The art of Joan Brown by Karen Tsujimoto( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joan Brown (1938-1990) emerged from the post-abstract expressionist era in the late 1950s as one of a lively group of Northern California artists whose work gave rise to Bay Area figurative painting, Beat culture, and funk art, and helped establish California as a major creative center in the United States
Smile of the Buddha : Eastern philosophy and Western art from Monet to today by Jacquelynn Baas( Book )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Smile of the Buddha explores the influences of Asian worldviews and particularly Buddhism on the art of Europe and America during the modern era. In her informative introduction and essays on twenty well-known artists, Jacquelynn Baas analyzes how the teachings of the Buddha offered alternatives to Western intellectual conceptions of art and traces the various ways this inspiration materialized in artworks. The influence of Buddhism on art from the last quarter of the nineteenth century to the present has been greater than historians and critics generally recognize, Baas claims. In considering essential questions about the relationship of art and life, her timely and illustrated book expands our perspective on how spirituality and creativity inspire and inform one another. Baas's insights and the images she presents give the reader a new understanding and appreciation of a diverse array of Western artworks."--Jacket
Buddha mind in contemporary art( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Buddha Mind in Contemporary Art documents the growing presence of Buddhist perspectives in contemporary culture. This shift began in the nineteenth century and is now pervasive in many aspects of everyday experience. In the arts especially, the increasing importance of process over product has promoted a profound change in the relationship between artist and audience. But while artists have been among the most perceptive interpreters of Buddhism in the West, art historians and critics have been slow to develop the intellectual tools to analyze the impact of Buddhist concepts. This timely, multi-faceted volume explores the relationships between Buddhist practice and the contemporary arts in lively essays by writers from a range of disciplines and in revealing interviews with some of the most influential artists of our time. Elucidating the common ground between the creative mind, the perceiving mind, and the meditative mind, the contributors tackle essential questions about the relationship of art and life. Among the writers are curators, art critics, educators, and Buddhist commentators in psychology, literature, and cognitive science. They consider the many Western artists today who recognize the Buddhist notion of emptiness, achieved through focused meditation, as a place of great creative potential for the making and experiencing of art. The artists featured in the interviews, all internationally recognized, include Maya Lin, Bill Viola, and Ann Hamilton. Extending earlier twentieth-century aesthetic interests in blurring the boundaries of art and life, the artists view art as a way of life, a daily practice, in ways parallel to that of the Buddhist practitioner. Their works, woven throughout the book, richly convey how Buddhism has been both a source for and a lens through which we now perceive art
Fluxus and the essential questions of life( Book )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fluxus--from the Latin, meaning "to flow"--Was a radical, international network of artists, composers, and designers in the 1960s and 1970s noted for blurring the boundaries between what we term "art" and what makes up everyday life. Following the work of American Fluxus founder George Maciunus, Fluxus and the Essential Questions of Life presents a variety of objects that express the Fluxus mission, while empowering readers to challenge the presumptions we bring to the concept and practice of art making. Based on a large-scale traveling exhibition first organized at Dartmouth College's Hood Museum of Art, this book chronicles the movement in the form of an art self-help book, playfully providing answers to fourteen key questions such as "Art--what is it good for?" and "What am I?" via Fluxus works. Featuring over eighty color and black-and-white illustrations, accompanied by essays from curator Jacquelynn Baas, Fluxus scholars Hannah Higgins and Jacob Proctor, and Fluxus artist Ken Friedman, this book will make an original contribution to our understanding of this provocative moment in modern art."--Publisher's website

Chicago makes modern : how creative minds changed society( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chicago is a city dedicated to the modern—from the skyscrapers that punctuate its skyline to the spirited style that inflects many of its dwellings and institutions, from the New Bauhaus to Hull-House. Despite this, the city has long been overlooked as a locus for modernism in the arts, its rich tradition of architecture, design, and education disregarded. Still the modern in Chicago continues to thrive, as new generations of artists incorporate its legacy into fresh visions for the future. Chicago Makes Modern boldly remaps twentieth-century modernism from our new-century perspective by asking an imperative question: How did the modern mind—deeply reflective, yet simultaneously directed—help to dramatically alter our perspectives on the world and make it new?Returning the city to its rightful position at the heart of a multidimensional movement that changed the face of the twentieth century, Chicago Makes Modern applies the missions of a brilliant group of innovators to our own time. From the radical social and artistic perspectives implemented by Jane Addams, John Dewey, and Buckminster Fuller to the avant-garde designs of László Moholy-Nagy and Mies van der Rohe, the prodigious offerings of Chicago's modern minds left an indelible legacy for future generations. Staging the city as a laboratory for some of our most heralded cultural experiments, Chicago Makes Modern reimagines the modern as a space of self-realization and social progress—where individual visions triggered profound change. Featuring contributions from an acclaimed roster of contemporary artists, critics, and scholars, this book demonstrates how and why the Windy City continues to drive the modern world."

