Marlene Dumas : the image as burden by Marlene Dumas( Book )

21 editions published in 2014 in 3 languages and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marlene Dumas (born in 1953 in Capetown, South Africa) is one of the most prominent and influential painters working today. In an era dominated by the mass media and a proliferation of images, her work is a testament to the meaning and potency of painting. Her intense, psychologically-charged works explores themes such as sexuality, love, death and guilt, often referencing art history and current affairs. Dumas often draws on her expansive visual archive for inspiration and uses the nuances of language to great effect. Her paintings and drawings are characterised by their extraordinary immediacy, expressiveness and sometimes controversial subject matter. This fully-illustrated exhibition catalogue accompanies a major exhibition at Tate Modern in 2015, curated by Tate, the Stendelijk Museum and the Fondation Beyeler in close collaboration with the artist. It will provide a survey of the artist's remarkable oeuvre from the mid-70s to the present day. It will include over 100 artworks displaying her most important paintings and drawings alongside lesser-known works from the early period of her career. Essays from a wide range of contributors will examine the key themes and motifs in her work and will reflect on Dumas' entire career

Alexander Calder & Fischli/Weiss by Alexander Calder( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American artist Alexander Calder (1898-1976) and Swiss artists Peter Fischli (1952- ) and David Weiss (1946-2012) have sought and found quintessential ways of rendering a moment of fragile balance in art--a temporary state at once precarious and propitious. With Calder's groundbreaking invention of the mobile in the early nineteen thirties, and Fischli/Weiss's collaborative creative work from 1979 onwards, these artists each lent the theme of fragile balance an iconic form of a very different kind. At first glance, both positions could hardly be more different; later, however, they proved to be two sides of the same coin, the result of different perspectives on the same theme at different times. The elaborately designed, richly illustrated catalogue with accompanying essays provides extensive insight into both oeuvres.

"The sign painting project was carried out over a span of years. ... By mid 1994 Francis Alÿs worked primarily with Juan García, Enrique Huerta and Emilio Rivera, professional sign painters (rótulistas) in Mexico City, and so until the project was closed in 1997. ... The sign painters copied individual paintings by Alÿs, each in their own way. Taking his cue from these personal interpretations, Alÿs developed new motifs and circulated them among the rótulistas, initiating a sequence of images that resulted in seventy-four different motifs."--Page 40
