Claes Oldenburg : the Sixties by Claes Oldenburg( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 524 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an extensive selection of drawings, collages, and magazine and newspaper clippings as well as a wealth of previously unpublished notebook pages, preparatory studies, and photographs taken by the artist.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"--

Dan Flavin, Lights by Dan Flavin( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the early 1960s, US artist Dan Flavin (1933-1996) began using commercially available fluorescent tubes in standard sizes and colours to create an unmistakable œuvre. Precision and careful calculation are bound together with a sensual aura. By choosing the tubes as the material for his works, Flavin signalised the increasing proximity of art with everyday life and the consumer world. The ways in which they are presented are derived from principles of minimalist sobriety."

Merce Cunningham by Merce Cunningham( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If Martha Graham was the founder of modern dance. Merce Cunningham is the founder of contemporary dance. His unique, expansive notion of the aesthetic possibilities of dance has for over five decades inspired the leading lights of contemporary art, music, and theater. Using "chance procedures" as the underlying structure for choreography. Cunningham liberated dance from its rigid adherence to a musical score. From the 1970s to the present he has experimented with film, video, and computers, and has collaborated with director Charles Atlas on several film and video dances. This book, the first major critical compilation on Cunningham's work, represents a response on the part of writers, painters, dancers, critics, and others on Cunningham's creative development -- from 1944 to 1999. An invaluable and essential book on a major artist, it offers detailed looks at, among other things, Cunningham's noted collaborations with the likes of John Cage, Nam June Paik, Robert Rauschenberg, and Jasper Johns, as well as texts about important performances, with photos; appreciation by Nureyev, Paul Taylor, and essays such as "Cunningham as Sculptor" and "Cunningham and Duchamp."
Feminist avant-garde : art of the 1970s : the Sammlung Verbund Collection, Vienna by Gabriele Schor( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With greater energy than any artistic movement before, the feminist avant-garde of the 1970s deconstructed society's image of womanhood, dismantling centuries' worth of projections, stereotypes, and male hegemony. For the first time in the history of art, women, in an act of collective consciousness-raising, took the representation of their sex in visual art into their own hands and unfolded a wide spectrum of self-determined female identities: provocative and radical, poetic and ironic. Gabriele Schor, director of the Sammlung Verbund Collection, coined the term the Feminist Avant-Garde in order to highlight the pioneering achievements of these artists. This book presents over six hundred works in the Sammlung Verbund Collection created by forty-eight women artists. Established in Vienna in 2004 by VERBUND AG, Austria's leading electricity provider and one of the largest producers of hydropower in Europe, the collection has two main foci: "Perceptions of Spaces and Places" and the "Feminist Avant-Garde of the 1970s"

'Gender Check' is the first comprehensive exhibition featuring art from Eastern Europe since the 1960s based on the theme of gender roles. 20 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the curator Bojana Pejic, along with a team of experts from 24 different countries, has put together a selection of over 400 works including paintings, sculpture, installations, photography, posters, films and videos. With over 200 artists, the exhibition paints an exceptionally diverse picture of a chapter in art history that until recently had been largely unknown and that could also act as an important addition to contemporary gender discourse

Gender check, a reader : art and theory in Eastern Europe( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After 1989, a serious body of knowledge has been produced in the former socialist states as well as in the West that theorizes the notion of gender and gender relations established in state-socialism and in the post-communist era. However, the existing volumes rarely (if ever) pay attention to the construction of femininity and masculinity in visual arts. The Gender Check reader presents, for the first time, an extensive collection of texts that explicitly analyze visual arts created before and after 1989 in the 'other' Europe in terms of gender and feminist theories
