The downtown book : the New York art scene, 1974-1984( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Downtown is more than just a location, it's an attitude--and in the 1970s and '80s, that attitude forever changed the face of America. This book charts the intricate web of influences that shaped the generation of experimental and outsider artists working in Downtown New York during the crucial decade from 1974 to 1984. Published in conjunction with the first major exhibition of downtown art (organized by New York University's Grey Art Gallery and Fales Library), The Downtown Book brings the Downtown art scene to life, exploring everything from Punk rock to performance art. The book probes trends that arose in the 1970s and solidified New York's reputation as arbiter of the postmodern American avant-garde. By 1974, the hippie euphoria of the previous decade, with its optimism, free love, and paeans to personal fulfillment, was over. In its place emerged a new kind of experimentation--in art, sex, drugs, and rock and roll. The seven essays featured here examine from different perspectives how Downtown artists constantly pushed the limits of both traditional media and the art world. Art critic Carlo McCormick addresses the energy, power, drugs, and nonstop erotic motion that propelled the scene. Music historian Bernard Gendron explores how minimalism, loft jazz, and Punk all occupied the same Downtown spaces. RoseLee Goldberg, the noted scholar and critic of performance art, looks back at ten years of its ascendancy Downtown. English professor Robert Siegle casts a critical eye on the literature of the Downtown scene. Librarian and archivist Marvin J. Taylor surveys Downtown as both geography and metaphor, and grapples with the question of how best to organize and preserve materials that often challenge the very notion of the archive
Police pictures : the photograph as evidence by Sandra S Phillips( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mug shot, the scene of the crime, photographic evidence - all of these are predicated on the belief that the photograph shows the truth, unvarnished and indisputable. But does it? In a remarkable survey of over 120 images from public and private sources, Police Pictures questions the conjunction of photography and enforcement and challenges the ability of image to represent the truth. From haunting photographs of the Lincoln conspirators to Weegee's sordid murder victims and the prisoner portraits taken by the Khmer Rouge, Police Pictures explores the policing function of photography - and the controversial manipulations of images by and for the forces of authority - in a catalogue of the power of the law and the lens
