Cindy Sherman : retrospective by Cindy Sherman ( Book )
13 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and held by 1,093 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This comprehensive catalogue traces the career of Cindy Sherman, examining her achievements as one of the leading American artists of our time. By exploring the myriad constructions of female identity and the body in our culture, Sherman imitates and confronts assorted representational stereotypes, becoming for many an icon of the contemporary concerns of feminism and postmodernism. Essayists Amada Cruz, Elizabeth A. T. Smith, and Amelia Jones offer keen insight and observations from several distinct vantage points, demonstrating that Sherman's work is a lens through which to view contemporary art and its ongoing concern with the profound issues of the structures of the self. More than 200 images show the breadth of Sherman's body of work, from the Untitled Film Stills of the 1970s to series such as Centerfolds, Fashion, Disasters, Fairy Tales, and History Portraits, as well as photographs influenced by surrealist artists. Also included are intriguing excerpts from Sherman's notebooks, selections from her contact sheets, and numerous Polaroid studies, all of which shed light on the artist's process

Isa Genzken : retrospective by Isa Genzken ( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Isa Genzken is arguably one of the most important and influential female artists of the past 30 years, yet the breadth of her achievement -- which spans sculptures, paintings, photographs, collages, drawings, artist's books, films, installations and public works -- is still largely unknown in the United States. Published in conjunction with the first comprehensive retrospective of the artist's epically diverse body of work, this publication encompasses Genzken's work in all media over the past 40 years and is the most complete monograph on the artist available in English. Genzken has been part of the artistic discourse since she began exhibiting in the mid-1970s, but over the last decade a new generation of artists has been inspired by her radical inventiveness. The past ten years have been particularly productive for Genzken, who has created several bodies of work that have redefined assemblage for a new era. The catalogue presents Genzken's career, through essays exploring the unfolding of her practice from 1973 until today, as well as an expansive plate section that provides a chronological overview of all her most important bodies of work and key exhibitions. Born in Germany in 1948, Isa Genzken is one of Germany's most important living artists. In the mid-1970s, as a student at Düsseldorf's renowned Kunstakademie, she created geometric wood sculptures, which gained her early international acclaim (she exhibited these works at Documenta 7 and the Venice Biennale in 1982). Since then, she has made sculptures in plaster, concrete and epoxy resin. Ranging in size from maquettes to monumental, these abstract works are influenced by Minimalism, but are decidedly narrative. Paintings that examine ideas of surface and light, as well as photographs, collages, artist's books and films, followed in the 1990s. From the late 90s on, Genzken began to create increasingly complex sculptural installations"--Amazon.com, viewed December 18, 2013
