Rodney Graham : through the forest by Rodney Graham( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in German and English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume was designed in collaboration with Rodney Graham and Yves Gevaert in conjunction with an exhibition of around one hundred pieces produced by the Canadian artist between 1978 and 2009. Graham (*1949 in Vancouver) uses a variety of media in these works, including books, video, sculptures, machines, paintings, photographs, installations, prints, and music; takes up key concepts of art history; and plays with problems of perception. His works require viewers to come up with art-historical or theoretical associations. Graham derives his source material from Sigmund Freud, Edgar Allan Poe, Georg Buchner, Jeff Wall, and many others, while at the same time dealing with them in a respectful, yet ironic manner. One extensive group of works is based on the artist's own unconventional library, and offers annotations, appendices, bookmarks, reading compendiums, as well as display furniture making stylistic reference to Donald Judd. This catalogue also features Graham's paintings, which explore the myths surrounding classic modern painters such as Picasso and other masters."--Publisher's website
Flashback : eine Revision der Kunst der 80er Jahre = Revisiting the art of the 80s : John Armleder [and others]( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in German and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Flashback" takes a close and critical look at a period regarded by many as the decade of painting and of the booming art market. This book with its cinematically inspired title dissects the last decade of the Cold War era and features works by some forty artists. What emerges from the diversity of artistic approaches is a picture of an heterogeneous decade, raising the question of whether it is appropriate to view art of the 80s as a category of its own."--BOOK JACKET
