Happenings : an illustrated anthology by Michael Kirby( Book )

2 editions published between 1965 and 1966 in English and held by 914 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Michael Kirby sets out to define and describe those curious performances which have taken on the name of happenings. The descriptions-in words and pictures-are illuminating. The introduction traces the influences--of action painting, surrealism, abstract expressionism, Dadaism, W.C. Fields, and the Marx Brothers--upon the form of happenings. More informative is the section in which five makers of happenings state the aims and devices of their creations. These statements are followed by the scripts of happenings and by long meticulous descriptions of the performance of each happening. The performances which are described have been liberally illustrated with photographs which give an excellent idea of the appearance of the production(s)

13 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Best known for recasting familiar objects in unfamiliar textures, media, and dimensions, Claes Oldenburg has long challenged his audience to rethink the everyday with works such as French Fries and Ketchup (1963) and Soft Toilet (1966). Oldenburg's masterful drawings reveal another facet of this pioneering artist, inviting viewers to enter his "fantasy' as they explore Oldenburg's relationship with the medium, from sensitive early explorations to veteran campaigns as a refined and accomplished draftsman." "Drawing is crucial to Oldenburg's art: drawings note the beginning of an idea; they develop the thought; they give birth to his sculptures. The medium offers a flexibility particularly suited to the artist's extraordinary visions, enhancing the effectiveness of his manipulations of scale and perspective in sculpture. Pieces such as Proposed Colossal Monument for Central Park North, N.Y.C.- Teddy Bear (1965); Various Positions of a Giant Lipstick to Replace the Fountain of Eros, Piccadilly Circus, London (1966); Proposal for a Cathedral in the Form of a Colossal Faucet, Lake Union, Seattle (1972); and Blueberry Pie a la Mode, Sliding down a Hill (1996) usher viewers into a chimerical world of the mundane made significant."--Jacket

Riesige Hamburger und Soft-Toiletten - mit verfremdeten Nachbildungen der Konsumwelt und Environments avancierte Claes Oldenburg zu einer Schlüsselfigur der Pop Art. Heute sind seine Landschaftskunst und Monumentalskulpturen moderne Denkmale, die den amerikanischen Objektkünstler weit über die Kunstszene hinaus bekannt machten. Gerald Fox begleitete Oldenburg 1995 beim Aufbau eines dieser Grossprojekte und bei der Vorbereitung seiner Anthology-Retrospektive im Guggenheim Museum. Künstler wie Roy Lichtenstein geben Einblick in die Welt eines vielseitigen Künstlers, der alltägliche Gegenstände in sinnlich-ironische Kunstwerke verwandelt. (Quelle: DVD-Hülle)
