Revisiting the glass house : contemporary art and modern architecture ( Book )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In recent years, there has been an enormous interest among emerging and established artists in architecture of the modern period. Revisiting the Glass House explores the ways in which contemporary artists incorporate images of modern buildings in their work as a means to explore the Utopian potential of architecture and to provide an antidote to the cynicism of our time.The book features painting, photography, video art, and other two-dimensional work by twenty-two artists from around the world whose engagement with architecture has more to do with ideas and ideals than with structure. The artists reimagine the iconic designs of architects such as Walter Gropius, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Le Corbusier, placing their buildings in unlikely locations and repurposing them for a new generation. Through the works of these artists, contributing essayists examine the recent nostalgia for modern architecture and its potential for instigating social change

No reservations : Native American history and culture in contemporary art ( Book )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection of work by both Native and non-Native artists speaks of the complexity of Native American historical and cultural influences in contemporary culture. Rather than focusing on artists who attempt to maintain strict cultural practices, it brings together a group of artists who engage the larger contemporary art world and are not afraid to step beyond the bounds of tradition. Focusing on a group of 10 artists who came of age since the initial Native Rights movement of the 1960s and 70s, the book emphasizes art that does not so much "look Indian," but incorporates Native content in surprising and innovative ways that defy easy categorization. The Native artists featured here focus on the evolution of cultural traditions. The non-Native artists focus primarily on the history of European colonization in America. Artists include Matthew Buckingham, Lewis deSoto, Peter Edlund, Nicholas Galanin, Jeffrey Gibson, Rigo 23, Duane Slick, Marie Watt, Edie Winograde and Yoram Wolberger

Seeing around : Edward Tufte by Edward R Tufte ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Seeing Around, the first major museum exhibition of the sculpture of Edward Tufte, is on view in The Aldrich's three-acre Sculpture Garden and the adjacent Project Space Gallery from June 13, 2009 to April 12, 2010. In the last ten years, the artist has completed fifty large-scale abstract outdoor installation artworks, one hundred table pieces, and numerous steel engravings and digital prints. His sculptures are constructed from stainless steel, weathered and rusting steel, road plate, scrap metal, discards from a nuclear power plant, and blacksmithing and mechanic's tools. The complex geometries of the stainless pieces borrow, reflect, alter, and absorb nature's light to create a multiplicity of color fields. The rusting, weathered artworks produce complex, multiple, and sometimes playful narratives.--Mailing insert

Wendell Castle : wandering forms : works from 1959 to 1979 by Alastair Gordon ( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Wendell Castle: Wandering Forms focuses on the iconic masterpieces in wood and in technicolor gel-coated fiberglass that Castle created during the 1960s and 1970s. These works have forever transformed the way we look at furniture and its making and are fast becoming some of the most important and coveted examples of twentieth-century design. Distinguished writer Alastair Gordon recounts Castle's exciting design breakthrough in lyrical and penetrating prose that brings the furniture to life. At the same time, he tells the quintessentially American story of a pioneering artist who steadily built a career and a body of work in the context of a rapidly changing artistic, political, and social environment. This book is filled with information about Castle and images of his furniture designs that have never been published before, including many from Castle's own archives. The stunning design integrates Gordon's text with hundreds of reproductions, photographs, drawings, press clippings, and other documents."--Jacket

Erik Parker : colorful resistance by Mónica Ramírez-Montagut ( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"While internationally acclaimed artist Erik Parker has deep roots in alternative comics, illustration, and graffiti, his body of work successfully bridges that underground culture and the Pop Surrealism movement. The first retrospective look at the artist's irreverent and boisterous artwork, Erik Parker: Colorful Resistance includes a look at four recurring themes (social and political mappings, pictographs, ebullient heads, and animated still lifes), all of which present busy, intense compositions originated from word clusters, viscera-like forms, and animated figurines that represent the critical mass of social movements."--Cover sleeve
