Road to freedom : photographs of the Civil Rights Movement, 1956-1968 by Julian Cox( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Road to Freedom: Photographs of the Civil Rights Movement, 1956-1968 is the most significant exhibition of civil rights photographs presented in an art musuem in more than twenty years. These images were taken by many photographers - photojournalists, artists, movement photographers, and amateurs alike - all of whom seem to have had a keen understanding of the significance of their subject. This publication presents a narrative of some of the key moments of the civil rights movement, including the Freedom Rides of 1961, the Birmingham hosings of 1963, and the Selma to Montgomery March of 1965. These are the unforgettable images that helped to change the nation, increasing the momentum of the nonviolent movement by dramatically raising awareness of injustice and the struggle for equality."--Jacket
Street art, street life : from the 1950s to now( Book )

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

"Street Art, Street Life examines the street as subject matter, venue, and source of inspiration for nearly forty international artists and photographers from the 1950s to the present. "The street" is a common referent for today's art, yet the history of this idea has rarely been contextualized and unpacked for a closer reading." "Looking broadly at street photography; documentation of performances, events, and artworks presented the street; as well as works made using material scavenged from the street, this volume provides an invaluable perspective on an issue that has become one of today's key concepts in contemporary art."

Art AIDS America is the first comprehensive overview and reconsideration of 30 years of art made in response to the AIDS epidemic in the United States. This book foregrounds the role of HIV/AIDS in shifting the development of American art away from the cool conceptual foundations of postmodernism and toward a new, more insistently political and autobiographical voice. Art AIDS America surveys more than 100 works of American art from the early 1980s to the present, reintroducing and exploring the whole spectrum of artistic responses to HIV/AIDS, from in-your-face activism to quiet elegy

Gordon Matta-Clark : anarchitect by Gordon Matta-Clark( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This revealing book looks at the groundbreaking work of Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-1978), whose socially conscious practice blurred the boundaries between contemporary art and architecture. After completing a degree in architecture at Cornell University, Matta-Clark returned to his home city of New York, where he initiated a series of site-specific works in derelict areas of the South Bronx. The borough's many abandoned buildings, the result of economic decline and middle-class flight, served as Matta-Clark's raw material. His series 'Bronx Floors' dissected these structures, performing an anatomical study of ther ravaged urban landscape. Moving from New York to Paris with 'Conical Interserct', a piece that became emblematic of artistic protest, Matta-Clark applied this same method to a pair of seventeenth-century row houses slatted for demolition as a result of the Centre Pompidou's construction. This compelling volume grounds Matta-Clark's practice against the framework of architectural and urban history, stressing his pioneering activist-inspired approach, as well as his contribution to the nascent fields of social practice and relational aesthetics."
