Raven travelling : two centuries of Haida art( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The core of this powerful assemblage is an exploration of the extraordinary achievement of Haida art, as art. Interwoven throughout the text and the finely reproduced images is a skillful intermingling of key themes: the defining myths of origins; the structures of ownership and privilege; the relationship of the people to the land; the influence of the early master-carvers; the monumental achievements of Charles Edenshaw, Bill Reid, Robert Davidson, and many others; the Haida and colonialism; and hybrid tendencies in contemporary Haida art. From oral histories and genealogies to the breakout aesthetics of contemporary Haida work in many media, this book celebrates a great art in a contemporary context."--Publisher's website

TruthBeauty : pictorialism and the photograph as art, 1845-1945( Book )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and French and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The hauntingly beautiful photographs created within the Pictorialist movement are among the most spectacular works of art in the medium's history. Beginning in the late nineteenth century, renowned artists sought to elevate photography - until then seen largely as a scientific tool for documentation - to an art form equal to painting. Adopting a soft-focus approach and utilizing dramatic effects of light, richly coloured tones and bold technical experimentation, Pictorialist artists opened up a distinctly new world of visual expression in photography - an aesthetic that continues to be highly influential more than a hundred years later." "TruthBeauty showcases the artworks from a major exhibition organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery in collaboration with George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film. This book contains reproductions of 121 photographs, tracing the evolution of Pictorialism over the three decades in which it predominated. It marks the first time that Pictorialist photographs by artists from North America, the United Kingdom, continental Europe, Japan and Australia are shown in a single publication, providing an overview of this first truly international art movement. It includes scholarly essays on Pictorialism worldwide as well as a selection of historic texts by Pictorialist artists."--BOOK JACKET
Brian Jungen by Daina Augaitis( Book )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 372 full-colour images, this book is the first to chronicle the oeuvre of one of North America's most compelling young artists. To complement the art there are essays from five internationally respected curators plus an interview with the artist himself. Daina Augaitis offers an introduction and overview of Brian Jungen's diverse works. Cuauhtemoc Medina explores Jungen's mask series in relation to global commodity flows and the politics of resistance. Trevor Smith discusses Jungen's unique recasting of minimalism, while Ralph Rugoff and Kitty Scott consider the significance of two of Jungen's major installations. Finally, Simon Starling engages the artist in a wide-ranging conversation about art, his influences and his upcoming projects." "Accompanying the text are spectacular reproductions of some of Jungen's most acclaimed pieces, including Prototypes of New Understanding (1999-2005), his mask series made from Nike Air Jordan basketball shoes; Shapeshifter (2000) and Cetology (2002), his whale sculptures constructed from plastic lawn chairs, and Habitat 04: Cite radieuse des chats/Cats Radiant City (2004), his temporary shelter for homeless cats inspired by Moshe Safdie's Habitat housing complex."--BOOK JACKET

"Complementing the essays are more than 300 images printed in full colour or in halftones. Among them are artworks from the 1927 Exhibition of Canadian West Coast Art: Native and Modern and photographs, films, tourist brochures, and maps documenting the British Columbia of Carr's day. However, it is the art that dominates, with over 150 paintings, drawings, and caricatures, as well as rugs and pottery by Emily Carr in addition to works by contemporary colleagues."--Jacket

Andreas Gursky : Werke 80-08 = works 80-08 : Kunstmuseen Krefeld, Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Vancouver Art Gallery by Andreas Gursky( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andreas Gursky (*1955) gehört seit vielen Jahren zu den bedeutendsten Fotokünstlern weltweit. Mit dieser Monografie wird zum ersten Mal der Versuch gemacht, das Œuvre des Künstlers in seiner ganzen enzyklopädischen Breite aufzufächern. Gursky wählte mehr als 150 Werke aus seinem Bilderfundus, der zurückreicht bis in seine Studienzeit an der Folkwang Hochschule Essen, gefolgt von der Studienzeit an der Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in der Klasse von Bernd und Hilla Becher. Angefangen bei den frühesten Arbeiten wie den Pförtnerlogen und weiteren unveröffentlichten Fotografien spannt sich ein gewaltiger Bogen bis zu den jüngsten Werken, die eigens für die begleitende Ausstellungsreihe konzipiert wurden. In Gurskys enzyklopädischer Morphologie bildet jede einzelne Fotografie einen notwendigen Mosaikstein, und über die Zeitspanne von nunmehr 28 Jahren ergibt sich daraus eine umfassende Sicht auf die globale Welt.
