James Turrell : a retrospective by Michael Govan( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Published in conjunction with a major retrospective, this comprehensive volume illuminates the origins and motivations of James Turrell's incredibly diverse and exciting body of work--from his Mendota studio days to his monumental work-in-progress Roden Crater. Whether he's projecting shapes on a flat wall or into the corner of a gallery space, James Turrell is perpetually asking us to "go inside and greet the light"--Evoking his Quaker upbringing. In fact, all of Turrell's work has been influenced by his life experiences with aviation, science, and psychology, and as a key player in Los Angeles's exploding art scene of the 1960s. Enhanced by thoughtful essays and an illuminating interview with the artist, this monograph explores every aspect of Turrell's career to date--from his early geometric light projections, prints, and drawings, through his installations exploring sensory deprivation and seemingly unmodulated fields of colored light, to recent two-dimensional experiments with holograms. It also features an in-depth look at Roden Crater, a site-specific intervention into the landscape near Flagstaff, Arizona, which will be presented through models, plans, photographs, and drawings. Fans of this highly influential artist will find much to savor in this wide-ranging and beautiful book, featuring specially commissioned new photography by Florian Holzherr."--Publisher's website
Revelation : representations of Christ in photography by Nissan Perez( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the course of the development of photography individual artists have made frequent use of Christian iconography, and some of the resulting images have become milestones in the history of the medium. While addressing the issue of the influence of other art forms on photographic representations of Christ, this book also examines the independent evolution of photography's tradition of portraying scenes from the New Testament over a century and a half of image-making. The entire photographic tradition of representing Christ is explored, including the representation of Christ in films. From the contemplative to the controversial, the images represent the work of an outstanding cast of international photographers, including Paul Strand, Julia Margaret Cameron, Man Ray, Lewis Hine, Robert Mapplethorpe, Pierre et Gilles, Annie Leibovitz, Sam Taylor-Wood and many others

A century of Israeli art by Yigal Zalmona( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A Century of Israeli Art presents the story of modern Israel's visual culture, beginning with the pre-state years of Zionist art in the early 20th century and extending to the present day, as a new generation of Israeli artists rises to international prominence in the 21st century. Framing artistic developments in the context of successive periods, author Yigal Zalmona describes the many ways in which Israel's art has been influenced by its social and political history. This look at the wider picture goes hand-in-hand with detailed, enlightening analyses of seminal artworks from every period. Zalmona surveys the early days of the Bezalel School, founded in 1906 in the spirit of the Arts and Crafts movement; Land-of-Israel art during an era of nation-building; the pre-eminence of international modernism and Lyrical Abstraction after 1948; social-activist and conceptual art in the 1970s; and the recent embrace of photography and video. Throughout its evolution, Israeli art has reflected a complex cultural discourse revolving around questions of identity - Western versus Eastern, local versus universal, national and ethnic, collective and personal. Drawing on the author's decades of accumulated knowledge and activity in the field of Israeli art - as historian, critic, teacher, and curator - and aimed at a broad audience, this book will be fascinating reading for art-lovers and for all those with an interest in Israel's cultural history, offering a compelling example of the interaction between visual art and a dynamic, multifaceted society. -- Provided by publisher
Designers' self image : an international showcase of identity graphics by Joshua Marcus( Book )
6 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Displaced visions : émigré photographers of the 20th century by Nissan Perez( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The early practitioners of photography in the late 19th century and first decades of the 20th century shaped the evolving language of the medium by expanding the limits of the photographic vision. Many of these pioneers were immigrants - people displaced by choice or, quite often, by necessity. These photographers became observers and interpreters of their new surroundings through the filters of their different cultures, languages and religions. Photography in the 20th century (particularly the Modernist vision) is deeply indebted to them. Displaced Visions reconsiders the work and influence of key figures in modernist photography from the point of view of their status as immigrants, considering how this condition affected their vision and creativity and enhanced the development of the photographic language in general."--Publisher's website
