Guest of Cindy Sherman by Paul H-O( Visual )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul H-O became a fixture of the New York art scene in the 1990s with his public access show GalleryBeat. Armed with a video camera, he attended art gallery openings, amusing some with his candid, witty assessments of their work, but also winning many fans. Among the latter was Cindy Sherman, the press-shy artist who is internationally acknowledged as one of the world's most gifted and significant visual talents. Cindy invites Paul to her studio for a series of exclusive interviews and through these videotaped encounters, he gains unprecedented insight into her artistic process and a romantic relationship blossoms. Their initial bliss ends when Paul finds himself wracked with anxiety about his own personality becoming subsumed by his role as Cindy's guest at the celebrity-studded openings and dinners she regularly attends."--Film's website

Laurie Simmons : in and around the house, photographs, 1976-78 by Laurie Simmons( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A seminal book by one of the first artists of the Pictures generation to use set-up photography to create images with intensely psychological subtexts. it features the first comprehensive survey of Simmons' early black-and-white photographs, the importance of which Carol Squiers describes in her essay: "What Simmons did with domestic subjects was unique... Her use and manipulation of miniaturized dolls, objects, and interiors gave the photographs the abstracted quality of a dream, which was markedly different from the cool... images of other artists. By using objects that so clearly evoked childhood, she was also more directly referencing personal memory." This previously unpublished early work put Laurie Simmons on the forefront of a new generation of artists, predominantly women, whose use of the media as subject began a new dialogue on contemporary art. In Simmons' own words, "Re-examining the pictures, I became aware of a potential narrative and structure that hadn't been obvious to me during the years that I was shooting. I actually began to see a house with many rooms, as well as indoor and outdoor space. I also began to think about a female presence, both real and implied, and to formally locate a space that didn't exist in my mind originally when I was exploring the territory with my camera. The project that you see here took shape when hundreds of long-forgotten images were revisited with the notion of creating a home within In and Around the House." -- back cover inset

Laurie Simmons : walking, talking, lying by Laurie Simmons( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Laurie Simmons is one of the first contemporary American photographers to create elaborately staged narrative photographs. Using dolls to act out piquant scenarios within specially constructed environments, she has slyly commented on contemporary culture while recapturing a sense of her childhood in an era she recalls as "both beautiful and lethal". Populated by housewives, ventriloquists' dummies, and familiar objects in unfamiliar guises, her diverse tableaux are often infused with bittersweet nostalgia yet charged with a disquieting sense of dislocation."--Jacket
