Tim Hawkinson by Lawrence Rinder( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the first comprehensive survey of the work of Los Angeles-based artist Tim Hawkinson (b. 1960), whose ingenious constructions of found objects and everyday items have brought him widespread recognition as one of the most original sculptors working in America today. Known primarily for his large-scale kinetic and sound-producing works, such as the monumental Überorgan, Hawkinson has also created a bird skeleton from his own fingernail parings, a latex cast of his body inflated with air, and clocks fashioned from a Coke can. a manila envelope, and a toothpaste tube. His fantastical assemblages, which may include sculpture, painting, photography, drawing, or printmaking, suggest the profound strangeness of life, matter, and time. With 250 color illustrations and three insightful essays, along with the artist's commentary on more than 150 of his hugely varied works, Tim Hawkinson will prove a revelation to all those interested in contemporary art
William Christenberry by William Christenberry( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the early 1960s, William Christenberry has plumbed the regional identity of the American South through his work in Hale County, Alabama, where he was raised. Although he is most often associated with--and recognized as a pioneer in--American color photography, he also works in an unorthodox mix of media that includes sculpture, drawing, painting and found-object assemblage. This comprehensive survey of his work considers all those practices together, and in doing so gives readers access to the full scope and complexity of his vision. In every medium, Christenberry's theme is unified: the history, the story of place, is at the heart of his project. His poetic documentation of vernacular architecture, signage and landscape captures moments of quiet beauty in a sometimes mythic terrain that, with its worn iconography and buildings turned ramshackle, evokes the form and power of the passage of time. Since relocating to Washington, D.C., in 1968, Christenberry has dutifully returned to photograph the same locations annually--the green barn, the palmist building, the Bar-B-Q Inn--fulfilling a personal ritual and documenting the physical changes wrought by the passing of a year. More than half the photographs in this comprehensive survey are previously unpublished, including new and vintage images and a stunning selection of never-before-seen Kodachrome work. An essay by Walter Hopps, the artist's lifelong friend and the founding director of the Menil Collection, who passed away in 2005, will draw attention as well

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Glass: Material Matters is the first exhibition of contemporary glass organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and incorporates more than fifty works from LACMA's permanent collection. This eclectic presentation is organized to reflect a spectrum of thematic, formal, and technical directions in glass primarily from the mid-1980s to the present; the works of such artists as Zaha Hadid, Norman Foster, Maya Lin, and Rem Koolhaas, who have been important innovators in glass. This show with its diversity of subjects will underscore LACMA's commitment to the collection and display of contemporary works in glass."--Publisher's website

Gottfried Helnwein by Gottfried Helnwein( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Arbeiten und Aktionen von Gottfried Helnwein lösen immer wieder Diskussionen aus. Seine schmerzhaften Bilder verweigern dem Betrachter sehr bewusst das Behagen an der Kunst, stellen unbequeme Fragen und geben keine Antwort. Vielen gilt Helnwein als der Nachfolger Andy Warhols, als unbestechlicher Chronist der Zeit. Anlässlich seines 65. Geburtstags stellt die retrospektive Monografie alle Stationen seiner künstlerischen Entwicklung vor, von den bahnbrechenden fotorealistischen Werken, wie 'Peinlich' (1971), das in der Kombination aus Kinderbild und Comic-Bezug bereits wichtige thematische Stränge festlegt, über das Selbstporträt von 1982, das als Plattencover der Scorpions weltweite Berühmtheit erlangte, bis hin zu jüngeren Arbeiten, wie der verstörenden Serie 'Disasters of War', die schwer verletzte Mädchen in den Mittelpunkt der Darstellung rückt.0Exhibition: Albertina, Vienna, Austria (25.05.-13.10.2013). 0
