Art of Engagement takes the first comprehensive look at the key role of California's art and artists in politics and culture since 1945. Tracing the remarkably fertile confluence of political agitation and passionately engaged art, Peter Selz leads readers on a journey that begins with the Nazi death camps and moves through the Bay Area's Free Speech Movement of 1964, the birth of Beat and hippie countercultures, the Chicano labor movement in the San Joaquin Valley, the beginning of the Black Panther Party in Oakland, and some of the most radical manifestations of the women's movement, gay lib

Nathan Oliveira by Peter Selz( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nathan Oliveira's passion for continuing an inner-directed artistic tradition attached to the human subject has persisted throughout his more than forty years as a painter and master printmaker. His art represents an ongoing dialogue with artists from Rembrandt to Goya to Munch, Beckmann, Giacometti, and de Kooning - whom he recognizes for their insights into the human condition. The human touch, so often absent from contemporary work, is distinct in the mark of Oliveira's brush, the tactile quality of his paint, and the unique printed surfaces of his monotypes. Active in the San Francisco Bay Area, Oliveira is widely regarded as a key figure in American art, and his paintings, monoprints, drawings, watercolors, and sculpture have attracted an international audience. This book is the most comprehensive study to date of Oliveira's career as artist and teacher. Generously illustrated with 183 images, more than 100 in color, and including valuable, previously unpublished biographical and bibliographical information, Nathan Oliveira will accompany the major traveling exhibition of the same name." "Peter Selz's authoritative text weaves key moments in Oliveira's professional life together with compelling readings of the paintings themselves. Selz, who curated the exhibition, succeeds brilliantly in establishing a sense of where Oliveira came from, what inspired him, and how he thought of himself as an artist. He discusses Oliveira's beginnings as the son of Portuguese immigrants, his early exposure to Bay Area artists, and the formative experience of studying with Max Beckmann. Selz also traces the artist's affinity to his older European contemporaries, his search for an expressive relationship between form and space that found resonance in presentation of the single figure, and the exhibitions and collaborations that shaped his career."--Jacket
The not-so-still life : a century of California painting and sculpture by Susan Landauer( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In illustrated essays, as entertaining as they are informative, The Not-So-Still Life traces the great variety of media and forms these artists have engaged as they have moved the still life not just off the table, but off the wall and into three dimensions. Susan Landauer, William H. Gerdts, and Patricia Trenton investigate a range of forces and influences - whether historical, sociological, economic, psychological, or biographical - that have played into this evolution, from the plein-air Impressionism of the early twentieth century to the Synchromist bouquets of Stanton Macdonald-Wright, the revolving table settings of Charles Ray, and the electronic sculptures of Alan Rath. In doing so they deepen our understanding of American art over the last century." "Presenting, interpreting, and celebrating the world-renowned and the lesser-known California artists who have uniquely defined and redefined the still life, this volume offers an exploration of the sensual pleasures, the aesthetic challenges, and the intellectual and perceptual associations of a century of art through the prism of a single genre."--Jacket

Border cantos by Richard Misrach( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[Richard Misrach] saw the border, [Guillermo Galindo] heard it, and by coming together across that line of artistic practice, they've now created these 'border cantos.' Misrach has been using the canto literary structure, borrowed from Dante and Ezra Pound, as a way of organizing his long-term photographic project, Desert cantos (1979 to present). But here the canto also moves off the page and into sound, opening up into Galindo's practice. In Italian, canto means 'song'; in Spanish, 'singing' and 'chant.' In this sense, all cantos are part eye and part ear, able to bee seen and heard at once."--Page 10
