Past futures : science fiction, space travel, and postwar art of the Americas by Sarah J Montross( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the 1940s to the 1970s, visionary artists from across the Americas reimagined themes from science fiction and space travel. They mapped extraterrestrial terrain, created dystopian scenarios amid fears of nuclear annihilation, and ingeniously deployed scientific and technological subjects and motifs. This book offers a sumptuously illustrated exploration of how artists from the United States and Latin America visualized the future. Inspired variously by the "golden age" of science fiction, the Cold War, the space race, and the counterculture, these artists expressed both optimism and pessimism about humanity's prospects. Past Futures showcases work by more than a dozen artists, including the biomorphic cosmic spaces and hybrid alien-totemic figures painted by the Chilean artist Roberto Matta (1911--2002); the utopian 'Hydrospatial City' envisioned by Argentine Gyula Kosice (1924-- ); and 'Incidents of Mirror-Travel in the Yucatan', in which Robert Smithson (1938--1973) layered tropes of time travel atop Mayan ruins.0The artists respond to science fiction in film and literature and the media coverage of the space race; link myths of Europeans' first encounters with the New World to contemporary space exploration; and project futures both idealized and dystopian. The book, which accompanies an exhibition at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, also includes an essay by the editor and curator mapping central themes; an exploration of how Latin American artists have depicted astronomic phenomena, utopian projects, and the modern machine; an essay on space-age art in Argentina during the 1960s; and a study of Smithson and science fiction. 00Exhibition: Bowdoin College Museum of Art, Brunswick, USA (05.03. - 07.06.2015)

Night vision : nocturnes in American art, 1860-1960 by Joachim Homann( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This gorgeously illustrated book investigates how leading American artists of diverse aesthetic convictions responded in a range of media-including paintings, drawings, prints and photographs-to the unique challenges of picturing the night. Retooling their palette and reconsidering their techniques, artists cherished the night as a time of heightened alertness and active imagination. Mysterious and provocative, the darkness was experienced as liberating, both on an aesthetic and personal level-allowing artists to become invisible, turn inward and express personal truths in unique and poetic ways. Night Vision expands the conversation on American art and the rise of modernism, as it demonstrates how the theme of the night inspired artists who sought to leave behind established styles and traditions to better reflect the broader societal and technological shifts as well as a new understanding of the value of art as personal expression. Published in association with the Bowdoin College Museum of Art.00Exhibition: Bowdoin College Museum of Art, Maine, USA (27.6.-18.10.2015)