Ally : Janine Antoni, Anna Halprin, Stephen Petronio by Fabric Workshop and Museum( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ally brings together three artist personalities who are all outstanding in their fields: the sculptor and photographer Janine Antoni and the dancers and choreographers Anna Halprin and Stephen Petronio. Together they created a series of works - sculptures and installations as well as film and performance artworks - which the volume reproduces in impressive photographs. When invited to create a retrospective of her sculptural works, the artist Janine Antoni preferred to ask herself what her works would look like when interpreted by other artists and translated into movement. Together with the choreographers Anna Halprin and Stephen Petronio she created unique performance artworks whose main focus lies on corporeality. It reveals the enormous potential that lies in the combination of sculpture and dance. Critical essays by writers and art theorists accompany the encounter between artists from different generations and genres and show how they have created together a new pictorial language."--Provided by publisher

Auguste Lepère and the artistic revival of the woodcut in France, 1875-1895 by Jacquelynn Baas( )

11 editions published between 1982 and 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lepere was the originator of the bois original--the single-sheet artist's woodcut as worthy of critical attention as any other original art form. In his exploration of the woodcut aesthetic, which evolved in part from a simultaneous study of both Japanese and fifteenth and sixteenth-century European traditions, Lepere was joined by other pioneers such as Lucien Pissarro, Emile Bernard, Henri Riviere, Henri Guerard, Charles Maurin, and Felix Vallotton. During the late 1880s Symbolist aesthetics, the

El principio Asia : China, Japón e India y el arte contemporáneo en España (1957-2017) by Fundación Juan March( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in Spanish and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La exposición quiere hacer visible la influencia de las culturas japonesa, china e hindú en el arte de la segunda mitad del siglo XX en nuestro país. Su título toma prestada la acepción que en química se emplea del término "principio", según la cual un elemento activo, en solitario o junto con otros, "reacciona" al mezclarse o hacerse soluble y produce formas, colores y estructuras nuevas y muy diferentes entre sí. La muestra se centra en el marco cronológico existente entre la generación abstracta española de los cincuenta y la de los artistas nacidos en torno a mediados de los años sesenta, momento de la creación del Museo de Arte Abstracto Español de Cuenca por Fernando Zóbel. El proyecto incluye a más de sesenta artistas que han trabajado en España y cuya obra está vinculada, en mayor o menor medida, con el arte de Asia oriental e India. Junto a la pintura, la escultura, la obra gráfica y el dibujo, se incluyen otras manifestaciones como la instalación, la fotografía, los nuevos comportamientos artísticos y el arte conceptual. Las más de trescientas piezas asiáticas y occidentales se presentan de manera conjunta, como dos mundos que comparten tiempo y espacio expositivo
Agnes Martin by Agnes Martin( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in German and English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Canadian-born Agnes Martin was one of the pre-eminent painters of the second half of the 20th century, whose work has had a significant influence both on artists of her own time and for subsequent generations. A contemporary of the abstract expressionists though often identified with minimalism, Martin was of the few woman artists who came to prominence in the predominately masculine art world of the late 1950s and 1960s, and became a particularly important role model for younger women and artists. This survey provides and overview of Martin's career, from lesser-known early experimental works through her striped and grided grey paintings and use of colour in various formats, to a group of her final works that reintroduce bold forms. A selection of drawings and watercolours is also included
El Independent Group : la postguerra británica y la estética de la abundancia by David Robbins( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in Spanish and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El Independent Group, o "IG", formado en los años 50 por jóvenes artistas, arquitectos y críticos en torno al Institute de Contemporary Arts de Londres son considerados los precursores del pop art. Con la astucia de la calle, antiacadémios e iconoclastas y sin inhibiciones ante el poder, se mostraban recelosos ante el privilegio social y enamorados de los productos de la cultura de masas despreciados por la élite cultural. Empleaban sus encuentros y exposiciones para desafiar los presupuestos modernistas "oficiales" de la estética británica y para defender por contra una estética de cambio e inclusividad basada en los medios de comunicación y en los consumidores: una estética de la abundancia
