Matthew Barney : the Cremaster cycle by Matthew Barney( Book )

21 editions published in 2002 in English and German and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CREMASTER 1 (1995) is a musical revue performed on the blue Astroturf playing field of Bronco Stadium in Boise, Idaho - Barney's hometown. CREMASTER 2 (1999) is rendered as a gothic Western that introduces conflict into the system. On the biological level it corresponds to the phase of fetal development during which sexual division begins. CREMASTER 3 (2002) is set in New York City and narrates the construction of the Chrysler Building, which is in itself a character - host to inner, antagonistic forces at play for access to the process of (spiritual) transcendence. CREMASTER 4 (1994) adheres most closely to the project's biological model. This penultimate episode describes the system's onward rush toward descension despite its resistance to division. The logo for this chapter is the Manx triskelion - three identical armored legs revolving around a central axis. Set on the Isle of Man, the film absorbs the island's folklore as well as its more recent incarnation as host to the Tourist Trophy motorcycle race. When total descension is finally attained in CREMASTER 5 (1997), it is envisioned as a tragic love story set in the romantic dreamscape of late-nineteenth-Century Budapest. The film is cast in the shape of a lyric opera. Biological metaphors shifted form to inhabit emotional states - longing and despair - that become musical leitmotivs in the orchestral score. The opera's primary characters - the Queen of Chain (played by Ursula Andress) and her Diva, Magician, and Giant (all played by Barney) - enact collectively the final release promised by the project as a whole
Picasso, inside the image : prints from the Ludwig Museum, Cologne by Pablo Picasso( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pablo Picasso was the most innovative graphic artist of this century. With his highly original printmaking techniques and unorthodox, nonlinear approach to style, he produced a body of work in this medium that has never been equaled. Picasso: Inside the Image focuses entirely on the graphic work, with examples from the outstanding collection of prints belonging to the German art historian Dr. Peter Ludwig. Etchings, lithographs, linocuts, engravings and aquatints from all periods of Picasso's career are illustrated in the finest detail. Many of them represent key documents in twentieth-century art: The Frugal Repast, the cubist Nude in an Armchair, Vollard Suite, and Minotauromachy among others - true masterpieces that demonstrate Picasso's imaginative and technical genius. Complementing this selection are full-color illustrations showing five rarely seen print plates."--BOOK JACKET
Claes Oldenburg : the Sixties by Claes Oldenburg( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This comprehensive monograph explores the conceptual complexity and diversity of Claes Oldenburg's early work to reveal this influential artist's extraordinary inventiveness. Accompanying an exhibition of Oldenburg's seminal early work, this publication examines the breadth of his artistic career from the late 1950s to 1970. It features works including the landmark installations The Street and The Store and their accompanying performances; the highly influential spectacular sculptures of everyday objects as well as drawings and preparatory collages for public projects from the 1960s. The book traces the development of Oldenburg's practice as it follows his work up to the Mouse Museum. Also included in the publication is an extensive chronology, alongside notes as well as a variety of installation views that showcase the careful consideration given to modes of presentation. In addition to imagery of his Pop icons, this richly illustrated book contains an extensive selection of drawings, collages, and magazine and newspaper clippings as well as a wealth of previously unpublished notebook pages, preparatory studies, and photographs taken by the artist. This volume probes diverse aspects of his work to offer fresh perspectives on Oldenburg's artistic development and unprecedented insights into the conceptual process of his artistic explorations"--
Yves Klein by Sidra Stich( Book )

9 editions published in 1994 in 3 languages and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yves Klein is one of the most extraordinary and influential figures in post-war avant-garde art. In less than a decade - up until his untimely death in 1962 - he forged a career and built up a body of work that together have influenced and inspired contemporaries and subsequent generations of artists worldwide. Klein sought in his art to liberate the senses, to heighten our sensibility and to intensify our experience of life. In this comprehensive review of his art and ideas, Sidra Stich examines the full range of his diverse creative output - his paintings and sculptures, installations, meticulously documented performances, his copious writings, and his proposals and drawings for visionary projects - and sets them within the context of the art of the time to assess Klein's originality and his legacy

William Eggleston : Los Alamos by William Eggleston( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents a series of photographs that has never before been shown, yet it contains a blueprint of Eggleston's aesthetics, his subtle use of subdued color hues, the casual elegance of his trenchant observations of the mysteries of the mundane. Photographs were shot in Eggleston's native Memphis and on countless road trips across the American South from 1964 to 1968 and from 1972 to 1974.--Publisher's description

