Who gets to call it art? the legend of Henry Geldzahler, 1935-1994 ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Henry Geldzahler (1935-94), star curator and cultural impresario, lived a life worth examining. The first curator of the Department of 20th-Century Art at the Metropolitan Museum, first director of visual arts for the National Endowment of the Arts, and the first full-time commissioner of cultural affairs for New York City, his landmark 1969 show at the Metropolitan is still remembered with awe. "New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970" filled 35 galleries with more than 400 groundbreaking works of contemporary art. This film is not a full biographical examination of this singular figure's life, but rather a portrait in profile, as many of 'his' artists talk about Geldzahler and what his friendship meant to them

Ellsworth Kelly : the Chatham series by Ann Temkin ( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In celebration of Ellsworth Kelly's ninetieth birthday in May 2013, The Museum of Modern Art will present the first exhibition in 40 years of all fourteen paintings that comprise the 'Chatham' series of works the artist produced after leaving New York City for Spencetown, in upstate New York, in 1970. The series has not been exhibited in its entirety since it was presented at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, in 1972. 'The Chatham Series', published in conjunction with the exhibition, is a richly illustrated exploration of this key moment in Kelly's career. The 14 large-scale paintings he produced there all rely on a single formal concept-each is made of two joined canvases of pure monochrome color - yet the works vary in color and proportion from one to the next. An essay by Ann Temkin traces the artist's explorations of shape, color and spatiality from the early 1950 to today. 0Exhibition: MoMA, New York, USA (22.5.-9.9.2013)

Ellsworth Kelly, fragments ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ellsworth Kelly is widely regarded as one of the most important abstract painters, sculptors and printmakers working today. Kelly insists on the connection between abstraction and nature from which he extrapolates forms and colors. Since the beginning of his career, Kelly's emphasis on pure form and color and his impulse to suppress gesture in favor of spatial unity, has played a pivotal role in the development of abstract art in America. This documentary elucidates the true complexity of the artist's work. In following Kelly as he revisits the Paris of his early twenties, the film uncovers early influences which became leitmotifs that he would return to, reiterate, refine, and re-work for decades to come."--Container
