Lorna Simpson by Lorna Simpson( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lorna Simpson, which accompanies a major mid-career retrospective organized by the American Federation of Arts, offers a comprehensive examination of this artist's remarkable achievement over a period of more than twenty years of production. The works featured include examples of the artist's earliest photograph and text works, in which she introduces the basic elements of combining a figure whose body is often cropped or whose face is hidden from view with fragments of text that confound the viewer's expectations of narrative and identity. Simpson's illustrious career is charted up to the present with film and video installations from 1997 to 2004, as well as the artist's most recent photographs."--Jacket
Kiki Smith by Helaine Posner( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Engaging the most urgent social and spiritual issues of our day, the powerfully expressive work of artist Kiki Smith has helped restore the human body to a central place in contemporary art. Born in 1954, she created in the 1980s individual artworks and stunning installations, in mediums ranging from paper and glass to cast bronze, that used anatomy as a starting point for a broad exploration of the cultural, political, and social meanings of the human body. In the 1990s, having emerged as a leading artist of her generation, she extended her inquiry to the natural world. Direct and accessible, populist in the best sense, Smith's work engages the viewer in a sometimes viscerally disturbing way.Helaine Posner uncovers the origins of Smith's work and proposes an interpretive framework that locates it within the artistic traditions that have nourished Smith. David Frankel's interview provides new insight into Smiths artistic thought. As the first monographic survey of her career, Kiki Smith is an essential reference in contemporary

After the revolution : women who transformed contemporary art by Eleanor Heartney( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now available in a revised and fully updated edition, this book examines the rise of women artists in the late 20th century, viewed through the work of 12 key figures. "Why have there been no great women artists?" asked the prominent art historian Linda Nochlin in an intentionally provocative 1971 essay. In this book, four prominent critics and curators describe the strides made by women artists since the advent of the feminist movement and assess the changes that have occurred in their critical reception, commercial appeal, and institutional support. Following a comprehensive essay that looks back at the recent history of women artists, the authors examine the careers of an international selection of artists--Marina Abramović, Louise Bourgeois, Ellen Gallagher, Ann Hamilton, Jenny Holzer, Elizabeth Murray, Shirin Neshat, Judy Pfaff, Dana Schutz, Cindy Sherman, Kiki Smith, and Nancy Spero--considering each figure's accomplishments and her influence on contemporaries and younger artists
Corporal politics : [artists] Louise Bourgeois [and others] by Donald Hall( Book )

14 editions published in 1992 in English and German and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Corporal Politics documents an exhibition at the MIT List Visual Arts Center featuring the works of eight internationally recognized artists: Louise Bourgeois, Kiki Smith, Rona Pondick, Annette Messager, Robert Gober, David Wojnarowicz, Lilla LoCurto, and William Outcault. The work of these artists showcases a striking, recent artistic phenomenon: the disturbing isolation of body parts, internal organs, and bodily fluids to express the vulnerability of our bodies to physical violence, sexual oppression, and ultimate loss. From a sculpture of glass sperm to images confronting AIDS, the works of art represented here poignantly question ideals of coherent identity and an integrated self in our times."--Back cover

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The culture of violence : exhibition( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gregory Green builds homemade book and suitcase bombs, Leon Golub paints monumentally trenchant street scenes, Richard Misrach shoots color photographs of Playboy magazines used for target practice, and Sue Williams sculpts a heartbreakingly abused woman in fetal position. The Culture of Violence presents a broad, multicultural, interdisciplinary approach to the subject of violence as manifested in the media, in the lives of children and their families, and the work of these and other artists, including Bruce Nauman, Ida Applebroog, Mel Chin, Kristin Oppenheim, and Lucinda Devlin. Organized around thematic categories that cut across class and gender and range from political to personal expressions of violence, including terrorism and hate crimes, government-sanctioned execution, youth and gang violence, street crime, and domestic violence, The Culture of Violence includes a conversation on violence and culture in medieval epics and contemporary media, and a proscriptive essay on coping with family violence
If the face had wheels by Dana Schutz( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offering the first comprehensive look at one of the most exciting young artists working today, this book presents a decade-long retrospective of Dana Schutz's work. Dana Schutz plumbs the depths of humor and horror, fantasy and reality in her colorful, expressive paintings. This exhibition catalog features paintings and drawings created by Schutz since 2001. Each of her wildly inventive series is represented, beginning with Frank as a Proboscis Monkey, which wittily depicts the last man on earth, to her current Verb paintings, in which a woman attempts to perform three incongruous activities at once. Schutz's commentary on twenty-firstcentury politics, celebrity, religion, and mores is both absurdist and prescient. Her works are splashed with vibrant color and enriched with tactile brushwork. Schutz combines traditional technique with innovative content to create ambitious, idiosyncratic paintings for our anxious age. Schutz is the recipient of the 2011 Roy R. Neuberger Prize awarded every two years to an artist for an early career survey and monograph. This volume also features an essay by art historian Cary Levine and an interview with the artist by exhibition curator Helaine Posner

Robin Rhode : animating the everyday by Robin Rhode( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... focuses on the remarkable digital videos that Rhode identifies in his taxonomy of his practice as "animations." These animations articulate drawing and movement: juxtapose sound and image; recycle everyday objects such as bicycles, chairs, musical instruments, and sports equipment; and refashion artistic precursors and contemporaries such as Marcel Duchamp, Gerrit Rietveld, Mies van der Rohe, William Kentridge, and Richard Serra. Produced in studios, in the streets, and in Rhode's parents' yard in Johannesburg, the animations feature an uncanny conjunction of the familiar and the strange and vividly stage the perils and delights of everyday life as magnified by the power of Rhode's imagination. This volume surveys the range of the artists's animations since 2002, which register events or performances that unfold in time, and amplifies these with a selection of photographic series that correspond to or complement his time-based art."--Back cover
