The American century : art & culture, 1900-1950 by Lisa Phillips( Book )

28 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The second half of the twentieth century has been a time of rapid change and accelerated cycles of creativity. In this volume, Lisa Phillips keeps pace with the dizzying energy of these decades by focusing on the avant-garde - the artists who propelled American art after World War II and who continually challenge our basic assumptions about what art is and what the role of the artist should be within the turbulent social atmosphere of twentieth-century America. Sidebar essays by a variety of experts in related fields highlight the broad cultural context - from rock 'n' roll to underground film to postmodern dance - in which vanguard American art flourished."--Jacket

Chris Burden : extreme measures by Chris Burden( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chris Burden (b. 1946) is one of the most important artists of our time. In his over four-decade career, he has consistently challenged physical and psychological limits, redefining art in the process. This catalogue includes ten essays and personal reflections by noted art historians, artists, and writers who explore the significance and influence of his practice, and is published on the occasion of the exhibition "Chris Burden: Extreme Measures" at the New Museum-the artists first solo museum exhibition in New York and the first US survey of his work in over twenty years. As a student in Southern California in the early 1970's, Burden indelibly wrote himself into art history and popular consciousness with a series of performances in which he used his own body as subject and medium. From these epoch-defining works to the monumental sculptures he has constructed since the late 70's, he has continuously embodied cultural reflection, risk, and reinvention. This long-overdue book and exhibition reveal the life's work of a great artist whose emergence at once destabilized and reaffirmed convictions about art, and who has never relented in pushing art beyond its boundaries to new extremes

Maya Lin : topologies by Maya Ying Lin( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first comprehensive monograph on the acclaimed American artist and architect, known for her environmental works and memorials that distill a tranquil yet texturally rich minimalism. Maya Lin is one of the most important public artists of this century. As an architecture student at Yale, Lin designed the Vietnam Veterans Memorial as a class project, entering it in the largest design competition in American history. Her winning proposal, a V-shaped wall of black stone etched with the names of 58,000 dead soldiers, has since become the most visited memorial in the nation's capital. This visually rich volume presents 50 projects from the last three decades that demonstrate the scope of Lin’s creative process, featuring her own sketches and drawings and linked by her ideal of making a place for individuals within the landscape. With her environmental works Storm King Wavefield, Eleven-Minute Line (Sweden), and Pin River–Yangtze (Beijing), Lin maintains a balance between art and architecture, drawing inspiration from culturally diverse sources. From the moment she entered the national spotlight with her design for the Vietnam Memorial, Lin has been proposing ways of thinking and imagining that resist categories, genres, and borders"--Provided by publisher

Experience by Carsten Höller( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carsten Höller has created a world that is equal parts laboratory and fun house. He explores important themes such as architecture, childhood, love, happiness, hallucination, and the future. Trained as a scientist, his work often takes the form of experiments designed to test the limits of human sensorial experience through carefully controlled situations. The exhibition presents a selection of pieces that highlight the different visual or experiential dimensions of Höller's groundbreaking work. A number of signature works are presented, including his stroboscopic light installations, disorienting architectural environments, and a mirrored carousel. This beautifully illustrated book is organized around approximately twenty significant themes developed in his work. Each of the themes is explored by an extraordinary group of curators and writers, including Daniel Birnbaum, Gary Carrion-Murayari, Germano Celant, Lynne Cooke, Hal Foster, Massimiliano Gioni, Jessica Morgan, Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Philippe Parreno, Gloria Sutton, and Rosemarie Trockel, among many others. This book is in association with the New Museum.--Publisher description
