Visual music : synaesthesia in art and music since 1900 by Olivia Mattis ( Book )
14 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This new book and the exhibition it accompanies trace the history of a revolutionary idea: that fine art should attain the abstract purity of music. Over the past one hundred years adventurous modern and contemporary artists have explored unorthodox means to invent a kinetic, nonrepresentational art modeled upon pure instrumental music." "Music has inspired some of the most progressive art of our time - from the abstract painting of Wassily Kandinsky and Frantisek Kupka to the mid-century experimental films of Oskar Fischinger and Harry Smith to the contemporary installations of Jennifer Steinkamp and Jim Hodges. While early abstract paintings tended to approach music metonymically, the color organs, films, light shows, and installations from the mid-twentieth century to the present day engage a range of perceptual faculties simultaneously to create a plethora of sensations in the viewer." "The most complete examination of this phenomenon to date, Visual Music features ninety major works of art plus related documentation, focusing on abstract and mixed-media art forms and their connections to musical forms as varied as classical, jazz, and electronica. The book includes an introduction by Jeremy Strick; three scholarly essays, each discussing a distinct art-historical period in depth; and an additional essay by Olivia Mattis that approaches the subject from a musicologist's perspective, as well as a chronology, artist biographies, and a selected bibliography."--BOOK JACKET
Ed Ruscha by Neal David Benezra ( Book )
15 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of the most consistently inventive artists of recent times, Los Angeles-based Ed Ruscha has been a pioneer in the use of language and imagery drawn from the popular media. From his early powerful word paintings to his influential artist books of the sixties and seventies to his recent colorful views of generic mountains, Ruscha has investigated the spaces between highways and journeys, images and words, abstraction and representation, public imagery and the contemporary landscape. In this publication, which accompanies a major retrospective exhibition organized by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. and the Museum of Modern Art, Oxford, Neal Benezra, Kerry Brougher, and Phyllis Rosenzweig focus on all aspects of Ruscha's career, revealing him not merely as an artist closely linked with Los Angeles, but as an important international figure in contemporary art."--Amazon
Hall of mirrors : art and film since 1945 by Kerry Brougher ( Book )
14 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Art and Film Since 1945: Hall of Mirrors explores the complex and profound relationship between cinema and the visual arts in the postwar era. It examines how art has shifted toward film, how film has been influenced by art, and how the two have fused into new forms of artistic expression. Published in conjunction with a major exhibition organized by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Art and Film features work by more than one hundred of the century's most remarkable filmmakers and artists, such as Joseph Cornell, Alfred Hitchcock, Akira Kurosawa, Jean-Luc Godard, Michelangelo Antonioni, Richard Hamilton, Diane Arbus, Andy Warhol, Raul Ruiz, John Baldessari, Cindy Sherman, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Stan Douglas. The book's seven essays range widely over themes including Hollywood glamour and stardom, the experimental cinema of the sixties, the influence of psychoanalytic and feminist film theory on art, nostalgia for cinema's golden age, and presentiments of its fragmentation and death. The dialogue between art and film returns frequently to cinema's origins, splintering and re-arranging into new, self-reflexive experiences that highlight and subvert film practice
Jeff Wall by Kerry Brougher ( Book )
21 editions published in 1997 in 3 languages and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jeff Wall is one of the leading international contemporary artists of the nineties. His work consists primarily of large photographic transparencies mounted in lightboxes, drawing on themes from art history, advertising, film, and documentary photography. These are constructed images, making use of sets and actors, which play on several layers of meaning. This book covers the full range of Wall's work and includes previously unseen photographs. Kerry Brougher's essay covers the entire period of development of Wall's work and discusses its relationship to historical and contemporary visual media
Hiroshi Sugimoto by Kerry Brougher ( Book )
12 editions published in 2005 in English and Japanese and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Hiroshi Sugimoto is celebrated for his multiple series of black-and-white photographs that explore the themes of time, memory, dreams, and the history of representation. The Hirshhorn and the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, have co-organized the first major survey of Sugimoto's work ... The exhibition features approximately 120 photographs from 1976 to the present, encompassing the entirety of this artist's thirty-year career. Six photographs by Sugimoto have entered the Hirshhorn's collection since 2003, including his powerful image of New York City's World Trade Center towers and works from the Theaters series."

Damage control : art and destruction since 1950 by Kerry Brougher ( Book )
8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Timely and wide-ranging, this volume explores in-depth the theme of destruction in international contemporary art. While destruction as a theme can be traced throughout art history, from the early atomic age it has remained a pervasive and compelling element of contemporary visual culture. Damage Control features the work of more than 40 international artists working in a range of media--painting, sculpture, photography, film, installation, and performance--who have used destruction as a means of responding to their historical moment and as a strategy for inciting spectacle and catharsis, as a form of rebellion and protest, or as an essential part of re-creation and restoration. Including works by such diverse artists as Jean Tinguely, Andy Warhol, Bruce Conner, Yoko Ono, Gordon Matta-Clark, Pipilotti Rist, Yoshitomo Nara, and Laurel Nakadate, the book reaches beyond art to enable a broader understanding of culture and society in the aftermath of World War II, under the looming fear of annihilation in the atomic age, and in the age of terrorism and other disasters, real and imagined
