Anish Kapoor : past, present, future by Anish Kapoor( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Anish Kapoor is one of a highly inventive generation of sculptors who emerged in London in the early 1980s. Since then he has created a remarkable body of work that blends a modernist sense of pure materiality with a fascination for the manipulation of form and the perception of space. This book-the first major American publication on Kapoor's work-surveys his work since 1979, with a focus on sculptures and installations made since the early 1990s. With more than ninety color images of these ambitious and complex works, three original essays, an extended interview with Kapoor, and selections from his sketchbooks, this book confirms Anish Kapoor's place as one of the most remarkable sculptors working today. Kapoor's work has evolved into an abstract and perceptually complex elaboration of the sculptural object as at once monumental and evanescent, physical and ethereal-as in his famous Cloud Gate (2004) in Chicago's Millennium Park. The works in Anish Kapoor include such striking works as Past, Present, Future (2006), 1000 Names (1979-1980) and When I Am Pregnant (1992). This book, which accompanies an exhibition at Boston's Institute of Contemporary Art, offers American readers a long-overdue opportunity to consider the extraordinary clarity, subtlety, and power of Kapoor's art. Includes an interview with the artist by Nicholas Baume

This will have been : art, love & politics in the 1980s by Helen Anne Molesworth( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'This will have been: art, love & politics in the 1980s' covers the period from 1979 to 1992. During this era, the political sphere was dominated by the ideas of former US President Ronald Reagan and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, the music scene was transformed by punk and the birth of hip-hop, and our everyday lives were radically altered by a host of technological developments, from the Sony Walkman and the ATM to the appearance of MTV and the first personal computers. In the United States, the decade opened with an enormous anti-nuclear protest in New York's Central Park and closed with mass demonstrations against the government's slow response to the AIDS crisis. This exhibition attempts to make sense of what happened to the visual arts in the United States during this tumultuous period. The artists represented in This Will Have Been belong to the first generation of artists to grow up with a television in the home. They came of age in a culture saturated with images designed to promote desire - desire for objects, for lifestyles, for fame, for conformity, for anti-conformity. So too the majority of these artists lived through the heady days of the 1970s feminist movement and witnessed that broad-based social movement's demands for equality in all areas of life - work, family, and intimate relationships. It became the task of the 1980s to assimilate these powerful social forces - the rise of television and movements for social justice - as they converged. For many of the artists represented in this exhibition that meant grappling with complex questions: In a world increasingly filled with mass-media images, what is the role of the visual arts? How can artists make images that either compete with or counter the powerful images produced by advertising and Hollywood? In a society struggling for increased equality, how do historically marginalized people - women, people of color, and gays and lesbians - find their public voice? Toward the end of the decade, as the rise of HIV/AIDS created a growing political and medical crisis in the United States, these questions increased in urgency. This Will Have Been features a wide range of artworks, made by a diverse group of nearly one hundred artists, demonstrating the decade's moments of contentious debate, raucous dialogue, erudite opinions, and joyful expression - all in the name of an expanded idea of freedom, long the promise of democratic societies--MOCA website

Tara Donovan by Tara Donovan( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Artist Tara Donovan uses commonplace consumer materials--toothpicks, tape, pencils, buttons, paper plates, and the like--to create her dazzling sculptural installations. Often biomorphic or topographical in character, her large-scale abstract works utilize systematic arrangements of thousands or even millions of units. Visually evocative, her pieces are at once organic and highly structured. Donovan has been recognized for her commitment to process and her ability to discover how the inherent physical characteristics of an object might allow it to be transformed into art. Published in conjunction with a major studio exhibition at the Institute for Contemporary Art in Boston, this book is the first to document Donovan's complete oeuvre, from her beginnings working in ink to her most recent pieces. Among the many works shown are Untitled (Plastic Cups), a 50-by-60-foot landscape of plastic cups; Haze, a 42-foot-long wall of over two million clear plastic drinking straws stacked like wood; and her three 40-inch cubes, one of steel pins, one of toothpicks, and one of shattered glass. An in-depth conversation between Donovan and Lawrence Weschler traces the artist's schooling, early career, and current work
Amy Sillman : one lump or two by Helen Anne Molesworth( Book )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accompanying a major museum retrospective of the acclaimed American painter, this book traces Amy Sillman's diverse body of work that includes drawings, cartoons, paintings, and animated videos produced on an iPhone. From her early small-scale cartoon figures to her later enormous abstract paintings, Amy Sillman's artistic vision shines through in this beautiful volume that covers the period from 1995 to the present. Filled with drawings, paintings, and 'zines, as well as stills from the artist's recent forays into animated films, the book traces the development of Sillman's work from her early use of cartoon figures and a vivacious palette through her exploration of the diagrammatic line, the history of Abstract Expressionism.0Exhibition: Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, USA (4.10.2013-5.1.2014) / Aspen Art Museum, Colorado, USA (13.2.-11.5.2014) / Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, New York, USA (28.6.-21.9.2014)
