The Baroque world of Fernando Botero by John Sillevis( Book )

15 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Accompanying the artist's first American retrospective in more than thirty years, The Baroque World of Fernando Botero is the most extensive study of his life and work to date. Drawn exclusively from Botero's private collection, the one hundred works featured in this book, including previously unpublished paintings and drawings, represent the full scope of his oeuvre from a uniquely personal perspective. Many of these - portraits of friends and family members and remembered scenes - have remained in the artist's possession since their creation, while others he has bought back over the years as markers of significant developments in his career. Three essays examine the artist's creative life, from the aesthetic environment in which Botero developed his unique style to his catalyzing influence on the Colombian art world of the 1960s and '70s."--Jacket
New worlds : Russian art and society, 1900-1937 by David Elliott( Book )

27 editions published in 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 1900 and 1937 radical political and cultural changes took place in Russia with cataclysmic rapidity and diverse inspiration. A new generation of artists, writers and political theorists united in a rejection of the values of the past and a relentless search for a new and modern world. The book recreates the age which, in many respects, has shaped our thought and the culture in which we live. New Worlds offers a kaleidoscopic panorama of the creations and innovations of the period, starting and ending with the Russian pavilions at the Paris World Exhibitions of 1900 and 1937. The political figures, from Nicholas II to Kerensky and from Lenin to Stalin, are present here, as well as the many and varied artists' groups like the Symbolists, the Acmeists, the Futurists and the Constructivists; these and, above all, the great number of individual artists, writers, poets, theatre designers and directors, dancers and choreographers, musicians, film-makers, photographers, graphic designers, cartoonists and textile, fashion and pottery designers gave vital expression to a new world. Their vision, along with their achievements, were to perish in the 1930s under Stalin when idealism was suppressed in the name of ideology. Only now can we fully appreciate those years of regeneration as a triumph of the imagination and of the human spirit."--Jacket

Bye bye Kitty!!! : between heaven and hell in contemporary Japanese art by David Elliott( Book )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent decades Japanese art has achieved immense popularity in the West while being little understood. Critics have focused on the superficiality and infantilism they find prevalent in much of the work, while many Westerners are familiar with the country's artistic side solely through manga and anime. Bye Bye Kitty!!! offers a more incisive and wide-ranging view of the contemporary Japanese art scene, depicted through the works of fifteen artists, ranging in age from twenty-seven to forty-five and working in painting, sculpture, installation, photography, and video. The book's title invokes the subtle irony and subversive techniques adopted by this new generation of artists in their rebellion against the kawaii, or 'cute, ' aesthetic of mainstream Japanese culture. An essay by David Elliott provides an overview of the artists and explores many of the societal questions, such as the role of feminism, the rise of the 'salaryman, ' and reflections on the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, featured in their works. A contribution by Tetsuya Ozaki illuminates the history and culture of Japan's current Heisei era, which began in January 1989 after the death of Emperor Hirohito. The artists featured in Bye Bye Kitty!!! demonstrate that they have the power not only to reconfigure international stereotypes about the current state of Japanese art but also to shape the very landscape of contemporary Japanese art itself."
Hiroshi Sugimoto by Kerry Brougher( Book )

15 editions published in 2005 in English and Japanese and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hiroshi Sugimoto is one of the most significant Japanese contemporary artists to have emerged in the last 30 years. In his photographic series, as well as his experiments with sculptural objects, architecture and exhibition design, Sugimoto attempts to highlight and expand our perception of such abstract qualities as time, light, space, movement, spirit - and the nature of reality itself. "Hiroshi Sugimoto: End of Time" represents the first chance to survey the artist's whole photographic work, made from the 1970s until the present. It includes his best-known works, such as the Dioramas, which he photographed, in life-like detail, at natural history and other museums; Seascapes, depicting oceans around the world; Theatres, for which he sets his exposure times to the length of the film showing; and other series: Portraits, Architecture, Sea of Buddha and Conceptual Forms. The exhibition also includes the artist's most recent experiments: fusions of photography with architecture and traditional Noh theatre. Colors of Shadow, a new series of color photographs of changing light in the artist's studio, will have its world premiere. The exhibition is designed by Sugimoto and incorporates a Noh stage, on which a Noh play will be performed

Marina Abramović : objects, performance, video, sound by Marina Abramović( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and German and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marina Abramovic (born 1946) is one of the foremost contemporary performance artists. She has used her body and personal history both as a social metaphor and as a material for her work. This publication examines the whole range of her large production to date and establishes the common ground between her installations, videos, performances and objects. A series of articles written by leading art critics and specialists discuss the earliest paintings, sound installations and performances made in Yugoslavia during the 1960s and early 1970s; the years of collaborative performances with Ulay (1976-88); the videos, made both collaboratively and singly throughout her career; the so-called transitional objects which demand the participation of the viewer in order for them to be activated (1988- ); the new, baroque and violently "theatrical" meta-performances Biography (1992) and Delusional (1994) and, most recently, the power objects, which indicate a new departure."--Jacket

On curating. interviews with fourteen international curators by Carolee Thea( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On Curating 2, Carolee Thea's new volume of interviews with 14 of today's leading curators, explores the lively system of art biennials that is thriving around the world--particularly outside Europe and America. Spawned by their more formal Western predecessors and motivated by the forces of history and politics, the newer incarnations of the biennial often occur in the cities of the postcolonial world and the Global South, as well as in former socialist countries. The new generation of curators who are organizing these surprisingly provocative and experimental exhibitions hail from cities as diverse as Bogotá, Dakar, Havana, Jakarta, Jerusalem, Lagos, Mumbai, Seoul and Zagreb, and they are the subjects of the interviews collected in this book
