American masters : the voice and the myth by Brian O'Doherty( Book )

26 editions published between 1973 and 1988 in English and held by 1,409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about "eight American artists, each of whom stands for certain aspects of American art and tradition. The book's underlining - and hitherto unexamined - theme between an artist's work - his "voice" and its reception by the public, which tends to comprehend the artist and his work as a "myth," and so provides itself with a special armature whereby the artist's image and body of work become stabilized and accessible. "-- BOOK JACKET excerpt
Inside the white cube : the ideology of the gallery space by Brian O'Doherty( Book )

50 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 1,218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"O'Doherty was the first to explicitly confront a particular crisis in postwar art as he sought to examine the assumptions on which the modern commercial and museum gallery were based. Concerned with the complex and sophisticated relationship between economics, social context, and aesthetics as represented in the contested space of the art gallery, he raises the question of how artists must construe their work in relation to the gallery space and system." "These essays are essential reading for anyone interested in the history and issues of postwar art in Europe and the United States."--Jacket

White cube, green maze : new art landscapes by Raymund Ryan( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spanning four continents and six countries, this book introduces "new art landscapes" that fuse architecture, the reuse of found structures, environmentalism, and artistic experimentation. Through words and pictures, readers explore six institutions--Olympic Sculpture Park, Seattle, USA; Raketenstation Hombroich, near Neuss, Germany; Benesse Art Site in Naoshima, Japan; Inhotim, near Belo Horizonte, Brazil; Jardín Botánico, Culiacán, Mexico; and Grand Traiano Art Complex, Grottaferrata, Italy--dedicated to the experience of culture and nature. Integrating vegetation and non-linear sequences of spaces, the sites offer multiple experiences enticing the visitor to circulate between and within buildings. Iwan Baan, one of today's most influential architectural photographers, thoughtfully documents each project. In addition to his stunning images, the sites are depicted with architects' plans and sketches, historical photographs, and maquettes and sketches by key installation artists. Raymund Ryan's insightful essay discusses important historical precedents and considers the defining characteristics of "new art landscapes" through descriptions of each of the projects. Brian O'Doherty offers an artist's critical perspective, while Marc Treib situates the projects in the history of landscape design Architects under consideration include such established masters as Tadao Ando and Álvaro Siza Vieira as well as emerging practices such as Tatiana Bilbao and Johnston Marklee

Atelier und Galerie by Brian O'Doherty( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in German and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Welches Verhältnis besteht zwischen Künstler, Kunstwerk und dem Raum, in dem es entsteht? Was passiert, wenn das Atelier zum Ausstellungsraum, was, wenn es selbst zum Kunstwerk wird? Und wie lässt sich das Atelier innerhalb des „White Cube“ als „Medium der Transformation“ verorten? Diesen und ähnlichen Fragen geht Brian O`Doherty in seinem neuen Essay nach. Mit „Studio and Cube“ legt er die lang erwartete Folgestudie zu dem 1999 erschienenen Essayband „Inside the White Cube“ vor. Dabei knüpft er an seine Überlegungen zum „White Cube“ an und verlagert den Focus hin zum Künstleratelier. O`Doherty untersucht die Entwicklung des Verhältnisses von Künstler, Kunstwerk und Atelier durch die verschiedenen Epochen und Gattungen hindurch, von Vermeer, Courbet und Delacroix, hin zu Rothko, Bacon und Warhol. Er liest die Ateliers als Texte und belegt, dass sie genauso aufschlussreich sind wie die Kunstwerke selbst. Weit von reiner Werkästhetik entfernt, verbindet O`Dohertys Essay Kunstinterpretation mit einer Philosophie des Raumes
