Girls' night out by Elizabeth Armstrong( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Girls' Night Out brings together the work of an international and intergenerational group of women artists whose works in photography and video reflect a new approach to issues of femininity and identity. The artists in Girls' Night Out create works that possess a quasi- documentary feel and a directness of approach as they engage with such classical art genres as self-portraiture, portraiture (especially featuring young women in the passage from girlhood to adulthood), and landscape. Some of their shared themes include provocative inquiries into youth culture, new notions of beauty, ethnographic techniques mixed with fashion devices, and an interest in journalistic aspects of the media. Formally rigorous and aesthetically resolved, this seemingly traditional imagery is infused by lyricism and psychological complexity. The historical context for Girls' Night Out is found in the photography, film, and performance art of the 1970s and 1980s, which addressed social and political themes, often through provocative satire or irony. The open, fluid approach to gender and sexuality evident in the works in Girls' Night Out is informed by the pioneering conceptual and aesthetic stance of earlier artists but also represents a significant rupture with it. This new work confidently explores female identity without the need to challenge or critique feminine archetypes. The resulting imagery is as uncertain, contradictory, and filled with possibility as the adolescents these artists often portray." (résumé éditeur)
Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle by Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Orange County Museum of Art was pleased to be the only West Cost venue of a solo exhibition of new video work by Chicago-based artist and recent MacArthur Foundation Fellow, Inigo Manglano-Ovalle. Over the last decade Manglano-Ovalle has emerged as one of his generation's most compelling, socially-engaged and celebrated young artists. He has created a body of work that has challenged social arrangements, investigated global politics, and explored cultural identity. The exhibition was accompanied by this 72-page catalogue that takes as its focus Manglano-Ovalle's recent video-based installations. In addition to an essay by exhibition curator Irene Hofmann that places these new works into the context of Manglano-Ovalle's career, this catalogue features an essay by west coast-based art historian Anna Novakov, Ph. D. and an interview with Manglano-Ovalle conducted by Michael Rush, Director of the Palm Beach Institute of Contemporary Art. The catalogue is beautifully illustrated with full color documentation of each of Manglano-Ovalle's recent video installations
