significance: reflections from the likes of artist K8 Hardy, musician and author Richard Hell, and poet Eileen Myles, as well as an artist interview with writer Linda Yablonsky. Fully illustrated with hundreds of full-color reproductions, and with a complete biography and bibliography, Marilyn Minter: Pretty / Dirty charts a new perspective on the career of this exciting and continually evolving artist."--Publisher's description
The essential Cindy Sherman by Catherine Morris( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and German and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cindy Sherman has had a profound influence on the artists of her generation. Alluring and repellent, her hilarious art treats issues of femininity, the role of women in society, sexuality, and the act of making photographs. In Sherman's portrayals of B-grade '50s and '60s Hollywood heroines, fashion models, and subjects from Old Masters paintings, she serves as subject and object of her own work. Sherman's newer work catapults artificial body parts, decapitated dolls, and grisly scenes of violence to the fore. Do you know why: We are so engaged, amused, and horrified by Cindy Sherman's images? Sherman's photographs of herself are not really self-portraits? Sherman's photographs are Rorschachs for the end of the 20th century?

E.A.T. - Experiments in Art and Technology by Experiments in Art and Technology( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Museum der Moderne Salzburg mounts the first comprehensive retrospective of the activities of Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.), a unique association of engineers and artists who made history in the 1960s and 1970s. Artists like Robert Rauschenberg and Robert Whitman teamed up with Billy Klüver, a visionary engineer at Bell Telephone Laboratories, and his colleague Fred Waldhauer to launch a groundbreaking initiative that would realize works of art in unprecedented collaborative ventures. In light of the rapid technological developments of the period, the group aimed to put an art into practice that would employ cutting-edge technology. Starting in the early 1960s, Klüver worked with artists including Jean Tinguely, Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns and Yvonne Rainer. Like some artists of his time, he was interested in the social implications of novel technologies and believed that the marriage of art and science had to take place on a practical and physical level. The meeting between artists and engineers, the members of E.A.T. hoped, would produce works that would not have been possible without the special expertise of trained technologists. The art would conversely also inspire the engineers to think in new directions and help shape the future evolution of technology."--Museum der Moderne Salzburg website, viewed October 28, 2015
