Cindy Sherman by Eva Respini( Book )

22 editions published in 2012 in 4 languages and held by 982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cindy Sherman is one of the most influential and consistently original artists of our time. Masquerading as a myriad of characters in front of her own camera, Sherman creates invented personas and provocative tableaus that examine the construction of identity and the nature of representation. Her works speak to our increasingly image-saturated world, drawing on the unlimited supply of visual material provided by the mass media, pop culture, and art history. Whether portraying a career girl or a blond bombshell, a fashion victim or a clown, a French aristocrat or a society lady of a certain age, Sherman's work has always had the ability to reflect the ideas of the culture at large and to resonate with a wide audience. Cindy Sherman presents the most up-to-date overview of her groundbreaking career, from the mid-1970s to the present, and provides new insight into the work of this relentlessly innovative artist."--Publisher's website

Blank city( Visual )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blank city is an "absorbing snapshot of a daring time" (LA Times) when a disparate crew of renegade filmmakers emerged from an economically bankrupt and dangerous moment in New York history. From the late 1970's through the mid 80's, when the East Village was still a wasteland of cheap rent and cheap drugs, these directors created bold works that would go on to profoundly influence the development of independent film as we know it today. Made on DIY shoestring budgets with the pioneering musicians, visual artists, performers, and derelicts that ruled Downtown, the films surveyed in Blank city are fitting documents of an exhilarating cultural landscape. Director Céline Danhier weaves together an oral history of the "No Wave Cinema" and "Cinema of Transgression" movements, through compelling interviews with the luminaries who began it all. Featured players include acclaimed directors Jim Jarmusch and John Waters, actor-writer-director Steve Buscemi, Blondie's Debbie Harry, hip-hop legend Fab 5 Freddy, and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth. Crafted with rare extraordinary footage and first-person testimony, Blank city is a poetic love letter to New York and its artists, an intimate portrait conjuring "a glorious and grungy bygone past."

Art : a sex book by John Waters( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cult film director John Waters and art critic and curator Bruce Hainley offer a provocative and personal interpretation of the theme of sex and sexuality in art. They have selected a wide range of works, from graphic depictions of the body to abstract images suggesting or inviting different ideas of the erotic, and have arranged them into "rooms" just as in a real exhibition. Andy Warhol, Larry Clark, Richard Kern, Sarah Lucas, Cy Twombly, Lily van der Stokker, Jeff Burton, Karen Kilimnik and Paul McCarthy are just some of the 70 well known artists in the book, which includes paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography and video. The authors talk about their selection in a frank and elucidating conversation, presented in three parts. They consider many of the issues thrown up by the art and discuss - with humour and seriousness alike - how it reflects attitudes towards sex and the body."--
