Montage and modern life, 1919-1942( Book )

10 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The development of photomontage techniques during the early 1920s and 1930s in the United States, Germany, and the Soviet Union had a profound influence on contemporary art and mass media, Montage and Modern Life uncovers the roots of this complex relationship. Through unexpected juxtapositions and discontinuous images and through some of the most sophisticated and least cultivated examples of montage, it demonstrates the way a common set of social and cultural themes was broadly articulated

Raven travelling : two centuries of Haida art( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 493 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

Andrea Zittel : critical space by Andrea Zittel( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first comprehensive publication on the influential contemporary artist focuses on the experimental nature of Andrea Zittel's signature objects, inhabitable sculptures, and other projects. In her work as an artist, Zittel investigates domestic and urban life in Western societies. Exploring the various aspects of living, the artist designs her own household settings to serve as a test case for her experimental living structures. Her work has provoked debates about the changed meaning of domestic and collective space and the possibilities for new adaptations to urban conditions today. Richly illustrated, Andrea Zittel: Critical Space includes nearly two hundred reproductions of Zittel's works of art, many of which are published here for the first time. The book includes over one hundred sculptures and drawings, documentation of early work, and recent site-specific work in the Mojave Desert of California. With essays that touch upon urbanism, architecture, design, and consumer culture, this catalog offers an extensive analysis of Zittel's contribution to contemporary trends in art and architecture

This visually stunning book is the first to chronicle the oeuvre of one of Canada's most compelling young artists, and includes essays from five internationally respected curators plus an interview with the artist himself. Accompanying the texts are spectacular reproductions of Jungen's most acclaimed works, including many new works created in 2004 and 2005.

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

10 editions published in 2008 in English and French and held by 267 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
