L.A. Xicano( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The exhibition catalog for L.A. Xicano explores the artistic contributions of Mexican American and Chicano artists to American art and to Los Angeles's artistic development since 1945. The volume's six illustrated essays examine the life and works of the dozens of artists and photographers whose works are displayed and document the important role of artists' groups. The authors consider these artists and their work in the context of the turbulent history of the time, particularly the development of the Chicano Movement. A plate section features works from each of the four exhibitions." -- From the Publisher
Inscribing meaning : writing and graphic systems in African art by National Museum of African Art (U.S.)( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inscribing Meaning explores the relationships between African art and the communicative powers of language, graphic systems and the written word. For thousands of years, African artists have incorporated writing and graphic symbols into their art with great ingenuity and creativity. Scripts communicate in many ways - through their appearance, their placement and the very act of writing. Objects dating from ancient times to the present illustrate how African artists have used diverse forms of letters, words and symbols as well as their meanings to create beautiful, empowered works of art. Inscribing Meaning recognizes that Africa's long engagement with written and graphic systems is part of the broader, global history of writing and literacy. The works of art featured in this catalogue reveal the richness of Africa's artistic traditions and emphasize that objects are aesthetically powerful communicators of history, knowledge, identity and values. -- From back cover

Disguise : masks and global African art( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"African masks changed the face of modern art in the early twentieth century. Today, a century later, young artists are again looking at masks in museums for inspiration. In this era of innovation, when digital culture is upending our visual framework, artists are reinventing form in an ever-expanding choice of mediums. With Disguise: Masks and Global African Art, the Seattle Art Museum's renowned collection of masks has become a catalyst for artists, encouraging them to present fresh visions of masquerade and of the shared instinct to hide from ourselves and from each other"--

The beautiful walls : photographic elevations of street art in Los Angeles, Berlin, and Paris by Patrick Arthur Polk( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Graffiti is a forceful way of inscribing presence or 'being' in the world as well as a means of creating affective links to the potency of natural wonders, religious shrines, and ancient ruins as well as the contemporary cityscape. The photographic elevations presented in this volume represent a graffiti-punctuated pilgrim's progress built around the aesthetics of defacement. Graffiti- and mural-covered walls, buildings, automobiles, and railcars are the artful wonders, the vibrant shrines, and the dynamic ruins that structured Larry Yust's pilgrimage to some of the most famed metropolitan centers of the world. He has brought back panoramic souvenirs; vistas that let us be there in a way that is perhaps better than being there. This book celebrates the artistry and audacity of the taggers and uncommissioned muralists who decorate and deface contemporary cities."--Publisher's description
In extremis : death and life in twenty-first-century Haitian art( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Focusing on artistic evocations of the irrepressible Gedes-an increasingly dominant family of trickster deities-In Extremis examines the striking disjunction between social collapse and artistic flourescence in twenty-first century Haiti. It brings together the work of 34 artists, most of them living in Port-au-Prince, where they produce remarkable and controversial bodies of work in a variety of media while confronting on a daily basis the realities of Haiti's frustratingly slow recovery from the earthquake of 2010. Some of these artists have achieved acclaim on the international stage, but many receive new attention or reexamination here

African-print fashion now! : A story of taste, globalization, and style by Fowler Museum at UCLA( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

African-Print Fashion Now!' introduces visitors to a dynamic and diverse African dress tradition and the increasingly interconnected fashion worlds that it inhabits: "popular" African-print styles created by local seamstresses and tailors across the continent; international runway fashions designed by Africa's newest generation of couturiers; and boundary-breaking, transnational, and youth styles favored in Africa's urban centers. All feature the colorful, boldly designed, manufactured cotton textiles that have come to be known as "African-print cloth."0The book tells the global stories of these textiles-the early history of the print cloth trade in West and Central Africa, the expansion of production following independence movements, and the increasing popularity of Asian-made print cloth today. Popular African styles from Ghana, Nigeria, Cote d'Ivoire, Cameroon, and Senegal are featured, as well as groundbreaking runway fashions by some of Africa's most talented couturiers

Rina Banerjee : make me a summary of the world by Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Amid a turn toward nativist politics in the United States, the work of Indian-born, New York-based artist Rina Banerjee (born 1963) seems particularly relevant, reflecting as it does the splintered experience of identity, tradition and culture prevalent in diasporic communities. Banerjee's fanciful sculptures are made from materials sourced throughout the world--in a single work one can find African tribal jewelry, feathers, light bulbs, Murano glass and South Asian antiques. Make Me a Summary of the World, the first in-depth examination of the artist's work, uses a selection of Banerjee's large-scale installations along with her sculptures and paintings to consider the artist's place in both American and global frameworks
Axé Bahia : the power of art in an Afro-Brazilian metropolis( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Axe Bahia' examines the unique cultural role played by Salvador, the coastal capital of the Brazilian state of Bahia. An internationally renowned center of Afro-Brazilian culture, Salvador has been a vibrant and important hub of African-inspired artistic practices in Latin America since the 1940s. This volume represents the most comprehensive investigation in the United States of Bahian arts to date and features essays by eighteen international scholars. While adding to popular understandings of core expressions of African heritage, such as the religion Candomble, the essays explore in depth the complexities of race and cultural affiliation in Brazil and the provocative ways in which artists have experienced and responded creatively to prevailing realities of Afro-Brazilian identity in Bahia. Lavishly illustrated, the book features works by artists ranging from modernists, among them Mario Cravo Neto, Rubem Valentim, and Pierre Verger, to contemporary artists Rommulo Vieira Conceicao, Caetano Dias, Helen Salomao, Ayrson Heraclito, and others-including a stunning array of sculpture, painting, photography, video, and installation art. The exhibition was part of the Getty's Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative.00Exhibition: Fowler Museum at UCLA, Los Angeles, USA (24.09.2017?15.04.2018)