Remembering forward : Australian aboriginal painting since 1960 by Kasper König( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Remembering Forward presents works by nine of the most prominent Australian Aboriginal artists: Paddy Bedford, Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Queenie McKenzie, Dorothy Napangardi, Rover Thomas, Ronnie Tjampitjinpa, Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri, Tim Leura Tjapaltjarri and Turkey Tolson Tjupurrula whose work spans the last forty years of contemporary Australian Indigenous painting in the Central and Western Deserts and the Kimberley region. The works are situated in, and generate, a peculiar tension between traditional and modern and past and present. On the one hand, they usually take as their subject the so called 'Dreamtime' of prehistory from which myths of the earth's and humankind's creation have been handed down. In that regard they are deeply traditional. On the other, these artists have radically changed their medium and method of art-making over the last forty years. Inherited practices of sand- and body-painting have been transformed such that the paintings are executed in acrylic on canvas or other portable media. These changes afforded the artists entry to the global art market. Thus they have adjusted to address an outside public and keep the images free of those parts of the Dreamings that, in their own culture, are reserved for the initiated. Two collections of bark paintings not only present this fascinating medium, but also provide the historical context for exhibitions of Indigenous Australian art in Western art museums
Gerhard Richter : large abstracts by Gerhard Richter( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and German and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Painting - its principles, boundaries, and possibilities - is the central theme of the extensive body of work by Gerhard Richter (1932 in Dresden), an oeuvre has been characterized by stylistic contrasts since the very beginning." "This elegant volume of color plates featuring profound essays by Benjamin H. D. Buchloh, Beate Sontgen, and Gregor Stemmrich focuses on the artist's abstract paintings, which have comprised a dominant portion of his collective works since the eighties. The book does not trace the development of form and content in the paintings, but concentrates instead on the paintings that thematically comprise a homogenous body of work. It is based on the assertion that Richter s abstract paintings are the results of various painterly processes that are not guided in a particular direction by a content-related precept. The featured paintings were produced between 1986 and 2006 and place emphasis on large-format paintings characterized by a prodigious painterly density."--BOOK JACKET
Picasso, the Ludwig Collection : paintings, drawings, sculptures, ceramics, prints by Pablo Picasso( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das achte Feld : Geschlechter, Leben und Begehren in der Kunst seit 1960 : [Museum Ludwig, Köln, 19. August - 12. November 2006] = The eighth square : gender, life, and desire in the arts since 1960( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in German and English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is more to sexuality than family politics and TV shows lead one to believe. Sexuality also always means metamorphosis, desire, power, seduction, sorrow, glamour, and misery. Through art the entire spectrum and fascination of this theme can be experienced. Art not only permits people to safely play with gender, with forbidden desires, but it is the only thing that comprehends sexuality's contradictions. What does that mean for deviant desires? What does it mean after liberalization, in a world that has been normalized to death? What does this world look like for feminine men, for masculine women? Are these categories valid any longer?" "Featuring essays by Judith Butler, Douglas Crimp, Diedrich Diederichsen, Harald Fricke, Julia Friedrich, Hanne Loreck, Thomas Meinecke, Eva Meyer, Cristina Nord, and Frank Wagner, and works by more than eighty artists, The Eighth Square is not limited to historical and social developments. The book focuses for the first time on all facets of drag, gender, queerness, and transsexuality - here they are treated as more than just a motif, and they are even allowed to be erotic."--BOOK JACKET
Looking for mushrooms : Beat poets, hippies, funk, minimal art : San Francisco 1955-68 by Barbara Engelbach( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in German and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Balthus, time suspended : paintings and drawings 1932-1960 by Sabine Rewald( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Balthus's most important works were created between 1932 and 1960, when he lived in Paris and in Chateau de Chassy; a dilapidated manor in Burgundy. This period started with a scandal: the large-format pictures shown at his first solo exhibition in the Paris Galerie Pierre in 1934 have seemingly familiar motifs - young women standing at windows, receiving music instruction or grooming themselves. But they are charged with an aggressive eroticism that shocked the viewers - and were meant to do so. In the following decades Balthus painted portraits of contemporaries, street scenes and landscapes, and time and again his favorite motif: young girls on the threshold of puberty, that erotic state of uncertainty between childhood and womanhood. Many of these works undisputedly belong to the catalogue of twentieth-century masterpieces." "This volume appears on the occasion of the very first Balthus exhibition in Germany organized by the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, presenting 76 paintings and drawings from Balthus's most creative years."--Jacket
