Robert Morris by Julia Bryan-Wilson( )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essays, an interview, and a roundtable discussion on the work of one of the most influential American artists of the postwar period. This October Files volume gathers essays, an interview, and a roundtable discussion on the work of Robert Morris, one of the most influential American artists of the postwar period. It includes a little-known text on dance by Morris himself and a never-before-anthologized but influential catalog essay by Annette Michelson. Often associated with minimalism, Morris (b. 1931) also created important works that involved dance, process art, and conceptualism. The texts in this volume focus on Morris's early work and include an examination of a 1971 Tate retrospective by Jon Bird, an interview with the artist by Benjamin Buchloh, a conversation from a 1994 issue of October about resistance to 1960s art, and an essay by this volume's editor, Julia Bryan-Wilson, on the labor involved in installing the massive works in Morris's 1970 solo exhibition at the Whitney. Spanning 1965 to 2009, these writings map the evolution of critical thought on Morris over more than four decades

Traces : Ana Mendieta by Ana Mendieta( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During her short career, Ana Mendieta (1948-85) created a body of work that was provocative and radically inventive. Using her own body, together with elemental materials - blood, fire, earth and water - she created visceral 'tableaus' and ephemeral 'earth-body' sculptures exploring life, death, rebirth and spiritual transformation. Born in Cuba, but sent to the US as a child, much of her art expresses the pain and rupture of cultural displacement and exile. In Mendieta's work the outline of her body is consumed by gunpowder, fireworks, or advancing waves, and ancient goddess-forms are shaped from sand, carved into rock, or incised into clay or onto leaves. The media are exceptionally diverse, but the images are consistently compelling, mysterious and poetic. Encompassing a wealth of drawings, photography and film, Ana Mendieta: Traces provides a comprehensive and illuminating overview of this highly influential artist's work. Essays by art historians, Julia Bryan-Wilson and Adrian Heathfield, as well as Stephanie Rosenthal, Chief Curator at Hayward Gallery, provide an array of new approaches to Mendieta's practice. This publication also includes a wide-ranging and highly illustrated anthology of never-before-seen material, including Mendieta's own notebooks, exhibition plans and correspondence, the result of unparalleled access to the Ana Mendieta Archive. Filled with new imagery, ephemera and scholarship, Ana Mendieta: Traces provides a comprehensive introduction to this major twentieth-century artist, as essential for Mendieta experts as for those coming to her work for the first time."--Publisher's description
State of mind : new California art circa 1970 by Constance Lewallen( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Work ethic by Helen Anne Molesworth( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By contrast, Helen Molesworth and her collaborators in Work Ethic set such activities in the context of the workplace and contend that they engage issues of management, production, and skill that accompanied the emergence of the information age. The result is a major breakthrough in understanding the structures and ambitions of a wide range of art-making. Work Ethic reproduces all the diverse material—Bruce Nauman videotapes to Roxy Paine’s painting machine—in the Baltimore exhibition and provides insightful discussion of each piece’s history, structure, and significance. Four essays introduce topics, like utopian fantasies of pleasurable work, that are of general relevance to setting the material into a postindustrial context. Throughout this catalogue, there is as well a lively dialogue on the museum’s relationship to art that questions the rules of both the workplace and the art world

Art in the making : artists and their materials from the studio to crowdsourcing by Glenn Adamson( Book )

