Thornton Dial : image of the tiger by Thornton Dial( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph, published in conjunction with an exhibition at several museums, is devoted to the assemblages of Dial, an African American ironworker from Alabama who until recently produced his powerful abstractions in obscurity. The color reproductions of Dial's vibrant constructions are superb, but the accompanying essays obscure rather than illuminate the art. Art critic McEvilley uses the jargon of contemporary art criticism to discuss the self-taught artist's place in the art world. Baraka's convoluted diatribe rants about the fate of black artists in a white supremacist society. Extended captions by collectors Paul and William Arnett are based on Dial's own statements and help to explain his imagery, especialy his use of the tiger as a symbol of the black person's struggle in an alien environment. Dial's exuberant works, created from paint and found materials, and their direct titles ("Struggling Tiger in Hard Times,'' "Struggling Tiger Know sic His Way Out'') speak eloquently for themselves. -- Publisher's Weekly review
Fever : the art of David Wojnarowicz by David Wojnarowicz( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A central figure in New York's East Village art scene of the 1980s, Wojnarowicz was a painter, sculptor, photographer, writer, installation artist, musician, and video- and filmmaker. After being diagnosed as HIV-positive in the late 1980s, Wojnarowicz engaged in widely publicized debates over medical research and funding, censorship in the arts, and politically-sanctioned homophobia, lending his art a sharply political edge. The last few years of his life were an intense flurry of activity in a variety of mediums, fueled by rage and alienation that helped set the tone for contemporary art's exploration of social and private identities."--
Andrea Zittel : critical space by Andrea Zittel( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first comprehensive publication on the influential contemporary artist focuses on the experimental nature of Andrea Zittel's signature objects, inhabitable sculptures, and other projects. In her work as an artist, Zittel investigates domestic and urban life in Western societies. Exploring the various aspects of living, the artist designs her own household settings to serve as a test case for her experimental living structures. Her work has provoked debates about the changed meaning of domestic and collective space and the possibilities for new adaptations to urban conditions today. Richly illustrated, Andrea Zittel: Critical Space includes nearly two hundred reproductions of Zittel's works of art, many of which are published here for the first time. The book includes over one hundred sculptures and drawings, documentation of early work, and recent site-specific work in the Mojave Desert of California. With essays that touch upon urbanism, architecture, design, and consumer culture, this catalog offers an extensive analysis of Zittel's contribution to contemporary trends in art and architecture

Collage : the unmonumental picture by Richard Flood( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Product Description: The simplicity of collage, together with its strong graphic presence, lent the medium a sense of revolutionary possibility when it was first adopted by avant-garde artists almost 100 years ago. During the twentieth century collage gradually became identified with such artistic practices as Cubism, Dada and Surrealism, and today it has gained new momentum as an energetic art form with a strong political dimension. This stunning book explores the role of collage in contemporary visual culture. Featuring the work of both established talents and a new generation of artists, it examines how collage is used to confront and comment on a world that is dominated by the mass media and obsessed with conspicuous consumerism. Includes the work of Thomas Hirschhorn, Kim Jones, Wangechi Mutu, Martha Rosler, Nancy Spero and John Stezaker

Sweet oblivion : the urban landscape of Martin Wong by Martin Wong( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The visionary paintings of Martin Wong, one of the unsung geniuses of New York's East Village art scene of the 1980s, are collected here and examined in depth for the first time. Entirely self-taught, Wong creates intricate compositions that combine gritty social documents, cosmic witticisms, and highly charged symbolic languages - customized manual alphabets for the deaf, street graffiti, Nuyorican poetry, hand-lettered signs, meticulously rendered brick facades, rearrangements of Zodiac signs - sometimes within a single painting. The urban landscape of Loisaida, the Hispanic section of the Lower East Side where Wong lives, is the source of his imagery. Whatever the theme - the survival of a neighborhood besieged by drugs and crime, homoerotic fantasies of men in uniform, the multiplicity of meaning in language, the kitsch and ornamentation of Chinatown USA - Wong's work is visually startling and movingly autobiographical

The Ungovernables : New Museum, February 15-April 22, 2012 by N.Y.) New Museum of Contemporary Art (New York( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The 2012 New Museum Triennial features thirty-four artists, artist groups, and temporary collectives - totaling over fifty participants - born between the mid-1970s and mid-1980s, many of whom have never before exhibited in the US. The Ungovernables, ' the second triennial exhibition at the New Museum, acknowledges the impossibility of fully representing a generation in formation and instead embraces the energy of that generation's urgencies. These urgencies are formal and philosophical, material and ideological. They stem from the unique experiences of this generation who came of age in the aftermath of the independence and revolutionary movements that promised to topple Western colonialism.--New Museum website
