William Eggleston : democratic camera, photographs and video, 1961-2008 by Elisabeth Sussman( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elvis's Graceland, a freezer stuffed with food, a Gulf gasoline sign standing in a deserted rural landscape, these are only a few of the iconic images captured by the "democratic camera" of photographer William Eggleston. Not only has he drawn upon images so telling of American culture, he has produced them with an intensity and balance of color that have helped elevate the entire field of color photography to a fine art, especially since his 1976 exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. Drawing together Eggleston̕s famous and lesser known works, this lavishly illustrated catalogue is the first to examine both his photography and videos. Of particular relevance are his black and white images from the late 1950s and 1960s, which helped shape his color photography, as well as the relationship between his provocative video recordings of 1970s Memphis nightlife and his later work. Included are reproductions of newly restored prints, executed specifically for the exhibition. Filled with new and challenging contributions to scholarship and accompanying the first major U.S. survey of his work, this catalogue will prove the standard reference for Eggleston's photographs for years to come

Ellsworth Kelly : a retrospective by Ellsworth Kelly( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive monograph - published on the occasion of the first complete retrospective of Kelly's work since 1973, organized at the Guggenheim Museum by Diane Waldman, the museum's Deputy Director and Senior Curator - is a definitive investigation of Kelly's career, from his earliest works to the present. Waldman, author of numerous monographs on Modern and contemporary art, has brought together more than 399 of Kelly's most important paintings, sculptures, and works on paper (including several that have never been published): early abstract paintings and reliefs; figurative drawings; collages; photographs; paintings featuring a synthesis of biomorphic and geometric form; single-panel and multipanel paintings; shaped panels; and many of his sculptures, including the first two (from 1959) through the most recent (from 1996). her essay - an overview of Kelly's entire career - and four additional essays on various aspects of his oeuvre by Roberta Bernstein, Carter Ratcliff, Mark Rosenthal, and Clare Bell (plus a Chronology, Exhibition History, and Bibliography) explain the important relationships among his works in various mediums, and reveal why and how Kelly has produced some of the most distinctive art of our time
Lovis Corinth by Lovis Corinth( Book )

11 editions published in 1996 in 3 languages and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lovis Corinth was one of the most exciting artists to emerge from turn-of-the-century Germany. Together with Max Beckmann and Oskar Kokoschka, he became one of the greatest figurative painters of the early twentieth century. An outsider of astonishing individuality, he has resisted categorization by art historians in terms of Impressionism, Expressionism, and other movements." "Corinth began his career in the realist tradition in the 1880's, but he was soon at the vanguard of change. Following a period in Munich when his religious and mythological paintings brought him his first taste of fame, Corinth moved to Berlin in 1901, where he spearheaded the protest against Kaiser Wilhelm II's official policy on art." "Towards the latter part of his career, Corinth's work clearly reflects his reactions to his own illness and to World War I. Objects are caught up in a play of broad, energetic brush strokes, the paste-like layers of paint applied in sweeping, parallel movements to produce the characteristic hatching that became his hallmark. These later works - mainly landscapes, portraits and self-portraits - continued to be an inspiration to representatives of later movements." "Lovis Corinth provides a comprehensive analysis of the artist still little known outside Europe. The Munich and Berlin years, his sources and inspiration, his subject matter, his painting and drawing are examined by authors from America, Britain, and Germany. The book is beautifully illustrated with numerous colour reproductions of his oil paintings, watercolours, drawings, and graphic works, providing the definitive illustrated reference on the artist."--Jacket

Move : choreographing you : art and dance since the 1960s( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Move : choreographing you explores the interaction between visual art and dance since the 1960s. Focusing on visual artists and choreographers who create sculptures and installations that direct the movements of audiences, making them dancers as much as active participants, Move sets out to show that choreography is not merely about the notation of movement on paper or in film, but that it may be equally implied by sculptural works and installations. The publication presents some of the diverse yet interconnected ways that visual art and choreography have come together over the last fifty years
Turning back : a photographic journal of re-exploration by Robert Adams( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two hundred years ago Lewis and Clark reported finding in the American Northwest a vast forest of ancient evergreens. In Turning Back Robert Adams looks again at the region's trees, discovering evidence both of America's failure and of a continuing promise." "President Jefferson's primary charge to Lewis and Clark was to prepare the way for American commerce. They tried to do this, as well as make money for themselves. Historians still speculate about why, upon his return, Lewis lapsed into depression and apparently committed suicide. "Going east," Adams suggests, "was more difficult than going west."" "What is the future? Turning Back documents two kinds of predictive evidence. On the one hand we observe the results of greed so unrestrained that they are indistinguishable from those of nihilism. On the other we see what still lives unharmed, whether by our design or neglect or Providence; in these pictures the tone is celebratory, as in a prayer book."--BOOK JACKET

Ai Weiwei by Weiwei Ai( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in German and English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ai Weiwei's work is an audacious blend of old and new, Western and Eastern, serious and irreverent. He has translated the readymade into a new artistic language, fusing neolithic pottery, fourteenth-century doors and seventeenth-century temple beams into surprising, at times shocking sculptures. He has documented his disdain for authority by giving the finger to the Tiananmen in Beijing, the Reichstag in Berlin and the White House in Washington (Study of Perspective, 1993-2005). And he has captured the mundane urban sprawl of his home city in a 150-hour video (Beijing 2003, 2003) that even dwarfs Andy Warhol's notorious eight-hour Empire. Ai Weiwei grew up on the edge of the Gobi desert in China's Western provinces. In the late 1970s he moved to Beijing, banding together with other pro-democracy artists in a loose collective know as the Stars group. In 1981, following government retaliation against their exhibitions, he moved to New York, where he attended art school and lived for twelve years, eventually returning to China when his father fell ill in 1993. Settling in Beijing, Ai became a rallying figure in a burgeoning new art scene. Taking up his art in earnest, he also emerged as a surprising and celebrated architect. (In addition to his numerous commissions for buildings in Beijing and beyond, he provided Swiss architects Herzog & De Meuron with the inspiration for their celebrated Beijing National Stadium, home to the 2008 Olympics.) What marks Ai as a truly twenty-first-century artist is precisely this multiplicity of roles: not just artist, designer and architect, but also curator, publisher, Web blogger and compass for an entire generation of Beijing artists. His outsize public persona is an integral part of his art. Although his outspoken views have brought him unwanted attention from the State, they have also generated excitement far beyond China's borders. His work has been increasingly featured in the world's most significant exhibitions, including Ducumenta 12 (2007), the 5th Asia-Pacific Triennial (2007) and the 15 Biennale of Sydney (2006), in the process providing the world with a inside view into one of the most exciting new art scenes. Karen Smith's Survey traces the artist's remarkable career from his early days in Beijing to his discovery of the Western avant-garde in New York and his recent emergence as a celebrated sculptor and architect. In the Interview Hans Ulrich Obrist discusses with the artist his father's artistic training and subsequent exile and the effects they had on his own views on art and authority. Bernard Fibicher's Focus looks at the monumental light sculpture Descending Light (2007). Artist's Choice features a poem by Ai Qing, one of China's most important twentieth-century writers. Artist's Writings include entries from Ai's blog, seen by millions of visitors each year and celebrated for its thoughtful and candid remarks on the subjects of art, politics and culture