14 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today, artists are able to create using multiple methods of production--from painting to digital technologies to crowdsourcing--some of which would have been unheard of just a few decades ago. Yet, even as our means of making art become more extraordinary and diverse, they are almost never addressed in their specificity. While critics and viewers tend to focus on the finished products we see in museums and galleries, authors Glenn Adamson and Julia Bryan-Wilson argue that the materials and processes behind the scenes used to make artworks are also vital to current considerations of authorship and to understanding the economic and social contexts from which art emerges. This wide-ranging exploration of different methods and media in art since the 1950s includes nine chapters that focus on individual processes of making: Painting, Woodworking, Building, Performing, Tooling Up, Cashing In, Fabricating, Digitizing, and Crowdsourcing. Detailed examples are interwoven with the discussion, including visuals that reveal the intricacies of techniques and materials. Artists featured include Ai Weiwei, Alice Aycock, Isa Genzken, Los Carpinteros, Paul Pfeiffer, Doris Salcedo, Santiago Sierra, and Rachel Whiteread." -- Publisher's description
Fray : art + textile politics by Julia Bryan-Wilson( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1974, women in a feminist consciousness-raising group in Eugene, Oregon, formed a mock organization called the Ladies Sewing Circle and Terrorist Society. Emblazoning its logo onto t-shirts, the group wryly envisioned female collective textile making as a practice that could upend conventions, threaten state structures, and wreak political havoc. Elaborating on this example as a prehistory to the more recent phenomenon of "craftivism"--The politics and social practices associated with handmaking--Fray explores textiles and their role at the forefront of debates about process, materiality, gender, and race in times of economic upheaval. Closely examining how amateurs and fine artists in the United States and Chile turned to sewing, braiding, knotting, and quilting amid the rise of global manufacturing, Julia Bryan-Wilson argues that textiles unravel the high/low divide and urges us to think flexibly about what the politics of textiles might be. Her case studies from the 1970s through the 1990s--including the improvised costumes of the theater troupe the Cockettes, the braided rag rugs of US artist Harmony Hammond, the thread-based sculptures of Chilean artist Cecilia Vicuña, the small hand-sewn tapestries depicting Pinochet's torture, and the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt--are often taken as evidence of the inherently progressive nature of handcrafted textiles. Fray, however, shows that such methods are recruited to often ambivalent ends, leaving textiles very much "in the fray" of debates about feminized labor, protest cultures, and queer identities; the malleability of cloth and fiber means that textiles can be activated, or stretched, in many ideological directions. The first contemporary art history book to discuss both fine art and amateur registers of handmaking at such an expansive scale, Fray unveils crucial insights into how textiles inhabit the broad space between artistic and political poles--high and low, untrained and highly skilled, conformist and disobedient, craft and art. --!

Kiki Smith : procession by Petra Giloy-Hirtz( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and German and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Artist Kiki Smith has produced an astoundingly varied body of work that deals powerfully with the political, social, philosophical, and spiritual aspects of human nature-especially in the way they relate to women. Smith's earlier works reflect the social discourse of the 1980s, particularly focusing on death and the AIDS epidemic. She later turned to issues of feminism, abortion rights, and animal rights. This comprehensive book provides an overview of Smith's artistic development, focusing on her sculpture, from the early 1980s to the present day. Images of her radical, unflinching work reveal an artist who is not afraid to explore subjects such as the human body or a society's archetypes. Filled with the beauty, vitality, and charm that are the hallmarks of Kiki Smith's art, this book urges viewers to think and feel. Exhibition: Haus der Kunst, Munich Germany (02.02 - 03.06.2018)

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Her versatility, humor, and feminist perspective are on brilliant display in this book that traces her development over the past twenty years.

Arranged both chronologically and thematically, this lushly illustrated book focuses on an artist doing important work in the fields of queer theory, craft making, and personal geography. -- Exhibition: Phoenix Art Museum, Arizona, United States (14.10.2017-28.01.2018) / Everson Museum of Art, New York, United States (09.02-13.05.2018)
About to happen by Cecilia Vicuña( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cecilia Vicuña: About to Happen traces the artist's long career to stage a conversation about discarded and displaced people, places, and things in a time of global climate change. The first major U.S. solo exhibition of the influential Chilean-born artist is comprised of Vicuña's multidisciplinary work in performance, sculpture, drawing, video, text, and site-specific installations over the course of the past 40 years. Reframing dematerialization as both a formal consequence of 1960s conceptualism and radical climate change-the exhibition examines a process that shapes public memory and responsibility. Operating fluidly between concept and craft, text and textile, Vicuña's practice weaves together disparate disciplines as well as communities-with shared relationships to land and sea, and to the economic and environmental disparities of the 21st century."
